  1. Ensure the camera is turned on. \015\012
  2. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures. \015\012
  3. Ensure the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. \015\012NOTE: Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon [FIG. 1]. This button could be a standalone button or incorporated as one of the control arrow buttons depending on the model of camera.
    \015\012
  4. If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged. \015\012
  5. Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera. \015\012
  6. If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet. \015\012
  7. Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected. \015\012
  8. Perform a reset procedure on the camera.
\015\012The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required.

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings. \015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Solution
sp.gif\015\012sp.gif\015\012\015\012\015\012Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
\015\012Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
\015\012IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
\015\012Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
\015\012Using an Initialize option in the menu
\015\012Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
\015\012Using a RESET button
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera. \015\012
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds. \015\012
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
\015\012Performing a manual power reset
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Turn off the camera. \015\012
  2. Remove the battery pack. \015\012
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery. \015\012
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds. \015\012
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery. \015\012
  6. Reinsert the battery pack. \015\012
  7. Turn on the camera.
