Hi,
The camera need to repaired at the service centre. The image sensor on the camera circuit has gone bad. We cannot do much at home as it would require special tools to open and repair the camera. Do let me know in case you need help loacting a service tech near your place . If the camera is under 1 year service warranty call up canon.


Thanks

Change batterys, black screen would suggest a loose connection or faulty screen, hows your warranty?
you can get a free repair estimate from http://www.advancecamera.com/repair if you are outside of warranty and you are sure that its not simply turned off from settings.

SOURCE: blank screen

So you can see images that are on the card from previous taking but not new? Just to confirm - this is an optical SLR? With a mirror that flips up when you press the button - is that right? If so it souns like to mirror is not going up. Can you hear it go up? Come back

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all day perfectly fine turned back on screen blank, still takes photos, Still flashes, still beeps when press buttons just lcd screen is black likes its off?...


Hi

Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

Blank LCD screen


First, let's try the obvious. Did you accidentally hit the "DISP" button (bottom row of buttons, third from the left)?

If not, you mention you can see the photos on the PC. Do they look fine, or are they also black or distorted?

I had the same problem - not entirely sure about the causality but it seemed to work again after I took the memory card out and put it back in. Worth a try I guess.
