Hi thomasprinks, It may be the mirror is in the up position. Remove the lens see if you see a mirror or the shutter. If the mirror is up it may be stuck to the top of the film box. Those areas sometimes become tacky holding on to the mirror. You could remove the batteries to see if the mirror will fall into place.

Take the lens off the camera and look inside. you should see a mirror angled at 45 degrees. If you do not see the mirrir, it is probably stuck in the up position and repair is necessary

I have an olympus om-1 and the viewfinder is black. how can i fix this? I had it in my camera bag safely and today i took it out and loaded it and the viewfinder is black.


Make sure the mirror lockup switch is not activated. Take lens off camera, look inside camera through lens mount and make sure mirror is in down position. When the morror is up, it blocks everything in viewfinder.

The viewfinder is blank and working only with review option. Since the viewfinder is blank the photo and video is also blank. Is it a firmware software problem.


Its a camera CCD Problem. If the View finder & LCD both showing black then its 100% CCD problem. Let me know Lcd also black? Also make sure lens is not covered by any thing.

Black screen will not take photo


May sound silly but, make sure the lens cap is off. If so, then look to see if the automatic iris is opening when you power on the camera, you will know it is open when you can see the glass of the lens. Fresh/fully charged battery/batteries would be something else to try.

One way out of the glare is to use the optical viewfinder (if your camera has one) to preview your image instead of the LCD. Another possibility is to buy a camera that has a backlit LCD.

Can't see out of viewfinder


The mirror motor is probably the problem, you'll usually hear a whirring noise like a motor spinning. It's about a $125 repair, requiring the mirror box to be removed and the mirror driving motor replaced. Pentax originally put a plastic gear on the motor shaft - the replacements have a brass gear.
