Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
Hi. Hope anyone out there can help. My Cyber-shot DSC-W50 has a blank black screen. The lens extends when switched on, but no image can be seen. I am able to see the info on screen, like battery charge and different settings etc. But no image. I removed the memory card and replaced it but still no go. Any suggestions or solutions will be appreciated.
The camera lens itself is either broken or the connected is severed. You can check this by opening the camera which might provide difficult for most people but is the only option to really see the exact problem unless you see the lens damaged.
Please let me know what you find, good luck
also, if you need any other help with this camera, please let me know, I would be glad to help

Tap side of camera with base of hand with 2 or 3 sharp taps. Then turn camera on. Problem should be solved. If not, then try the same with the camera ON.
You can even try a hard reset: Remove the batteries (and SD Card, if you wish), wait for a couple of minutes. Hold the power button down and reinsert batteries. Turn the device on.
If that still does not work, it could indicate a problem with the LCD mechanism of the viewscreen or the ribbon connector. In this case, you will probably need to get it serviced.
