Found this on another web site. Worked for me
Turn the camera on in shooting mode.
Turn the mode selector to shutter priority (“Tv”).
Use the four-way button on the back to set the shutter speed to 15 seconds.
Press the shutter release. Count to seven, then pop open the battery compartment. (I discovered that the camera will beep when you do this.)
Wait several seconds, then close the battery compartment.
You may need to repeat the above sequence several times to unstick the iris. If that does not accomplish it, you will likely have to send the camera in for repair.

Testimonial: "Great suggestion was close to sending the camera in. I actually put it on "AUTO" and freed the IRIS. Thanks again! Great Help"

I don't know how to use the lcd screen when taking pictures


Many cameras that have view finders do not support use of the LCD display to compose or frame a picture. This is generally to conserve battery life of the camera. Most of these cameras limit how long a picture is displayed on the screen to 10 or 15 seconds, immediately after taking for the very same reason.

The exception would be a camera that lacks a view finder - or has a menu item that allows the user to compose the picture on the LCD in addition to the viewfinder. Some manufacturers call this "live view". Check your camera manual to see if it is supported. If so, be sure to buy extra batteries!

I hope this helps & good luck!

Hello, MY Camera (s2950 just out of no where wont show pictutre. i turn it on and its a blank screen... I dont know what to do, they told me to send it in, but i cant afford shipping and if its easy enough...


Check if there is anything displayed on the EVF (electronic view finder) instead of on the LCD (screen). If you see an image there, hit the EVF/LCD button to switch to the LCD screen view.

My sx10is will not turn on the LCD screen when taking pictures, it will when reviewing them. I think I did something to screw this up, help appreciated>


Close the LCD. Turn the camera off and then on. Look thorough the view finder and press the disp button to cycle through menus until it comes back to picture view. Open the LCD. If it doesn't show picture view, Press the disp button next to the menu button.

SCREEN AND VIEW FINDER BLANK


Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.

LCD not working


There's a good possibilty that your mode switch is broken. Same thing happened to my Z6. I was able to source replacement switches, and can replace them.

LCD Screen does not work properly


Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.
