Obviously, you'd need a separate flash unit, since you can't take the built-in flash off the camera. Just as obviously, you'd need a way to trigger that flash.

Some flash units have a remote sensor that will respond to the camera's flash. The a300 has a wireless mode for triggering such flashes. There are remote flash systems that include a radio transmitter that fits onto the camera's hot shoe and a receiver that the flash mounts onto. Some flash units have a jack so you can use a cord to connect the flash to the camera.

The degree of automation depends on the system. The a300's wireless mode works best with Sony's own flash units. The separate wireless and cord methods will work with just about any flash, though you'll probably have to set the exposure and flash output yourself.

Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 LCD screen does not power up as if there is no power going to the screen. the camera takes fine pictures. to view the pictures, you will have to plug the camera into a computer.

It is for sure that the LCD display is not working. Hence you need to probe into the camera to confirm but attempt only if equipped with the right tools and some experience , becasue as of now your camera can shoot good pictures and you must not end up tampering to damage the camera.
If not get help from a friend or the nearest sony service centre, get estimate and replace accordinly. You will be lucky if the fault is a power link failure, if the display needs replacement then the cost is the issue, try if you can get a salvaged display unit.
hope this helps. Good day
