Re: Screen desplay

Mine just started doing the "Black Screen of Death" that according to numerous 'net sources is also quite common with Sony products. Since mine is almost two years old and out of warranty, and has seen somewhat moderate use , I took it carefully apart and found the problem : a very flimsy and fragile, cheaply made ribbon-harness to the screen that makes some contortionist-like twists as it goes to the hinged display. After opened and closed numerous times, the flimsy ribbon-harness has obviously developed a break in the wiring harness. Solution: DO NOT buy hinged or flip up/out digital display devices if you expect any longevity out of the device !
VuPoint Solutions has gone to great measures to hide any direct contact with them via internet concerning problems like this, I've not found any way to contact them to find out what it would cost to get mine repaired .

Canon eos rebel xsi has black screen while taking pics.It shows the pic afterwards and shows the menu so the screen works but shows black screen while taking a pic

I think it is because the camera has a sensor. The screen turns off so as not to distract you or let light from the screen bother you while taking a shot. You can check this in the manual.

Nothing or black screen shows up when pic is taken

The problem is with the software in the camera! So take your camera to the nearby service center and do a format of your camera! That will fix your problem. Also check whether there is any problem in ur LCD screen!

Actually, the problem was that the DISP button was pressed causing the screen to turn black to save battery life. Easy fix. Just pressed the DISP button again until the display showed what i was looking at through the view finder.
