Of course you need to check first, is it completely black screen. could be that its not even turning on.lucky if lets say beep feature was set to on . check if you press any buttons, is there any beeping sound. try to even press the playback and check if any icons will appear.or press the lcd button repeatedly and check if something will happen . if not , do power reset. take out the battery and hold the power button for 30sec. its like refreshing the memory of camera.. if still same thing. try changing batteries. camera also turns on by pressing playback button. if all ts fails, camera needs service. could be something wrong with its sensor.

I have replaced my old broken display, the camera works but the light of the display dont work. Its very dark.


The backlight is a different device located below the display. It is supplied with a high voltage (about 100V) over a separate cable. In case of the W55 both flat cables are soldered together and have one multi contact connector on the main board.
Check this connection first - the flat cable should be clean and completely inserted.
If this dosn't help: is the backlight of the broken display still working? It's a bit tricky but possible to disassemble the display, remove the backlight desolder and exchange it.

I have a Sony Handycam DCR-HC32. The LCD screen has gone black. I can still touch the bottons on the black screen and they work, but I can't see anything on the display.


The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I have the same problem this guy had: I have a Sony Cybershot 8.1 megapixels. Every once in a while the screen will turn black when I turn the camera on. The display will come up (shaky hand, flash, etc.)...


The camera either has a stuck aperture inside the lens or a bad CCD sensor.

The aperture is the opening that allows light to enter the lens. If it's stuck closed no light goes in, so no display on the LCD and solid black pictures. The way to fix it is to replace the lens. You can try tapping or banging the camera on it's side on your hand or even gently on a table. This might unstick the aperture for a short time, but it will just stick again later.

If the CCD is bad the sensor won't show anything other than solid black, or sometimes purple/pink smeared lines. Again the solution is to replace the lens assembly, or look for a used CCD online and just switch that out instead.

Hope this helps!
