Well, if you can arrange new LCD then you can change it by yourself. You need small screw drivers.

Go to eBay or somewhere similar where you can buy a LCD screen for your Sony-W50 without having to swing by the bank and take out a loan.
Next, assuming you now have the LCD display, open the camera by removing the screws on side and bottom. Open camera carefully. You will obviously see the LCD display. It will be connected to the PCB with a ribbon cable. That ribbon cable will go to a header. Be very careful when releasing the ribbon cable header because it is very easy to damage the flimsy connector.
New LCD should plug in directly like to old one. Do your self a favor and insure the unit power up and the display is not garbled. You can get a garbled display if the ribbon cable into the header is not seated properly. Once you have observed a clean display, reassemble the camera and have fun. * * * * * * * * *C A U T I O N * * * * * * * * *  BE AWARE OF THE HIGH VOLTAGE ON THE FLASH CAPACITOR.

The likely answer is NO

2. So then you replace the camera
Unless the item is still under warranty, the only economic way is Service by Replacement
The costs involved are too high to consider a repair

Internal Screen Damaged


It should be repairable. Most small consumer products like that are repaired by Sony though as they do not release parts for them to repair centers.

Try checking their website and see what they have for a repair service.

Or a different approach would be to see if you can find a 'broken' unit online and just salvage the screen.
