I have just had the same problem. I found the text below on another forum from 2005. I tried it and it worked for me, I am back to normal, hooreh!

Hey Shutterbug, I have an S70 also and the other day I was scanning the trouble shooting part of sony’s site and read that to reset the S70 you need to pull the battery and hold the power button in the on position for about 15 seconds. Then put the battery back in and try it.. Let me know if this helps,, Lance

If you are familiar with camera repair then apart camera and check navigation switch board is intact with main board of camera.

It seems as if my lens is not working. I getting a black screen when I change to shoot mode.


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

I have a Cannon SD1000 stuck in revie mode. My daughter pulled it


If this was indeed dropped STOP! take it to a camera shop so they can do the repairs as you could damage other parts in the camera.

What could have happend when she dropped the camera the sensor inside got stuck into position to protect it from further damage. My advice is spend a couple bucks and take it in you be glad you did!


Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/edwy_1a56970cf1ea4620

Indoor pictures are fine; however, when I take a picture outside, it is "white." Have I accidently changed a setting? Thanks for your help.


First make sure your mode selector dial is set to the red camera WITHOUT an M next to it (ie it's in Auto and not Manual mode). If so...

Now the A430 is not capable of taking 15 second exposures as recommended for the fix. Instead try setting the camera to manual mode, turn off the flash, got to a darkened room, and take a picture. Open the battery door while the red and yellow light are flashing. If after many tries this does not work, then consider trying Fix #5a on the site. But do so with the camera turned off and the lens retracted to lessen the chance of damaging the lens mechanism.

Black Screen and takes blank pictures


It sounds like a stuck shutter. As the camera is less than a year old, Nikon should fix this for you for free under warranty. Contact them.

For others that experience this with cameras that are out of warranty:

STUCK ON STANDBY


I took the ****** apart and found two spring-loaded black triangular plastic pieces poking out of two rectangular chips about 2mm square, just below the circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes mode – play, video, camera. Actually I found one of the above, because the second triangular piece was stuck in the closed position. A bit of jiggling and voila the problem was fixed.
That was the good news. The other news is that I must now reinsert inside of the shell a black circular piece of plastic that affixes to the rotating circular piece on the outside of the camera that changes the mode. When properly attached this circular piece manipulates the triangular pieces to change the mode.
I think that the likelihood of getting this piece properly aligned and affixed so that it moves the triangular pieces properly when the mode knob is rotated falls into the statistical probability range of pork taking wing. But worth a try.
