If you research this camera online, you will find this is a very common problem with this model. My research says it is due to the internal shutter becoming stuck in the closed position. Some people have reported success by smacking the camera against the palm of their hand as they turned the camera on - this didn't work for me. I read of at least one individual who was able to open up the camera (camera was out of warranty, and was about to be a total loss anyway)and physically unstick the shutter. I have opened up mine as far as I can find way to get into it and still can't get to the actual shutter - hope you have better luck. I ended up going with a new camera at a more disposable price.

My lumix camera will come on, but the display for the pifture is black, how do i fix this

I think most of these questions about black LCD's and black pictures relate to a stuck shutter. My Lumix LX2 has this. The screen is black and so are the pictures. On looking at the shutter through a magnifying glass I took a shot and I saw that the iris works fine, but the shutter did not open. I am sending the camera for repair at a reasonable rate from Clearer images here in the UK.This is the email: [email protected] Time will tell won't it?

Black pictures in Canon G10

To fix that problem, they have a specific service package at this place: www.camerasandparts.com They just specialize in servicing the Canons and that's where a lot of people go for help with these. Through them, it's $89 for the repair with parts, and they service up the camera at the same time. The best part, they do exceptional work on the Powershots, that's where a lot of people go for help with these models. Best of luck with it.

The camera was working fine. I imported the pictures to Picassa succesfully and turned the camera off. I then went to take new pictures and all I get is a black LCD screen and when I load into Picassa the...

The CCD is bad or the Iris is shut stuck. If it's the Iris just stuck, it might just have moisture - leave the camera in a dry place for a day. If it's the CCD - pretty much "kiss-it-good-bye". To replace the CCD is expensive - get a new camera.

Black screen; lens won't shut; totally not working now

Sound like the sensor or recoding electronics are bad. The camera is most likely beyond economical repair and I would buy a new one.

LCD BLACK

When you say you can view pictures. Do you mean you can view them on the lcd on the camera itself or on your computer? It sounds like the CCD chip went bad most likely. If its not under warranty I would consider purchasing a new camera.
Thank you,

Pictures are black

My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?
