Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera ?

I can't see anything..

\015 When i turn it on i can't see anything the screen is black but if i look really closely i do see something..i tired to find something on the menu but since i can't see anything i don't even know where to go. i took it to best buy and they told me i might have to buy a new LCD and replace it. i don't know where to get them and i was wondering if there's another possible reason why it happened.\015\012please help..\015

Answers :

There is another reason but its worse...
\015\012it might be some of the circuitry is screwed up!
\015\012its hard to find an LCD screen because:
\015\0121. all electronics generally have different LCD screens
\015\0122. suppliers tend not to sell individual screens
\015\012its probably easier to take it to a repair shop.
