Black screen, black pictures

I can turn on and view old pictures I have taken, but when I try to take a new pictures the screen is black and the picture comes out black. The lens is open and the flash works, but still no picture. Could it be the settings or has the lens broke inside? Help

Set to auto shooting mode, take pictures, if still get black pictures, you need to repalce the lens unit. CCD or shutter defected.

Its a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. all on a sudden, LCD is not working. Monitors remains dark when I press 'On' button and the photo taken are also dark. However old photos on the SD card I can in the screen...


Hello

If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

This is a system failure Tell Fuji Support about it but I fear any repair offer will be nearly the price of a new camera- unless of course it is still under warranty
