Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blank LCD Hi! I have a Sony Cyber-shot digital camera, DSC-S40 model. I've been using it for two years now. Some months ago I couldn't get a picture from the LCD. It just went white. I can't see a thing. When I shoot the flash goes on and I can also hear the sound that it's capturing some image, but the LCD is still white. It can easily switch ON and OFF. I've even recharged and changed the batteries. It's festive season and I need to capture some memories with my Sony camera. I have misplaced my manual, so I can't troubleshoot. May you please help.

My sony camera has a white screen when i turn it on can't see anything camera less than a year old

Hi your camera has LCD defective. it just need change. you can get the part at Installing matter, you can bring to your local repair shop or just bring your camera itself. If the repair shop is decent then, they would charge $10 or 15 for labor. But it is your unlucky, then they would try to charge whatever they want. Thanks and kindly regard!

We had similiar problems with ours until we started making sure the camera was kept warm when it was shut off. For some reason, it and the batteries don't like the cold...we were able to extend the battery life if we kept it covered when we weren't using it.
