Dark Viewfinder. The image results are dark too. It's been like this for two days. And I swear I did not do anything wrong. :(


If the image results are dark, the problem must be inside the camera. If you changed the lens something fell inside it and is blocking the light to the camera. You should check your nearest Nikon store and get it fixed because if you try doing it yourself you could damage the sensor permanently and destroy your camera completley.

LCD woont turn on properly but the camera takes pictures while the screen remains black or in my case dark grey as its not totally black.


The water has ruined the LCD, water and electronics seldom mix, you are lucky it still will at least take pictures. If it is a high end model then send it back to the Factory repair center listed in the user manual (or phone number to find a repair center).

Sony cybershot t300 lcd screen remains dark when switched on


Hi,
Your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. If the problem is due to your dropping the camera, you might be out of luck.
If you have not dropped your camera and still facing this problem, then contact service people to replace the CCD imager in your camera .

Hope this helps .

Lens will not retract. orange and green lights come on, but preview screen remains dark and lens will not retract when I trun it off.


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Dark screen


Hi

Your camera has a bad CCD, and I think Sony might still be fixing them for free under recall. Here is the info you need:

No service forms or mailing addresses are provided on the Sony US site. Rather, owners are instructed to contact the Sony Customer Information Services Center for further assistance at 1-866-703-7669.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Dark screen on HP Photosmart E327


Same problem here, i upload the pics on my computer, then i turn off my cam, few minutes later try to turn it on, but no success, still have the blackscreen. I try to change the battery, reset it (15s without the battery, another 2 hours but no success), format the memory card (even without the memory the cam doesn't turn on).

Dropped camera-two corners dark


Check what the actual pictures look like when they are downloaded to PC or to print. The problem may only be on the screen. It may be very expensive to replace the screen, but you might be able to live with it?

Good Luck
