You need a new screen or a new tape led in your camera if you know how to take apart camera do not take apart with out soldeirng iron or soldering equipment and proper wire and wire strippers, and if you have tiny fingers you can do it, start by unscrewing the screws carefully placing them in acontainer and remocing he screen by removing screws very carefully as not to seperate the wires, and order a new screen from a camera shop or the company you bought the camera from.

SOURCE: Very, very dark (almost black) lcd screen, but is functional

The LCD viewer is made up of the LCD screen, and the backlight. Your backlight is burnt out, or the circuit board isn't sending power to it. Backlights can be replaced separately.

SOURCE: lcd screen is completely black

i think this is generally the symptom when there is a problem with either the CMOS or the CMOS circuit not able to collect the image, if its worth it you might want to change it but normally it would cost almost as much as the camera

hope could be of help

I have 2 remotes and one box. I can not get the second remote to work ..it will only let me watch what is on tv1. I have it set to dual viewing. My tv1 remote works sometimes I think it is inferring with...


pkermer,

It sounds like the receiver is in single mode (you said it was in dual mode) or shared viewing. With shared viewing disabled, you will not get a picture on TV 2, only TV 1. If you are not getting a picture (black screen) on TV 2, you should change the setting for Shared View on your receiver.

Make sure your receiver is in Single mode by pressing the Mode button on your receiver (should have only the green light lit on the front of the receiver and the single mode amber light). Press the Menu button on your remote to display the Main Menu on your TV 1. Press 6 (System Setup) and 2 (Shared View). Move the cursor to Enable Shared Viewing. Press Select on your remote (Enable View should have purple dot). Then press Done. Exit out of the other screens till you have a picture on your TV 1 screen. Make sure the receiver is in dual mode and then check to make sure you have a picture on TV 2.

If you have any more problems or questions, please let us know.

Canon eos rebel xsi screen is black when taking a picture but shows picture afterwards..Menu works also so screen works but just black when trying to take a pic..


Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.

Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.

My Pioneer 55 inch screen tv SD-P5553 has a solid black horizonta


This sounds like a picture mode issue. You maybe in a ZOOM mode. Try adjusting your set to FULL mode. If you are using a Sat receiver or cable box, some of these may have picture viewing mode as well, wich may need to be set in FULL or NORMAL viewing mode.

Good Luck!

4.14.1 Understanding Viewing Features
Your LCD HDTV features four viewing modes and Picture-In-Picture (PIP)/Picture-by-Picture (POP) mode.
You can switch viewing modes using the remote control.
4.14.2 Viewing Modes
Normal Mode
The original 4:3 aspect ratio (1.33:1 source) is preserved, so black bars are
added to the left and right of the display image. Standard TV broadcasts are
displayed with a 4:3 Aspect Ratio. Movies in 4:3 Aspect Ratio may be referred
to as pan-and-scan or full frame. These movies were originally filmed in 16:9
(widescreen), and then modified to fit a traditional TV screen (4:3).
Wide Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full-frame movie in this mode,
the display image is stretched proportionately to fill the TV screen.
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1 source) program or movie, the
display image fills the TV screen. If you are watching a widescreen
(1.85:1 or 2.35:1 source) program or movie, there will still be black
bars at the top and bottom.
Zoom Mode
When watching a widescreen (1.78:1, 1.85:1, or 2.35:1 source)
program or movie, the display image is zoomed proportionally to fill the
width of the screen. The top and bottom are cut off to remove most of
the source material’s black bars. This mode is good for programs or
movies with sub-titles.
Panoramic Mode
When watching a standard broadcast or full frame movie in this mode,
the 4:3 Aspect Ratio (1.33:1 source) display image is stretched
horizontally on the left and right sides to fill the TV screen. The center
of the image is not stretched.

Note: Viewing modes are saved based on input. For example, you lasted watched a DVD in widescreen
mode and then watched TV in standard mode. When you switch back to DVD input, the viewing mode
will return to widescreen.

Black LCD screen/ not 'seeing' picture. Canon EOS 400D camera


Hi

The Digital Rebel XTi doesn't have 'live view' mode, you can't see what you're taking a picture of before you take the picture.

Turn on camera but the lcd sceen is black


Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.

Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.

If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
