From what you are writing it seems that the camera works fine and that the screen is also ok, FIrst of all make sure you have the memory card inside the camera, if you have it in, then take it out,clean it up a little and the slot also. also you can connect your camera to the computer and check if the photos are in the camera or not. Then I would suggest you make sure in the menu that photos are allowd to be displayed. If you have more questions and you made all this post it here and i'll what else we can do.

LCD Screen

Your camera is working exactly as SLRs have worked for the first half-century since their invention. You frame the picture through the viewfinder then take the shot. The display is for menu settings and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Newer DSLRs will let you use the display for picture-taking (and take videos) but the A200 belongs to the previous generation.

How do you show screen display

The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, providing a viewfinder through which you frame and compose your picture. The screen is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures you've already taken. The LiveView feature which lets you use it as a point&shoot camera was introduced with the D300, introduced a year after the D60.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way this camera works.

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).

I like to use the screen to shoot pictures, but my screen is always dark or i have only the information data on the screen. How i can use my screen?

You can't. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, using the viewfinder to frame and compose pictures. The screen is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Only more recent dSLRs have the live view feature allowing you to use the screen for framing and composing.

Turns on, takes pictures, blank screen

I know in most digital cameras there is an option buried in one menus to turn display OFF. Perhaps, you can have a look around in the various menus to turn screen back on. Also, there should be another button or feature that allows you to view the shots you've taken.

Black screen when viewing photos taken

When the picture does not display - do you see the normal text and icons that you would expect to see? Or, is the screen completely blank?

Black Pictures

Do you have it in manual mode with too small an aperture and too fast a shutter speed?
