When i take a picture, my picture comes out black the camera turns on fine, batteries are charged and everything. but the screen is black. it acts as if it was going to take a picture but the screen does...


Your camera may be manifesting shutter not opening problem. It needs to get to a camera service/repair shop.

However, it's good you physically check whether the lens isn't blocked or covered with anything

Camera opens normally, only takes black pictures


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.

Black screen, black pictures


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

My easyshare m1063 will take pictures, but the pictures dont show


I have an easyshare and there's a 2 part lens cover that closes when you turn it off and opens when you turn it on - normally. Mine only closes one part of the cover when I turn it off and opens when I turn it on. Kodak said I could send it in but I may have sat on it and caused it to malfunction. In which case they wouldn't cover it. Yours sounds like it's not opening at all. Look at the lens, and if you see a flat black cover with a wavy line instead of glass when you turn it on, yours is stuck shut. If it's still under warranty they should fix it unless you sat on yours too. Consumer Reports rated these a best buy but somehow this problem fell through the cracks of their testing.

Black screen, loud beeping when opened, doesn't work


The following blog outlines some simple repair options for a lens error. But please first try the listed Fix #2. I heard that fix particularly works well for a camera who's battery had run down with the lens open. Please post back here with a follow up comment if any of the fixes work:

No picture on screen


Aside from the sliding lens cover, there is a tiny lens cover electronically opened when camera is power on. Check to see if it's not opening. If so, give the camera a snap to the surrounding of the lens part and try to turn on again.
