Re: LCD Display pschedelic colors

If there are random colour streaks moving around it can be due to defective CCD imaging IC. You need a skilled workshop to replace this and we can get you the parts from SONY and service manuals.

How can I get the LCD to turn on?

The Display button toggles the information shown on the LCD (or turns it off entirely). Make sure you haven't inadvertently pressed it and turned off the display. It works as follows:

  • Press once for Normal view in LCD viewfinder
  • Press twice to turn on Rule of Thirds grid lines
  • Press three times to turn off LCD display
  • Press and hold 1 sec. to decrease/increase LCD brightness

Why is image not displaying on LCD monitor?

Need more info. Does the menu display? Then LCD probably good. If the menu does not display, then LCD (or its driver circuitry) is probably bad. Not display after taking a photo? Or not display when you push the arrow button to turn on display. Check to make sure card is in camera. Set menu to factory default to make sure some setting in the custom functions isn't turning off the LCD. Also check the brightness level.

No display, but photo can be taken

If you have your LCD turned on and it only 'flicks one time for millisecond, after that no display'...your LCD is dying and not worth the repair.

Unnatural colors and a grainy LCD display

Dear concern. It seems like that the lcd has been either burned out or has been hurt badly.. try checking it on another camera whether the result is same or not .. If the result is same then the manfufacturer has built-in lcd with low depth quality.

Vertical lines and purple artifacts when the camera is aimed at bright subjects

Current LCD display technology can reproduce about 300 different levels of brightness. Brightly lit scenes or light sources may exceed this brightness range, causing a temporary disruption (artifacts) in the live display. Artifacts are part of the display, but they are not part of your recorded image. If you take a picture while you see artifacts on the screen and then display the picture on the LCD, you will no longer see the artifacts.
