It sounds like your shutter has become stuck closed. Normally the shutter stays open while you compose the pictures and then closes when you hit the button to take the picture allowing the image sensor to record what it saw at that moment. If it stays closed you will not see any image at all, but the normal icons and text on your camera's display will still show. The same symptoms can also be caused by a failed image sensor, although this is less common. Freeing a stuck shutter requires disassembly of the camera and lens assembly. Check with your manufacturer for recalls and/or warranty support. If they cannot help you for free there are repair providers online who can work on your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I had this problem with my S2 IS and Canon fixed it for free. Their service receipt said it was a failed optical unit. The S1 IS model has a service advisory about CCD failures that Canon will replace for free, but the S2 IS model does not yet have a service advisory. Canon should add the S2 IS model to its service advisory immediately because many customers are experiencing this problem and according to online reports, Canon's repair policy is inconsistent. Some customers are being charged for the repair and some are not.

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.


I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.

No picture on lcd screen only when taking pictures


Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on back (it turns the screen off to save batteries). If so, press this button again to turn your LCD screen back on.

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

Black screen


Assumed that LCD screen is black and what about Eye piece viewfinder? Does it show picture to you?
If LCD Screen is black, it means it has no back-light. check any button to turn back light on & off at LCD portion.
There can be an other reason of black LCD. a flexible cable which connects LCD and Camera circuits and it can be broken/ cracked/ out of order.
