I have the PS S500. It will not take pictures now, it flashes, but there is nothing on the playback. In fact, when I look at the image before taking a pic, there is nothing there. Sort of like there is...


is the screen displaying anything at all? if not have you tried looking into the viewfinder? occasionally cameras with viewfinders will display pictures on in the viewfinder and not the screen.
Try taking a photo and then check to see if the photo is there on a computer.
other than this, the camera unit inside the camera may have become damaged or detached, it this is the case, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do

When i take a picture the secrin is black plz


if the picture is being recorded and only the play backscreen is not working then you will have to have the playback screen or associated electronics repaired. If the camera is not even taking pictures or playing back then the camera is broken beyond economical repair. Canon will charge about $125 for a rear screen repair and about $150 or more for a sensor repair. New models better than the one you have start at $299.

Sony Cybershot DSC-S500 bad photo resolution problem


Electronic shutter in lens mechanism got bad and you need to replace complete lens assembly of DSC-S500 camera.
Of course new lens assembly would cost more then camera worth so best option is to buy new camera.

No picture on screen after 1 second


Try this. Go to your tools menu, look for something like power saver or display off and change the duration that the screen stays on.

If that is the case, you need to turn off your flash when
taking outdoor pictures because it seems that the pictures are overexposed.

Try to avoid the sun when taking pictures outside.

But you could try the steps below:

POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Return batteries
- Turn on camera

MASTER RESET
- Turn on camera
- Press MENU button
- Scroll to the right until you see SETUP
- Scroll down and look for RESET
- Press right button so you could see YES or NO
- Select YES
- Press MENU button
- Turn off camera for a few seconds so that
settings will be refreshed

* If it still does not work, call the Manufacturer so they
could tell you how to send camera for repair.

you camera shutter is stuck at close position, you will need to open
the thing up to repair.

As for the totally dark screen, either your LCD or driver board is bad. You will need to open and replace the broken part.

Camera screen dark


It sounds like you broke the backlight on the display. I would contact Casio to find a repair center.
