    I have this same problem. The troubleshooting area of the manual says to "calibrate" the LCD screen, using certain specific instructions...but I tried following the instructions, and I am not getting the proper information showing up (ie. "Hold displ/batt info for 5 seconds until "X" appears on screen"....But there is no "X" that appears.

The switch is broken, when you open the flap for the lcd, there is a switch its broken/defective. Look for a replacement.

I believe this is a main board problem. IF you still have a warranty you should send the camera back to sony. You dont believe you can turn the lcd buttons off. You can turn off the button clicks so it doesnt make any noise but you cannot turn off the buttons on the lcd.

My samsung 32'' lcd tv

poke it open, you'll find bloated capacitors at power supply board. biggest one, with power cord pluged into. replace with thesame value(s).
you good to go!
don't lie, next time! your set has been acting up fpr a while, before it quit. Remembering: few attempts to turn it on, then it works!
good luck.

That's an odd way to fix a Wireless WIFI board problem. That's what happens when the green light comes on, but you have no video.
