Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F707 Digital Camera
I read several posts in 2002 from F707 users whose viewfinder screens had gone blank. The symptoms appear similar to what I am now experiencing, but I could not discover whether anyone had managed to find a satisfactory solution. After 3 years' use (unsurprisingly just two months after my extended 3-year warranty ran out) and without my being aware of having treated the camera in any way badly, the viewfinder and, if switched on, the lcd screen, remain black, as if the lenscap were still on. All other functions of the camera work, including taking a (now black) image, normal play-back of the new (black) image or of previous good images. Resetting the camera has not helped. All the little icons and texts in the viewfinder are there as usual, and all switches, buttons etc work correctly. Can anyone offer any suggestions or alternatives to sending it in to Sony? I am debating whether this is economically viable, especially as I have a newer DSLR, but am reluctant to ditch the F707 which has taken so many beautiful pictures. Thank you.

This same thing happend to me awhile back. Camera seem to be dead for several weeks until one day I tried turning on and then off the night vision. The was the usual click inside the camera and all was well after that. I still use the camera.
