    My LED will not show the image I am taking a picture of. It still takes the picture, but I would like to see what I'm taking a picture of (focus, zoom, etc.).

    My LED remains blank at all times and more importantly, when I want to take a picture. There poses a problem because I cannot see the features of the picture (focus, zoom, etc.).The camera still takes the picture and I can see the picture when it is downloaded, but not when taking pictures.

your LCD must turn ON.

Not capturing 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). 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 takes picture but there all black? The


Last year my Canon PSA60 got the black screen in shooting mode. Menu display was normal and so the picture review mode.
Canon service center replaced the image sensor for free. When it happened again, I asked the service center for unit exchange (trade-in/upgrade program). Now I have my PowerShot S5IS. Good bye PSA60.

Canon has issued this in their notice page: http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/index.jsp?fuseaction=support&prod_type=notices-digitalcameras-lcd

All pictures taken are just Blackness


is there a view finder on this camera? often when there is a screen and a viewfinder there is a button to toggle between them, my sony camera has such a button although it is not a cybershot. i imagine the button says "dis" or "LCD" and just needs to be toggled. if the display were bad you would not be able to view pictures on it. display works must be configuration issue.

Display screen not working, picture display not working


If you press the display button it might make the pictures show up. I went on a trip to NYC last year right after i bought this camera and suddenly the pics weren't displaying and i was bummed because i thought that i had broke but after :( the trip i figured out that that was what the problem was.

No picture display when taking shot. Blank pictures produced when shot taken.


Solution:
Ebay has used cameras (DX4530) for about $75.00 with shipping. Kodak's repair service for these cameras is done by mailing in the camera -- and the baseline starting price is about $140.
I'm planning to go to Ebay and buying from a seller with a good track record and reputation.

Black screen


Isn't there a display on/off button on the back? It's purpose is to turn off the LCD display to save batteries, thus aiming your pictures using the optical viewfinder instead. Look for a button labeled "Disp.", it's in the lower left corner. Turn the camera on and press this button once.

If this doesn't work, am concerned that you also mention the pictures are also black. This can indicate a potential failure of the CCD image sensor, or its connectors from impact shock. To fix would require actually opening the camera, and can be more expensive to fix than the worth of the camera. If Canon quotes a fixing price that's shocking, consider gently tapping the camera against a hard surface on its padded USB cover. This may help reestablish a connection of the sensor's ribbon cable to its connector.
