Re: black screen when looking through eyepiece
If camera will only display black screen, there's probobly some kind of blocking in the lense.
try restarting the camera. first save all data from memory-card, then restart it, unpug everything you can, take out batteries, and leave it alone for a day. if problem aint solved and you dont have the professional knowladge to open the camera and search for the disruption, you should take it to the store.

The image in astronomical telescopes are naturally upside down. This can be corrected using an inverting eyepiece . The reason this is the case, is that normally when viewing astronomical objects it doesn't matter if the image is upside down, so to minimise the loss of light that is the more important issue, unnecessary optical surfaces are eliminated. Terrestrial telescopes do naturally have inverting eyepieces as people expect to see objects the right way up.
Getting and inverting eyepiece will be cheaper the changing telescopes! :) Your eyes see everything upside down too, but your brain turns the image the right way up. The image in cameras is also upside down at the image plane, but the electronics turn it the right way up for you.
Some sellers have some pretty good aftermarket replacements. Give them a look. Sony Center was makeing this job at 2010, but no more; even way, you could try calling at Digital Product Support: 1-877-462-4464 . Also, try asking in this link for Minolta Support site; additionally, I quote some comments about this part...
I got the round eyepiece from Orion Store Site and it fit perfectly. I liked it so much I adapted one to my more recent Panasonic. It was a perfect fit for the D7i. You stretch the rubber around the existing eyepiece.
It is common for binoculars to have one independently focusable eyepiece. If one eyepiece can be rotated, then that is the case.
If that is the case, focus through the one that DOES NOT rotate using the center control until you get a sharp image on that side. Then rotate the eyepiece on the blurry side until the blurry side is sharp. If you succeed at this, from henceforth the center control will focus both eyes adequately
I've had the same problem for a while now too. The camera has been useless and Im looking to replace it. Im sure this problem hasnt got a simple fix and im better off buying a new camera! Id like to here if someone managed to get it fixed thou ?
Your camera is a reflex camera, it means what the lens you see
If the displays are black it means that there's a block inside the lens, probably the inner mirrors are stuck.
Try resetting the camera. Save the photos on the memory disk, disconnect whatever can be disconnect, get out the batteries, and let the camera rest for a day or two
If the problem haven?t been solved and you don?t have the knowledge how to open the camera take it to fix, hope the insurance is still good.
