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

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.

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!
