This is the result of the gears in the viewfinder that run a barrel style gear are misaligned or mashing.
1. Replace or clean out and reseat the gears of the viewfinder. This requires a small bit of technical camera repair expertise.
2. Now do not laugh at this one. Turn the camera ON and immediately while the grinding is going on slap the camera very hard in the palm of your other hand. Do this repeatedly until the issue fixes itself. I have recommended and done this many many times and fixed a bunch of cameras this way. LOL The gears of the motor and the viewfinder barrel gear become misaligned so a good hard jolt seems to get them back in alignment and you should be good to go.
Good luck. Stop the laughing it works. LOL

Yes, power buttons do break on these cameras. Contact your local Sony service center and see how much will it cost to replace the top panel. If they ask too much, feel free to contact me at email@example.com
I work in a Sony service center.

Hi, here is a temporary solution that might work for you as it did for me:
1: turn on the camera in picture/movie review mode
2: turn the screen off (not the camera)
3: change from review picture/movie mode to take picture/movie mode
4: turn the screen back on.
You should now be able to take pictures and record.
Hope this is of some help.
