Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blank Screen I have a Sony Cyber-shot model #DSC-S40. The screen is bright white with an occational blur of the image I am aiming at. I have taken the batteries out several times and that cleared it up one time but has since went back to the white screen. I can still take pictures using the veiw finder but I can not see them on the screen nor can I access any menu functions. The camera still takes awsome pictures so I don't want to just throw it away. Please help! Thank You, Tim

I have been facing the same problem with same model and this is permanent problem it seems with this model (Sony Cybershot DSC S40). It causes because of the following:

SYMPTOMS
LCD display is either blank or WHITE. When the cabinet is opened or LCD flexible cable is
touched, the symptom disappears. This is caused by connection defect or poor contact between connector and LCD flex cable due to the pressure or stress created by the rib in the front cabinet
to the connector.


Send me a email and I shall send you the solution (two files) received from Sony authorized person. You have to open the camera to solve this. Do not open the camera . Just get the idea about where the problem is. I never opened the camera even after seeing this solution 2 yrs back. However, I have a plan for going to service centre with this solution. I hope they can open the camera and solve this. But not getting time to go there in service centre.

I used the following temporary solution and it works to get LCD in its normal condition:

LCD looks like a rectangle is not it? Hold the camera in its normal position as you are going to take a picture (camera is switched on and you are not seeing anything in the LCD, which looks white or dull). Now GENTLY PRESS by the thumb of your right hand at a place near to LCD at the BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER of the rectangle (remember not on the LCD (rectangle) but just outside of it) until you see the normal colour of your LCD. Do few times starting with less pressure and then slightly increase it untill you see a normal LCD. I have been following this procedure for the last 2 yrs and not feeling to go for serving. (This solution I found in a forum only).

Good luck!

Screen is white and doesn't display area being photographed. Can take pictures.


From camerahacker.com:
1. Hold camera firmly in left hand.
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.
Worked for me :)
