Not knowing the make or model of the camera you have I can only guess that there is a switch possibly lower right of the small viewfinder with the letters LCD/EVF. This would be a slider type I'm going to presume but may be a button. This switch will toggle between viewfinder and LCD

Screen is black when trying to take picture


Generally the settings have been changed from Display Mode to Viewfinder Mode. This was probably changed accidentally, but can be reverted by going into the menu under display options and changing it back to display on the small lcd screen.
Also, make sure to check that if there are connector pins that "lock" the screen into place, that both those pins and the small gold-colored strips are clean.

Camcorder will playback ,but shows no image when recording


Can you make it go while attached to a Power Adapter ? and with battery OUT, try that first. IF it works, buy a new battery for that model. Batteries can go so flat they cannot be charged, without special equipment,and even then they may not resurrect. funnily enough, leaving things without current running through them, or powering up,every few weeks, etc, can often cause a problem, strange huh?

Go to your menus, set all to factory settings or default.
Test the camera by using more of the settings, and notice how it works.
The LCD settings especially are what you want to make sure are set right...not too bright, and of course not too dim either.

Blury view finder


On the left of your viewfinder you will find a small knurled wheel. By turning this wheel you adjust the diopter settings of the viewfinder. You probably accidentally moved it and didn't know it.

Could you explain in a better way your problem?
The XSi don't show the menus on the viewfinder, it only shows on the back screen.
You can shut if of by hitting the "DISP" button just at the left side of the viewfinder.
You can also enable the screen to go ON or OFF, when you go close your face to the viewfinder, so the screen will be OFF when you get close the viewfinder, and ON when you move back your face
I'm trying to figure out how the menus can ruin a picture.

Let me know more about your problem.

KODAK eASYSHARE c530 BLACK SCREEN DOES NOT TAKE PICTURE


You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

Picture


This is not a digital camera. In order to see what you are taking a picture of, you use the optical viewfinder -- a small "window" at the top center of the back of the camera. When you can see in the viewfinder what you want the picture of, slowly press the shutter button.

LCD kaput - anyone know of a panasonic recall?


The panasonic camcorder does not use the Sony CCD element. If the small viewfinder is showing the camera video, there's nothing wrong with the CCD imager. We have had numerous problems with the switch that controls the activation of the large LCD and the backlight inverter that powers it. When you open the LCD the small viewfinder should power down to conserve battery power. The large LCD should then illuminate, if not, shine a flashlight at the surface of the LCD and notice if the video is present, if so, the backlight or LCD harness is defective.
