Subject: RE: Tech: Camera LCD Gone Bad--What to do?
I don't know a huge amount about colour LCDs but it sounds like the display may have suffered some sort of mechanical shock (bang). It may be worth looking around Ebay to see if it's possible to buy a new display. The problem you may have then is that the display, along with the rest of the electronics will be Surface Mount - these are probably impossible to repair without the correct equipment.

Alternatively a google may find a third-party repair outfit who can do the job cheaper than Sony.

With regard to the warranty, I think it's a little mean of them - the display is probably one of the more expensive components to replace.

Good luck - and perhaps think twice about buying Sony next time. Your experience has certainly put me off their otherwise excellent kit.
