I am not sure about the specific brand. Open the case by removing screws (usually 5-6). The LCD screen is immediately accessible. Lift it carefully and trace the ribbon connector. Lift the small flap in the connector carefully and pull out the ribbon cable. Replace it in the reverse order.
I read that you hold in the three outer buttons on the screen side of the camera, which would be the MENU, LCD power, and Delete buttons, while turning the camera on. The LCD and Delete buttons are identified by symbols, not hard to recognize.
I have been facing the same problem with same model and this is permanent problem it seems with this model (Sony Cybershot DSC S40). It causes because of the following:
SYMPTOMS LCD display is either blank or WHITE. When the cabinet is opened or LCD flexible cable is touched, the symptom disappears. This is caused by connection defect or poor contact between connector and LCD flex cable due to the pressure or stress created by the rib in the front cabinet to the connector.
Send me a email and I shall send you the solution (two files) received from Sony authorized person. You have to open the camera to solve this. Do not open the camera . Just get the idea about where the problem is. I never opened the camera even after seeing this solution 2 yrs back. However, I have a plan for going to service centre with this solution. I hope they can open the camera and solve this. But not getting time to go there in service centre.
I used the following temporary solution and it works to get LCD in its normal condition:
LCD looks like a rectangle is not it? Hold the camera in its normal position as you are going to take a picture (camera is switched on and you are not seeing anything in the LCD, which looks white or dull). Now GENTLY PRESS by the thumb of your right hand at a place near to LCD at the BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER of the rectangle (remember not on the LCD (rectangle) but just outside of it) until you see the normal colour of your LCD. Do few times starting with less pressure and then slightly increase it untill you see a normal LCD. I have been following this procedure for the last 2 yrs and not feeling to go for serving. (This solution I found in a forum only).
Try and clean the LCD connector _flexible connectors.
If you are able to see the dark picture- The back light panel is defective or improper contact.
If the picture is perfect in the PC when you download,,then the LCD may be defective
For LCD pl.e mail me...may be we can give a new one.
