Seems to me, the screen has shorted out. To fix this, the camera will have to be disassembled enough to get to the screen and clean the contacts which are many and along two adjacent sides. You can do it on your own if you want to take the risk (and learn about camera electronics). The other two options are to have a technician do it or replace the camera. Replacement may be cheaper than a technician. Do some research before you decide.

Sony dsc p51 cyber-shot. screen does not come on for pics. or video


Hi there,

I had the same problem with a P51 camera I bought from ebay. After searching on the internet for possible solutions. I found that this particular model had a problem with a sensor. Some guys recommended to hit the down corner (where the len is located) in your palm. I did it, and amazedly it worked, however, I need to do the same thing every-time the black screen appears. This is a Sony defect, the should replace the sensor. I have heard this solution does not work for everybody. Good luck!

Screen is white and doesn't display area being photographed. Can take pictures.


From camerahacker.com:
1. Hold camera firmly in left hand.
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.
Worked for me :)
