    Yes i have same problem with 4 camera (DSC-5300).

    I opened the case of camera.

    camera board was damaged.

    i saw a part with 190 FP 52 no. was damaged but i don't know what is that.

    I try to asked from d-link co. but i didn't get any response from d-link.

    I think D-Link Co. only want to sale their products without any support.

    When i speak with technical men in d-link, they don't know any things about technical problems, all of them only know everythings about sales.

SOURCE: hi guys.... problem with the dcs5300g

I have 7 DCS5300G and 1 of them got the blackscreen, since DLINK has no support at all I decided to gut the camera myself and learn a thing or two... what I found is that there is a small "capacitor" next to the lens' control board, and it was burnt... I
went to an electronic parts store and got a similar one and got it
to work again... I bet your problem is that same one...

SOURCE: My DLink 5300 G internet camera suddenly says "No Signal."

  1. Remove the Java update and roll it back to the previous state.
  2. If it does not resolve the issue, reset the camera.
  3. Lightly insert a paper clip or a similar sized object into the reset hole on the back of the camera, press lightly and then release the button.
  4. The LED on the front of the camera will begin blinking red and green.
  5. When the LED stops the blinking, the reset has complete.
  6. If the issue is still present, restore the camera to factory settings.
  7. Insert the paperclip or other tool and press on the button continuously.
  8. Wait for the LED on the front of the camera to blink red and green and hold the button through two cycles of blinking (about 5-7 seconds.)
  9. Withdraw the tool after the second cycle of the LED blinking and factory restore has been completed.
  10. Run the installation wizard. If you don't have the installation CD, go to the manufacturer's website and download the software.

Screen/pictures are black

Sounds like your screen has died. Check with an authorized Nikon dealer.

I have a Samsung SL620 which has worked perfectly for several years. Now when it's turned on, all you see on the screen and on the last picture taken are distorted red/purple/black vertical lines.

All things break down and if you have had the camera for several years then maybe its time to invest in a new one. It sounds like it doesnt owe you anything. You can buy the same camera if you really like it only it will be a more modern version

Image goes to black on Sharp flatscreen.

An LCD unit? Sounds like the backlight is failing. When it goes black next time, use a strong light next to the screen and look for a faint image on the screen....

If it is the backlight, its a service shop issue.

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting...

The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive

The screen is black and won't take pictures

Many times when the screen is black, that means no signal is getting to the lcd from the ccd. Some cameras had a ccd problem, and may be fixed by the maker, for free. Nikons, Canons, Sony, and others have had this problem in the last few years. The ccd had internal problems and the same sensor was used in many point and shoot cameras. If you want to search this, search on the net for Service Advisory, or Service Notice. Some companies may have another way title this problem

Black LCD screen on camera

Just had the same problem (black display). I moved my hand in front of it and took pictures of things but nothing happened. Then my girlfriend tried to point it to a lamp, and all-of-a-sudden it kinda woke up from a screensaver or something. So weird, but it worked. Perhaps it needs enough light in order to start using the display and lens. I couldn't take any pictures when the LCD was black. So, try pointing it towards a strong light source before you break your camera.
