Could be a loose connector.
These situated at boas of screen so try squeezing the camera body in this area to try for a reconnection.

When I turn my camera on, the screen remains black and says turn power off and on. Upon doing so, when i turn it on again, it begins beeping and says turn power off and on. But if I go to the view pictures...


Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, press the RESET button located above the PHOTO button which will change all settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks for contacting FixYa

Black LCD screen/ not 'seeing' picture. Canon EOS 400D camera


Hi

The Digital Rebel XTi doesn't have 'live view' mode, you can't see what you're taking a picture of before you take the picture.

Black screen


Hi

Dangold have you tried pressing the "Disp" button? It's possible your camera is in 'power save' mode and the LCD is turned off to save battery power.

Can you take pictures even though the screen is blank? If you take a picture can you review it on the camera?

If you can take only solid black pictures then your lens aperture is stuck closed or your CCD is bad, and the lens will have to be replaced.

If you can find a good but defective camera online, you can use the two to make one good one. If you would prefer to have it repaired, I know there are a few places here and there that charge a reasonable amount, and many that do not.

I have been building an affordable digital camera repair business (Google: darntoothysam) for several years now, if you do need a new lens let us know, we can do the repair for only about $70!

Feel free to contact me, and even if you don't use us PLEASE don't pay somebody $150 to fix your camera!

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

CAMERA TURNS OFF WHEN IN PICTURE OR VIDEO MODE


Does the camera turn off or does the screen go black? if the screen goes black but the power lamp stays green then the screen is just turned off (power save mode), If it’s just the screen to turn on the LCD. There are 3 buttons just to the right of the screen, press the center button.

Black viewing screen and blank pictures


Luckyfourme,
Check to see that the automatic lens protector is opening and/or off when you experience black screen, as it should open letting light in when you power up the Kodak easyshare camera.
Good luck and Congratulations on your Daughters upcoming Wedding!
