First try pressing the DISP button on the back. If that doesn't fix it, then the problem may be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

My camera was dropped. The LCD screen is black with two small crack lines on screen. There are some light vertical lines but no image at all (in camera or playback mode). Zoom moves. I can hear camera...


The screen is fully damaged. You will have to get it replaced. Prior to that click a few snaps and transfer them to yous PC and check whether all the images are sharp and do not show any problem. Cause the service centre might try to get more money from you saying a different problem was found. If the images are fine. dont forget to mention the same to the service centre people.

DC280 Kodak Camera- Everything is working fine


Take the batteries out of the camera and let it sit for around an hour. Turn your dial to "set up", then put the batteries back in and turn the camera on, it should ask you to reset the date and time on the LCD. If it doesn't, your camera is essentially dead. Buy a new Panasonic FZ35 if you can afford it. Best All Around Camera I have ever had including the more expensive SLRs.

Fuji Finepix F30 Suddenly takes only all pink screens (no image)


This sounds like one of two problems -
Either an LCD screen problem or a bad CCD sensor.
A LCD screen problem would indicate one of two of the following - it was cracked, or the cable inside is either damaged or moved out of the plug and need to be reseated.

A bad CCD sensor would show a pink screen on cameras, but would also show menus on the screen as well, do you see those? The CCD basically captures the image the lens is seeing and translates it to an image the camera can save. Generally the CCD can not be replaced separately from the lens and will require an entire lens assembly for repair.

Camera does not react


I quote: "A couple of days ago after using it when trying to see the pictures on the camera the LCD did not show anything. The lens reacted and even take pictures but nothing was visible on the LCD screen."

That means that there was a problem either with a LCD display or with ribbon cable.

Now:"I tried charging the battery and removing it from the camera, now the camera only does a bit sound when switching on but nothing else, the lens does not even come out."

That means that the ribbon cable had probably shorted, now the camera may be furtherly damaged.

The camera must be disassembled to access the LCD and fix the problem.
The repair must be done by an experienced technician, as to access the LCD you need to remove both covers.

Kodak CX7330. turns on but LCD screen is black and won't take a pic


It sounds like a bad connection on the ribbon cable of the LCD screen to the camera's motherboard. The fact that when you physically move the camera around and you can get the screen to then work, tells me something is loose inside.

Good luck!
