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?

The LCD screen on my 40D shows the image taken, or the live view image, but there are large areas of missing image. Almost like the picture has been laid on a black background then a large piece torn out of it.... What is this? It's obviously a big concern. HELP!

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.


Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera

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
