Looks like a CCD image sensor failure a common fault in digicams these days. Point the camera somewhere and blindly take a shot. Open the image on your computer and see if it appears all dark. If it does then its an image sensor failure. On the contrary if the image appears properly then your LCD screen is the culprit.

My digital camera screen will not turn on


This is a problem with the internal lcd components or the lcd screen itself. Have you downloaded the pictures off the camera? Your options are repair or replacement. Follow this link for repair through sony:

It sounds like a problem called Banding. In banding, charge is spilled from saturated CCD cell to teh neighbouring cells. There is nothing you can do about it except exchange the camera.

Try contacting Sony support.

Green, I spent some time today with a sony tech rep on line. We went thru the motions of battery, memory card and still no help. So I'm sending my camera back to sony for repair. Mine is still under warranty. Hopefully yours is too. Good Luck. Mike aka m1stones1

No display on LCD


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.
