I have recently been on vacation. I checked photos on the LCD screen after a days shooting. All was well. I have now downloaded the pictures to my computer. Photos from the first several days are missing...


Is your means that: you can't see some of your picture from your camera screen? I have met this problem before, this is because you have do some a action for your image when your see it on your PC, such as flip... The camera can't read the pictures edited by the other software...So your picture haven't miss...they are on your card,,and you can moved them to your PC and you can see them all.

Camera still takes pictures but LCD screen remain black(lit, differnet from when screen is off) at all times. Batteries are fully charged.


Please make sure to check if the battery is fully charged. Second, check the menu option for battery saving mode and turn it off. If the battery is getting old and not charging fully anymore the priority of the camera is the shooting mode.

Cannon Powershot A-620 black screen can't review


Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder to take pictures. To turn the screen back on, just press this button one more time.

Black screen while shooting, but still taking pictures not black


Nonononooooo fotomohamed, he can review just taken pictures on the LCD. The screen is working.

Actually, it sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save batteries (you would then use optical viewfinder). Just press it once and it should turn back on.

Camera screen remains black when I turn on shooting mode


Turn the camera on. With the screen showing, press the DISP button and this will give you a selection of different screen views i.e. squares for aligning shot squarely; black - thru viewfinder only; etc. Different modes will give you different screen displays i.e. P setting screens are different to when you have the camera set on AUTO.

Hope this helps.

Nikon coolpix S3- most of the screen is black on shooting mode


I had the same problem with mine. I searched the web and came across this one. My camera had a black screen but everything else worked. I read some of the comments and a few people said to hit it. I hit the camera in the side of my hand a few times and it started to work. Thanks for the info. It sound carzy but it works.

Now working Nikon coolpix
