If your screen works on playback etc.... and no signs of damage to the screen.... then there are several possibilities I can think of!

This is going to sound stupid/insulting (but has happened before!!!!!)..... Make sure you have the Lens cap taken off if your camera has one!!!

OK!, Didn't think that was the problem, but had to ask!!!

Try taking a pic of a Bright light.... Do you get anything on the screen at all?..... try moving the camera about a bit!..... Still nothing?

Does your Camera still take Video if you have a video mode?.... Camera uses data differently for video (due to frame rates etc) and might suggest a card fault if this is the case!..... Have you tried a compatible card from a friend or a spare if you have one?

The last suggestion to make at this stage, is that the CCD chip in the camera may have failed!.... Unlikely, but possible!.... Has the camera been exposed to extreme temperatures, or maybe someone has been pointing it at the Sun for extensive periods?

One last thing to try..... If you can find a 'Reset' or 'Return to Defaults' type option in the Menu system... TRY IT!.... Nothing to Loose!

Repair would most likely be quite expensive unless still under Warranty ..... Consider replacing... but check with a few different repair stores first... you may be lucky and get a quick fix for a few Quid!

Hope this Helps!.... Good Luck!!

Hi, when my camera switches on the lights flashes a few times quickly. The intro screen comes on then the screen goes black. It totally freezes and the only way i can put it off is by removing the battery!...


Hi, I solved the problem, it appears the memory card was corrupt. When I removed it and switched on the camera it worked perfectly. Not sure why this happened!! I'm just glad my camera is working again!!

Thanks.

hi try to reset ur camera...To do such reset, turn on the camera and hold the menu button down for longer than 5 seconds. A message should hopefully come up on your LCD asking if you want to reset the camera. Select Yes...

Sony cybershot 4.1 DSC-P43


Hi
I bought a new 1MB memory card for this camera and was dismayed to find that the screen went completely blank - I couldn't do anything!!!! It was my sons graduation so had to buy another camera!
But, have just resolved this issue by pressing the bottom right-hand side of the screen with a rubber topped pencil - it works!!!!
This camera may be old and chunky but it still takes amazing pictures.
Hope it works for you too.

Scratch on camera's LDC screen


Hi,
do you mean the plastic cover has become scratched or the screen itself is malfunctioning?

If the screen is malfunctioning return it.

If you have scratched the screens protective cover there is a great product called "displex" (i buy it off ebay) buy it with the special cloth, Its a very fine abrasive that will polish out scratches and blemishes.
It takes some time rubbing the screen to work but it usually comes up a treat (dont press too hard) Iv recovered some absolutly trashed screen covers with it. Once its sorted use a screen protector to keep it good

Best of luck

White Screen Problem


Hi,
I saw your problem and thought I'd share a solution that I thought was silly but my camera was fixed in less than a minute!! hold the camera in your left hand and turn it on. With your right hand, tap the SONY LOGO below the screen a few times. At first the camera might shut off. Simply turn it back on and try again. A few firm taps with your fingers and the screen will turn back on!! I found this solution online and many people had the same wonderful results! Good luck! Frank
