Repair of digital camera

Hi
When looking through the camera to take a picture it is virtually all black - it flickers a bit and the camera tries to focusĀ  but all you see is darkness. In very bright light it goes slightly lighter but is still dark.

it will take pictures but they come out black

It did this a few weeks back - i then took all the pictures off the card and it worked - but then did the above again. I have again taken all the pictures off but it is still black this time

Any ideas?

    CCD Sensor failure....



    Yesterday the camera was fine, today the viewfinder and LCD are black in picture mode except for battery indicator and frame counter and exposure information.



    The camera works fine in menu mode and in playback mode from a CF card that has some earlier pictures on.



    Regretably I've seen this before with my Fuji S2 pro ( based on a Nikon body and a similar Sony CCD sensor). It is the well-documented 5700 sensor failure ( just Google for Nikon 5700 CCD failure).



    It is too expensive to have fixed, since it is well out of warranty. Some time ago Nikon were fixing the camera for free in the USA, but not in the UK.



    The camera is effectively scrap. It would cost more to have it fixed than it is worth.



    Lets hope my 8700 has a different sensor!

Go to Nikons home page and look for coolpix5700 service advisory. Download the pdf and send it in with the camera and they will fix it for free. I got mine back in 2 weeks completely fixed no charge. Do not write what your problems are. They will do a thorough check and fix everything.

I find it hard to believe. Once the camera ist sold and they got new models on the shelves, humpf, they wont care about it anymore. Even support for old espensive cameras. This is not a Rolls Royce, better try another brand, better covered.

If you see all black in the viewfinder something bad has happened to the lens. It could be stuck, tilted, etc.

It will need to be taken apart and serviced by a trained technician.

Hello i have a problem with my canon powershot A1000Is digital camera. When i open the cam it only shows black screen and when i`m trying to take a picture is also black even if i check it on the computer...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

But if you do notice shutter movement, then this would then likely be a CCD imager failure. It would in that case require Canon service to repair (1-800-OK-CANON). Unfortunately if this is the case, believe that you may find that the estimated cost of repair may exceed the current value of the camera.

Screen is black....will not display whats being taken a picture of nor is taking pictures.


Am assuming that you've already tried pressing the DISP button on the back of your camera. Is it not taking pictures, or are the pictures it is taking also black like the LCD? If black pictures, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

Screen is black on playback & picture mode


Have you tried taking pictures when the screen is black? Do the pictures also come out black? If so, try putting it in any mode other than auto and turning off the flash (don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the front of the lens and take a picture. You should see a little flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If you see this flicker, and you're still getting black pictures, then you likely have again encountered failure of the CCD. Canon will fix this again for you for free. See the following:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/canon-digital-cameras-showing-black.html
But if no flicker or movement is seen down the center of the lens when you took the picture, then you likely have a stuck shutter. Canon will not fix this for free. But no matter, there are a couple simple fixes for this that don't require opening the camera: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

It sounds like your CCD image sensor is bad. Canon has issued a world wide technical notice regarding this, and will repair it at no cost if this is determined to be the problem, regardless of warranty.
