LCD Side Screen Display Not Displaying

All functions are working 100% except the LCD Display lights up White and not blue. The LCD does not display anything. However the touch screen keys function perfectly but the play, stop ,rewind, etc., buttons on the display also does not show up but I can work the unit by feel and watch the viewfinder or external tv monitor.
All other functions are 100% OK.
I will appreciate some help.
Thanks

    The main feed flat-tape cable is fractured/damaged due to normal opening and closing of LCD Sidescreen especially by turning the screen 180* degrees. PROBLEM SOLVED by fitting new feed cable.

The problem is a bad CCD inside the camera. I Sony was providing free service for some of their other models but failed to provide service (recall) on these models. contact Sony at 1-866-703-7669

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.


I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.
