Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera
Problem #1. The screen turns all white, for any reason. I can use it for a couple of days and it works fine, then, suddenly I can't see the screen. I sent the camera back for repair, Sony fixed it but 2 months later the same problem re-appears. Problem #2. The lens got stuck inside the camera, when turned off the lens little door stays open. Problem #3. My camera doesn't want to turn on, it sounds like it's going to for about 3 seconds but then it turns off, I still see white screen. Sony Guarantee already expired and I don't know what to do, I don't want to pay $110 dls.
I was really surprised and happy to see it work. Just knock on the Cybershot logo for it to work.

One of you guys said this
"1. Hold camera firmly in left hand
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo."
I really thought you were joking, but still went ahead and did it just for the heck of it as I was so frustrated with the camera. To my surprise, this worked like magic. Hats of to who ever said this. You are a genius and Sony should probably beg you and hire you.. Who ever this is... Thank you so much.

After tapping for a minute on the to the right of "Cyber Shot" the white screen was replaced by the usual LCD screen.

1. Hold camera firmly in left hand 2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo. It worked, now the LCD is working again for free. don't need to pay Sony $111.00 for repair service.

The cable connecting the lcd with the board can be coroded-needs cleaning. The lens problem can be solved by replacing the micro switches in front of the lens unit. If you need more help, please advice. Arpi
