    I have one of these models and the screen went black. Could view pictures on memory card but could not take new ones.
    After some research I found out this is a known problem with a defective CCD and Sony will repair for free until April 30, 2009. Also applies to some other Sony models as well as some Nikon and Fuji.
    In this area I took it to the Sony repair facility at the north end of the Port Mann bridge. In the USA you can send it to their Texas repair facility
