Nothing appears on my NEX 5N LCD screen. Camera can be turned on and pictures taken using the view finder, but LCD screen is blank.

    \$\begingroup\$ Did it suddenly stop working? Had you changed any settings? Have you tried resetting the camera? Battery fully charged? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Specifically, did you set the display off? Is there an issue with the face-detection mechanism in the viewfinder (I believe it detects IR when you move camera to face, shutting the back LCD screen). \$\endgroup\$ Jun 19, 2015 at 22:49
  • \$\begingroup\$ I was taking photos of my son while it was suddenly disappear. I nothing changed any setting after attaching the view finder, I could continued. Today I insert the battery and turned camera on LED display was working for 2-3 second again nothing appears. \$\endgroup\$

Some cameras from some manufacturers are not known for durability. Best to send it in for repairs. Who knows they might even fix it for free.
