Blank screen on Panasonic Camera

My screen is also blank except for menu items. If I push in fairly hard on the top edge of LCD screen a image is seen and a picture can be taken. Not practical, 5 months old, $100 + for them to look at it. I will never buy Panasonic anything again.

Re: Blank screen on Panasonic Camera

I had the same problem. So I figured I'd take it apart and see what was loose. I removed all the screws around the outside and pulled the back cover off. There is a ribbon connector at the top with a locking cover. The cover was unlocked. I re-seated the ribbon connector and closed the lock and it works now. Let me know if you need more details.

Blank screen

If you can play back captured images without any problem then your camera has a faulty CCD sensor. If you can get hold of a new CCD sensor block for this model somehow then you can install it yourself. Otherwise camera has to go to your Nikon agent.

This is because your problem isnt the LCD screen viewer; if you take pics and transfer at pc... the same condition appears when you transfer this pics at PC ?

If yes, and the problem continue, could be the CCD image sensor go to bad; in both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Sony service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps

The view screen is black and you can't see what you're taking the pic. Battery is ok

If camera shows Menu item or any on-screen display in LCD but no live view to take picture then it can be either aperture problem or defective ccd imager.
And if you do not see any display icon in LCD then of course LCD section is bad or LCD back light is Off for some reason. Try to see faint image in LCD if it is totally blank by pointing good amount of light with flash light or some thing.

Nikon D80 - LCD screen goes blank in the mountains

In the mountains, are you subjecting the camera to wide swings of temperature or humidity? These could cause your symptoms.

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)

Blank photos

This is a CCD sensor problem ( see enclosed image of one taken out of a Cannon camera with similar specs to yours ). Contact Fuji agent as this is repaired under warranty .48f4e65.jpg

Blank screen while taking pictures

Sure this is a clear case of faulty CCD sensor if you can play back captured images ok. Parts and labor will set you back by +- $ 200 if you have it done professionally.
