    I'm having the same problem. LCD screen is black. I can see the menu on the screen, but not the subject. I thought it may be the battery, but the problem remained after the camera was fully charged. Please help.

    My Nikon coolpix 5700 shows nothing through the viewfinder or the LCD screen. You can see the menues fine and they appear to function. You can snap a picure and hear the shutter - but no picture.

    I have the same problem on a Nikon Coolpix 5700. The LCD is ok and displays the menu and pictures from the compact flash card but when I try to take pics the screen is black just the same as the other users described.

    Kind Regards,

    I have the same "black screen" problem with my Coolpix 5700 camera. The battery is fully charged, but I tried reinserting it along with the SD card. I can view the pictures on the card, see the menu, and the display shows up along the bottom of the LCD screen, but the screen itself remains black. The viewfinder is also black when you switch to it.

Ive opened the canon powershot 1s IS. id had the problem that the LCD stated black from the beginning.

i opened the lens(is that an english word for all the glasses???) and i saw what the problem was.

to take a picture, a very small (valve??) opens and closes very fast. this valve? was sticked together by something like glue. i removed the glue(smaller than one piece of sand) and the camera works fine.

i'm sorry for my bad english, but i'm dutch.

its easy and done whitin 2 hours.

Series or type of kodak C643 LCD

the C643 camera can have either type LCD screen. The only way to know for sure as far as I know is to disassemble camera and look. LCD screens are available on ebay for about 20 dollars. the thing to be careful of is make sure the selector knob is in off position when opening case up. there is a front and rear and the rear is the tricky one on account of usb cable port. be careful

Kodak C643 Screen black

One way out of the glare is to use the optical viewfinder (if your camera has one) to preview your image instead of the LCD. Another possibility is to buy a camera that has a backlit LCD.

Kodak C643 black LCD

it is likely the Iris is stuck closed , maybe due to humidity.or the actuator that opens it is kaput.
it will have to be totally dissembled to get to the iris.
if you look into the lens and see the iris leafs you can verify that they stay closed.

White screen on kodak C643 easy share digital camera

This sounds like either a broken LCD screen (they don't have to display the liquid in the display to be broken) or a cable that has partially been disabled.

You can try to open the case and reseat the LCD cable and try that.
