Is the mirror stuck up? Lots of these ZX Pentax models have failure of the mirror motors when the plastic gear on the shaft of the motor cracks and then the motor just runs continously

The mirror in the lens throat has locked in the up position. Mirror lockup can usually be cured by replacing the batteries.

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.

I cannot see anything, just blackness... i have removed the lens-cap and put in the eye-piece as well as the front dust cap but all i see is black, also the red finder is not helping me aim.


Use the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. You must adjust the red dot finder to MATCH the view in the main tube.

Point the scope at a distant telephone pole, and without moving the main tube adjust the red dot so it lands on the exact same spot. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Lens cap is off battery is fully charged it will


possible ccd issue.screen indicators for sure is ok, and viewfinder would show same black screen.this model is included in a recall by sony because of a defect in the ccd imaging sensor years back.but sad to say the program (and even the extension for it) is no longer available for all affected camcorder models. now it only includes the dsct1 and dscf717 dig cams.i.m sorry this unit would need replacement of the ccd imaging sensor.hope this info helps.thanks.

I have lost manual Camera has battery but I only see black nothing when I look through the lens


If you cannot see anything looking through the view finder, that is either a lens problem, a defective view finder, or a faulty sensor.

For any of this faults you need a technician to fix the camera, call the Canon customer support number printed on camera documentation.

Try also removing the batteries and replacing with fresh ones, to exclude battery problem and to reset the camera, if there is really a fault this will not work, but you have to try.

Regarding the manual, you can download below.

In camera mode if you look through the lens and have a black picture with the message lens cap on and you see that the iris is opening up and there are no bad connections to the ccd then the imager is suspect. Your snowy playback picture problem may just require a clearing however.

at the back of the camera next to the view finder (bottom right hand corner) is a button and icon marked SEL. pressing this button toggles the lens image from the view finder to the lcd screen and back again. IF neither view is available then I suspect your camera needs some TLC at a repair shop. hope this helps.
