Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture.

I once flipped over in a kayak with my camera and it did not work at all. I removed the batteries and memory card and left it on the dashboard of my car where it was very hot for a couple of months. After a while it began working sporatically. It then worked perfectly for at least 2 years. Just this week, it reverted back to a black screen and takes black pictures? I do not know what is wrong with it now.

Wet lcd screen


You need to try Silica Gel Packets. There was a good article on associatedcontent.com that explains how to dry an iPod, MP3 player, cell phones, or any electronics. You need to place your device in a zip lock bag with Silica Gel Packets. Silica Gel will remove all the moisture from the phone and its components, something air drying will not do!
Just Google "Silica Gel Packets" and you will find several companies selling these products. There is also a web site called: http://www.SilicaGelPackets.com that has them.

Hopefully this will get your camera working right again. Here is the link to the pdf manual. http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW1.pdf
