    Well, what the title says...my camera's screen is grey when it is turned on, although I can still take pictures with it. The camera is a Sony DSC-S40 just to let you know. I don't know if it is the camera's inside hardware or the software that is creating the problem.
    I want to know if I can fix this before sending it to Sony. So, if there is no help you can give me, is there anywhere else you can recommend to find a possible solution to this problem?
    Thanks(y)

    Have you pushed the “Monitor” button to the lower left of the 4-way buttons? It cycles the display on and off. Can you see anything when you press the Menu button?

    Assuming you know about the monitor switch you are probably going to find your LCD isn’t going to work. There is no menu setting I can think of that would cause the LCD to not display when you cycle the monitor switch.

    And if you can’t see anything in menu mode the camera will have limited utility even though it has an optical viewfinder.
