Answers :

On most cameras somewhere in the settings there is "liveview" but this uses a fair bit of battery power so it is sometimes set to "off".. Your settings to change this may be with the powersaving modes or in some other menu but it sounds as if liveview is off. Im not familiar with your specific camera but a friend of mine had the same problem the other week and this is what it was.

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

The second powers up with information on the LCD but instead of seeing through the camera you see black. Phots can be taken but they too are black. What is wrong and what can be done to fix them?
