Are the pictures it takes also black? If so, this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

My Canon EOS Rebel T2i EF-S 18-55 IS Kit 18MP Digital SLR 4462B003 USA Model will not come on. What is the possible problem?


It's probably coming on but the button has been pushed to activate the viewfinder so all information gose there and the LCD screen remains black OR because this camera has an interesting feature just under the viewfinder that scenes the photographer looking into the viewfinder automatically shuts off the rear LCD screen. If this sensor is blacked then the LCD screen will not come on.

The screen on my olympus u tough-6010 is always black, i can take photos, and turn it on but cant see the screen. PLEASE HELP ! i really enjoy using this camera underwater. i use it carefully, but before...


If the photographs that are taken can be downloaded and viewed on the PC , then the fault is with the LCD screen, If there is a possibility that water has seeped into the LCD and damaged or the LCD is faulty .
To remove will require good care as there is heavy sealing and must be done professionally. take estimate from an Olympus store or use as it is assuming the picture with experience.

I have a powershot A480 just over 1 year old. It has worked fine for me until now when the screen is totally black when switched on? Any suggestions?


If the rest of the camera is working and you can still take photographs, the cause is a bad LCD screen and will need replacement. If however the camera come on and does nothing else, It is a systems control board failure, which is the brains and controls vital areas of the camera, repairs at this point would not be cost effective, "cheaper to replace" If the screen is the only issue it is worth looking into with an estimate in mind.

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder,...


I had a A70 that would still take pictures, but the screen did not show a picture. I did some research and found that this is somewhat a common problems with some of the Canon Powershots to include the A70 where the LCD screens expire. I believe that if the camera gets too hot, such as being left in a vehicle the LCD seperates. I sent my camera to Canon and they fixed it for free. It took about 4-6 weeks to receive my camera back, and now it works perfectly. They did a great job on communicating with me, and fixing the issue. I think that alone is worth buying a Canon. The link below should help you.

Not able to copy the photographs from the meory card but able to see the sam in the Camera LCD screen


the problem may be that you have "locked" your memory, there is a little switch on the memory card you pull it up or down, up for lock, down for unlocking..  or the problem might be with your card reader..

Screen is white and doesn't display area being photographed. Can take pictures.


From camerahacker.com:
1. Hold camera firmly in left hand.
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.
Worked for me :)
