Question about Kodak EasyShare CX7330 Digital Camera

Kodak CX7330. turns on but LCD screen is black and won't take a pic

My camera was working great, then it just would act like it took a pic but nothing would be there to review. The LCD screen would be black. Batteries are good. This problem is intermittent. Sometimes if you just turn the camera upside down a couple of times, it starts working right. This problem seems to be getting more frequent. Any ideas? Thanks Donna

    I have the exact same problem! I have pictures on the camera that I took awhile ago and I can view them and the menu-- but as soon as I put it on auto and try to take a picture everything looks like it's working except the screen is black (as if I was taking a picture in a black room - all the little icons are still on the screen) and then when I actually take a picture it is just a black picture. This has happened once before and I don't know how it fixed itself but now it's seems that I it's stuck like this. Help!

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.

It sounds like a bad connection on the ribbon cable of the LCD screen to the camera's motherboard. The fact that when you physically move the camera around and you can get the screen to then work, tells me something is loose inside.

Good luck!

    This would depend on how confident you feel about doing it. Do you know someone who might be good at doing this?



    It's not that difficult but then again I have been been working in electronics for 24 years.



    Can you download the pictures ok to your PC even though the screen is black? It still sounds like a bad connection on the LCD display.



    I have replaced the entire screens in Kodak camera a couple times. The cost of the screen is $31 + shipping. Kodak wanted over $80 to repair it.



    It's a decision only you can make. Is it still under warranty? If so, then I would consider sending it in for repair.

When taking pics with my kodak c913 the lcd screen is black and you can not see what you are taing pic of. It all works. When taking a pic the flash will even work. when reviewing the pics it is still...


If you can check previous pics and menu settings there, isn't a problem with the LCD screenviewer; sound like a problem with the CCD Image Sensor problem.

Check the link and keep us updated.

Nothing or black screen shows up when pic is taken


The problem is with the software in the camera! So take your camera to the nearby service center and do a format of your camera! That will fix your problem. Also check whether there is any problem in ur LCD screen!

Hi!
Have you tried pushing the DISP button while taking pictures? It's on the right from the LCD.
