    Sorry it's not the LCD just the viewfinder, "eyepiece" that no longer works. The LCD is what still works.

    Thanks

    The viewfinder doesn't work even when the LCD is closed so that is not the problem.

    Thanks though.

Is the viewfinder set to auto?

Auto turns it on or off when the LCD is flipped out to save energy. Look through your menus for this setting. If there's some problem the camera is having recognizing when the LCD is flipped out or not, this would solve not being able to use the eyepiece.

When I turn on my camera the LCD screen is balck and I cant see anything thruough the lens. It does take pics because when I upload the disck Ic an see the new pics


Double check if the viewfinder is operable (not the LDC but the little thing you look through with one eye above it). Try pressing the display button to flip through the different modes as you're looking through the viewfinder. If the viewfinder does work (and the LCD screen doesn't come on as you're scrolling through the modes) then it is most likely dead (broken). If the viewfinder works, you're can still use the camera otherwise it's probably time to get a new one.

You should go into the menu, camera settings and set the evf to on. EVF stands for electronic view finder. This can be set to be on when the lcd is open or closed. CAreful, if the evf is set to on and you point the viewfinder towards the sun, it will burn white marks into the viewfinder and ruin it.

I followed the directions that were posted on the free suggestions on your site:
Turn the camera on in viewfinder mode. Turn it off and turn it upside down in your hand.
Smack the bottom of the camera several times with your other hand.
Turn it back over and turn it back on. It took me three tries, but voila, on the third try, it worked!
I could see through the viewfinder again.

No image on viewfinder


There is a short in the wiring were the hinge is at. You can take into a camera store or Best Buy and see what it would cost to replace the wiring in there.

LCD screen stopped working


sounds like the LCD screen viewfinder may have been twisted or accidentally catched or got hooked or snagged on on something at one stage and pulled something, if the screen went yellow it means the three wires going to it are possibly broken or the small white clip was slowly coming undone inside the Viewfinder for the red and green to no longer work to complete the image also indicates why the buttons on the viewfinder are not responding, try twisting the viewfinder very lightly whilst on, but most likely the small white clip holding the wires has come off at the elbow inside the camera

My sony digital camera was stepped on and the viewfinder is broken


I have a DSC-P93 (same camera with 5mp) I had crack the LCD carrying the camera in my front hip pocket. I searched for a replacement LCD and I had no luck. I ended up Buying a “parts” camera from ebay for $9.90 + 4.00 for shipping. You could get either DSC-P73 or DSC-P93 (the LCD is the same) just be sure they say that the screen shows something. Menus is fine errors are no problem as long as it’s not black.

LCD Monitor on ,and the Electronic Viewfinder turned off


If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
