I took a picture with the camera, turned it off and set it down. about 20 minutes later I went to take another picture, when I turned it on, it powers up, lens opens, but monitor is black and if you look through viewfinder and take a picture, the image on review is also black. It still allows you to review past taken pictures, but won't show anything in the monitor.


HiThat sounds like the display is turned off for shot preview, see if you can get it turned back on by pressing a disp. button or similar, if that doesn't help then somewhere in the settings or setup of the camere there should be a reset ... Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

Need help urgently!!! GR-D22 not recording. I have a JVC GR-D22 Digital Video Camera (about 3 yr. old). It had been working fine. But recently it did not work anymore.

There is a good chance that the iris is stuck shut. Try tapping the side of the camera lightly to try and release it. If the camera can show you old pictures that are currently stored correctly, I would suspect the iris.\015\012\015\012 ... JVC Digital Cameras

Pretty much constant but sometimes intermittant problem of the camera fe-210 screen goes black. all functions appear to be normal but it does not see through the lens. So everything is black on the pictures taken. It's like the opening is shut. Sometimes it will work when first turned on for one or maybe two exposures. then it goes black and may stay that way even if turned on and off or changing any of the settings.

I have a Finepix S7000. This camera has been great for the entire time I have had it. Suddenly a day ago, I turn it on and it pretends to "Boot" up....the display comes on with the "Finepix" graphic...the lens "Moves" into position....the "Green" power light on the right grip side come on, (and stays on)....then, Nothing. When I try to turn it off and restart...nothing. The camera will not even turn "off" unless I open the battery hatch, (I put a fresh set in). Please help...I love this camera.

The display remains black no matter what settings are used. The last time the camera was used was one year ago, since then it's been in the case. The shutter opens when powered up, batteries ok and lens cap is removed.

The part that controls the aperture is stuck. Basically, when I look in the lens, the black part is still closed, and at first it stayed open too long. Now it is just stuck closed. I'm now in the UK, and it of course broke 1 day after the warranty ran out, so it's a no go to get fixed under warranty apparently. Now, I took it into a repair shop, and they said they see this happen a lot with digital cameras, and the more pictures you take the quicker the part will wear out. They're going to give

Black screen I just took pictures yesterday, went to take a picture today, and the screen is black, but the settings still show up around the edge of the LCD screen. I took a picture "just for fun", but it still showed up black (I thought that when the picture took, it would show up in the screen -- nope !!) HELP, I've only had this camera for about 6 months, and I love it (when it works). It was given to me for Christmas, so of course I don't have any of the receipts. Hope you can help me --

When taking photos with the camera set at the shutter priority, all the photos come out black. I have a lens with a f/2.8, but the on the screen on top the camera, the f reading is showing LO. I have taking photos for the last three weeks off our high school football games with the camera set up in shutter priority, iso at 1250 and my f/2.8. now for some reason the f reading is showing LO and all photos are black.


You mention everything except the shutter speed. When the aperture shows "Lo" it's saying that there isn't enough light at your selected shutters peed to produce a good exposure. That's why you have dark photos. You may need to bump the ISO up hi ... Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera

My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.


The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

The problem is\015\0121- some dirt somehow got on the outside of the lense. After it was retracted fully in, it prevents the camera from opening again. When you turn it on, if it opens a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard and let go ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Digital Camera

Lens stuck My camera won't register to open the lens. I don't know how it was before, but the screen is completely black and it won't take pictures. If I open the lens manually, the screen shows the image, but obviously I cannot take a picture with my thumb across half the lens. Is this fixable, or should I get a new camera?


Yes it is fixable. if there is a friction in the movement of the lense cover blades this happens. If it is due to fine sand or dust try using a soft brush with a rubber pump fitted at the back so that it cen blow the sand off the camera. The problem ... Fuji FinePix F470 Digital Camera
