If the live view is black, and the picture it takes is black, but the menus are still readable, its the CCD. Try to see if it qualifys for a free recall from Sony.

Can you see Shadow images[ indicating back light failure]
or Nothing at all[ Indication main circuit board or connector problem

If you are still in warranty then send it back to seller.

You could try gently squeezing the case below the screen to see if there is a chance of a re connection.
Also check out Sony support in case there is an issue with that model
Failing that it is a repair job
Prbably nearly as expensive as simply junking it and start over

Can Sony DSC N2 digital camera be used as web camera


1. Sony digital still cameras are not supported for use as a Webcam. To video conference, use a dedicated Webcam or video camera that supports this function.
The MHS-PM1 and MHS-CM1 Webbie HD™ MP4 cameras support video conferencing.
Refer the link:
http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=C115707&sliceId=1&docTypeID=DT_KNOWLEDGEARTICLES_1_1&dialogID=76686495&stateId=0%200%20180270382


2. The camera is not supported for use as a webcam.
Refer:
http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=C354060&sliceId=1&docTypeID=DT_KNOWLEDGEARTICLES_1_1&dialogID=76686495&stateId=0%200%20180270382

Work Around:

The only way that it may work is if you were to connect the camera to the computer via an analog video cable (yellow RCA cable) and/or audio (red and white RCA cables) for those models where audio signal transfer is also available. computer must have the ability of accepting input from these analog RCA plug(s).


To connect a digital camera for video conferencing follow this procedure:

1. Plug in the AC Adapter and set the Power/Function dial to Camera.

2. Connect an A/V cable from the Video OUT on the camera to the Video IN on the computer.

3. Within the third party software, select Composite as the input source.

You may also use Net Meeting Software that is preinstalled in the Windows Operating System.

There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard foe a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inpect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

All pictures taken are just Blackness


is there a view finder on this camera? often when there is a screen and a viewfinder there is a button to toggle between them, my sony camera has such a button although it is not a cybershot. i imagine the button says "dis" or "LCD" and just needs to be toggled. if the display were bad you would not be able to view pictures on it. display works must be configuration issue.

Sony CyberShot DSC-N2 - Unable to read memory card


Before anything else.... you must examine first if your card is not damage, How? Try to test it in the memory card readers or other camera that fit the same memory cards. 
Some other cards do have lock option in the jacket of the card. Try to unlock it. After doing so reformat the memory card in to your cam.

Other option...... Some other cam do have internal memory, if you have the same, configured it out.
