    It happens either with battery and power adaptor.

    I just see a lot of lines on the screen.

    I repeated power on and off many times, but very rarely I can see normal screen.

    I have the same issue - distorted view on LCD screen and we can't see what's being recorded. Same issue on playback on the LCD.

    Picture quality is great when you watch it on a TV.

    The problem is not consistent - changing the
    orientation of the screen sometimes helps, sometimes not. My guess is
    that there is a short along the joint where the screen moves next to
    the body that only affects the LCD touch screen.

    I have the same screen problem. Only started recently, but after the warranty expires. Seems to me to be a common problem with this model. I noticed on another site (can't find it now) that previous sony models had similiar problems, has anyone contacted sony about this specific problem to see if they are planning to recall the camera?

    How is the picture quality.

    Does it happen when you plug it into an electrical outlet?

It is the ribbon cable by the hinge. I replaced my from my brothers cracked camera it lasted 8 months and that too went bad. It is very tedious and risky job to replace the ribbon. I am sure Sony is aware of it and keep quite.

I have the same problem, I just discovered tonight that it was because the LCD screen is too cold, just heat it up by blowing hot air on the LCD screen (e.g. with your mouth), it should be ok after about 2 minutes. However, you will need to do this again after you turn it off and let the LCD cooled down.

First of all, don;t smack it anymore... You should try hooking it up to the computer and see if you can go in through the USB connection and get it to turn may be a problem with the screen settings.. if not contact apple tech support..
