Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?
Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom
Finepix A800 The LCD Monitor has a frozen skewed kalidoscope type image on it. It is impossible for me to remove it or to get anything brought up such as the menu, or to view the couple of hundreds of pictures that I have taken on it. It is possible, still, to load the pictures from the camera to the computer, but that is all that I can do. I cannot manually delete any of the pictures from the camera, since nothing shows up on the monitor except for that frozen weird design. It will still take p

Did you try calling Canon tech support or returning to retailer if the camera is really not functioning properly this soon after purchase, I'd try returning it once all troubleshooting issues have not resolved the issue.\015\012\015\012Ho ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
LCD monitor works to display picture already taken and the menu display, but with not display live images. Must use the view finder. Menu does not have a "live view"
There is no function to do this on the EOS 400D. Don't forget the camera is an SLR and still has to open and close a shutter to take a picture. The image is then converted using a CCD instead of exposed on film. I find with my 20D I just take loads o ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
No image Hi, My DSC-F717 has been sitting unused for 2 months, but in safe place. When I turn it on now, everything works perfectly except there is no image in either the view finder or the display screen, almost as if the lense cap was on! All of the settings are sown in on the display but other than that the screen is black. When I try to film something it's the same, I get sound but but just a black image. I live in the Caribbean and don't have access to a Sony repair place so hope you can he

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. I feel that paying $350 for a disposable camara is a bit much! I purchased it just a little over a year ago. I saw on the Canon website that they are fixing

I have a Canon Power Shot S2-15 (5.0 mega pixels) My husband was taking pictures in the house and the image stopped showing up on the view finder or the screen. One minute it was working, the next it wasn't. I am hoping he changed a setting or something that can be reset. All of the menu items still appear, but there is no image. What happened? I really don't want to have to buy a new camera before we go on vacation. HELP!!!

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder, all i get is a completely black photograph. Occasionally, i see a glitter or two on the screen which is black and white (kind of like an unsynced TV image), but then it disappears pretty quickly
I had a A70 that would still take pictures, but the screen did not show a picture. I did some research and found that this is somewhat a common problems with some of the Canon Powershots to include the A70 where the LCD screens expire. I believe th ... Digital Cameras

I have a canon powershot s1is. There is no image through view finder or on the LCD. Menu works and theme pictures come up. It also still displays previous pictures already on memory card. No new pictures are displayed.

Sony DSC-F717 I have a Sony DSC-F717 camera which has worked well(except for the incredibly slow record time in TIFF) until now. The camera stays dark as if the shutter is stuck. I can turn the camera on, see the readings(battery, memory space etc.), view images previously recorded on the memory stick ? but not see anything through the lens, either on LCD or through the Finder. Is something locked up or stuck and how do I unlock it?
