My Canon PowerShot SD1000 shoots completely black pictures. The lens is open and there is no damage to the lens or the screen. The battery is fully charged and I've even tried a different memory card. It reads pictures previously taken, but takes only completely black images.

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 b ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

I got new Sigma 18-200 DC II lens, with Canon EOS 5D Mark II it has black lens frame is visible through viewfinder or on the photo. Does it mean this lens is not compatible with 5DmrkII?

The EOS 50d Mark II is what's known as a "full-frame" camera. Its image sensor is the same size as a frame of 35mm film. The Sigma DC lens is intended for cameras with smaller sensors. The lens is compatible in that it will work with the camera to ta ... Digital Cameras

Nikon Coolpix s220...Lens Error. Camera was dropped from like 5 inches. Immediately received the error message screen. The lens is stuck all the way out...I have tried to do some of the above and while twisting the lens slightly got it to take pictures again, I think it may have done more damage because its still makes a buzzing noise when I turn it on and there is black on a portion of the screen like the cover is partially stuck (inside the camera).

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?

The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

Lens broken my camera fell off a table and now the lens is screwed up. when i turn it on it is just a black screen. but if i press firmly on the right side of the lens, the picture blurs, fuzzes, and then comes into focus, once i take my finger off it goes black. so i can take pictures, but only with my finger on the lens. it seems like this is fixable. what can i do?

Not easily fixed. Sounds like you stripped the feeds for the lense, and it messed up the contacts. Try sending it to Kodak for repair, or taking it to a camera repair place. These devices are sensitive electronics, so you won't be able to fix it at h ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera
