If the LCD is all white when this occurs it is the LCD that is at fault. Verify this by shooting a couple photos, if the photos look good when viewed on a computer, the CCD is not at fault. The LCD module has had problems with the harness that connects it rubbing againts the metal frame of the camera and causing similar problems. Hope this helps you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS ACTUALLY WORKED!!! At first, when I tapped the Sony Logo, the camera shut off. But then, suddenly the screen turned on and I realized that it was stuck in the time section of the menu. That's why I couldn't take pictures!

WOW!! Thank you for the incredible cost-saving solution! I was about to plunk down $120 for a repair!

I fixed the camera myself as follows:

1. Hold camera firmly in left hand
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.

It worked, now the LCD is working again for free.
