Re: 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

After assembly camera lcd displey is still off

Perhaps in disassembly pressure on the LCD cracked the crystal display with will cause a rich black screen. If the camera has both internal and LCD displays, perhaps the switch is set to the eyepiece? My lumix will shut off the LCD and turn on the eyepiece to save battery. Check wires to that switch.

LCD woont turn on properly but the camera takes pictures while the screen remains black or in my case dark grey as its not totally black.

The water has ruined the LCD, water and electronics seldom mix, you are lucky it still will at least take pictures. If it is a high end model then send it back to the Factory repair center listed in the user manual (or phone number to find a repair center).

My fuji finepix s700 digital camera green power light come on but the screen is black

I apologize, but did you check to see if the elexctronic viewfinder is active instead of the LCD screen? There is a switch to the right of the viewfinder labelled EVF/LCD and if you accidently pressed that then the LCD stays dark until that is pressed again when the camera is on.

LCD Display Blank

I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

Very, very dark (almost black) lcd screen, but is functional

The LCD viewer is made up of the LCD screen, and the backlight. Your backlight is burnt out, or the circuit board isn't sending power to it. Backlights can be replaced separately.

Coolpix 5700

If you see some text or icons on the LCD but no live shot, the LCD is good but most likely your CCD sensor is out. This is a manufacturer defect and will be covered free by Nikon even if it is out of it's original warranty. Go here for the Nikon link:

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.
