I suddenly had similar problems with my SR300. I replaced the flat ribbon cable (looks orange) between the body and the LCD display and camera works like new. The ribbon cable is subject to cracking the internal wires where it flexes when you open and close the LCD display. There was also a new part number for the cable so I suspect it is a known problem.

well if i'm not mistaking it could be the LCD board connection at the screen . but the replacement + labor will go from 120 to 170,
have you tried to open the screen, really slowly and see if it shows any life !.
you can try to get an stimate at sony, and see how mush it will cost you repair the machine.
there is not easy way to fix it, the screws are small and they can be lost really easy.sorry

Tips for a great answer:
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.

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.
