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.

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.

Black screen


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. 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, 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.

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?
