Re: Screen appears black

Your camera has a broken image sensor i.e. CCD. contact your nearest camera repairer to change the same, the only solution.

Screen is black . camera flashes no photo , trash bin appears

Could be a problem with the LCD display... it is defective. If you turn the unit on, and nothing is displayed in the LCD, not even a menu can be displayed and the > play button does nothing to show your pictures... then it is broken.

Display screen is black

I've been told it's the LCD Screen. I have a new LCD screen but now can not find any instructions to change it out. It is not in the manual. I wish I could help. And this sight appears to be complete useless.

LCD screen flashing

This is a feature and not a defect of the K100D. You can turn this off by going to the menu and going into the second tab (playback menu). Once there, go to preview display, where you will have 3 options - off, histogram and brighten areas. Set this to off (your camera is set to brighten areas, that is why the white parts of your photos appear to be blinking).
Hope this helps!

A95 LCD screen black and unable to take photos

There are quite a few of us with symilar problem, but the screen is not completely black: it has some purple or pinkish color when facing light. Old pics and menu can still be viewed. I noticed 4 symilar threads on Canon A95 within the last 5 mins without any search, just looking at the top questions.

No display on LCD

May be the lens block or CCD can be defective. Call the nearest service center and we can only assist in spares and service manuals.
