The camera does not require a new CCD. This problem is most likely due to a stuck or malfunctioning shutter mechanism in the lens. Normally the camera will open the shutter to allow you to see the image so you can compose, and then when you take the picture it will close the shutter momentarily and record what the CCD saw at that moment. If the shutter does not open in the first place - all you see is black. If this is in fact your issue the camera will need to be repaired. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I'm sorry to contradict advance, but this definitely sounds like a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. You need to do this before March 31, 2008 so get going! See this link:

The Dimage models that Sony is accepting for the recall repair are:
Dimage 7HI, 7I, A1, Xi, F300, XT, X20, S414.

Coby 40 LCD TV has splash screen and sound, but no picture

Looks like you might have issues with your screen it self the lights and all internal issues. You might have to take into a repair shop to get it done, a fuse might have been blown up. If you have warranty try to take it in and get it fixed.

Partial black screen

A number of things could be wrong.
See if you can get the menus to work correctly.
If you can see the menus then the problem is not in the playback system, but in the taking part of the camera.
Could be a ccd problem if the menus are okay.
If you can get the menus, set all to default, and then test it.
If the menus also shows the bad picture details as you have described, then the camera needs repair.

KODAK eASYSHARE c530 BLACK SCREEN DOES NOT TAKE PICTURE

You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

Black screen

If you can view pictures that were already taken before you ran into these problems, it may be that the sensor has gone bad. Please see this link for your options. (If you're not in the USA, your regional Canon service organization should provide you the same options.)
