Question about Kodak EasyShare C1550 16MP 5x Optical/5x Digital Zoom HD Camera Blue - One
My screen is black when I turn it on and when I take a picture all you can see is the pixels so I know it took the picture. Any ideas?
Hello, Sorry to say but it needs service/repair, nothing you can fix.

Try downloading the picture to your computer to see if it is also black. If so, then yes it may be a shutter issue. A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The shutter in the camera is not opening to allow photographs, the motor that controls aperture has malfunctioned or the ccd sensor is not working, sometimes the systems controller board that the ccd is plugged into becomes detached and needs to be reseated back into place to make it operational.
