Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T9 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Blank screen We've had this camera not even a year and the the screen is blank. it turns on and takes pictures, but the screen is all black. our friend has the same camera and had the same problem, except his screen was all white. he took it to get it repaired but they told him its gonna cost him more than what he paid for the camera. Any suggestions?

    My T9 is just over 2 years old but has just started with a similar black/white screen when camera/video mode. Displaying old pics is fine. I think the sensor is blown....time for a new camera.

My Sony T9 showed an all black or white screen when in video or camera mode. It was ok to display old pics. After trying the "remove battery and tap twice" fix, the camera still didn't work. Tapped again in camera mode and the display came back. It appears to be working like normal (for now)

Usually it's an lcd burn out where the screen needs replacement. Check the display button if it's just blank then press it to see if it comes on. As far as your friends white screen it not feasible to repair. A good thing to get on any digital equipment is an extended warranty. It does save you in the end when something goes wrong. The limited manufacture warranties are a joke. You should never rely on them.

Blank screen


If you can play back captured images without any problem then your camera has a faulty CCD sensor. If you can get hold of a new CCD sensor block for this model somehow then you can install it yourself. Otherwise camera has to go to your Nikon agent.

Blank screen


Try this...if you can still get into the setup menu, scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. If not, remove the memory card and battery...press all the buttons...leave the camera alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. Did that help?

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

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...


The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):
