Hello,
I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
Approximately how old is the camera?
Did the camera suffer any kind of damage before the display problem started?
e.g. immersion in deep water or severe shock/drop, or exposure to high temperature?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No damage, never in deep water, most time in a small camera case when not in use. I live in Florida where it is quite warm and use this camera as a back up to a full frame Sony digital when doing outside activities and wipe off after each use, then air dry because I sweat quite badly. Images are perfect, just the display is hard to use. Hope that helps .
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sorry forgot, camera is about 3 .5 years old.
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Ok, it seems that the display may have gotten damaged somehow.
Do you use any cleaning chemicals on it at all, or just a damp cloth?
Either way, it is likely that the display will need to be replaced to get rid of the splotches on it.
