My sony dscw 100 suddenly stopped displaying the picture as seen from the lens (just remains blank and shows all the other details like the histogram, flash status etc. but no picture). I can view pictures already taken that are resident on the memory stick. so it looks like a ccd (or similar) issue...any ideas would be helpful

When shooting into the sun your subject tend to ubder exposed. Shade the lens so that the sun does not fall on the lens (get someone to shade the camera with a hat), turn on the flash gun use it as a fill in flash.
Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!
Your camera has problem in Lens mechanism. If Lens doesn't open properly, camera will not show picture at all. There would be Loading Motor section demaged in Lens mechanism and it needs to be replaced to work camera OK.
Now come to blue screen in playback mode, This model doesn't have internal memory, so you need memory stick/ card to see previously taken pictures.
Your CCD imager is broken, cameras made from 2002 up to 2005 has a weak ccd imager. Company who uses this defective ccd imager recalled all unit and replaced it with a stronger design free of charge. check first their website, find their customer support bulletin, make a copy and show it to their service center.
