Question

Sony Cybershot- Faulty screen?

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W180; the screen intermittently goes blank (white/grey) with a vertical line down the centre, particularly when I press any buttons. The image comes back if i apply pressure to the bottom right of the screen. Anyone know if this is a fixable issue?

Thanks!

I have to go with no.

While it sounds like a connector connection issue, since you didn't use this clue to do the work then it's back to the camera maker to tell you how much to fix it. I never write about DIY repairs since it's an area that you either do this or you don't and you accept that it may not work out.

Fixable Yes - But

Most digital camera repairs are over $100 (US$).

You can buy "used" Sony W180 cameras for under $100 (US$).

You can contact Sony Repair and get a quote for repair cost.
Sometimes they will offer a reconditioned camera at a good price.
