    Thanks Dan,



    But I could not move the underside of the lens. The lens is formed of 3-concentric circular drum - inner two move to zoom in/out, the outer one is solid and fixed to the camera front. I still have black screen, grey black realy as I can see little icon all over the screen - red camera, flash, hand to list a few.

    I have the same problem! The camera was working fine one day and then it suddenly the screen turned black. I can review my previous pictures but when I take a new one it looks black. Have you found another solution other than playing with the lense? I tried that and it did not work for me. Please any help would be appreciated. I've had this camera for less than two years and it has been lightly used and well cared for.It's too bad because it takes great pictures.

Solution: Turn the camera on. Put it into camera mode so the lens opens. Then push up on the underside of the lens, you'll see the screen light up and it can now take pictures. This worked for me for a month or two. The problem is that I have to keep pushing harder and harder to get it to turn on, and now it turns back off as soon as I stop pushing. So I have to get a new camera. This is a widespread problem with this camera. I previously paid Panasonic the $162 to fix the zoom freezing up. I'm not paying again.

    you push up the part of the lens that telescopes out the farthest. you mention the two inner parts that telescope out. push up on the part that has telescoped out the farthest while holding the rest of the body still. you're essentially bending the frame a little bit. it causes whatever disconnection has happened to reconnect.

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

When I turn on my camera the screen is blank


Do the icons show up on the screen or is it totally blank?
Can you view previous pictures?
If the icons show on the screen then have a look into the lens to see if the shutter is closed over the inner lens. you may have to adjust the zoom to bring the inner lens and shutter mechanism up close to the outer lens to get a better look.
If the shutter is covering the inner lens then it is stuck and will need to be freed by opening the camera up.
If the screen is just black then it just may be possible that the ribbon for the screen has partially slipped out of it's socket on the main board.
If it comes out all the way then the camera should not even power up.

Black screen on canon sd1100 is


Actually, the problem was that the DISP button was pressed causing the screen to turn black to save battery life. Easy fix. Just pressed the DISP button again until the display showed what i was looking at through the view finder.

Camera screen remains black when I turn on shooting mode


Turn the camera on. With the screen showing, press the DISP button and this will give you a selection of different screen views i.e. squares for aligning shot squarely; black - thru viewfinder only; etc. Different modes will give you different screen displays i.e. P setting screens are different to when you have the camera set on AUTO.

Hope this helps.

E500 viewfinder does not display subject when tasking pix


Page 20 of your user manual manual explains about each time the INFO button is pressed while in shooting mode. The camera is not a live view LCD screen so after it shows you normal information and then detailed information if you press INFO button again the camera screen will shut itself off. To turn the screen on again you need to press INFO again. This is normal camera behavior.

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

CCD malfunction, common with Sony manufactured CCD chips. You are in luck, its a free repair regardless of warranty date.
