Usually you would press the Display button to turn the LCD on, on with options, or off. I leave it off when taking pictures to save on battery life, though it does display each picture for several seconds after it is taken.

LCD Display is Black


the image in the LCD monitor will darken in strong sunlight or bright light. This is normal occurrrence in device CCDs and does not contitute a malfunction. This image will not be recoded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded wihen shooting movies.Read you owner manual and adjust the MENU, according with your o. manual.Otherwise you must go the repair shop
God bless you

I was just using my point and shoot S550 when all of a sudden, the photos I am taking produce a blank white screen with some colored vertical lines in parts of the photos. It was working fine a second ago....


I'm having the same problem. The first foto looks alright but the rest is as above. I do'nt have a sollution but i had removed the battery and the memory card and left the camera open in the hope it will be a damp issue. just now i take some new foto's and i still got the stripes but i have a picture. Hope some one will have the right sollution.

Lcd is totally black, when taking pics nothing is captured but black


Most cases you looking at repair here.

What it sounds like is you got a bad CCD inside the camera. This would cause black images or no output. now if the fotos that are saved are normal and are not black then the best case would be just a lcd issue.

From what it sounds like you indeed have a issue with the CCD. The repair on that can be pretty expensive, You might want to consider purchasing a new camera at this point if that is the case.


Thanks and we do hope this was helpful.

Problem with canon a420 digicam


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Note that your camera will not be able to take 15 second exposures, as per the above "fix". Instead, place the camera in manual mode, turn off the flash, and take the exposures in a darkened room. This should give you a couple seconds, just enough time to open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are flashing.

Black screen on a 20ls7d LCD TV


I work at CNN Have had 6 of these monitors go out in as many months. Take out the power supply and change the 2 exploded 680u capacitors. They're being overheated by the underrated MOSFETs on the reverse side of the board. I'm looking for some substitute MOSFETs that handle power better; but replacing the caps will usually fix the problem. Otherwise replace the supply.

Fotos are white


Try the video. Is it ok?
Adjust the zoom so the internal lens is up close to the outside lens. Now, look into the lens at an angle so you can see into the lens without reflection. With the flash "off" so as not to blind you take a picture and watch the shutter close over the lens. Did it cover the lens? If not then something is obstructing it or there is an electrical failure with the electro magnetic switch operating the shutter.
