Re: message on LCD screen
'No Picture' usually means just that.
There are no images in the memory.
So go take some pictures.
Check you have the control to the picture taking mode and not the Viewing mode
Give the manual a good read.

You're right in saying that if you get ANY onscreen message with the computer connected, the LCD and its driver circuits are likely OK. I don't have that exact cybershot, but I have had a few, and most have a menu item to turn off various screen content, including the entire display. Its likely a battery saving feature, but if you turn it on and hit the MENU button and still see nothing, there must be some actual defect. If all else fails, before contacting SONY, take the battery out and wait at least 5 minutes and then replace.
Have you tried taking pictures with it? Do the pictures show up when taken? If so, then it's likely that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.
Try removing batteries and card and leaving them out for a while to allow camera settings to default.
Replace batteries only and see if you get "Card Error" message.
If you get this, then try again with card fitted
Check firmware version
Possibly card storage too big. Upgrade firmware to version 1.77

Have you tried the 'Menu' button? If you've turned off the 'Review' feature in the settings menu, your LCD screen won't show anything unless the 'Menu' button is pressed. If it doesn't come on when you push 'Menu' with a charged battery installed, your camera will need to be serviced.
