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
I successfully replaced broken Sony Cybershot LCD screen myself. I purchased replacement screen on e-bay for less than $30, including shipping. Then I found a recording on how to replaced this screen on Youtube. In addition I recorded replacement with a camcorder to make sure that I put all parts back where they suppose to be. It was more than a year ago, and my camera works beautifully still.
I also cracked my Canon Powershot A630 lcd screen by dropping the camera. I saw a suggestion to buy a new replacement lens and either have it professionally replaced or try it myself. I ended up doing the replacement myself following instructions I found online. Now it works. Total cost US $63.
I would not recommend trying the replacement yourself, however. There are a few very delicate plastic parts in there which I ended up damaging. Luckily the camera and lcd screen are working great now. But it is probably worth having a professional camera repair shop do the whole job or insert the screen you've purchased. Good luck!
look on the back of the LCD to find the part number. once you find that type it into google and there is like 2 companies that make them. Also several other nikon camera could have the exact lcd and you can get one of them broke off of ebay cheap. hope this helps
