    No there is no picture all just pitch black and I just founf out a few hours ago that now it won't turn off and I really don't have the money to get it fixed that why I'm trying to fix it myslef but I don't want to break the camera more then it is.

    Exact same problem here, except that it bricked itself about a year ago for no apparent reason.

    I hadn't used it for a couple of months, and one day I turned it on to find a black screen, and I searched for a solution for months, and finally conceded that I had a brick now instead of a camera.

    Today I took it apart and pushed on all the ribbon cables I could see that related to the display, but I can't find my AC adapter so I can see if it worked yet.

    If it worked, I'll let y'all know.

    Well, I found the adapter, plugged it in, and now I have a white screen, where before I had a black screen.

    Can't really say if this is an improvement...

    I'll wait until the battery is charged to see if it's still a brick, eerrrr, paperweight.

Could be back light has failed[ can you see any feint images at all? Or a connector has come adrift or a board failure of some kind. If the camera if fairly new then get onto Gateway tech support. If it has no warranty left -I fear the price of a repair will be more than the camera is worth but you can try for a repair.

Dc-t50 won't transfer pictures onto my computer


Hey roboticgirl,
What is most likely causing this are the drivers that run the included software have either been accidentally deleted or they need to be updated. I would reinstall the software that came with the camera, or you could purchase a card reader and upload your pictures to your computer that way which should not require any drivers other than the ones in your operating system. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
