I am a pro photographer and one of my cameras is an A100.
I have noticed this same problem and sometimes when I am shooting fast the shutter delays.
I found the problem in my card. My wife bought me a card based on price.
I sugest you use a card that reads faster than the camera can write.
You can get the specs on the Sony Camera Site.

That's not too bad of a problem to live with if you don't end up fixing it. You probably know this already but what you see through the viewfinder is exactly what shows up on the lcd screen after you take a picture. Have you:
*Tested the camera to see if any of the options and/or buttons work? *Taken any pictures with it and uploaded them to your computer?
Do you have a user's manual that can help you navigate through the options? If not, feel free to send me a message.
As far as repairing the screen, familiarize yourself with other Sony screens if you can't find anything on the A100. Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UR8mqXd4Jrw
Try turning the camera off, take the battery out, reinsert it. If that doesn't work, the manual says to contact your local Sony dealer. You might also want to try taking the lens off, making sure nothing is hindering its communication to the camera body. Try using another lens if you have one.
You will find a usb card reader will work much better. Do you have the sony software installed? The ARW files can not be read by any other software except something like Photoshop PS3 or later. I am a pro photographer and the A100 is my favorite camera.
You should have no problem, if they are maxuum af. The others should work too- I have an Alpha 100. The alpha 100 works great. I used to run my own photography business, and searched around for quite a while before I found the alpha. There is an adapter ring that i bought, that makes it possible for me to use my favorite old pentax screw mount 135mm f1.6, or any other screw mount, on my alpha 100.
The only drawback I found was you cannot use any other flash(at this time) than the onboard one-or the sony only flashes-which are a little pricey. Different size hot shoe is the reason. I haven't found an adapter yet-but I'm sure someone will make one. The alpha doen't have a real time display- or asa of 3200. I'm hopeing for a firmware update/upgrade to correct this. BUT the newer models with a higher than a100 number do have realtime lcd, and do go to asa3200. And they use either sony mem.stick or CF cards happy shooting
