    Mine is doing the same thing. I have no idea what happened. I was taking pictures and it was fine, then I set the camera down and it wouldn't take any pictures after that (except of the black screen, of course).

Hi

Do the pictures turn out solid black but you can still see the menus on the camera and play back old pictures?
Or is the LCD solid black and shows nothing and so you can't do anything with the camera?

If the pictures are solid black but you can see menus then your CCD is defective and you will have to replace it or the entire lens assembly (which includes the CCD).

If the LCD is black and you can't see anything, then you have an LCD problem and that will most likely have to be replaced.

One solution would be to buy a defective camera online and do the work yourself, switch out parts and make one good camera.

If you don't want to try that, we are an affordable digital camera repair business (Google: Darntoothysam) and we can help you with either repair. We do lens repair for only $70 and this includes the parts and return shipping of your camera!
Just search for your model number on our website (Darntoothysam com) and you will find it listed. If you don't then please contact me!

Hopefully this information helps, if you need further help then please contact me.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

I have a DMC - TZ2 when I turn it on the screen is blank when I take a picture it is the same totally blank, dosen't matter which setting you put it on all the same (blank).


Hi,
This is caused by a bad or loose ribbon connector to the LCD screen...the only way to fix that is to take the camera apart and reconnect the ribbon connector.
You also can do a search for camera repair and send it away, but often the costs are more then the camera is worth...

If you do try to repair the camera be advised that there are dangerous voltages inside even cameras...be careful!!

Nothing shows on my screen, so I have no idea what I am getting in the picture. It lights up but is totally blank.


Seems your Sony camera got ccd imager chip problem and this part needs to be replaced to get live view to take pictures.
I would be in better position to help you out if you provide me model number of that camera because Sony offers free of cost repair for few models camera so let me know your camera model number.

When FinePix V10 digital camera is switched on the LCD screen is blank, The lens works but does not display picture. FujiFilm Digital Camera FinePix V10


Hi, When you say the screen is "blank" Is it totally blank or do the icons appear on screen? can you review any previous pictures etc?
As the camera still powers up it is possible that the ribbon for the screen has popped out of it's socket.
My email is listed in "the only way i know how.." In my tips n tricks section on my profile if you would like more advice.

Screen TOTALLY blank...


frank797,
Hi,
It depends on how wet, like submergeg or rained on? With the camera armor it should be fine. It's not gone yes there is a reset, it's a two button deal, turn on the camera and hold down the +/- button by the on off switch (they have green dots near them) and the AF button on the top for more than two seconds, normally the display panel turns off while the camera resets. IF this solves your situation rate my response. This site is free you don't have to pay for answers.

Display is blank


I can take perfect pictures indisde a building, but taking a picture outside, I can see the item but if I take the picture and looking at the picture the screen turns blank, seems to me that there is to much light exposure.

Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.

Turns on, takes pictures, blank screen


I know in most digital cameras there is an option buried in one menus to turn display OFF. Perhaps, you can have a look around in the various menus to turn screen back on. Also, there should be another button or feature that allows you to view the shots you've taken.
