My camera shows black on the screen and view finder but when I download the memory card the pictures are there?


This may seem silly, but is it possible that you're accidentally turning the camera on to camera mode rather than review mode with the lens cap on? That would explain a black screen without being able to view images on the card. Just a thought.

My camera view finder shows"Check


Good day,

The CHECK DIAG appears in the view finder when the camera's automatic self diagnostic function detects an abnormality.

From here you must first perform error checking on your camera by doing the following:

Press the menu dial.
This will perform the error check on the Digital Signal Processing(DSP) and the Memory Circuits.
When no error is detected OK will appear.
If an error is detected it will be displayed next to DSP or Memory on the screen. Diag Error will also appear.
If Diag Error appears contact your Sony dealer!

What this means is that the camera is doing a routine check or has detected an abnormality with the system.

I hope it is just performing a routine check and there is nothing wrong with your camera!

Best of luck and let me know if this was useful!

Kind regards

Canon Power Shot SX10 IS - I've had camera for about 4 months. As of a week ago, I can only use small view finder for taking photos; the 2.5 screen for viewing does not work now. Able to view photos...


You can reset the camera to factory settings. If after that, you still have the same problem, make valid the Canon warranty since it's 4 months old.

Canon powershot sd400. power up, camera functions work, but in picture taking mode, my screen (view finder is black). also in videw mode. viewing previous pictures is ok. battery is fully charged.


There is usually a button for turning the screen on and off, or only on for previewing (browsing images). (and sometimes there is an option for having the screen on without the On-Screen Display)

I don't know exactly which one on your camera... sometimes the up button, sometimes there is a little symbol.

Play with it, and eventually you'll find the right button. =-]
