You should remove the lens and see if the mirror is stuck in the up position.

Camera's screen is black, but still takes pictures.


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, try pressing the DISP button once with the camera turned on.

LCD screen not on when camera on?


You hit the EVF/LCD button near the "eye hole". When this is pressed it will cycle viewing through either the optical viewfinder or the LCD screen. This display is controlled independantly on each of the modes: shooting, or viewing. This is so you can set the camera to view pics before taking them from the optical viewfinder and view pics once taken from the LCD or vice-versa.

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

Black screen


Assumed that LCD screen is black and what about Eye piece viewfinder? Does it show picture to you?
If LCD Screen is black, it means it has no back-light. check any button to turn back light on & off at LCD portion.
There can be an other reason of black LCD. a flexible cable which connects LCD and Camera circuits and it can be broken/ cracked/ out of order.
