This sounds like it might 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:

What is a small dark area appears on viewfinder and photos?


is it only the view finder or does it appear on the photo as well because if it the view finder then it is the screen and if it is on the photo as well then its most likely the lense and once you have deterined this then you can know if it is just dirty or if the screen needs replacing

Canot see subject trying to photograph


Hello, You should contact Canon about the situation. Let them know you are aware of the problem CCD sensor on the S1 camera. Actually S1 is repaired free of charge because of the CCD problem. You should suggest that your camera probably has the same defect as the S1. See what they say. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Its a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. all on a sudden, LCD is not working. Monitors remains dark when I press 'On' button and the photo taken are also dark. However old photos on the SD card I can in the screen...


Hello

If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

Canon Power Shot SX10 IS - I've had camera for about 4 months. As of a week ago, I can only use small view finder for taking photos; the 2.5 screen for viewing does not work now. Able to view photos...


You can reset the camera to factory settings. If after that, you still have the same problem, make valid the Canon warranty since it's 4 months old.

The monitor is always black


the view finder is either burnt out or there is break in the camera somwhere causeing it not to display on the screen.

other then that refer to your owners manual to see if there is any battery saving features that turn off the screen that need a certain few buttons pushed to re-activate the view finder

Blank view finder fe-190


try switching your camera on in a dark room (do it at night with the curtains closed and the lights off).

if the screen lights up (should still be black or a very dark green),
then the lens or light sensors might not be functioning correctly.

if the screen stays conpletely black, then the actual screen might be damaged.


note- you might need to let your eyes adjust to the darkness before you switch your camera on.

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.
