Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My LCD screen shows a colorful vertical line & then the screen goes white

I have a DSC S40 that is about 2 years old. I have never had a problem, but last week it began to act funny. I've changed the batteries made sure the memory stick is ok as well. I am able to take pictures, it is just that the LCD screen looks funny, so I am unable to tell if the picture is ok or not. Also, when I call up the menu in the view mode, the screen goes completely white and I cannot view anything. Is it time to buy another camera? Thanks,

Hello, The problem is in bad contacts on flat cable from the LCD. Cleaning the cable and the connector can solve the problem. If you need more info please advice. ps: this should be the long term solution.

I have Sony Cybershot DSC T200 camera. It can take perfect pictures, but I can't see anything in LCD screen as it has colored vertical lines all over the screen. What can be the issue ?

If your pictures taken with the camera are seen when downloaded to the PC, the it is sure that the LCD is faulty or damaged.
The presence of vertical lines show that the processor driver to the LCD has failed. You have confirm cost of the new LCD before it can be decided.

Vertical color lines on display screen

Hi!
If the lines appear while looking at the menu, then it's a broken LCD. If the lines appear only while taking pictures - faulty CCD. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at [email protected] and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

Vertical white line near the left end of the screen.

Usually when there are colored lines on the LCD its because the screen is going bad. Quick way to verify this, try a different monitor on your computer and if the line goes away then you know for sure the monitor is bad.

If you try a different monitor and the line remains then you know that the video card is bad.

LCD Screen has vertical lines and now it is almost white

you will need to send it the sony directly for repairs rather then Precisions Camera in CT since they are only a authorized repair center rather then a direct manc. place.

Please call 1 800 282-2848. Best if you have a proof of purchase to go with it.
