Can't see through lens, dropped camera

My daughter dropped her camera. It reviews previously taken pictures fine on the lcd screen, but it will not view through the lens to take new pictures. I can faintly see images if I look closely, but they do not take where you can see them.

I dropped my daughters Nikon d3000 and now all pictures taken are coming out with just stripes. Does anyone know if this is the camera or the lense

This is a camera problem. Are the stripes just on the screen or are they actually on the pictures when you download them to a computer or try to print them? If just on the screen, the screen may be cracked or the ribbon cable connecting the screen to the motherboard may be dislodged. Can you review previous (before the fall) pictures and can you see the menu items without stripes?...If so, then the screen is ok and the problem is deeper inside the camera.

I have a d80.problem: lcd will not show anything. lcd will show previous taken pictures

Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button?
The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.

Its a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. all on a sudden, LCD is not working. Monitors remains dark when I press 'On' button and the photo taken are also dark. However old photos on the SD card I can in the screen...


If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

Dark Screen

Your lens can not open the shutter, or CCD is dead. If you kept your camera in your pocket, most likely fine dust got in the lens and ultimetly between the shutter blades and now due to friction they can't open. But if you kept your camera clean, then it is dead CCD. You can have it fixed by replacing the CCD or the entire lens, but in particular this SD1000 camera the main board components can go wrong too. You can sell it "as is" on ebay for $50-70 and buy a working one for 80-90, the difference would be $20-30.

Cannot take pictures thru lcd screen on d40x DSLR

The D40x is not capable of Liveview - i.e. looking at the LCD to take a picture. You are mistaken.
If you want Liveview, you need to buy the D3 or D300 cameras. The D40x is an entry-level camera.

LCD montior not on to see picture before taking picture

On the EVOLT E-300 it is not a camera that has a live view LCD screen that will allow you to see the image before it is taken. You must take the image with viewfinder only and only use the LCD screen for review purposes. This is how the camera was designed.
