Question about Casio Exilim EX-Z40 Digital Camera
Turn on camera -
Monitor shows date, time etc in words but display is black, no image appears. If you try to record a photo it is also black. Shutter is open.
This symptom may occur in cameras with an optical viewfinder. These cameras have a power save feature that turns OFF the display after about 2 seconds. Simply press the DISP button to cycle this mode OFF or ON.
If that doesn't help, then most likely it is a faulty CCD sensor. If it is under warranty, its best to get it replaced. You will have to get the camera serviced if it is not under warranty.
You can find details about authorized service centers and out of warranty repairs HERE.
Hope that helps, and thank you for using FixYa!
