Black LCD and Viewfinder

I am having the same problem as you had with the viewfinder and the LCD being black. Did you solve the issue, if so how? Did you end up having to replace the camera?

    I have not found a solution as of yet. I am currently umemployed, with nothing coming in at the time so I cant afford to do anything about it right now. I miss my camera, I use to take it everywhere. In fact my family teases me about always having my camera ready.

My Canon EOS Rebel T2i EF-S 18-55 IS Kit 18MP Digital SLR 4462B003 USA Model will not come on. What is the possible problem?


It's probably coming on but the button has been pushed to activate the viewfinder so all information gose there and the LCD screen remains black OR because this camera has an interesting feature just under the viewfinder that scenes the photographer looking into the viewfinder automatically shuts off the rear LCD screen. If this sensor is blacked then the LCD screen will not come on.

There is two ways to view your "taking picture" with the LCD and with the viewfinder, you can shut the LCD off to save battery power and use the viewfinder and that is what I think has happened. a touch of the DISP button and it will switch from the LCD to the viewfinder. here is a diagram

With you saying the LCD is working for functions but not for taking pictures this is what I suspect is the problem.

Black screen on my s6500 fd


I assume you removed the lens cap...;-)
If both the viewfinder and the screen is black, it is most likely an error on the CCD. If the viewfinder is OK, but the screen is dead, the problem is probably the LCD.
Hopefully you still have warranty on the camera?

Adjust the diopter knob. This is located on the left side of the viewfinder. Its a small black knob / wheel. Turn wheel until viewfinder is clear!

Black LCD and Viewfinder


I have the similar problem as above...Canon 5D

When camera is turned on the viewfinder is black. All other functions appear to be working correctly. I can view pictures on the card. I take a picture and it views on the screen and the spec's come up on the botton of the view finder but the viewfinder is 90 black with a bit of blur. Is this the censor or a mirror...?

Is this fixable and at what approximate cost? Would it be cheaper to replace?

S5200 Black Screen


The CCD is dead (most likely). Nothing the user can do to correct. Must be serviced. Get an estimate. Approx $100 US, unless covered by warranty.
