Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera
As I understand, the flex connector to the LCD screen is rubbing against a support rib on the inside of the camera and causing it to short. This is a design flaw of the camera. For a quick temp fix, GENTLY press on the lower right corner of the LCD screen. For a more permanent solution, you have to pop open the camera and do something about that support rib. A bit of hassle, but it beats buying a whole new camera, when you have a good one that just has a small engineering defect.

I had the same problem but now it's fixed!!! Removing the batteries did not help. I simply tapped the screen with my fingers and all of a sudden the LCD screen is working again. Before it was all whited out when I turned the camera on. Lucky - but I was just about to throw the camera out!! Hope you read this and it helps!
