Did you accidentally hit the lower left "Disp" button on the back of your camera? It manually turns the screen on or off to save batteries. Turn the camera on and press it once to check.

My Nikon coolpix l820 the screen doesn't work on camera setting but does on the video camera setting


hi,
when the still camera works the shutter of the aperture and iris is opening for a limited time, if it opens without limit the excess light will enter in and the result will be blurry picture, if the shutter is not opening the picture will be dark. in movie mode the shutter will be always in opened state, so I think there may be fault in shutter.
in some cases a slight jerk giving to cam when you depressing the snap button will reset the shutter and will work normally.

Canon Power Shot SD750 screen went black. Read solutions, not sure what TV mode is? Is it same as video mode?


Tv is "shutter priority" mode. The Canon SD cameras do not have that mode. Instead see Fix 5A of the below link. 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.

Power shot a620. screen is not showing pictures, all icons are there but screen is black? Help please!!


Sounds like you might have accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. It turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Turn on your camera, and press this button once again to turn the screen back on.

But if your camera is also taking black pictures,
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, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
