Re: black screen when looking through eyepiece

If camera will only display black screen, there's probobly some kind of blocking in the lense. try restarting the camera. first save all data from memory-card, then restart it, unpug everything you can, take out batteries, and leave it alone for a day. if problem aint solved and you dont have the professional knowladge to open the camera and search for the disruption, you should take it to the store.

Can't see through the eyepiece at all. It's black but you can take a pic and see it on the screen

Some of these cameras have a button that you have to press before you can see out the view finder.

Top viewing eyepiece is broken. The rubber around the casing is broken also. How can I get a replacement?

Some sellers have some pretty good aftermarket replacements. Give them a look. Sony Center was makeing this job at 2010, but no more; even way, you could try calling at Digital Product Support: 1-877-462-4464 . Also, try asking in this link for Minolta Support site; additionally, I quote some comments about this part...

I got the round eyepiece from Orion Store Site and it fit perfectly. I liked it so much I adapted one to my more recent Panasonic. It was a perfect fit for the D7i. You stretch the rubber around the existing eyepiece.

Also, could try to contact with this seller: EC-1200-KONICA-MINOLTA-EYEPIECE-CUP-Dynax-5-4

Hope this helps.

LCD Screen does not work properly

Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.

Screen appears faulty

With switched on try pressing the camera casing around the edges of the screen. This may be a loose connector and squeezing the camera casing may rectify it - then may perhaps it will not. Try the menu button If it comes up look for the Reset function. Carefully look in the manual in case there is an error correction method. Failing all that Get onto the Samsung web site Technical Help.

Black screen on LCD and in the eyepiece

Your camera is a reflex camera, it means what the lens you see If the displays are black it means that there's a block inside the lens, probably the inner mirrors are stuck. Try resetting the camera. Save the photos on the memory disk, disconnect whatever can be disconnect, get out the batteries, and let the camera rest for a day or two If the problem haven?t been solved and you don?t have the knowledge how to open the camera take it to fix, hope the insurance is still good. Good luck
