Question about Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 Digital Camera
Your camera is working exactly as SLRs have worked for the first half-century since their invention. You frame the picture through the viewfinder then take the shot. The display is for menu settings and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Newer DSLRs will let you use the display for picture-taking (and take videos) but the A200 belongs to the previous generation.

SOURCE: LCD - Focus
DSLR camera was not made to be used as a point and shoot camera and you cant preview the shot before taking a picture. You are to use the eye piece to focus right. Also before taking a picture, push the exposure button just a little to let the camera focus right.

Since you've already swapped the screen, it looks like there is an issue with your logic board. However many times ebay vendors send you a screen that will fit but is incompatible, so I wouldn't exclude that possibility. I work for Sony Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

It is for sure that the LCD display is not working. Hence you need to probe into the camera to confirm but attempt only if equipped with the right tools and some experience , becasue as of now your camera can shoot good pictures and you must not end up tampering to damage the camera.
If not get help from a friend or the nearest sony service centre, get estimate and replace accordinly. You will be lucky if the fault is a power link failure, if the display needs replacement then the cost is the issue, try if you can get a salvaged display unit.
hope this helps. Good day

Testimonial: "i'm going to try to replace the LCD screen, thanks for the assistance "
The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.
