Most likely the shutter is jammed shut - this is commonly due to heat causing the oils in the lens to evaporate and then condense on the shutter blades.
The camera will need to be serviced, and this oild cleaned off the blades. Well worth doing, as these are great cameras :)

Screen is black . camera flashes no photo , trash bin appears


Could be a problem with the LCD display... it is defective. If you turn the unit on, and nothing is displayed in the LCD, not even a menu can be displayed and the > play button does nothing to show your pictures... then it is broken.

How long do I have after the lamp replacement warning comes up before I have to replace the lamp?


You can use the Lamp even if the TV displays the message to replace the lamp. However, the performance of the TV, i.e the picture may become dark, entire screen may display in black after some time. If you can view the videos normally even after displaying the message, you may continue using it.
Thanks for understanding.

Display screen is not showing up


There is a setting which controls how long the picture you have just taken will be displayed on the screen. Maybe adjusting this will help? I hope so.

LCD screen not on when camera on?


You hit the EVF/LCD button near the "eye hole". When this is pressed it will cycle viewing through either the optical viewfinder or the LCD screen. This display is controlled independantly on each of the modes: shooting, or viewing. This is so you can set the camera to view pics before taking them from the optical viewfinder and view pics once taken from the LCD or vice-versa.

Black Bars on all blu ray movies


Hi icmjrtdr,

Having black bars displayed when watching a Blu-Ray disc is a common occurrence, even with a widescreen television.

You may have heard or seen aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9. 4:3 is the ratio of a traditional television that is nearly square. 16:9 is the ratio of most widescreen televisions currently marketed. The reason that even with a 16:9 television Blu-Ray discs are displaying black bars is that many of these discs contain footage that has not been reformatted for television. The screen in a movie theater is even wider than 16:9, and rather than trim the ends, most Blu-Ray discs maintain the entire picture.

Depending on the options available in your particular television, you may be able to find a zoom setting that trims the ends and removes the black bars. It is up to you if you would rather see black bars with the entire picture or lose a small amount of the picture on each side for a full-screen experience.

Hope this helps,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.
