The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and will require disassembling the camera and LCD assembly to remove and replace the flex cable. This can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified service technician.

The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place or impaired in some way. This will require disassembling the camera to remove the lens assembly and then disassembling the lens block to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively but it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified service technician.

It sounds like you are using an aftermarket (non-sony) battery pack. The camcorder you are using probably requires the Genuine Sony 'Infolithium' Battery pack (usually in the box of the camera). If you are getting this message with the proper battery installed, i would contact SONY

Camera gives Moisture error sign if it really have moisture condensation inside or its moisture sensor itself got defective.

if moisture is inside, blow hot air in camera mechanism for 5-6 minutes by hair dryer (not so closed with mechanism) and check / test.

If problem still exist it means moisture sensor is defective and i know its Sony high-end model camera and know how to fix it yet I would recommend to take camera to Sony Service center for proper repair.

First and foremost shut down the device. Remove the battery if possible for 1 minute. Then restart/power up device. If still no luck or response. Go into the setting and look for the reset to default setting if there is no option for touch screen controls. Best of luck
