My Powershot SX10IS will no longer take pictures. I don't know why.It turns on and the picture shows in the viewer, but when the button is pressed to take the picture nothing happens. There is a movie...


The movie camera icon means that you have put it into video mode. I don't know how you do or undo that on your camera, but on my Canon there is a slide sitch that selects still shots, video clips, or review pictures taken.

Nothing or black screen shows up when pic is taken


The problem is with the software in the camera! So take your camera to the nearby service center and do a format of your camera! That will fix your problem. Also check whether there is any problem in ur LCD screen!

I CANT VIEW IN THE VIEWER WHEN IN THE CAMERA MODE. IT WORKS FINE IN THE VIDEO MODE.IT WILL TAKE PICS IN THE CAM MODE BUT NO SCREEN.


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

The viewer is black.


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.

Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns back on.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W100 LCD viewer


do you guys have a grainy display, that makes it look like there are less color variations?

for example, if you take a picture of something that varies in color from one side of it to the other, with an infinite variation in one color to the next; do the colors separate into grainy spotches, as if it lost some color display capabilities? mine did this, if i took a picture of something that had different hues of one color, they would all flow together into one splotch, and upload fine.

so i sent it in and they said they "reconnected the lens-flex" among other routine things. problem fixed.

but then i sent it in again and they said they did the same thing, but the problem this time around was my capture-mode dial was glitching, the display was FINE. sadly they didn't do jack to fix the dial it and it still screws up. it will switch back and forth from adjacent modes without me turning it.

i'm happy with this camera but its a pain sometimes. if you guys have warranties send your units in ASAP to get it fixed for freeeeeee.

best of luck, i can't suggest anything beyond that.

So much LCD trouble...screen is blank/black


CCD sensor fault ( not outputting anything so no pictures captured ). Have the sensor replaced but try to have it done free of charge. Sony does replace them free of charge but you have to check with them ( not all models with this fault are repaired free of charge ).
