Viewing screen stays black when powered on, but still takes pictures, just can't see what i'm taking


annoying isn't it, but it can be fixed quite simply by repair technicians. Cost is not absurd and well worth fixing it - Camera repair quote here.
This is a good and handy camera.
If you are to attempt this repair yourself, beware of several bands that hold different parts of the internal portion together. Only attempt with proper tools and make sure to wear an armband to avoid static electricity zapping the camera.

  1. Ensure the camera is turned on.
  2. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures.
  3. Ensure the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. NOTE: Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon [FIG. 1]. This button could be a standalone button or incorporated as one of the control arrow buttons depending on the model of camera.
  4. If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged.
  5. Ensure the battery is inserted properly in the camera.
  6. If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet.
  7. Ensure no Audio/Video (A/V) cables are connected for viewing pictures on a TV; the LCD screen will not display when an A/V cable is connected.
  8. Perform a reset procedure on the camera.
The troubleshooting steps listed above should resolve your issue. If you have completed all of the steps and the issue is not resolved, service may be required. The Sony Service Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

Try to reset the camera to original settings:
How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.

It only shows a black screen


I was having the black screen problem intermittently (of course when you really want to take a picture quickly). I downloaded v1.1 of the firmware from olympus (via the Olympus Master 2 program) and the black screen problem has not reoccurred yet. Hasn't been tested over a long period of time yet, but that seemed to fix it.

Help! model DSC-W80


The problem with your camera is part of the lens but it not the shutter. It is the CCD it is on the back of the lens if you are inside turn off the flash and in a office light setting try taking a picture to see if you get any type of image. if you do than that confirms it is the ccd. the CCD is what convert the light to data to send the image to memory. if it is too bright and it is defective then you might eather get a white or black screen. Repairs for it can range 85.00 plus shipping and up. let me know if you need anything else hope this helps.
