Sony DSC-W300 camera LCD problem

  c4rm0 18:34 09 Feb 2010

i bought a Sony DSC-W300 digital camera about 1 year ago and since then the screen is getting gradually worst. Its like the LCD is peeling away its hard to explain. I have kept the camera in a case all the time and i have never got it wet ect

I have uploaded a pic so you can get a rough idea

anyone know what has caused this and how much to get it repaired?

If so returnit to vendor pronto
Also contact support at Sony.

Just be aware as a general principle- little electronic gadjets do not get repaired.
And because it is a mass produced item it is possible this is not an isolated case- so Sony may have a recall in place.

I would approach Sony at the highest level; Certainly one should not expect to pay around £200 and it only last around 1 year. The sale of goods act should cover this.

If you feel capable of replacing the screen yourself, a new one is available here at reasonable cost;

Silly question, could it be a peel off protective cover? A lot of screens have these on when shipped.

canarieslover: Good point; worth investigating.

i bought the Camera from Ebay so no warrenty :( i have the original box / paperwork though

Canarieslover - i did original think it was a screen protector cover but i have tried picking at the edges but it doesnt come off and also when i press it down and move my fingers across the marks dont move

I have Emailed Sony support so i will see what they have to say about it
