Re: screen is black
Eagle 23: Press the "Disp" button and your LCD screen will turn on right away.
nazmil_mj: Can you take pictures or are they totally black as well? If you can only take black pictures then your LCD screen is fine and your CCD is bad or your aperture is stuck. Either of these means you need your lens replaced.
Don't bother asking a store for help (though you can if you like) they will tell you it's not fixable or will just send it to Canon and charge you $175 for the repair.
We are an affordable digital camera repair business, we can replace your lens for about $75!

Could be your camera is still working, but some settings are messed up?
You could have turned off the display. In the menu with IMAGE DISP. Is used to save battery power.
Then try making pictures in the mode automatic. Because if you switched to scene like bright sunlight or snow your pictures can be very dark.
Look for DISP or DISPLAY button in the lower-right corner of the back of your camera. Press this once while the camera is turned on. The DISPLAY button manually turns the screen on and off. This is to save battery power for extended use. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place.
In order for your camera to display the scene on the screen before you take the picture (the way point-and-shoot cameras work) it would have to have a feature called "live view". Your camera, as far as I know, doesn't have it.
its actually probably the display. there is 3 different displays. 1. shows picture with icons 2. shows just the picture and 3. is a solid black screen. just hit the display button to cycle through until your desired display is present
Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder to take pictures. To turn the screen back on, just press this button one more time.
I have had my Olympus FE-210 for about 2 1/2 years just recently it started to display an all black screen after I took pictures and like many of you I would turn it off and back on just to get 1 picture out.
After testing it over and again I may have solved the problem:
First: remove all of the pictures and memory card from the camera
Second: go into the menu and find the reset button it will then display that the camera will return to default(factory setting)
after I did this I was able to take over 35 continuous pictures using every setting and scene setting the camera has
If this doesn't work I would suggest buying a new camera
Hopes this helps!!
