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, sometimes with lines, 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.

My camera turns on and shows the menu icons on a black screen. I can take a picture, and the flash works, but nothing is captured. After I take the black picture it works just fine, though.


Please contact your nearest Nikon Dealer the connectors of the Screen at the back are loose / happens sometimes, as far as we had the Problems (owners of Photo chain stores) Nikon always regarded is as a Guarantee Replacement.

Black screen on canon a 550


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on or off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder, just like you've been doing. To turn the screen back on, press the button once more.
