Turn camera off and on again


Can you come into the menus? Just to check you did not change anything? Sometimes the monitor or display stays black in record mode, because the camera was put in power save mode. In the manual you can find hoe to switch it on again. Has to do, with what you want to see during record mode. Just the image, image with info, sometimes with a grid and then display off.

Samsung LED backlighting turns off


The only cure for this is to get it repaired and stop smacking on it before you do some real damage.

My proview 19 in turn on but then it goes black is it a capasitor and how to fix it or is ther a reset on it


It may be the internal backlight that is failing. You can take a flashlight and hold it close to the screen, move the flashlight all around the screen and check if you can see anything. The display will be dark, but you should be able to make out the image that is there with the flashlight technique. If you can see an image on-screen, then your backlight has failed and you will need to replace the monitor. Weather or not you see an image is not a critical issue, but a tool to verify if the backlight is off or some other issue is causing the problem.
Note, it may be difficult to detect an image on the un-light display, for example if you have a dark image as your desktop background. So make sure to fully scan your display (top to bottom, and left to right covering the entire screen) with the flashlight technique in order to see any image on-screen.

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).

Unable to see image with taking the picture


You can turn the LCD screen off and on to save power. This is done by turning the camera on then pressing on the top (marked DISP) of the Control button (circular) in the bottom right corner of the camera. You may have to push it several times since this also controls LCD brightness and Display of functions.

Clearing message after "replace photoconductor kit" message came on


To reset the photoconductor page count:
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. While the printer is off, press and hold the Select (pattlnk_1262005_1956-enus20772_selectbuttonicon_t64x_en_us.gif) and Return (pattlnk_1262005_1950-enus21096_returnbuttonicon_e340e342_en_us.gif) buttons on the operator panel.

    pattlnk_1262005_208-enus21096_oppanelbuttons1_e340e342_en_us.gif

  3. While keeping both buttons held down, turn the printer back on. Keep holding down both buttons until the printer screen displays Performing Self Test or CONFIG MENU.
  4. Release the buttons when you see either of these messages.
  5. If Reset PC Cnt does not then appear on the screen, press the left or right menu button until it does.

    pattlnk_1262005_2017-enus21096_oppanelbuttons2_e340e342_en_us.gif
  6. Press the Select button once. The message Resetting PC Cnt Value should briefly appear on the screen, indicating that the photoconductor page count has been reset.
  7. When the display shows CONFIG MENU again, power off the printer.
  8. Wait five or more seconds and then power the printer back on. NOTE: Do not hold any buttons down when powering on the printer during this step.

    The photoconductor page count should now be reset. At this point, it is recommended that you print a menu settings page to confirm this. Do the following:
    1. With the printer at the Ready status, press the left or right Menu button until UTILITIES MENU appears on the screen.
    2. With UTILITIES MENU on the screen, press the Select button once. A new menu should appear.
    3. If Print Menus is not displayed on the second line of the screen, press the left or right menu button until Print Menus appears.
    4. Press the Select button once. The message Printing Menu Settings should appear on the screen and the printer will print out one to three pages of printer settings.
    5. Look for a heading labeled Cartridge Information on one of the menu settings pages.
    6. Under Cartridge Information, look for the word Photoconductor. Confirm that the level of the photoconductor says OK or is close to 100%.
    7. If the photoconductor is still reading low, try printing 10 - 20 more pages.
    8. Print the menu settings page(s) once more. Confirm that the photoconductor level is now at OK or close to 100%.
    9. If the photoconductor continues to give a low reading, repeat this entire procedure again from the beginning to reset the counter once more.
    10. If the photoconductor reading is still low after two attempts to reset the counter, the printer may require service.
