Most likely you have a problem with the LCD display. The displays are very susceptible to breaking if the camera has been dropped. The backlight could be defective too. I have replaced many of these displays in cameras. try to get an estimate to have the display replaced. You'll probably find that the estimate will be fairly high. The displays are not too hard to replace. You might try contacting the parts department at Canon and see if you can purchase the LCD display and repair the unit yourself. I wrote and posted an article on this site on how to replace the displays in Kodak cameras. The prodedure will be fairly similar on most any type of digital camera.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Camera's LCD screen goes black every so often

No. All Lumix® Digital Cameras have a built-in feature to conserve battery power. After a certain amount of inactivity, the LCD will power down to preserve the battery. Simply hit the SHTR button, and the LCD will turn ON.

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all day perfectly fine turned back on screen blank, still takes photos, Still flashes, still beeps when press buttons just lcd screen is black likes its off?...


Hi

Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

There is something wrong with my flash screen. It's Black. Everytime I try to take pictures on My Finepix z fujifil blue digital camera the screen goes black, and when I go to see what I took a picture...


Flash screen? What? You mean even in pictures with flash disabled (and the flash does drag down the electronics in the thing; make a replacement using an LED lamp and circuit if you have a chance) it takes no picture and leaves you with a black LCD? Are you indeed using a good battery (they go bad gradually (depending on the case on how many times you fire the flash!)) New battery first!

Screen is black will not take pictures


If screen is black you have 2 situations: camera is power on or power off. If its power on and screen is black, its very possible to have something defective inside on the cam microcomputer board or with the display block, and my suggestion is to get to a repair shop for a test or if you are still in the grace period from the manufacturer, to ask for a free investigation. Cheers (PS sometimes black screen occurs when the LCD inverter is gone)

Kodak CX7330. turns on but LCD screen is black and won't take a pic


It sounds like a bad connection on the ribbon cable of the LCD screen to the camera's motherboard. The fact that when you physically move the camera around and you can get the screen to then work, tells me something is loose inside.

Good luck!

Pictures are black


If you can display pictures in playback mode but screen is black in capture mode then the CCD sensor has stopped working and needs replacing.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem


No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
