    The problem is most likely that you simply need to turn the live view on, but it's hard to tell. You need to specify what brand and what camera model you have.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

My camera the screen dont work is black, it take picture, but i have to look thru the hole


These point and shoot cameras are known for such problems. I have purchased many off ebay and worked on them. Some I wish I had never touched and some were easy fixes. When you dont use them for a long time they seem to go bad, the batteries are a big problem. Contacts in these get crusted with acids and just one flake of that will get on other parts and cause all sorts of problems. Black screen is huge problem with all makers. My advice is look for another camera unless you have soem very small tools and take it apart. I fixed on just by readjusting the ribbon cable just a fraction and the screen came back alive. Good luck

Note, if you're going to try fix 5a on the above blog page, do it with the camera turned off to lessen the chance of damaging the lens.

Screen goes black when a/v cord connected


I had a bad cable on mine. Once you plug the cord in the camera controls will appear on the screen. If you get a hold of Sony they can get you a new one.

You might be able to find a new one at a computer store depending on what connection goes to the back of you camera to get it to work (like a mini jack).

Takes photo but black screen


Are you sure the camera is set so the LCD (the screen) is lit? Check if the EVF (electronic viewfinder) is working. At the right of the screen, you will find two buttons on top of each other. Press the top one once or twice and see what it does.
