When I plug in AV cable for playback on TV camera screen goes black

Hello, This is my first digital camera and I have been having fun with it. I love taking pictures and then playing them on my TV. Today, I turned my camera on and saw the picture on the camera screen but when I plugged the AV cable into the camera the camera screen went black? I even tried plugging the AV cable into the camera and then the TV and then turning them on but the camera screen is still black. I am not sure what is wrong and the camera is new. I appreciate any help or advice. Thanks

Did you fully charge the battery before use when you bought the camera? and is it charged now? most cameras can take photos but not be able to hook up to download. because photos take less energy it may be that it has just enough energy to take a picture, but not quite enough to do anything else. i don't think your stupid, its just that some people don't think of the little things as be possible. also could check to see if there is any obstructions. (dirt, little pieces of plastic, etc.) on the main routing items. (memory card, plug-both ends, inside the camera housing itself). hope i could help GOOD LUCK!

I have been taking pictures all day today, and viewing them. Came home and went to load them up and it shows I have no pictures.

Don't you just love Canons!!! If you didn't accidentally erase them, use a card reader instead of the camera to download them to your computer.

Nikon D-300

I bought the first D-300 and I love it except for one thing. Sometimes when I take continues shoots the camera will freeze and will not execute the picture. The trick is to slightly move the focus of the lens and the camera for some reason will operate again. I have talked to several experts and they say that this is just part of the camera for what ever reason. Regardless I truly enjoyed all of my SLR and have fun with it. Going digital has been great! Good Luck

My camera has been taking clear photos, but when I turned it on today, it is blurry - like there is a cloud over the picture.


Is the camera placed on a cold place and then taken outside a warmer place? This can cause moisture on the camera's lens. Have you tried wiping the lens already?

Also, try not to use the flash when taking the picture. This is just to test if the problem could be a flash issue.

Please post back.

Hello. My daughter has had her samsung S73 for 3

The eye flashing is normal when the flash is trying to charge up , if the batteries are healthy the camera won`t take a picture until the flash is charged fully.Try turning the flash off and see if the camera fires, get some higher rated rechargeable batteries (2000mah) or above this may resolve your problem.

Why do some of my pictures come out dark or with shadows?

Your Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does not have a flash. If pictures are coming out dark, it's because there wasn't enough light in the surroundings when the picture was taken. Remember, it's important to take photos in brightly lit surroundings. When taking pictures indoors, make sure that the room has bright lighting. For best results, take pictures during daylight hours with a combination of indoor and outdoor light, preferably near a window.
