The LCD screen will not power on
When the camera powers up the LCD screen just stays black.
This camera is one of Sony’s HX camera series. Repairing this device is similar to the other cameras of the HX series, and requires screwdrivers and prying tools.
While the camera is powered on and the lens cap is removed, if there is no obvious damage or obstruction that would prevent the LCD screen from functioning properly, try pressing the LCD/Finder button located near the ON/OFF button. If the screen is still failing to power on then the battery may need charging or the screen may need to be replaced.
