Sony Handycam camcorders have an LCD screen for framing your shots and, in some models, navigating the camcorder's menu system. You can also use the LCD screen to replay your videos. The Handycam also plays the sound recorded on your video when you play it back. You can turn down the volume on your Sony Handycam so that the recorded sound does not play when reviewing your videos.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Pull open the LCD screen on the left side of your Sony Handycam to turn on the camcorder. Notice the control panel in the area that was covered by the screen.

  2. 2

    Press the ">" button on the control panel. A thumbnail list of your videos appears on the screen.

  3. 3

    Touch the thumbnail of the video you want to watch to begin playback.

  4. 4

    Tap the "VOL" button on the screen and then the "-" button repeatedly until the volume turns off.

  5. 5

    Touch the back button, which is located in the upper left corner of the screen and is a left-facing arrow, to exit the volume controls.
