My fuji finepix s5600 has stopped taking pics,just as i put new batteries into it,i can look at previous photos that i took,but it just wont take the pics,why?

Is it showing any message on screen as to why it won't take pictures or is it when you switch over from viewing to taking pics that it shuts off or just won't let you take pics?

My viewing screen is black when trying to take a picture but when viewing pics I have already taken the screen is fine and show the pics..any idea what is wrong?

You need to go into the setup menu and turn on the display. This is sometimes turned off when you use the optical viewer or in low power modes. Your user manual will show you how to do this step by step.

Sony DSC-S750 can only see black on LCD

It seems as though either the lens aperture is not opening or the CCD has failed. You could send it in to us at for an estimate

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera

maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.
