Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lines across the LCD screen

When I turn my camera on I just get lines across the LCD screen. Even if I turn the LCD screen off it only takes a picture of lines. I can view old pictures but that is it. Any suggestions?

    The same thing is happening to my camera. Everything else works fine, except for the lines across the LCD screen.

Two things can cause lines across the LCD either horizontal or vertically. The first (and most likely) is a small crack in the display wafer. LCD stands for Liquid Cristal Display. They are very fragile and can be easily damaged if dropped. I broke one in my pants pocket.

The second would be if a pin on the ribbon cable (to the LDC wafer) was not making good contact. If you disassemble the camera it is possible to clean the contacts using contact cleaner (or alcohol). Only attempt this is you are willing to replace the camera if you don’t put it back together properly.

Lines on screen on my camera


If the pictures have lines, the fault is either with the processor board having a defect, or an open group of contacts, or the LCD imager itself. Lines are an indication of a loss of matrix addressing.
The service rep would replace the processor board or the imager. This will not be low cost to service. Check to see if the camera is under warranty.
I suggest if you buy a new camera, take an extended warranty.
