Does your camera have a "DISPLAY" or DISP button on the back. Many cameras do, and its used to manually turn the viewscreen on and off to save batteries. If you notice such a button, turn your camera on, and press this button once.

If this doesn't correct the problem, please provide more details like your camera's make and model (like Canon A70). Also try taking a picture and downloading it to your computer. Verify that the picture looks OK. The reason I'm asking this is that yes, it may be the manufacturer's problem as a defective CCD can also cause this symptom.

Hi,

Send the camera back, it's obviously faulty by what you have explained.
It should be under the manufacturers warranty so there will be no repair costs.

The camera may be faulty or it needs to be reset to the factory settings.
Try removing the battery leave it out for at least 1/2 hour, then replace the battery.
If it doesn't work then you need a new camera.

Hi there,

I know it was a while ago now but I just found your post, the lens on mine broke yesterday but being a student I'm looking for someone with a broken identical camera with spare parts to fix it rather than buying a new one. Did you fix the camera, if not and it is lying around unused I would be very grateful if you would part with it so I can get mine working again. I am looking for a working lens.

Please contact me at samutacaratti@gmail.com

Kind Regards
