Sony cybershot LCD problem

My camera worked last night and today I turned it on and the screen is a greyish white color..I hit the reset button, charged it, and hit the logo as suggested on here..nothing works...any suggestions?? I'm also wondering if anyone knows how to fix this. I took a video and turned off my camera. It was actually of the ultrasound monitor since my husband couldn't come with me. When I turned it on, the lcd was completely white. Couldn't view photos/videos. I plugged it into my computer and could view the video fine. The lcd eventually went back to normal, however after a couple of weeks, the lcd has gone white and stayed white.....its been over a month. My husband needed a camera for an unplanned trip and had to buy a POS since we couldn't afford anothr cybershot on such quick notice :( HELP!

  1. Ensure the camera is turned on.
  2. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures.
  3. Ensure the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. NOTE: Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon [FIG. 1]. This button could be a standalone button or incorporated as one of the control arrow buttons depending on the model of camera.
  4. If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged.
  5. Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera.
  6. If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet.
  7. Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected.
  8. Perform a reset procedure on the camera.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required. The Sony Service Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

Try to reset the camera to original settings:
How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.

Sony cybershot dsc-s40 lcd screen is all white


okay the lcd being white means its replacment of lcd time and not the camersa itself. But to rule that out try taking a pic if you cannot you might got a shutter issue as well.

Thanks hope the information helped

PLEASE HELP!


It sounds like the lcd is broken or loose. The backlight is still working properly, which is why you only see white. You could try to open the camera and push in the ribbon for the lcd, or bring it to someone who knows what they are doing. HOWEVER: if it is still under warranty, do nothing and send it to sony.

There is a problem inside the camera with the wire harness/cable connection to the screen. They are know to come loose over time. If you tap rather briskly on the front of the camera right on the word Cybershot it should reconnect it. Worked on mine but you may need to do it now & again. The altenative is to have the camera dismantled and the connector pushed back onto the screen.

Now a couple months later I have a different problem, it says to turn the power on and off again when I turn it on to take pictures.

Bright White Screen


I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS ACTUALLY WORKED!!! At first, when I tapped the Sony Logo, the camera shut off. But then, suddenly the screen turned on and I realized that it was stuck in the time section of the menu. That's why I couldn't take pictures!

WOW!! Thank you for the incredible cost-saving solution! I was about to plunk down $120 for a repair!
