SOURCE: Sony DSC-S40 White LCD Screen - Permanent Fix

Needs a little brute force. Release all screws you can find. At the bottom above the o of the word Sony is a plastic lip (or clip) which you cannot see, but holds the camera together.
Do be affraid to pull a bit and it will come off.

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

Sony DSC S40 screen turnes WHITE in few seconds.


Try pressing hard just under the bottom right hand corner of the screen with your thumb (and second or third finger on the top). Squeeze hard! it works every time for my camera. Good luck.

My sony dsc-s40 has only a blank white screen does not work properly


Happy New Year!
My Mom had this same camera and had -what sounds like- the same problem. I found that the connection to the screen was loose. Take apart the camera- you need a tiny philips. If I remember there are only three screws you need to get to. One near the battery compartment. one near the tripod mount (bottom) and one just inside the memory stick slot.

Blank Screen


I have been facing the same problem with same model and this is permanent problem it seems with this model (Sony Cybershot DSC S40). It causes because of the following:

SYMPTOMS
LCD display is either blank or WHITE. When the cabinet is opened or LCD flexible cable is
touched, the symptom disappears. This is caused by connection defect or poor contact between connector and LCD flex cable due to the pressure or stress created by the rib in the front cabinet
to the connector.


Send me a email and I shall send you the solution (two files) received from Sony authorized person. You have to open the camera to solve this. Do not open the camera . Just get the idea about where the problem is. I never opened the camera even after seeing this solution 2 yrs back. However, I have a plan for going to service centre with this solution. I hope they can open the camera and solve this. But not getting time to go there in service centre.

I used the following temporary solution and it works to get LCD in its normal condition:

LCD looks like a rectangle is not it? Hold the camera in its normal position as you are going to take a picture (camera is switched on and you are not seeing anything in the LCD, which looks white or dull). Now GENTLY PRESS by the thumb of your right hand at a place near to LCD at the BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER of the rectangle (remember not on the LCD (rectangle) but just outside of it) until you see the normal colour of your LCD. Do few times starting with less pressure and then slightly increase it untill you see a normal LCD. I have been following this procedure for the last 2 yrs and not feeling to go for serving. (This solution I found in a forum only).

Good luck!

Screen is white and doesn't display area being photographed. Can take pictures.


From camerahacker.com:
1. Hold camera firmly in left hand.
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.
Worked for me :)
