Blank lcd screen

I have the exact same problem as Jim when i switch my camera on, i can see all the settings displayed but it is on a black backround, i.e. no image appears on the lcd screen or through the viewfinder, yes i have removed the lens cap. i therefore cannot record any images but i can record the sound. i can replay and view previously recorded stuff on the screen, through the viewfinder and onto the television. The camera has been used a maximum of 6 times since bought new about 3 years ago

Canon Rebel EOS T3 - camera has power but there is no LCD display whatsoever.


Has the camera been dropped or had a liquid spilled on it? Sound like a circuit failure. However, if it has been dropped it may indicate that one of the flexes has come out or the little flipper on the flex connector has popped up and the connector is not working.

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)

Samsung s860 digital camera turns on and then goes to blank screen and will do nothing else, to turn off it requires battery removal. same story with new batteries.


Dear customer

thanks for ur inquiry for ur product

If the LCD screen is blank or black when you have your camera in the Camera or Play mode, the camera may need service. To determine if this is the case, follow these steps:

1. Press the Menu button to see if the LCD screen can display the OSD (On Screen Display). 2. Set your camera to Play mode, and then see if the LCD screen displays a picture. 3. To eliminate the possibility of a user setting causing the problem, put the unit into Auto mode by rotating the dial on the units exterior to Auto Mode. Note: The word "Auto" appears on the screen when this mode is activated. 4. If putting the camera into Auto mode does not resolve the problem, test the unit in Play mode. If the unit operates normally in Play mode, but the screen in Camera mode is blank, your camera requires service which you can arrange by Creating a Service Ticket below. Note: Because your camera has an automatic LCD display shutdown feature, its normal for the LCD to stop displaying when the camera has been on for along period of time. This feature prolongs battery life.

urs sincerely

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...


The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):

LCD display is blank


Has the camera been dropped? If the camera appears to work properly and you can download the pictures to a PC ok, then it sounds like your LCD display has failed.

I have replaced several of these screens on Kodak cameras. If the camera is under warranty, you may be able to get it repaired free of charge, provided there is no evidence of abuse.

You can order the screen directly from the parts department of the manufacture and attempt to replace it yourself but I would only suggest doing that if you feel confident in doing so.

I wrote an article on how to replace a damged LCD screen.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

Blank LCD Screen


Does it still take pictures and you can see them by downloading them to a PC? If so, your LCD screen is probably bad and will need to be replaced. I have replaced these before, its not hard to do if you can purchase a replacement screen.
