Question about Sony Mavica MVC-CD500 Digital Camera

2 Answers

LCD Display is black when the camera is on.

I looked up this error in the manual and turned on the LCD display like they suggested. It did not work? Has anyone else experienced this or knows how to fix it?

    The mechanics seem to be working properly. The flash pops up and operates when I attempt a photograph. The LCD screen is black. The LCD screen does function properly in the "menu" mode.

Only folks...I just opened the back of the CCD by removing 5 small screws. I popped the cover, carefully. The reason I am doing this is becuase my LCd screen was not working, yet the camera still funcitioned as if the LCD was. Guess what, the flat cable that controls the LCd had come loose from use and time from under the clamp. Simple fix. Plugged the flat cable back in, and wala, back in action. This may solve some problems with the display being black. Check the connections under the cover. easy to remove. Silverwolf

Display not working on g12


The Display button toggles the information shown on the LCD (or turns it off entirely). Make sure you haven't inadvertently pressed it and turned off the display. It works as follows:

Press once for Normal view in LCD viewfinder
Press twice to turn on Rule of Thirds grid lines
Press three times to turn off LCD display
Press and hold 1 sec. to decrease/increase LCD brightness

LCD is black


On the back of the camera bottom right, are two buttons, The left of these says Display. Press that several times while watching the display. See what possibilities you have on your display.
You can switch of the display to save power. Or to suggest your camera is off. After this you also can switch it on and see more info about the pictures you took.

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 have canon sd 750. its lcd gets black. Shows pictures etc but view finder remains dark. display is zz. what to do?


Look for DISP or DISPLAY button in the lower-right corner of the back of your camera. Press this once while the camera is turned on. The DISPLAY button manually turns the screen on and off. This is to save battery power for extended use. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place.

Camera's screen is black, but still takes pictures.


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, try pressing the DISP button once with the camera turned on.

I took pictures from my nikon d40x but all photos are displayed black in lcd. Would you know how to fix this error?


If your LCD screen works normally as a viewfinder and lets you review photos then your shutter is likely stuck in the closed position. If the display is black in all modes your LCD display is bad. Unfortunately, there is no safe DIY fix for either problem. The camera will require professional repair.

Black spot in display


If the camera operates normally and the only problem is no picture is visible on the lcd in record mode and playback mode,then the lcd needs to be replaced.

Display problem


I had the same problem with my SD1000 and was so frustrated with reading all of the troubleshooting "solutions".... After a couple of days researching, I finally stumbled upon a site that actually suggested turning the unit off and "slapping" it a couple of times (on the front) and that would work. Well, I though "what the hell" and actually tried it. OMG! it actually worked!!! I'm thinking that the shutter inside just got stuck and needed a little "slap" to loosen it up. Hope this finds you all well and works for you before you go our and spend a **** load on getting you camera fixed. See ya!

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.
