Can I view the photos on my SD card on the camera and not use USB cord, or do I have to put SD card in computer?


Yes, most cameras allow you to view pictures on the camera! Obviously viewing on a PC screen would be clearer because of the screen size compared with the smaller camera screen!

Blurred screen and photo


"...even though the screen is clear"...?

The screen is a tiny view of the picture and you cannot see all the details of the shot that way. The only way to be sure is to zoom in on the details when viewing the photo on the screen.

Black screen when camara is in photo mode


anyone else had this? or know what to do. whatever best you can do is to take the camera to a good repairer as you can't fix the problem by yourself. there may be two possible reasons for the problem. 1) bad image sensor i.e. damaged CCD or 2)shutter blade are not working. the shutter blades may be jammed due to friction are no signal.
