Hello !
I do have the same problem on my W55 purchased in Jan 08 and may I add that I,m extremly careful (grown up with the old and expensive "analog" stuff). So dont put the blaim on you.

The warranty is still on so I will let you know what the repairman tells me in hopefully a short while.

The commonly advocated sollution on the net is to give the camera a god knock just where the "Cybershot" logo is. But in my opinion, knocking the camera about can,t be the right thing.

All this indicates to me that the problem should be a loose contact just where the flat connector from the LCD enters the rest of the electronics, in which case the repair would be very simple once you opened the housing...but we,ll see.

I also would like to mention that my wife has the old preseries type W45 (replaced in 07 by the W50 series) and unlike me she is NOT careful (rolling in the sand, droping it on rocks forgetting it in the rain and so forth) and it still works perfectly. This made me curious. Examining and comparing made it obvious that something dramatic must have happened in the SONY Quality-thinking.
Personally I WILL RESTRAIN FROM BUING SONY IN THE FUTURE.Especial as it seems that once you bought their **** they lose all intrest in you...aftersales service is not in their dictionary.

Regards WDB

MY SONY CAMERA GOT WET ITS NOT CAPTURING PICTURES OR NOT RECORDING VIDEOS. EVERY THING IS WORKING BUT THE SCREEN IS NOT DISPLAYING WHAT DO I DO??????


sir,
if your camera or any electronics appliances happened to enter water or moisture, you must remove the power source(battery)at the immediate, hence the water is a conductor of electric power it will spoil the entire circuits of it. in this case there is very rare possibility to cure. any how please open your camera and take out the LCD display, there may be corrosion on the clipping connectors, try to clean all the connectors, wash the total circuit board with cleaning liquid, re connect all then power on.

I have a Sony DSC-W50 Cybershot camera that won't take pictures or videos anymore. It powers up fine and the screen works, but when I hold down the shutter button all the way, it focuses and nothing more.

You can not feed or save direct video out put of TV in to camera to put it on youtube.com
You need to mount camera on tripod focusing TV screen and start recording to make movie clip to upload it to youtube.

White Display on Screen


I fixed the camera myself as follows:

1. Hold camera firmly in left hand
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.

It worked, now the LCD is working again for free.

Guess I don't need to pay Sony $111.00 for repair service.

Best Regards .
