It seems defective CCD Imager problem in camera.
Since you have not mentioned Nikon camera model so I'm unable to provide you specific help for this black-screen issue.
You can click on Nikon Service Advisory page to check your camera model there and related Nikon advisory. Nikon offers free of cost repair facility for models in advisory list.

Screen has a giant blue line through the center and can only barely see about 1/6 out of the screen


When you can make pictures, and view them on a computer and not on the camera screen, nothing is wrong with the lens or the photo sensor. But I think something is wrong with the LCD screen. Cold be the screen itself, but also the connection to the screen or deeper in the camera. If you can't solve a camera problem, after removing the battery, and reinserting it after a few seconds, the mostly you should contact the service centre. Be aware that some repairs can cost more than a new camera of the same quality. So ask what it will cost first.

I have a D40, it dropped and broke the LCD so I can't see anything in it. if I try to take a picture I hear it focus but no picture. I checked the lens on a friends camera and it works fine. My question...


Take some shots, take your memory card out and insert into a card reader and see if the shots are there. If yes, then camera is taking shots. If not, then something else is wrong. Theoretically, if the LCD is cracked or broken, the camera should still work, just not the shot preview or getting to the menu system. Why waste time with the shot preview? I never use it. While someone is looking at the shot they just made, I'm busy taking the next shot, which might be the better.

Lcd screen is black can't take new pictures


Hi Guys, My A620 is almost out of warranty :-{ and the lcd went blank. Could still take pictures and view them, just couldn't see them on the lcd screen. After looking through all of these trouble shooting pages, someone on another page suggested to reset settings, manual pg 28. Or on the camera switch on, Menu, go into tools scroll down till you reach rest all and ok. Doesn't clear pics already on there, and mine now works fine :-) phew. Good luck xx

Pictures are black


My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?

LCD Dispaly malfunction


The screen has two components. The LCD, and the backlight. You can buy broken cameras relatively cheaply on ebay (or if you have it, craigslist). Do that, and you might be able to replace the screen.

Pictures are black


If you can display pictures in playback mode but screen is black in capture mode then the CCD sensor has stopped working and needs replacing.

Cant take any pictures


the Shutter or some assicated components is shattered. This may be a repair situation at Nikon- but if you have had the camera for some time I suspect you will be buying another camera.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem


No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
