Black screen We are having the problem many others are having on this website. We were in the middle of our trip to Monterey this weekend when the screen went completely black and no more pictures can be taken. We could use the menu & could look at pictures already taken, so we have to conclude that the LCD is NOT the actual problem; however, we aren't sure why we can't take anymore pictures. We dumped all the pictures on the camera onto our computer thinking it might be "full", but still no

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem. But can anything be done to correct the blurry pictures taken in this situation?? Any software known to correct this problem? Thank's, Angela Sapp

I have digital camera olympus FE series. The problem started after i used the camera on the beach. Two days after the pictures that i took were blurred. Sometimes its clear but several days after the problem worsened. Even videos taken and all pictures taken were all blurred. I tried adjusting the setting but its still the same.

We continue to have problems once a picture is taken we get file errors or the picture is half merged with another picture. Also, the picture looks fine in the camera, but when we download to the computer it is merged with another picture that was not even loaded on the camera at the same time. We thought we might need to be more agressive in pusing down the shutter button, but this problem is really puzzeling us and causing aggravation. Can you help?

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.
The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras
I have an Olympus FE-330 The problem I am having is when I take pictures at night, focusing on anything is impossible. The view shows black, until the picture is taken. After the picture has been taken it shows a great view of the picture in the screen. Even changing the setting to night, does nothing-it's black I honestly was thinking of replacing the camera for this reason, it is very frustrating. Other than that, it is a great little camera.
Take a flashlight with you and shine it on what you want to focus. Press the shutter half-way, shut off the flashlight and press the rest of the way. ... Digital Cameras
Camera problems I can see the different setting symbols on the screen and when I turn it off and on I can see the canon pic it shows upon coming on. However, when I take a pictures I can no longer see the picture I am taken on the screen and although it appears to have taken the picture the picture turned out black. This starting taking place after my husband changed my settings I cannot figure out what to do to change it back. Please help.

Without flash Just bought the Nikon D40, wonderful camera!! I came across a problem today, took pictures of niece while in Annie play, which pictures must be taken w/o flash, eventhough I was on sitting in 2nd role, some pictures came out distorted, blurry, worse when she was jumping and dancing. How do I fix this problem?? HELP
Although your eyes can adapt to see well in low light, the camera needs a lot more light to take good photos than your eye needs to see in low light. Taking photos of a play or other indoor performance is a very difficult situation. 1) ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
I have a brand new G12 and have used it for the past 10 days. I loved it until it would no longer take pictures. This is the problem: I turn on the camera and the display screen is black. I take a picture and nothing appears. However, I have no problem viewing previous pictures taken before this issue. Can you please help....I really want to love the camera, but I should not be frustrated after 10 days. THANKS
That's usually the CCD Sensor. If you can take it back to the store since you just bought it, do that and exchange the camera. If they won't help you, get the original receipt and the warranty information and get it to Canon, it should be covered ... Canon G12 Digital Camera

Pictures missing some (not all) of pictures taken end up missing from the camera ; they can't be viewed on the camera or loaded into my pc. I know the pics were there but missing later. this has happened with two separate memory cards so I know it's not a card problem. I've had the camersa a few years and this is the first problem. One of the memory cards intermittantly comes up with a "memory card error" message but not the card that was exclusively in use when the problem first showed itself.
If you haven't done so yet, take one of the cards, reformat it correctly (please ask again if you need info on how to do this) and see if you get any change.\015\012\015\012Are you using a PC card reader to transfer the photos or a USB cable?\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

I try to take a picture in AF mode while the confirmation light in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be taken, but in MF mode picture taken correctly what is the problem?..
It's attempting to tell you that AF has failed. I'd expect low light, low contrast, reflective subject like a mirror or chrome. A solid colour wall with no contrast will also cause a AF failure. Auto Focus relies on contrast. Switching to manual mode ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
It appears that pictures are being taken with the lens cap on - when that's not the case. In other words all camera indications are that the picture is "taken", but it is a black square. I'm thinking a mechanical problem with shutter? The camera seems to "think" it is taking a picture.

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?

Suddenly I cannot search for images on my camera face.It seems to be stuck on one early photo. I tried to go to " lock " images -no help. also my computer will notprint pictures taken since July 28 or so. The camera worked fine until this AM.
