The flexible cable needs to be replaced, as correctly pointed out by x-tian. If your handy cam is under warranty, Sony will change the cable for free.

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body 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.
