No you don't do it yourself. working on electronics has different skills and expertise, as I have said it was not advisable for you to open the unit cause camera technician has an special tools servicing the unit. it can only result a damaged on the camera if your try to fix it.

Camera turns on ...but no view as if there no lens


A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image).

If seen on both your pc monitor as well as the camera's LCD then it's likely a CCD issue and it's no wonder that it will be more expensive than buying a new digicam. This is why you need to be exceptionally careful when taking care of your camera since most are uber sensitive to being damaged by the slightest miss-handling.

CCD image sensor problem occurs in this and other brands; in the next link, for example, check a recall on the Sony T1 and other cameras built around 2002-2004 with a CCD chip problem. The recall is good til 3/31/2009. Only $15 shipping charge ( I dont know if they keep this price ). Here is the link: Sony-Asia/Support/Announcement

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own;
Check this links that could give you additiona details:

Hope this helps.

Everything is working properly but cannot see anything from lcd or view finder


Hello. First thing...is there *any* display at all such as a number code in the upper right hand corner of the lcd? It will appear as "C:00:00" or "E:00:00", minus the quotation marks. If there is a "C" in front of the numbers, the problem is fixable by you--an "E" means that the problem has to be addressed by a tech. Next, to reset ALL functions back to factory defaults, open the LCD display on the side and locate the small reset button just to the left of the MENU button. Use a pen or pencil (the end of a paper clip works beautifully) and press the button momentarily. Don't use a lot of force to do it--not needed. If this doesn't bring up any display, then there is an internal circuit problem.
Can you see an image if you play back a tape? If so, then the problem concerns the CCD chip or associated circuitry. The ccd chip provides all the video information to the eyepiece and lcd screen in *record* mode. In *playback* mode, the camera acts just like a small VCR. Any video is being pulled from magnetic tape.
Is the camera still under any type of warranty? A CCD chip problem is a major repair and will be relatively costly. Do not repair the camera through a store! Find a reputable repair facility and ship it directly--the cost will be FAR less.(Retail stores take the actual repair quote, half it, and add the half to the quote *you* see.)---Hope I helped you!---Rick

Turn on camera and can't see anything but the display


If the display is blank or black without image in camera mode but the playback of previous picutures are displaying, you have a case of faulty CCD chip. If the previous images does not display also then some type of display circuit problem.
