    I have talked to Sony and I will be shipping the camera Monday, I have reservations because the problem seems to be intermittent, I hope the problem shows up when they have it, also deprnding on how long it takes to get it back, my daughters softball season might be over. Don't really want to spend allot of money for another camera.

    Thanks for the help.

Are you saying the lcd screen works but the pictures are just distorted or the screen doesn't work at all, even when you try to go into the menu. I think your "friend" is to blame here...your problems have nothing to do with changed settings.

Distorted/damaged pictures


Please check the image size (pixels x pixels) setting or the resolution (MP). Seems like the camera is shooting in low resolution. Have you used this memory card on a mobile phone or another camera? Format the memory card and try again.
