flip out LCD loose

anyone experience the flip out LCD on the camera suddenly
much easier to move and kinda loose on the hinge?

I just got my cam back from an associate using it and now
the LCD is pretty loose.

It was always very firm before.

anyone know how to fix this?

Mark, this is an experience rather than advice and comes with a health warning!

I had the same experience once with a Canon XM1 fold out screen and was able to successfully tighten it up.

With that Canon camera it was a matter of getting inside the flip-out monitor casing. Then at the camera end there were bolts/ screws that could be adjusted. BE WARNED, THIS MAY NOT BE THE CASE WITH your JVC!

However, if you feel like having a very careful look, You would need an X headed jewellers screwdriver. There are two monitor casing X headed screws on the leading edge of the JVC GY-HD 201E flip-out screen, and two more on the hinge end. They are PROBABLY how you remove the screen casing and the solution MAY be reviled.
