Black screen Yesterday I grabbed my camara for a not to be missed shot and found that I too have the same problem now of the black image through the view finder and on the lcd screen. I have replaced the batteries, tried changing settings and nothing works. I too can see the icons and view previously taken pictures but can take no new ones.
