    I've had my camera for some time now (worked fine) then it stopped working altogether (fixed my removing Microsoft Silverlight which Microsoft Update had installed) ... now this ... exactly the same problem - black screen saying "No Signal !!" in top left hand corner. Please help

    Same problem, after 2 years w/ DCS 5300G now it says No Signal on screen, no changes and no idea why.

    Same deal here, all of a sudden it says "No Signal" after working fine for 2 years. Tried resetting it to factory defaults, etc. but nothing seems to work. Everything else works fine (networking, internal web server, etc.), just getting the "Black Screen of Death" like everyone else.

I have 7 DCS5300G and 1 of them got the blackscreen, since DLINK has no support at all I decided to gut the camera myself and learn a thing or two... what I found is that there is a small "capacitor" next to the lens' control board, and it was burnt... I
went to an electronic parts store and got a similar one and got it
to work again... I bet your problem is that same one...

    Infyrana can you tell me which capacitor needs replacing? If you know the part number etc. that would be really helpful. Thanks in advance.

I have the same problem and D-Link's service department suggested me to send it back for hardware checking. I will send it back and hope they can solve this problem.

Screen is white when on.....

Try disconnecting your connection to your computer.
If you see a no signal message with a dark background, you have problems with your video card.
If you continue to recv. the white screen, you have input signal problems with the LCD monitor itself.

If you do recv. a no signal message witha dark background, try removing and reseating the video card.

This may sound a bit dumb, but believe me as a tech support specialist, I have seen it happen. If you are trying to print a document, what color do you have set for text? I had a lady who wanted the text to be white on blue on the screen in Word and instead of setting it with a blue background and "auto" text, she set the text as white. White print on a white background (paper) doesn't show up...:-)

Screen background colour

Its an LCD problem. if you have the means to take the phone apart, carefully remove the LCD assembly and clean its contacts and the circuit board pads. If its still the same, only a replacement can solve it.
