    Same problem as others. Worked great until last Friday and suddenly got a black screen with a replace battery pack message. I could view the photos on my card and they looked ok, but cannot get it to take any photos. Several seconds after the replace battery pack message the camera turns off.

My monotor its all black but u can


This should be an (LCD) screen. They are the ones that usually have this kind of problem. You will need to take it to have it checked if the problem is the VGA signal cable leading to the monitor. They will check if it is properly connected or has gone bad. It is very unlikely that the screen is bad. When this VGA signal cable goes bad it could result in a totally blank screen.

Black block fills screen


Turn off the closed-captioning. It's set for "text" and the TV is blanking out the screen where the text would go if there was any. There's probably a single button on your remote to control captions, and it got pressed and put the set into text mode. Just press that button until the TV says "off" or use the TV's on-screen menu.
