I downloading my pictures to my pc. I went back to view them on camera and now some photos says picture error. it is a black screen and an orange exclamation point. please advise

once you have moved all the pictures to your computer make sure to disconnect your camera. no need to keep going back and forth.
on your camera try turning it off, pulling the battery out for a couple of minutes. insert battery. turn on. wait until it is fully on, navigate to view pictures.
if black screen is still present you might have zapped your camera while connecting and disconnecting the wire to the computer repeatedly.
repair is available

Black screen when trying to take a picture and photos come up black.

The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $47.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Canon A620 No Picture

First try hitting the DISP button (sorry if this offends, but many people have made this mistake). If this doesn't help, next try resetting the camera. Turn on the camera, and hold the menu button for at least five seconds. Believe reset is also in the menus.

If the above doesn't help, then unfortunately this sounds like your CCD image sensor may have failed. This would then require professional repair. Contact Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON.

LCD Screen does not work properly

Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.

CCD sensor is outputting noise and has to be replaced. Sony should repair free of charge even if your camera is out of guarantee.
