Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Black Screen The camara was working fine a couple days ago, but now when i turn the camara on, the lcd screen is black. I can't see anything, hence I can't take pictures. Also, when i take a picture (although screen is black and i can;t actually see what i'm shooting), the picture review shows my past photos in perfect color except for my "test shot". Any suggestions? Thanx.

I have the same problem. Thanks T00nz for the information. I will soon received the mailing label from Sony. They charged $15 for shipping yet it is very reasonable and worth it compare to the cost for fixing it.

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.

I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.

Samsungs850 no pic in view finder

This is new. I see that according to the illustration, there is no Optical Viewfinder- thus you need the the screen to compose the images - Is this correct? As this camera is new to you carefully read up the instruction manual - especially the set up routine. If after a day or so you are still in trouble - take it back to the store for replacement. Do not interfere with the camera.
