When I turn the camera on the screen is black. It shows the menu display ok and it will display pictures already taken but it is not possible to take pictures as the screen is just black..


Two things there, first... could be a problem with the viewer screen, or, second choice could be a problem with the CCD sensor or go to bad; in both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Canon service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps; check it and keep us updated..

On picture taking mode, screen is black but can still take pictures


Please provide more detail about your problem.

Does the screen play back the pictures ok but not during record mode? Or is it off all the time and you used a computer to review the shots that were taken?

Check the basics listed below:

1. The screen may be switched off.
Press the display button on the back while the camera is on. This toggles the display setting between various settings such as Off/ On / Info. Keep pressing the button to try the aternate modes, it just goes round and round to 2 -3 different modes.


2, Check that the monitor brightness setting is set to medium at least in the menu's.

3. If the problem is only affecting recording then check that the main record settings are correct for the type of scene you are taking. For example don't use Beach, Snow, Candle or manual with a high shutter speed while taking regular daylight shots with minimal lighting.

. 4. If the LCD display has a hardware issue you could connect the camera to a TV using the video output jack and look at it that way. Then you'll know if the built-in LCD is ok or not.

5. Having a damaged or stuck video output jack COULD cause this problem also since that circuitry is designed to automatically shut off the built-in LCD display when you connect a video cord to it. Note that having a video cable plugged in to the video output jack would shut off the display also. Such as when you have it connected to a TV.

Screen does not display image


make the "live view"/"viewing screen" first enable by locating it in your menu or your settings. then after that you can go back from taking picture by using the viewing screen

in regards of viewing the pictures taken, press the display button. keep pressing until the viewing screen appears

Outdoor pictures give white display on screen


Go to the menus and reset to default or factory settings. Make sure that the white setting in the picture adjustments in the menus are set to zero or you may have to adjust + or - to get the normal effect again.
Test the camera by taking pictures and saving to a sd card. Then put the card in a card reader/writer which is connected to the computer. Copy the pictures or files to the computer and view them to see if they are in good shape or if there is some problem with exposure or the way it looks.
If the computer pictures show that they are good, and they are not showing good on the camera LCD, then the LCD has a problem, and is possibly either cracked or has some other display problem.
These LCD screens are not that hard to change if you are good at working with small items and screws. If you do this, make sure you have a way to remember where you got each screw, as they can vary in size and kind.

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

No picture display when taking shot. Blank pictures produced when shot taken.


Solution:
Ebay has used cameras (DX4530) for about $75.00 with shipping. Kodak's repair service for these cameras is done by mailing in the camera -- and the baseline starting price is about $140.
I'm planning to go to Ebay and buying from a seller with a good track record and reputation.

Canon A75 No startup sound & display on LCD, rest of things works fine


Think it might be your batteries. 700mah batteries are pretty weak by today's standards (most are at least 2,500 mah these days). I'm guessing your batteries are several years old? If so, they're really only meant to have a usable shelf life of a few years, whether they are used or not. Recommend trying a new set of rechargeable batteries.

CCD malfunction, common with Sony manufactured CCD chips. You are in luck, its a free repair regardless of warranty date.
