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?


Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder, all i get is a completely black photograph.

My Canon Rebel has stopped importing pix properly, despite being quite new.

No pictures I have a new Pentax Optio S10 with a Transcend 2GB sd card, which was correctly installed and formatted. I took several pictures which played back fine on the LCD screen.

Hi!! I inherited a Konica Dynax Maxxum 5D it takes great pictures, but I can't figure out how to get the LCD monitor to show the picture I am taking...it is on a blue screen with functions and settings, but I can't find where in those settings to change it back to seeing the view by looking at the screen, I always have to look through the view finder to shoot a pic. Hope you can help, Thanks a lot, Cath


To see the picture you want to take on the screen, your camera needs to have a feature called "live view". I'm not sure if your camera has that feature. It's a relatively new feature on more expensive cameras. Check your owner's manual. ... Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Digital Camera
