    Same problem is happening to my camera which is not even 2 yrs. old! hardly used the thing, cost over $225 in Florida. LCD monitor is blank and black, multi-colored streaks in LCD etc. It just sucks that I paid so much for a camera that I didn't get my moneys worth!! I cannot afford a new one due to this stinking economy, I am not rich! living pay-check-to-paycheck! canon needs to send me a new one!

For the solution for the latter two posters, check this link. Canon will repair the camera at no cost if it is determined that this the problem, regardless of warranty status. Your description of the issue fits the technical notice.

For the original poster, it seems that the LCD is no longer working. This is not covered by the service notice, and if your camera is out of warranty, it would cost to have it repaired.

Can't seem to get the pictures to show randomly.


If you mean that you can't see all the pictures you've taken with your camera to show randomly on your camera screen, you need to activate the Slideshow feature in your camera menu.
Some cameras have this feature while others don't, check the menu on your camera and look for Slide Show, if it has it then you can go back and press the review button for your photos and it should play/show all the photos you've taken in a slide show fashion, hope this helps ?

I had the same problem. I just went into the menu under the tools tab, and clicked 'reset all' (scroll all the way to the bottom). I'm not sure what setting was changed, but my screen images all came back! (I had also switched out memory cards but that didn't seem to make a difference). I'm so glad, I love this camera and have taken many great pictures with it! Hope this works for others.........

If the picture is ok on the memory card then the problem with the display. If you can see the menu on the display but no picture and the picture in the memory card is blank then you should replace the CCD sensor.

You have to make sure that the sd memory card you were using, hasn't been in another camera. If it was, your camera read the memory card differently, and it didn't show you had taken any. If this was the case, put the sd card back into the camera you took it from, and hopfully it will show on that.

If I wasn't even close, put you sd memory card in your computer, and hopefully, they will show up on there.

I'm sorry if I didn't get what you were saying, and didn't even answer you problem. I hope this helps.

It only shows a black screen


I was having the black screen problem intermittently (of course when you really want to take a picture quickly). I downloaded v1.1 of the firmware from olympus (via the Olympus Master 2 program) and the black screen problem has not reoccurred yet. Hasn't been tested over a long period of time yet, but that seemed to fix it.

LCD Screen does not work properly


Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.
