If you are able to see picture in the viewfinder (eyepiece) on closing the LCD, then the cable connecting the LCD to rest of the camera has gone bad and needs replacement. Take it to a Sony service centre. They will charge Rs 750 for service charges and about Rs 700 for the cable. You can save the service charges if you replace it yourself, but I'll advise against it unless you are conversant with these sort of precision jobs.

did you happen to drop the cam? there could be a technical error with the LCD screen. take it to the nearest Sony service center and have them take a look at it. you can try resetting the cam and see if it changes anything.

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 or the LCD module itself 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.
