Black screen when camara is in photo mode

When i switch on the camara, in photo mode, on the screen appears all the details, but no picture either through the view finder, or when in view pane mode. its just black & blank. the camara works fine for viewing photos. but not for taking them. in fact, when i take a picture its of darkness. and yes, the cap is off. but thats how the screen appears, as if the cap is on. anyone else had this? or know what to do. many thanks, charlie. puzzled.

Re: black screen when camara is in photo mode

Anyone else had this? or know what to do. whatever best you can do is to take the camera to a good repairer as you can't fix the problem by yourself. there may be two possible reasons for the problem. 1) bad image sensor i.e. damaged CCD or 2)shutter blade are not working. the shutter blades may be jammed due to friction are no signal.
