    I tried this and just get a black LCD screen. I got this camera from someone else and didn't get a manual. Any idea where I might get a manual on line? Or any other suggestions of what I might try.

  • Mary Ashbaugh Jul 08, 2007

    It did come with a memory card. Do you think that maybe I need to get a new one? I bought the camera for my son at a yard sale, so I can't get the manual, but I can try to download one. Thank you for all your help. I really appreciate it.

    The screen is just black. No shadows. The only time I get anything on the LCD screen is when the message appears.

'No Picture' usually means just that. There are no images in the memory. So go take some pictures. Check you have the control to the picture taking mode and not the Viewing mode Give the manual a good read.

    Tell us more about the 'black screen'
    does it show anything at all- are there shadowy images showing with no light on.
    Do you have a memory card inserted?
    did it come with a memory card?
    Can you go back to the person you got it from and ask for the manual and software disk.

My camera shows black screen and I cannot see if I was able to take pictures or what. The screen just do not show anything. It's all black. What I can do for this? Any help??? Thanks!


You're right in saying that if you get ANY onscreen message with the computer connected, the LCD and its driver circuits are likely OK. I don't have that exact cybershot, but I have had a few, and most have a menu item to turn off various screen content, including the entire display. Its likely a battery saving feature, but if you turn it on and hit the MENU button and still see nothing, there must be some actual defect. If all else fails, before contacting SONY, take the battery out and wait at least 5 minutes and then replace.

The screen on my camera will not display anything at all. The camera appears to turn on, but the screen is blank. Even when I switch it from one mode to another, there is nothing displayed on the screen


Have you tried taking pictures with it? Do the pictures show up when taken? If so, then it's likely that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

KODAK eASYSHARE c530 BLACK SCREEN DOES NOT TAKE PICTURE


You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

Lcd screen stuck in usb mode?


Try removing batteries and card and leaving them out for a while to allow camera settings to default.
Replace batteries only and see if you get "Card Error" message.
If you get this, then try again with card fitted
Check firmware version

Possibly card storage too big. Upgrade firmware to version 1.77

If you have no user manual there is a PDF version available to download here:

All the error messages are given in the manual with possible solutions.

LCD Screen stopped working on camera.


Have you tried the 'Menu' button? If you've turned off the 'Review' feature in the settings menu, your LCD screen won't show anything unless the 'Menu' button is pressed. If it doesn't come on when you push 'Menu' with a charged battery installed, your camera will need to be serviced.
