SOURCE: reformatting an SD memory cardf
You can format the card in your camera while not connected to your computer. In fact it's recommended to do so. Read your instruction book to find out how. It should be a selection available from your "menu" button when in image review mode. Select "low-level" or "full" format, not "quick" format (quick format is only good for erasing pictures).

If you've first tried the DISP button, AND also verified that your downloaded pictures are not also black like the screen, then it's probably just a loose flex cable connection. Please see this other post for info on how to correct the problem.

The LCD Panel has a connector which may have gone loose.
It will have to be soldered at a repair shop.
Post again if this does not solve the problem

SOURCE: I have a scratch on
Does the scratch actually show on the images you take? If not, then ignore it or use a little post-processing of images to remedy it if not serious.
The lens you have is the kit version supplied to get you going. As such, spares support is less comprehensive than for the lenses Sony hope you'll upgrade to.
In this instance though, the front lens is available as a spare part but is not cheap, you could buy a complete used replacement lens for less money or an ex-display model with a full warranty for about the same total cost. If you were able to remove and refit the scratched front element without seriously damaging the rest of the lens and without introducing lots of dust, you'd need to pay to have it optically collimated afterwards. Now that there are far fewer lens/camera repair shops worldwide it's not as easy to find trustworthy places able to do it, and many would refuse to guarantee the outcome on a DIY repaired lens. If the lens is not collimated the images will be worse than using the scratched lens.
You therefore have three realistic options;-
1. Ignore the damage as unless it's really serious, it's unlikely to show in almost all images. Fit a protective Skylight Filter to prevent further damage.
2. Replace the lens with a used or ex-demo unit, or treat the damage as an excuse to upgrade to a better quality model. Your damaged lens will still have a resale value to partially offset your costs.
3. Send the lens to the official Sony repair centre in your country. If you look at their website for your country you'll see that they offer fixed cost repairs which you can then compare to your first two options.
