I have sony v1, unfortunately it was dropped, now the problem arises that you can see previous stored pics in lcd but when you want to capture the image, nothing is displayed and if you take the picture it...


Based on the information you've provided it seems that the CCD Image Sensor of the Camera is affected which displays the live view of the Camera and the image which get captured. If the Image Sensor is affected, the previous views of the images and the icons will get displayed as normally, but the live view and the captured images will be distorted or blacked out. You may try power resetting to check if the issue can be resolved.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

This problem is only related with back light in lcd screen and has nothing to do with ccd imager chip as explained by previous expert.
LCD screen is not getting enough voltage to lit back light to show its image thus you get darker image.
I suspect back light circuit section at main board got physical damage due to drop of camera. Visual check by qualified camera tech is needed to fix it.

Black screen

The issue is likely a bad lens assembly. Consumers wishing to repair this can check ebay for a replacement lens assembly, motor and sensor are usually included.

This happened to my Samsung s700 while I was mucking with it recently. It can happen when the lens meets severe resistance while trying to open, thus damaging the lens. The camera turns on and cannot tell precisely where the lens is, and subsequently the camera leaves the CCD imaging sensor turned off.

Replacement is easier than repair as lots of intricate parts are involved. However, the centermost ring will pop off with a little force, revealing four screws. The screws on the back side of the lens assembly are pretty obvious. Best of luck to anyone trying to fix this rather than replace it...

D80 with nikkor 18-200, no picture

raatl, You mean the LCD on the back of the camera right?  The image that shows up (playback) can have the duration changed in the menu settings, it may have been turned off which is a choice as well that mode (not having the LCD on) extends shooting time which used to be a problem with the earl D70 and the earlier battery type.  The D80 doesn't have that issue, try experimenting with how much time you really need to have the display on, if you shoot and like to show the image to people set it longer or just hit the playback a couple of times as you are showing people.

Black screen on camcorder

I think you have two different issues here. The black screen may be due to a CCD failure. Canon has a worldwide service notice regarding this issue, and will repair your unit at no cost if they determine this is the problem (it sounds like it is).

The little red symbol indicates your backup battery (or date/time battery) CR1616 needs to be replaced. It is located behind a small square panel which you can see to the left of the menu buttons when you open the LCD panel.

Pictures no longer show up, only partyl horizontal lines

It is the CCD and it is a defect, no fix that is economically feasible unless you get a parts cam of Ebay and make one good one. Too bad Sony will not fess up to this model as they have with some other "newer" models like the F717 as it has really put a cloud over the post consumer digital camera market.

Black Screen; Change Battery Message

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Take a picture and see if it is also black. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500

The little 3 volt button battery is the clock battery for the camera. It keeps track of date and time.
