Default Problem with LCD

I've got Sony DSC-P51 for about half year. It has always until now, when I've noticed one problem.

Sometimes when I put camera on and start the shooting mode, the camera starts normally, but the LCD doesn't show the graphic view, but only the screen "information" (resolution etc.)! In place of the picture there's only black color. In such cases I've just closed the camera and started it again and it's worked after a while, but there must be something wrong with it anyway.

Sometimes when the problem occurs, the LCD "target view" has been "flashing" between "the black screen with information" and "right, functioning view".

Does anybody have idea what's that about? Please inform me! Thanks.

Time to phone Sony. You're not the only one with this problem, just found the following in a review:

"This camera only work intermittently, some times you turn it on and you can take photographs, ten minutes later you turn it on and you get a black screen. Guess what you get black pictures."
