Problem with lens

Hi,

When I turn on the camara to take a picture, the screen appears black. Then the camara's little light bulb begins to flash non-stop and I cannot take any pictures. Is something wrong with the lens? And why is the screen black?

It is possible you have the display turned off... Some cameras allow you to do this to save battery.

My camera turns on and the screen remains black. All settings show up on the display screen, but you cannot see anything but black. I can snap a picture and it takes a picture of solid black. I have exhausted the battery and fully recharged. I have formated the memory card and tried to restore all original settings to default. I have no idea what else to do. Can you help?

Camera opens normally, only takes black pictures


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

I have a Nikon D50 black image on bottom of screen what is causing this problesm


If you are using the built-in flash and a telephoto lens, the end of the lens can block some of the light from the flash and that appears as a slightly rounded black "hump" at the bottom of your picture.

Kodak camera shows me a blank/black screen


You have a bad CCD imager. Find a repair shop that can strip a CCD from a camera with a bad lens. This is the least costly repair.

Canon Powershot SI screen goes black after taking a photo


That sounds like a sticky lens shutter. They usually have to be replaced, as they usually will need parts. When the camera is working look inside the lens and take a picture(with flash turned off). You should see a black shutter door clicking shut in the lens. When the camera acts up, look inside the lens again. If the door is staying shut full time, that is your problem.

Canon digial camara, have picture is black


Black picture = faulty lens shutter. If lens shutter is always in closed position, no light can enter the camera lens. Replace camera lens part.
