If there is no image, it probably means that the lens cover is not opening. Give it a light tap after turning on the camera and this may make it open.

No preview image


Hi there:
You can view pictures in the folder when connected the camera at pc monitor? but cannot take pictures or movies... the LCD stays blank?
If this answer is yes, could be a problem with the CCD image sensor, if no, your LCD display go to bad and will need replacement.

Check this interesting article about bad CCDs.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

My screen stopped showing the pictures completely. During playback and when I'm taking pictures. Could it be that the LCD burnt out and can that be fixed?


I'm assuming that the camera still takes and records images as usual and that you can upload them to view successfully from the memory card, and that the camera powers up and the battery charges as usual.

If so, then the most common causes are a failed LCD panel or loose connectors to the panel from the main circuit board, or a failed backlight. Depending on the age of your model, a new LCD panel should be available and the price depends upon the size. A failed backlight or a loose connector is more common though. In some instances, the LCD driver on the main board has failed, and unless under manufacturer's warranty that usually is terminal for the camera.

It's also not uncommon for users to have simply turned off the LCD display. Not all Canon models allow you to do so, but I suggest that you check your owner's manual to eliminate this really simple cause.

Unfortunately I cannot give more specific advice as you haven't stated the exact model of Canon camera which you 're asking about.

I have a nikon d60. I use to be able to view the image in the window while taking pictures now I can not. I believe my setting are off can u assist me


The D60 doesn't have the LiveView capability to allow you to use the LCD screen to compose your pictures. If it did so in the past, there was something seriously wrong with the camera which apparently has fixed itself now. The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, providing a viewfinder for this purpose.

New batteries are not lasting longer than a day


Battery life can fluctuate greatly from day to day. It all depends on the type of photography you are doing. For example, on one day, you spent the day taking pictures outside in the sunlight, with no flash, and didn't use your camera's screen to review any of the pictures. The next day, you spent the day inside, taking lots of pictures using the flash, zooming in and out on people's faces and reviewing the pictures using the camera's screen.
Features like the flash, zoom, LCD screen and image stabilization (IS) use a great deal more battery life than if you were to not use any of those features. This could explain why it suddenly seems like the batteries aren't lasting more than a day.
However, if your photography habits have not changed enough to potentially affect battery life, there could be an issue with either the image stabilization hardware or the standby mode of the camera. If the image stabilization (a fully mechanical feature) is malfunctioning, it could be activating when it shouldn't be, such as when the camera is on but you aren't about to take a picture.
I would try testing the camera by taking pictures using different camera settings.
  1. Turn off the flash and image stabilization, use the viewfinder instead of the LCD live view mode, do not zoom in or out. Take as many pictures as you can before the batteries die.
  2. Keep the flash and image stabilization on, use the LCD live view mode, use the zoom frequently. Take as many pictures as possible before the batteries die.
With test #1, you should see much better battery life than with test #2. If you still experience decreased battery life either way, there may be a hardware issue with the camera. Should this be the case, contact Canon Support to find out whether or not your manufacturer's warranty covers this problem.

LCD montior not on to see picture before taking picture


On the EVOLT E-300 it is not a camera that has a live view LCD screen that will allow you to see the image before it is taken. You must take the image with viewfinder only and only use the LCD screen for review purposes. This is how the camera was designed.

I dropped my camera in hot tub


I beleive your shutter blade is stuck and thats why your lcd screen stays black even if you take pictures. It cannot get to the actual part that allows you to take images. That is something you will have to take to a repair person to fix because they would have to take the full camera apart to fix the shutter blades. Now for the battery, it might be an easy fix by getting another battery and if not you have damaged the part of the electronics inside that allows the charger to charge properly. Good luck and I hope this helps some.
