    I have exactly the same problem. Camera was working fine up until 1 week ago, suddenly display is black, and any photos taken are black. Flash works as it should. Batteries fine. Existing photos on memory card are fine. I have swapped batteries and swappe memory cards, problem persists. March 2009

    EXACTLY the same issue. And as far as that "solution" I tried this and yeah, I could see the light before I took the picture, but it came out black as the others... so how is that supposed to help?

Try shining a very bright (Preferably an ultrabright LCD) flashlight directly into the lens while the camera is on. Hold it there for a few moments. Do you see anything on the display yet?

My view finder is screen is black..... when I take a picture, it shows the pic taken then goes back to a blank screen... it happened at a concert... it was fine then it went black


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

The view screen is black and you can't see what you're taking the pic. Battery is ok


If camera shows Menu item or any on-screen display in LCD but no live view to take picture then it can be either aperture problem or defective ccd imager.
And if you do not see any display icon in LCD then of course LCD section is bad or LCD back light is Off for some reason. Try to see faint image in LCD if it is totally blank by pointing good amount of light with flash light or some thing.

I get a warning which says *Battery Exhausted*. I've replaced them but still get the warning.. Any idea whats wrong?


earlier i posted solution in similary problem. maybe help you this.

solution is good batteries, Ni-Mh or Lithium, rechargeable only not alkaline. but...problem is how long you watch pictures on lcd display or how much is flash in use. if always by shooting pics used flash that means that you can with best batteries 30, 20 or less pics shooted. and of course, if you connect camera with pc, how long is cam on? just transfer pics on pc and turn the camera off. the best solution is use the card reader for pics transfering.
if is flash off, it's possible to shot 120-150 pics with Ni-Mh. with lithium i don't know, maybe 500 pics. don't use camera lcd for analysing pics it's just there for short preview.
with alkaline batt., very low quality, i shot 30 pics without flash.

i shot also very good pics at night without flash. nikon coolpix L15 can do that but you must have more praxis. alkaline batteries shooting!
after 3 pictures on display is message: warning! the battery is exhausted. what you can do? turn the camera off. wait about 10 minutes. turn the camera on, you can shot 3 or 5 pictures and than turn your camera off again.
you can repeat this few times and you be lucky if you 30 pics captured:)
REMEMBER: all this goes without camera flash!!!
flash and every zooming use more battery power! and that was all magic:).

LCD display stays dark and it will not take photos.


Say bye-bye to your CCD. They do go bad after a certain period of time. My recommendation is get a quote for replacement repair or buy another used A85. Hope this helps.

Camera not taking pictures


The camera may be trying to tell you that your flash is turned off in Auto mode, but to get a proper exposure you will need the flash turned on. Try turning the flash on and see if that works.

Hope this helps!

SD450 lcd went black


Please see the following post, and look for the SD400 LCD repair link. Click on the pictures of that site for larger pics. Follow the disassembly instructions, but skip the lengthy LCD removal portion. Instead just look for the LCD connector as shown on the front of the camera. Unseat the cable from the connector as shown by lifting the connector gate, BUT DO NOT unthread the cable through the camera. Merely examine its ends, and if it looks dirty gently clean it with a drop of alcohol on a Qtip. Give it some time to dry, and then reseat it back into its connector, close the connector gate, reassemble the camera and try it out.

Make sure you also read the following Flash Capacitor Shock Warning post on the above blog site before proceeding.

Good Luck and hope it works. If it doesn't the next step would be to check out the electrical wire power connection to the back light.
