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.

Re: Black Screen

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.

When I turn on my Kodak EasyShare M1033 the screen is black.

"My sister thinks it's probably because I dropped it to much (which I do)"

"I even smacked it a couple of times."

Simple NEVER buy another camera again!

Casio Exilim EX-S500 screen is black when turned on

you camera shutter is stuck at close position, you will need to open
the thing up to repair.


As for the totally dark screen, either your LCD or driver board is bad. You will need to open and replace the broken part.

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.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem

No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
