Black screen when viewing photos taken

When I play back the photos I have taken on my camera some of the photos do not display, instead I just get a black screen. However when I view the photos on the PC all of the photos display. I have tried using a different memory card, but am still getting the same problem.

Re: Black screen when viewing photos taken

When the picture does not display - do you see the normal text and icons that you would expect to see? Or, is the screen completely blank?

When i open my camera to take a picture all i get is a black view. i cannot see anything on the display or through the view finder.

Does your camera also have an optical viewfinder? If so, chances are that you accidentally pressed the button that turns the screen off to save battery power. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. For your model camera, read the user manual to find out where this button is. On Canon cameras, it's usually a little button labeled DISP or DISPLAY. Just press it oonce to turn the screen back on again.
But if the above doesn't help, have you tried downloading photos taken when the screen is black? Are these photos also black? If so, chances are in this case that you are experiencing a stuck shutter. This is also very easy to remedy (see this).

Have a d8o take a picture does not show on back screen

If you wish to manually view all the photos you've taken, press the play button, it is located near the screen on the back with a triangle logo.

If you wish to automatically view photos after they've been taken, press the menu button, go to the sub menu with the pencil icon, and turn "Image review" to on.

If you wish to view the images on the back screen as you take them, this is not possible with the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.

Brand new canon slr camera. can't see a live pic on led

Canon 350D can only take picture it does not take video. On screen of course you can play the photos you have taken. But that is all.

When looking back at photos taken, the camera freezes and flashes up 'file error'. I have tried browsing slowly as well as quickly and it still happens, it is really infuriating!

The LCD screen of the Camera may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the Camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a Computer.

To play images you have taken on the Camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files.

Display screen no longer works while taking pictures

Sounds like they accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of the camera. This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time with the camera turned on.

LCD screen is black when in photo-taking mode


try chaning the menu options to LCD instead of View finder and things should get back to normal

if you are not too keen about the setting then you can just reset the settings to factory defaults and this should work again

hope this helped
pls rate the solution, thanks
