SOURCE: Hi I have a Sony

The way camcorders and cameras focus is by using tiny electromagnets attached to the focusing ring, and signals from the infrared sensor focus the pic or vid. When dirt, dust, sand, or lint works it's way into the lens assembly, the focusing ring can get slightly jammed. You can try to spray some compressed air into the lens area, in the hope of freeing it up.
Aside from that, there could be an intermittent ribbon connector (slightly loose), or any other number of crazy things that can happen with solder joints and wires, or components.
If the compressed air doesn't fix it, the unit will have to be troubleshot and serviced. Get an estimate first, since it can be costly.
Oh, one other thing. Make sure you have clean battery contacts, both on the unit, and battery. Clean them with a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol, or a pencil eraser. Slightly oxidized contacts can cause intermittent problems.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
