    I hooked my Canon powershot S30 up to my computer with my USB cable to try and download my photos. My laptop has Vista so I didn't have the driver needed for the camera. I went to the Canon website and found the drivers and they said they didn't have one for Vista so I thought I would try to download the one for XP just to try it to see if it would work. Sometimes I can click on a button on Vista and tell it to run like it would with XP. Anyway, I forgot to unplug my camera during this process. By the way it didn't work. When I did take my camera off the cable the screen was completely black and all of the photos that had been on my card were erased. I could turn the camera on and get the screen saver, and I could take a picture and it still flashes and makes the shutter sound like it is taking a picture but you just get a completely black picture. It's like the shutter isn't opening. Can anyone offer any help??? I am going to FL on Thurs to see my family and I need my camera.

Problems with the samsung camera. the screen is blank black!


Sounds like the ZIF connector for the screen or another part came loose. I will say it sounds like a hardware issues and I would strongly recommend looking into coverage via manufactures parts and repair coverage. About the picture folder not showing up, If your using the camera cord to attach it to the computer Make sure you turn the camera on after connecting, if the drive for the camera does not appeare in " Computer " I would say get a card reader for the SDHC cards and try to load the pictures through there.

The hand with parenthesis is your image stabilization. It sounds like if your images are turning out black, you may need service.

Try hitting your display button a few times and see if anything shows up on the screen.

Black screen


While looking at the screen, there are 2 round buttons before you get to the "wheel" The one on the right is a red picture of a camera, the other is an arrow.

Sounds like you have the arrow button pushed... push it again and see what happens. I tried it on mine, and it went from black to live.

Kodak CX7330. turns on but LCD screen is black and won't take a pic


It sounds like a bad connection on the ribbon cable of the LCD screen to the camera's motherboard. The fact that when you physically move the camera around and you can get the screen to then work, tells me something is loose inside.

Good luck!

Whirring sound after start then black screen with E18 in bottom corner


this is very easy to fix- switch your camera on, grab then lens around the edges, and carefully give it a firm twist. It should click and turn on.
