Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H9 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Won't Take Photo

I have the Sony DSC-H9. I can view old photos I've already taken, which is only about 25 or so, and the LCD screen works fine. However, when I attempt to take a new photo, both the LCD screen and the finder show a completely black screen. If I take a photo, it registers as a photo taken, but all I have is a really nice photo of a completely black screen. This just all of a sudden started one day, and it just sort of works when it wants to from time to time. Anyone know what's going on???

Was it exposed to heat water or a surge of power electric or static
this is first question
second question was the memmory card slid in all the way into place

now cameras are hooked into comps by usb cable comps. see these as storage drives when viewing on computers they are still impurvious to virus attacks seeing that the computer thinks its a small hard drive
format delete hammer down the memmory card to wipe it clean
if this doesnt work the camera was dropped and the telephotic lense inside which was once called the shutter is dammaged this allows the pic to be taken clearly this will be tech job for repairing it

Hit buttons for the ISO settings on the photo you just took; if the settings are way off, maybe you can correct those or select a mode which gets you a proper image in the LCD; or reset the camera.

I for one wish I would jog the camera to a local shop for free adjustment (e.g. lens reattachment) the first time I ran into symptoms like that. I always let it fester 10 min, though.
