    My camera was not dropped, exposed to heat, wet or anything. I simpley deleted old pictures and then tried to take new ones and everything works, except when I click the button to take a photo, nothing happens. Any suggestions?

No display on lcd no picture

The shutter is jammed closed. This blocks the light from reaching the image sensor. This problem can generally be fixed without parts, price will be $100-150 for labor from a professional. Depending on the purchase price of the camera, you may be better off getting a new camera.

Samsung Digimax Cyber 530 does not show image on screen

Check the memory cards on your PC for the quality of the images that were shot now. if there is no fault seen the fault is in the display section. It can be a fault of the LCD or the failure of the flexible strip to the LCD.
