Just had the same problem (black display). I moved my hand in front of it and took pictures of things but nothing happened. Then my girlfriend tried to point it to a lamp, and all-of-a-sudden it kinda woke up from a screensaver or something. So weird, but it worked. Perhaps it needs enough light in order to start using the display and lens. I couldn't take any pictures when the LCD was black. So, try pointing it towards a strong light source before you break your camera.

Monitor shows white out screen

You can try firmaware update (below link) if available for your model.

But the reason could be also the LCD screen connector inside the camera. So it may need service.

I ahve the pentax optio s6 camera. the camera

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem


Sounds like the LCD is faulty, but there are a number of things that can cause the LCD to play up too

Always check the batteries first (check that the voltage is correct with a volt meter) but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.


Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

I have wo black bands across the screen on my Pentax Option 550

have you tried changing the camera's settings back to default? in the camera's menu, find 'reset settings' or 'factory settings' or something like that to reset the camera settings.. you might have messed with some settings, otherwise it may be hardware failure, may be the LCD of your camera.. hope not so.. lol

Flash hi, good day. Please help me with my digital camera, when i'm taking a picture at night or in a dark palce, my optio 330gs wouldn't flash, so, the result is black and even in the screen is...

Check the manual throughly- usually there is a more comprehensive manual on the CD- to ensure all the correct setting are made. Other wise this is a flash failure[lamp or capacitor] Take a look at the Pentex technical support site.

Pentax Optio 330GS its gone blind!

You've probably got something as simple as a ribbon cable loose in the camera. Beware though, dismantling is a serious task unless you have experience. Amazingly the CCD is often connected in such a simple, analog-esqe, way that disconnecting it doesn't cause an error, just a black screen.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem

No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
