Question about Leica Digilux 2 Digital Camera
I have a black screen on viewfinder or monitor. The battery is charged. I moved several months ago and did not use the camera since the move. When I got it out the on/off button was in the on position.
Okay, I have found the solution (along with Megant, it appears.) It is definitely a dead sensor issue. I contacted Leica via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and received a response from JoAnn Scott, a Leica customer service manager (email@example.com) stating that the sensor issue is a common one and is covered under an extended warranty. I shipped my Digilux 2 to this address:
Leica Camera Inc. / Customer Service Manager
Re: Dead Sensor Repair
1 Pearl Court, Unit A / Allendale, NJ 07401 / USA
and within 2 weeks received a repair ticket from Leica, identifying the issue and indicating a zero balance for the repair. A follow up with JoAnn revealed that the turnaround time on the repair would be 4 to 6 weeks. The most expensive part of this whole deal was the 18 dollars I spent insuring the camera when I sent it back via the USPS.
Hope this helps.

My digilux has the same problem. i just called Leica and they immediately knew what i was talking about and said that it was like the "CCD" burned out. after i had asked if this was a defect, she said he has yet to be determined, but to send it in and they will repair it for free. send in camera with a letter.
sounds scary but i guess i'll try! wish me luck.

I guess something is burned out - no repair is likely to be economical. Recharge the battery to see if it will kick into life or get a new battery to be sure.
