Yes it could be a bad CCD but let's not start condemning things at this stage. Grab a memory card which you know has pictures on or if you only have blank cards then put them in a card reader and load a photo onto it. Put it in your camera and go to playback/review. Do you see the photo from the card? Try the EVF and the LCD. If you see a picture then it's possible either the CCD or video board is bad. If you don't see your picture then it's probably not the CCD but a more widespread problem. Either way it's going to need a trip to the repairman. Ask for a quote, replacing parts can be more than buying a new camera at times. BMW

Its a case of defective CCD. Either contact NIKON for free repairs or get it changed from some repair shop.

When in video recording mode LCD screen and viewfinder are black when the lens cap is off.

It could one of a few problems:

1. The viewfinder is pulled out and "PRIORITY" is set to "FINDER".

Push the viewfinder back in or set "PRIORITY" to "LCD".

2. The LCD monitor's brightness setting is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor.

3. If the monitor is tilted upward 180 degrees, open the monitor fully.

Lcd display not working on nikon d40. When we turn on the camera, and take off the lens cap, the lcd display is black. we can use the viewfinder to take a photo. We can view the image after taking the...

The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.

I realize this probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

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?

Black screen will not take photo

May sound silly but, make sure the lens cap is off. If so, then look to see if the automatic iris is opening when you power on the camera, you will know it is open when you can see the glass of the lens. Fresh/fully charged battery/batteries would be something else to try.

I have a canon ds6031 eos 10d. When I turn the camera on the view screen does not show what your pointing at. Is this normal?

Yes, it is normal. This is a reasonably old DSLR, and it's designed for you to look through the viewfinder (it's more accurate anyway as it's looking through the lens). You'll find if you keep one hand under the lens and one hand on the shutter, it'll feel quite comfortable to look through the viewfinder.

You can still view photos you've taken after you've taken them though.

Lens cap?

Try removing the battery, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That may reset the lens cap sensor.

My Canon 300D SLR will turn on, and led display comes up saying battery is full and yet when you go to take a photo you cant see anything but black through the lens.

Obvious Questions, but you didn't supply the information.....:

1. Is the lens cap off?
2. Are you looking through the viewfinder? You will *NOT* be able to use the LCD screen as a viewfinder.

Otherwise, there is always a light path through the lens to the viewfinder, so....

1. Have you tried a different lens?
2. Have you checked the mirror is down?
