Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
So it switches on, the menu appears on LCD screen but then its just a black screen - the lens cap is definately off! When trying to take a picture, it just appears black. Old photos display without any problems. Will be 3 years old in September. Have camera insurance but does not cover mechanical/electrical problems.
Send it back to sony centre by getting an repair fill-out sheet of the sony website it is because the chip has malfunctioned lots of them are doing this

May be the lens block or CCD can be defective. Call the nearest service center and we can only assist in spares and service manuals.
