There is a problem inside the camera with the wire harness/cable connection to the screen. They are know to come loose over time. If you tap rather briskly on the front of the camera right on the word Cybershot it should reconnect it. Worked on mine but you may need to do it now & again. The altenative is to have the camera dismantled and the connector pushed back onto the screen.

Now a couple months later I have a different problem, it says to turn the power on and off again when I turn it on to take pictures.

Sony cybershot dsc-s40 lcd screen is all white

okay the lcd being white means its replacment of lcd time and not the camersa itself. But to rule that out try taking a pic if you cannot you might got a shutter issue as well.

Thanks hope the information helped

White Display on Screen

I fixed the camera myself as follows:

1. Hold camera firmly in left hand
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.

It worked, now the LCD is working again for free.

Guess I don't need to pay Sony $111.00 for repair service.

Best Regards .

Just take the back cover off, unplug the cable that runs to the switches from the main board and plug it back in. I had the same problem and it now works great!

It sounds like the lcd is broken or loose. The backlight is still working properly, which is why you only see white. You could try to open the camera and push in the ribbon for the lcd, or bring it to someone who knows what they are doing. HOWEVER: if it is still under warranty, do nothing and send it to sony.
