Re: my screen is blank on all modes except playback and...

If you can playback captured images ok but in capture mode your screen goes blank and taken shots are black then the CCD sensor in your camera is faulty and has to be replaced. Nikon agent -if you can find one- will do this for you but it may be uneconomical repair on this entry level model.

My Nikon Coolpix s4 shows no picture on screen but just black. No image.

I wish I could solve as I have the same problem. The LCD shows the menus settings but does no display the picture image - same whether in camera mode or playback mode. Please help.

Viewfinder is blank, but the camera works normally.

Iris or Aperture not working its all time off so that you can not see through camera.You need to change Iris cable.

It's impossible to turn the camera off. Only way is take out the battery.
No button warks, but I can change the shooting mode and turn playback, but I can't change the image in playback mode.
Please, help me to solve this problem.
I think, the camera needs to be restarted, but how to do that?
Thanks a lot.

Panasonic DMC-TZ1 operates in Playback mode only


The position from the dial wheel is not corresponding with the electrical position. If you can do it by yourself you can adjust it and tighten the midscrew from the dialwheel

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

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.)

LCD Screen Black/Blank. ? ? ?

Perhaps you have quick view turned off in the setup menus. There's no way the CCD is the problem as the camera takes pictures.

This sounds like a broken or cracked LCD screen. The backlite is working, thus you will get the white screen. The LCD could also be disconnected internally, or has other problems. But this is a direct problem with the LCD.
A camera like this can usually take pictures, and you may be able to use it to set the menus by using the video cable to the TV or computer screen (some flat screens have video inputs).

Shooting mode will not operate

Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you. This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty. Good luck my friend. Joe Weibel
