It is possible that the LCD is faulty. If you are able to open the camerra to check on the power and the connecting cord it can be confirmed.
If the pictures taken are perfect when loaded to the PC the fault on the LCD is confirmed.
Check for any faulty capacitors, check the power to the LCD from the power to confirm the LCD panel.
If screen is black you have 2 situations: camera is power on or power off. If its power on and screen is black, its very possible to have something defective inside on the cam microcomputer board or with the display block, and my suggestion is to get to a repair shop for a test or if you are still in the grace period from the manufacturer, to ask for a free investigation. Cheers (PS sometimes black screen occurs when the LCD inverter is gone)
Looks like a CCD image sensor failure a common fault in digicams these days. Point the camera somewhere and blindly take a shot. Open the image on your computer and see if it appears all dark. If it does then its an image sensor failure. On the contrary if the image appears properly then your LCD screen is the culprit.
I took a hammer to the shutter - now it opens! Actually, I tried the suggestion and it did not correct the problem. I guess I will have to get a new camera. Very disappointed as this camera is only four years old and well cared for.
I would suggest you to take it to some camera stores and get it cleaned.Because if u try to remove the camera and fix it,it might work fine it might completely kill the camera.So why u wanna take risk while there are ample stores near you.It wouldn't cost much........
If you're getting the 18-4489-957-000 error code, then give it a good tap on the corner where the lens cap is. A little tapping and the lens cover should pop closed. When you turn the camera on again it will probably work just fine.
I was just about to junk my camera when I googled the error code and found this very tip in another thread. It worked like a charm.
The camera may have shut off automatically to save power. Press the POWER button to turn it back on. Also make sure the mode dial is turned completely to the desired mode.
When the camera is connected to a computer, the LCD screen is disabled. When it is connected to a printer, press any button to display the print progress screen. After a moment, it disappears again.
