Canon 60D playback images turning up black


Did you switch to Tv (shutter mode) and took pictures for several seconds? like in the dark? Because saving the picture can take as long as the shutter time was.
Before panic. (Actually you never should panic) check your camera in automatic mode. And make sure you did not select any power save action, that puts your display on dark while shooting.
But always be sure your battery is charged and check its capacity. In the menu yo can check under the wrench symbol, when you select Battery info. Page 268 of the manual.
Working with a bad battery can damage the camera in the end.

Compaq Evo N600c Laptop over 5 years old but has been working fine. About 2 months ago the screen went dark (bad lamp?) so been using an external monitor. Turned it on this morning and it started to boot...


Do you see any lights on the laptop that are on? If you see any lights and only a black screen, then more than likely your video chip on the motherboard has gone out. Some local shops might be able to replace the motherboard it might be cheaper than buying a new laptop. Good luck

I have a hyundai monitor which keeps switching itself off Displays the computer screen then goes into energy saving mode after a second or so Help!


alastairhaig, Is unit 4 years old? Could be problem with units switch-mode-power-supply if same thing occurs when connected to fully functioning different pc that has all screen saver and power save features disabled. After screen goes "black" do you still see the WIN-desktop screen and icon's if you hold a bright flashlight at different angles about 1 inch from the screen? SEE = power supply in "partial shutdown" mode. NO SEE = smps in "full shutdown" mode. Do some reading in my fixya profile about "black screen of death" repairs. also read FIXYA profiles of "budmrtn" "buddymc" and other fine profiles of technicians here on fixya. You will truly be amazed when you visit YOUTUBE for video clips of owners/technicians who save their cold cathode fluorescent lamp, back-lit lcd monitors from the "trash-heap"!!! After you do your research please return here and rate this response and possibly do additional comment. 12fixlouie

My monitor has just gone dark pictures now all look under exposed this has only just happened not sure what to do


magazine991, Use your warranty first! It's free! The internal "switch-mode-power-supply" has gone into partial shutdown mode. If you couldn't see the faint image on the screen using flashlight 1 inch from screen then it would be in FULL shutdown mode. You must have very good vision!!! Now all you need to do is get into my fixya profile and read, read, read!! Your monitor's basic design and operating principles are NO DIFFERENT than any other brand of CCFL back-lit LCD unit! Find out all your options on what you can do with your now BLACK but not BLANK monitor. Do not rate this response till you want to break this link. Do make a comment for more info if you still don't know what to do. I'm 12fixlouie Bye for now
