Your camera is going to have a sensor that lets it know if the image cap is on or not, its possible the sensor might be damaged, or pressed in, or stuck.

Cant see image in lens


Perhaps change your camera settings to the still image mode. It is the icon that looks like a camera you might have your setting on the playback mode

Cannot record due to a black screen


OK, that means you can see clear picture in playback of old recorded tapes and camcorder just wont give you live view to record any more.
If its true then it is known problem/ failure of ccd imager in your JVC GR-D33 camcorder.
JVC will repair it free of cost, click JVC CCD Imager Advisory for details.
Thanks.

Turns out my husband must have pressed a button by accident. The bottom left button says "disp" for display. Pressing that fixed the screen!

Nikon D90 Image playback Mode


Hi - My D80 allows the length of time the the image displays to be set using the menu system. You shouldn't have any trouble setting this. Mine can be set from 5 sec to 10 minutes. Lookup Monitor-Off in your manual.

Cannot locate Playback mode for Polaroid i1035 Didital Camera


It may have something to do with your camera running on auto, internal, or sd option for your memory storage.

When you get to your black screen, try pressing the "w" in your zoom to see if you have taken any pictures. You did find the playback mode...so congradulations.

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)

Black screen


Hey evafrech,
If when you turn the camera on the lcd screen is black could be do to an incompatible image has been selected as your start up image in camera settings. If this is the case you need to change your start up image. As far as your images coming out black make sure you are in shooting mode and not playback, and make sure the flash is working and that you are not too far from your subject. If none of this works I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. Most retailers have a return/exchange period, and as long as you are still within that period you could just exchange it for a new one.

Sincerely,
Allan
