The lcd screen's ribbon connector might be slightly oxided, a processor's tiny contact legs could be dirty or cracked- this is rare, but it happens. One thing you might try is to clean the battery terminals both on the batteries, and inside the camera. Oxidation affects current flow (reducing it), and strange things can happen in this case. Also, make sure the battery is good, and fully charged.
You can take the camera apart and spray the shutter switch contacts with contact cleaner, reseat the ribbon connector, spray the contacts, and reconnect it. You may have to have it serviced, but get an estimate first. Often the cost of repair is equal to that of a new camera.
You can take it to a local repair shop, or contact GE support to find the nearest authorized repair center:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

Display screen not light up


Are yo using a stock Nikon battery or an aftermarket brand?? Nikons cameras are all famous for their batteries not staying in their compartments tight which means your battery in not getting a good, solid connection. Open the battery compartment and put a tiny piece of folded paper on top of the battery (on the end where you close the door, not the side with the contacts) and then carefully close the lid, this will create more pressure on top of the battery making a stronger contact. Hope that helps.

Camera not displaying images as seen through viewfinder. The screen is black. Image controls and info can be seen but the picture is just black. Takes photos which are also black; but previous photos...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras, particularly for the SD1000. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.


By the way, my wife's SD1000 also has this problem every once in a while. I easily fix it by using the following steps from the link: powering on the camera, opening and closing the battery door, and flicking the end of the lens barrel with my fingertip (or you can tap it with a pencil as discussed in the link).

Can't take any photo with my Canon S3IS any more. The view finder and the screen is black when I try to take some photo but I am able to see all photo that is already on my memory card in the view finder...


Look into the lense while setting the shutter speed at a half second or so (slow enough for you to see the shutter open and close) and click the shutter release... you should see the shutter open and close. If you don't see this, then you may have a 'sticky shutter' resulting from lubricant seeping into the shutter/aperature mechanism and preventing the shutter from functioning as it should.(Common problem reported with the S2 and S3 cameras... and probably the S1 as well)

I have gotten my S3IS to take pictures by turning on the power, then opening the battery compartment door and reclosing it repeatedly until the shutter opens (from the power surge) and an image appears on the LCD.

After confirming the sticky shutter was indeed the problem, I pursued a more permanent fix.

When i take picture the result is black.


hi there if the photo complete BLACK or zero image then its a problem of your camera CCD. CCD is the most costly part of the camera. But you can try these for lick.
Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine . Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec .. in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
i hope it will gives you success.

What does "lid open" mean on the lcd screen? If this happens, can't take picture.


This means either your battery lid is not properly closed. Or the camera lens lid is closed. If camera lens lid is closed you cant take any photo. there will be some knob like thing which you can use to open the lid.

Let me know if you need more help.
Thanks

First make sure the mode selector dial is set to the red camera without an M next to it (ie you're in Auto mode and NOT in manual mode). If so...

Now the A410 is not capable of taking 15 second exposures as recommended for the fix. Instead try setting the camera to manual mode, turn off the flash, got to a darkened room, and take a picture. Open the battery door while the red and yellow light are flashing. If after many tries this does not work, then consider trying Fix #5a on the site. But do so with the camera turned off and the lens retracted to lessen the chance of damaging the lens mechanism.

My camera displays a "white screen" when i take photos "outdoors" or during daytime outside


Are you sure that you are in full "auto" mode when you are taking your pictures? Make sure that the mode selector is set to the first red camera (without the M) right next to the little blue arrow.

If you already are in full auto, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

Your camera is not capable of taking 15 second exposures. Instead try putting it in manual mode, turn off the flash, take it in a darkened room, take the picture, and open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are blinking. Give it several tries, but note that the chances may be very slim for success as the shutter symptoms suggest that it is stuck open.

Yep set the auto turn off higher and instead of removing the battery, just open and close the battery compartment.

This appears to be a problem I have raised with Canon, hopefully they will release a firmware update soon to fix this

An online chat with an HP agent resolved my problem, at least. All I had to do was reset the camera, which is done via the following steps:
  1. Remove the memory card.
  2. Turn off the camera.
  3. Open the battery compartment and remove the batteries.
  4. Wait at least ten seconds.
  5. Reinsert the batteries and close the battery compartment door.
  6. Turn on the camera. When the camera is turned on, you will be prompted to input or verify the date and time
Don't forget to reinsert the memory card.

I can't help with the camera, but to view the pictures on the computer, remove the card from the battery compartment and put it in a card reader connected to your computer.
