Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Preview screen half white, with black blob!

Hello, My sony Cyber-shot DSC-P73 was in my pocket when I fell while skiing yesterday. I was fine! but there is now a big black blob in the middle of the preview screen, and the left half of the screen is permanently white. (Maybe I fell on it or a drop of water got inside???) The pictures themselves come out fine, but you have to guess what you're aiming at when taking the photo, and it's pretty impossible to read option menus on the camera. Does this sound like a fixable problem or a write-off? Thanks!

I think ribbon connector of LCD is misaligned in your camera.
If you are comfortable with it, please apart camera and readjust ribbon connector at main board.

Hey i have a sony DSC-P73 and water damage


Water damage is very bad for a digital camera. Even if you let it dry completely before turning it on, sometimes the debris in the water can fry the circuits.

Same as one that's been posted... When I change to picture mode on my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 it automatically powers off. By changing back to view mode it's possible to power on again. Not the batteries....
