Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
My screen is black when I take photos/videos but it works when reviewing the photos/videos. I hate not being able to see if it's in focus or not when I take a photo.
Also the lights next to the viewfinder switched when the problem started. I was taking a video when it happened and I might have accidentally pressed a button but I have no idea how it happened.
I appreciate any help you can give!!

This suggests the mirror is stuck up in the take position. Remove the Lens and look at what is behind it In the rest mode you should see a mirror. If it is stuck up you would see the sensor window Which do you see. with the lens off - can the camera be switched on? This might just drop the mirror The mirror is surface silvered - do not touch it. If it still up then it is a repair shop/warranty replacement job.

SOURCE: photos are not sharp
I would look beyond the camara and suspect that the computer is tired or overloaded. This would be a more logical point of defining the trouble and cheaper than suspecting your fine camara and expertise. If you still think it is the camara take it off the auto focus for a few weeks and see if you still get problem shots. If So take the puppy in for an overhaul of the timing shutter mechanism. It may just have a fuzz ball or rather hairball problem that only momentarilly and intermitintly snags. If it is not the auto focus then how about a different computer program choice?? Photo files eat up a lot of space and unless you have one computer that is totally dedicated to just the storage fixing and printing of the pictures you may simply have a RAM vs PIXEL problem. Try off loading some onto disc for storage instead of keeping them all on the machine. If they print out better in quality than you see on your screen then it may be your monitor that needs to be reset to handle fine detail in the contrast settings. You may have to upgrade this equipment, which I would for the TAX BREAK.

Seems like your camera is choosing the focus point, not you. Be sure that when focusing on your subject, the little square in the viewfinder id dead-on that focus point. Otherwise, the camera will focus on wherever that square is.
