    when i press the "shoot" button, the image that comes up on the screen is a blur of stripes. every once in a while i can fix it by adjusting the settings, but i have no idea exactly which settings provide the fix.

Had the same issue with my wifes camera. Stripes going accross the screen. I figured that there might be a loose connection. I removed the batterys and three small screws (one is under the memory stick). Then I GENTLY removed the back, starting above the battery compartment. With the back exposed, I put the batterys back in and gently started playing with the screen connections. I got the screen working after playing with the lower, larger conection, on the bottom. Figured I had nothing to lose. Hope this helps you out.

Sony camera dsc-t90 when we switch on the camera the screen become blarred nothing is visible screen is full white with some line


OK, this can either be that your LCD has an internal crack. You can actually test it by doing the following. If you power on the unit and you can still take a photo, which comes out normal, it is a bad LCD.

You can get the LCD of your camera repaired at your nearest camera repair store for under $30.

If the camera does not take a photo when you snap something, it can also be a lens error.

For now, test the above solution. Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Kind regards

How to reset sony dsc-s40 camers

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.
