When I turn on my camera to take a picture the display screen is completely black. If I try and take a picture nothing comes out. The whole picture is completely black.

But when I switch to the display mode to view my pictures, I can see the old pictures from my memory card. But I just can not take any new pictures. What should I do? What do you think the problem i

LCD White-out I have had this Fuji FinePix A350 since Christmas 2006. This August while on vacation and taking quite a few pictures with a new 1GB XD card, the LCD screen would come on with a blank white screen as the camera was turned on. I continued to take photos using the optical viewfinder to frame my pictures, hoping that it was still working even if I couldn't view them. Fortunately, all the photos did come out fine even though some were totally out of focus (focusing was sometimes a prob

We have a canon powershot A410 digital camera with 3.2 mega pixels (purchased brand new in fall 2007) and recently, whenever we take pictures outside, they come out completely white (overexposed). The video function of the camera still works perfectly, and for awhile, the inside pictures seemed to work out okay, but now they are partially overexposed/with white blotchy areas. Is there a way to fix this?

Picture error I have an Olympus SP-51OUZ camera. Nearly every photo I take, when reviewed, comes up with 'picture error' and a big warning exclamation mark (in red on a blue background). Only about 1 in 20 photos taken are ok. I have formatted the card but it still happens. When I used the card on my laptop it scanned it & said there were no problems with it. Obviously it's a nightmare because I have to review every single photo to check it has come out! Please help! Rachel

My Canon G9 has a problem, where everything functions normally, except the viewing screen is black (the functions and menu show up though), and when you take a picture, the image is black. I can still play back photos before this happened and see them on the camera with no problem, but cannot take new photos. Any thoughts?

Look inside the lens while the camera is on - check the iris to see if it's open. It is similar to the iris in your eye. When the camera is in low light, the iris should open wider. Sometime the iris can get stuck due to moisture. Leave it in a dry e ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

When I switch the camera on the screen stays blank even though the lens comes out, it eventually goes off (with the lens still out after about 40 seconds). I can get the camera to work if I press the green "view" key and then, after the picture appears, press the red camera icon and it will go into auto shoot mode. Happens every time now. I can't take it in under warranty as it was a present and I don't have the receipt unfortunately.

My ViviCam T328 shutter function will not work properly. There are 2 functions to the shutter button: The pre-focus and the actual shutter function that takes the picture. Every time the pre-focus is pressed, the camera will take the picture immediately without focusing at all. And the other function does nothing at all when pressed.

Does it act this way when you set the camera to other modes? ... Vivitar ViviCam T328 Digital Camera

I've owned this camera Nikon F65 for a few years and it was working perfectly, but I haven't used it for the past year or so and now it just stopped working! I put fresh batteries in, lights come on and all functions are displayed ok, but the shutter isn't releasing and it isn't taking any pictures as if all the functions are disabled, no use pressing the shutter as nothing happens. I'd really appreciate your advice on this matter, thanks!

Some times you can gently tap the camera on its side while pushing the shutter button and free it loose. ... Digital Cameras

Not focusing I'm not sure what happened, nothing seems to be obstructing and to my extent of knowledge nothing has happened to my camera. However when I turn it on the lens comes out once, goes back in, and comes out again. Then the screen is blank, shows no picture until i push the play button, or until I change what picture setting it is on. Once the screen shows picture it will not focus anything. Any help here?

I have a canon rebel xsi that is not taking pictures on auto focus. It will take pictures on manual focus, but they're blurry. I changed my lens to a bigger one to see if it was the lens or camera, and it's the camera. I had the same problem with the other lens. I've tried cleaning it & turning the lens focus ring but is still doing it. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

MPEGMovieVX DSC-P200 I dropped this camera in the water last week. When I dropped the camera it was on and ofcourse went out after just a few seconds in the water. We removed the casing and dried the camera out. Everything seems to be functioning normally with the exception of taking a picture. When in any mode, the screen is just black. It's as if there is no light getting into the lens. The screen still shows all of the functionality, I can still adjust functionality, and I can still view pict

Focus problems Hi, my camera is not focusing clearly. We just used it recently and can look at clear pictures on the display screen but now when we go to actually take a picture it's blury (on the display screen and if a picture is taken). I also notice that all these different setting menu's come up on the display screen when we are in take picture mode. I took it in today and they said the lens could have been bumped or that their is something wrong with the focusing inside. So they would hav

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).

Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera

My Canon SD950 IS camera will take about 30 seconds to take a flash picture. You have to hold down the shutter button for a long time. The flash indicator flashes on the display for quite a while and then the picture is finally taken. This seems to have happened after the battery was run down to nothing. After that, this flash problem appeared. I have got another battery but this still happens. I have reset to default settings as well . Still has problem. What is wrong?
