Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I can't see anything..

When i turn it on i can't see anything the screen is black but if i look really closely i do see something..i tired to find something on the menu but since i can't see anything i don't even know where to go. i took it to best buy and they told me i might have to buy a new LCD and replace it. i don't know where to get them and i was wondering if there's another possible reason why it happened.
please help..

    My screen works but is very dark, I've had this camera repaired before for problems with the circuitry and now its no longer covered by the warranty, these cameras are just not good quality for the 300+ dollars you pay for it... I asked for a quote and they expect it would be over 100 dollars to repair and certainly not worth it

There is another reason but its worse...
it might be some of the circuitry is screwed up!
its hard to find an LCD screen because:
1. all electronics generally have different LCD screens
2. suppliers tend not to sell individual screens
its probably easier to take it to a repair shop.

My sony camera dosn't work and i can't see anything just black screen


of course you need to check first, is it completely black screen. could be that its not even turning on.lucky if lets say beep feature was set to on . check if you press any buttons, is there any beeping sound. try to even press the playback and check if any icons will appear.or press the lcd button repeatedly and check if something will happen . if not , do power reset. take out the battery and hold the power button for 30sec. its like refreshing the memory of camera.. if still same thing. try changing batteries. camera also turns on by pressing playback button. if all ts fails, camera needs service. could be something wrong with its sensor.

Camera won't show anything but black in the screen ... Or looking through the eye piece (canon S3 power shot) think the cold weather caused it


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The screen is black, i cannot see anything on the


First thing to check is to make sure that you didn't just accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera, manually turning the screen off. Press the DISP button once with the camera turned on. If that didn't correct the problem, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras.

Olympus 1050 SW completely unresponsive to any button


the lens may be stuck ... that is not coming out or not returning in either condition causes it to do something like that ,i.e blingink red light or an error code etc .... solution is that you'll need to open up the camera with a set of precission screw drivers and manually turn in or out the lens to start it back in operation either ways its a bit technical if you never did it before ....could be caused by moisture getting into the camera .....

It is possible you have the display turned off... Some cameras allow you to do this to save battery.
