Re: No image in viewfinder

It sounds as though the shudders not opening.. Now one very easy test is to after you turn it on is to tapp the lens a few times OOHH NOT SO hard!! just lightly to see in the veiwfinder if theres ant reaction If not unless you wanna take it apart and probably see nothin g out of the ordinary (LIKE the old check engine lite so you pull over and open the hood and check the engine?? what did you find?? was it still there LOL) no my point is that you wont be able to find something if your not sure on whats supose to be there But its great if you can fix it any who. See if this helps. Sonys tech # 800-488-7669 good luck

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).

Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

No image on monitor

Hello Jillnell,

This symptom may occur in cameras with an optical viewfinder. These cameras have a power save feature that turns OFF the display after about 2 seconds. Simply press the DISP button to cycle this mode OFF or ON.

If that doesn't help, then most likely it is a faulty CCD sensor. If it is under warranty, its best to get it replaced. You will have to get the camera serviced if it is not under warranty.

You can find details about authorized service centers and out of warranty repairs HERE.

Hope that helps, and thank you for using FixYa!

Sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This turns the screen on and off in photo mode to save batteries (you'd then use the optical viewfinder in its place). Just press the button one more time with the camera turned on.

No image is available to view on the lcd screen canon ixus85is

Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.

The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.

I realize this probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

When switched on, display reads "In synchronized monitor mode"

Cycled through display options, still couldn't get viewfinder image. Checked images already on card, and they showed OK, so screen operating properly. Went back to viewfinder mode, got lots of horizontal lines across screen. Realised I could do no more, so took camera to shop it was bought from, who checked it and said it had an electronic problem that needed professional repair facility, so camera has gone for an estimate of repair cost.

No Image on display screen

Does the play back show any of the pictures you have taken before? are you sure the little lens cover is opening? there is a shield that closes down to keep the lens protected from debris and finger prints. Sometimes they can get jammed and not open. Tap on the front of the lens see if it opens. Switch it to auto mode if its not in auto mode.

LCD Monitor on ,and the Electronic Viewfinder turned off

If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
