The camera does not require a new CCD. This problem is most likely due to a stuck or malfunctioning shutter mechanism in the lens. Normally the camera will open the shutter to allow you to see the image so you can compose, and then when you take the picture it will close the shutter momentarily and record what the CCD saw at that moment. If the shutter does not open in the first place - all you see is black. If this is in fact your issue the camera will need to be repaired. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I'm sorry to contradict advance, but this definitely sounds like a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. You need to do this before March 31, 2008 so get going! See this link:

Coby 40 LCD TV has splash screen and sound, but no picture


Looks like you might have issues with your screen it self the lights and all internal issues. You might have to take into a repair shop to get it done, a fuse might have been blown up. If you have warranty try to take it in and get it fixed.

Partial black screen


A number of things could be wrong.
See if you can get the menus to work correctly.
If you can see the menus then the problem is not in the playback system, but in the taking part of the camera.
Could be a ccd problem if the menus are okay.
If you can get the menus, set all to default, and then test it.
If the menus also shows the bad picture details as you have described, then the camera needs repair.

KODAK eASYSHARE c530 BLACK SCREEN DOES NOT TAKE PICTURE


You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

Black screen


If you can view pictures that were already taken before you ran into these problems, it may be that the sensor has gone bad. Please see this link for your options. (If you're not in the USA, your regional Canon service organization should provide you the same options.)

Konica Minolta Dimage 7 delay in start up and shot down procedure Hi, I have a Minolta Dimage 7 Digital Camera SN91202050. I'm very keen in electronics and I have its service manual (45 pages). Few months ago, I upgraded the firmware to ver 2.01e. (I read the full compatebility notice before installing). The camera worked so fine. I've got about 2000 jpgs And the last day I took about 200 jpgs in a very short period of time. So I was enforced to exchange the batteries during the snapshots. I'm using 2500mAh MiMH Kodak batteries. I noticed that the grey front right hand part of the camera is a little bit overheated. The next day, and after the camera returned to its normal temperature, I tried turning the Main Switch/ Mode Dial from OFF to Recording Mode, after putting a completely charged batteries. Unfortunately, I heard a small sound "Tick" then nothing happened else, the Data panel stayed dim(unlit) and with no data, and no red indicator had seen, also the monitor LCD didn't start. I didn't hear the noises which the camera should give in normal conditions. I left the switch as is, few minutes later, the camera continued the startup procedure, as I heard the noises and the Data panel lit in green and it displayed the normal status. I made several snapshots and everything were going well. I turned the **** to playback mode, I have seen the entire snapshots I did. Which mean tha the CF card is working well. Also all the other knobs were working properly. Then I decided to turn the camera OFF. Again, the LCD monitor turned OFF directly, but the upper Data Panel was left ON!!! And I heard "tick" Few minutes later, it turned OFF automatically. And I heard the same noises in the normal manner. 1-Does that mean the main board had a cold welding point? Or, the board was affected in the earlier overheating. I tried to use the transformer instead of the internal batteries, and I found this same situation. Delay in the turn on and turn off. And also the delay period is the same. 2-Does that mean that some chemical capacitors were damaged? ( wich capacitor should I replace?). 3- Does that mean there is a cold welding in some points beyond the processor in the MAIN PCB ASSY(0402) due to the frequent humidity and overheating? N.B I tested the internal backup battery, and it gave 3.24V (it's ok) Kind Regards, Soubhi Sabbagh Email: s.sabagh@aloola.sy
