Did you accidentally hit the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera?

    If the downloaded picture is also black, then sadly this sounds like a CCD image sensor failure. You cannot fix this yourself. Canon will fix this for free if the camera is still under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON for repair.

My fujifilm instax 8 won't take a picture (blue)


I had the same problem as you. When the film goes blank you noticed that the back is brown, not black? Well that is because you are not bursting the bubble of ink that comes in the bottom of the film.
What I had to do was open my camera and fix a small detail. It turns out that the control lever light intensity has a spring that can be moved from its original location. We must accommodate that spring to get everything back to normal. I have some videos of how I did. I hope to edit them soon so you can see how you did.

My vivitar vivicam X327 only takes black pictures. Everything works but nothing shows up when I take a picture


If you transfer the pics at pc, is the same condition? Black pics in pc? If yes, then isnt the LCD viewer, sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) 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 technical 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

Problems with the samsung camera. the screen is blank black!


Sounds like the ZIF connector for the screen or another part came loose. I will say it sounds like a hardware issues and I would strongly recommend looking into coverage via manufactures parts and repair coverage. About the picture folder not showing up, If your using the camera cord to attach it to the computer Make sure you turn the camera on after connecting, if the drive for the camera does not appeare in " Computer " I would say get a card reader for the SDHC cards and try to load the pictures through there.

I have a very nice 35 mm nokia camera with a zoom lens and lately when i get the pics developed, the pics come back blank or black. what could be the problem?


Black pictures mean under exposed or un- exposed film

Underexposed film can mean incorrectly set up or metering failure
Un exposed film simply means the shutter has failed
Open camera and look through the back and operated the shutter
Does it work?

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...


The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):

Canon powershot a540 black/web screen display


jvsnype and ygjeff21, have you checked to see if the pistures also come up as blank or distorted (a sure sign of a CCD failure)? If the pictures are OK, then it might be that you accidentally hit the DISP button, or the camera has a loose LCD ribbon cable connector. The reason I would suspect either is that ygjeff mentioned that the LCD would spring to life when he played with the buttons on the back of the camera.

If and only if the camera still takes good pics, and the DISP button has been checked, then would next recommend reseating the LCD ribbon cable into its connector (ALSO ONLY IF THE CAMERA IS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY). The following link may be of some help. Wouldn't recommend going any farther than the first three pictures. You just want to jiggle or reseat the ribbon cable where the LCD connects to the circuit board, nothing else:
