SOURCE: Cracked LCD screen for sony cybershot dsc-w80

Yes that's what you'll need, and not just the glass cover (if it has one. You will need the LCD screen in addition to other broken parts if any?). You can find parts and used/broken cameras to salvage parts from on online auction and classified sites (using your make and model number to search them). Otherwise you can try to go through Sony to replace the broken parts (probably the most expensive source if they will sell you the parts you need at all). IMHO
Good Luck

I had the same problem - not entirely sure about the causality but it seemed to work again after I took the memory card out and put it back in. Worth a try I guess.

Exact same problem: LCD obviously worked perfectly, could see overlay information during capture and could see previously recorded images, but the preview image was black and captured images were black (although high ISO images showed obvious amplifier grain). I opened the camera, took over the face plate, and turned the camera on. It immediately started working, I hadn't even attempted to perform any kind of fix yet. The face plate must have been exerting pressure somewhere. Another person suggested the lens is being pushed back and short-circuiting. Seems entirely possible to me. At any rate, put the face plate back on and the camera is working fine.

To remove the face plate you need a tiny philips screwdriver. There are six that must be removed: three on the bottom along the front edge (there are three others on the bottom along the rear edge that you can leave on) one inside the string-attachment well, and two on the other side of the camera next to the lens (one holds a plate on, which when removed, reveals one more screw under the side plate). With these screws removed you can use a flat head screwdriver or a knife to gently pry off the face plate. Go slow, don't use much pressure, there are some small clips along the op edge that must be worked free without snapping or breaking. Once removed, turn the camera on and see if it's fixed. If so, turn it off and put it back together. If not, you're in uncharted territory. Sorry.

Cheers!

Would you like to open your pictures from your Sony Cybershot to your computer? Your cybershot cam is usually plug and play so you dont need a software for that. All you do is to plug in your camera to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. When the computer detected the new usb device, open a Windows Explorer. Right click your windows Start button, and choose Explore. From the list of Drives from the left, you need to find the Drive letter associated with your camera. Just click on that and it will show you the files on the right. The pictures are located somewhere inside those folders. You just need to click and drag them to your computer's local drive.

Should you have any questions, please let me know. Good luck!

  1. Ensure the camera is turned on.
  2. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures.
  3. Ensure the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. NOTE: Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon [FIG. 1]. This button could be a standalone button or incorporated as one of the control arrow buttons depending on the model of camera.
  4. If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged.
  5. Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera.
  6. If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet.
  7. Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected.
  8. Perform a reset procedure on the camera.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required. The Sony Service Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

Try to reset the camera to original settings:
How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.

Hi,Try adjusting the LCD brightness. I guess you can do it by pressing the UP button (may be different in your camera).

Hope this works, :)

If u r unable to see live picture on LCD screen in camera mode, it means CCD Imager of camera isn't working. Contact nearest Sony service shop for proper solution because it requires CCD Imager replacement.

It sounds like a problem called Banding. In banding, charge is spilled from saturated CCD cell to teh neighbouring cells. There is nothing you can do about it except exchange the camera.

Try contacting Sony support.

I talked to sony assistance and they said nothing really helpful. They told me to try:

- Putting everything default again
- Taking out battery and holding down the power button for 30sec and putting back the battery,

None of these worked.
