This is a common problem with this camera that was a recall by Canon after it came out. You would be past the recall period. Your camera has a bad CCD.

I have a nikon d5100, when I take a picture the live view screen is black. I can view the pictures saved on my memory card but not the pictures currently taken! How can I fix this problem?


The normal mode for this camera, as it has been for SLRs for half a century, is to use the viewfinder to compose your pictures. If you want to use the Live View feature, you need to activate it by rotating the Live View switch beside the mode dial. Full details are in the "Live View" section of the manual (begins on page 99 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from

All pictures taken are just Blackness


is there a view finder on this camera? often when there is a screen and a viewfinder there is a button to toggle between them, my sony camera has such a button although it is not a cybershot. i imagine the button says "dis" or "LCD" and just needs to be toggled. if the display were bad you would not be able to view pictures on it. display works must be configuration issue.

KODAK eASYSHARE c530 BLACK SCREEN DOES NOT TAKE PICTURE


You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

LCD SCREEN


LCD = Lousy Camera Device? Get used to using the optical viewfinder. The LCD is great for reviewing images after you've taken them, but it leaves a lot to be desired as a viewfinder. Keeping your camera steady is no small feat at the best of times, but being forced to hold the camera away from your body to view an image through the LCD adds a new level of instability to the picture-taking process.

Black viewfinder and screen


Most likely it is a mechanical failure such that the reflection mirror does not return back to its normal position, then blocking any light to the viewfinder.

Check this by unmounting the lens. If so, you may have to consider a repair operation.
