    To clarify, there's no backlight, the screen is blank but the touch screen still responds (forward wind, etc).

    try pushing the "lcd/veiwer"button,or looking for the setting for the choices.

    if that doesnt work,you may have a damaged screen.

This can ONLY be repaired by someno with good repair,and dexterity skills!
try this:while the cam is on,use a flashlight to shine onto the screen at a "drastic"angle,if you see "somthing"on the panel which resembles what you "should"be seeing,and like you say,the touch part works,THEN you have a burnt-out "back-light",or a partialy broken ribbon cable (connects cam to the screen).

the back-light MAY be impossible to find,along with the ribbon cable!!

if the camera is worth THAT much to you,and you dont feel up to the "quest"of finding the parts,and fixing it yourself(repair will NOT be easy!!),check a qualifiyed repair shop for estimates!!

you may be better off buying a new one,and giving the unit to a dear friend,or child,OR just using it the way it is!.

this is NOT an easy fix for the average person!!!

like any new,and semi-new "mini"electronics units,it's meant(and biult)to be disposed when somthing goes bad,repair is ALMOST impossible!

sorry,good luck!!

Why did you change the main pc board? If the display doesn't work, but viewfinder does, there are usually 3 possible causes- LCD itself, LCD board or LCD cable.
You should give it to Sony and let them find which one of these is bad.
