LCD Screen

Your camera is working exactly as SLRs have worked for the first half-century since their invention. You frame the picture through the viewfinder then take the shot. The display is for menu settings and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Newer DSLRs will let you use the display for picture-taking (and take videos) but the A200 belongs to the previous generation.

My Powershot SX10IS will no longer take pictures. I don't know why.It turns on and the picture shows in the viewer, but when the button is pressed to take the picture nothing happens. There is a movie...

The movie camera icon means that you have put it into video mode. I don't know how you do or undo that on your camera, but on my Canon there is a slide sitch that selects still shots, video clips, or review pictures taken.

On picture taking mode, screen is black but can still take pictures

Please provide more detail about your problem.

Does the screen play back the pictures ok but not during record mode? Or is it off all the time and you used a computer to review the shots that were taken?

Check the basics listed below:

1. The screen may be switched off.
Press the display button on the back while the camera is on. This toggles the display setting between various settings such as Off/ On / Info. Keep pressing the button to try the aternate modes, it just goes round and round to 2 -3 different modes.


2, Check that the monitor brightness setting is set to medium at least in the menu's.

3. If the problem is only affecting recording then check that the main record settings are correct for the type of scene you are taking. For example don't use Beach, Snow, Candle or manual with a high shutter speed while taking regular daylight shots with minimal lighting.

. 4. If the LCD display has a hardware issue you could connect the camera to a TV using the video output jack and look at it that way. Then you'll know if the built-in LCD is ok or not.

5. Having a damaged or stuck video output jack COULD cause this problem also since that circuitry is designed to automatically shut off the built-in LCD display when you connect a video cord to it. Note that having a video cable plugged in to the video output jack would shut off the display also. Such as when you have it connected to a TV.

Black screen while shooting, but still taking pictures not black

Nonononooooo fotomohamed, he can review just taken pictures on the LCD. The screen is working.

Actually, it sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save batteries (you would then use optical viewfinder). Just press it once and it should turn back on.

So much LCD trouble...screen is blank/black

CCD sensor fault ( not outputting anything so no pictures captured ). Have the sensor replaced but try to have it done free of charge. Sony does replace them free of charge but you have to check with them ( not all models with this fault are repaired free of charge ).
