A faulty battery can prevent your device from turning on. Try replacing the battery.
The battery currently inserted into the camera may have no charge. Try removing the battery and charging it using a proprietary Sony charger or replace it with a charged one.
Device automatically shuts off after a period of use.
Low Internal Temp Tolerance
Firstly, set the Auto Power OFF Temp. setting to High instead of Standard, which is located inside the Setup menu. This step will increase the camera body’s temperature tolerance so that you can shoot for longer before the unit has to shut down and cool off.
Open up the LCD screen and move it away from the camera body, allowing hot air to dissipate out of the device more easily. Alternatively, using an external recorder can take the workload off the camera’s processor, enabling you to shoot for longer.

The LCD screen is showing visual distortions, incorrect colors, or flickering.
Damaged LCD Screen
Your LCD screen may be damaged if it is showing visual distortions or flickering. Try replacing the LCD screen.
LCD Cables are Disconnected

If they are disconnected, connect the LCD cables to the motherboard using a set of tweezers and rebuild the camera by following the guide in the reverse order.
Photos Appear Blurry
Camera Shake occurs when the camera is moved or shaken during exposure. The function SteadyShot will help reduce the effect of camera shake. Enable the SteadyShot function by navigating to Camera Settings 2 from the menu.
There are two ways to clean the image sensor. You can enable cleaning mode in the camera, which will cause the sensor shake the dust off. The other option it to do it manually. Remove the lens and blow off any dust or debris (preferably using a manual mini blower).
