Hello,

I recently bought a Sony Cybershot DSC-U50 and the screen works when in the menu option but if I try to put it into photo, storage or video mode(s) the screen just turns black. I can take a photo since the shutter works and the flash does too but I can’t see what I’m taking or the photo after. I’ll try connecting it to my computer later to see if it’s the len itself or the LCD screen but any repair shop recommendations? Or does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thank you

I'd try a reset in the menu. With some models, you can turn the display off, so you only use the viewfinder for photos. I had a couple old P&S that were like that.
