Does it look like fluid is leaking out. If not then you have probably only damaged a screen not the LCD. If it is not the LCD I would just ignore it.

You could phone the manufacturer service centre as there is often a standard repair charge. @ 150 would be fair.

That sounds like you have broken the LCD. Check the Sony site for recommended service centres or go to one of the bigger camera dealers.

I know that Canon and Nikon offer repairs, but they are often fixed price deals, so if you phone them up with the model type they give you an idea of the costs. It will all depend on what they have to replace in order to fix it.

Do you have contents insurance that would cover the repair (or replacement if repair is too expensive)?

I cracked the top LCD on a D70 a few years ago. Nikon charged 80.00 to fix it. I claimed off my insurance and they paid up quickly - but only 30 as I have a 50 excess.
