Having problems with your Casio Exilim EX-Z55 Digital Camera ?

Display goes blank

\015 When I turn the camera on in picture taking mode the display shows for no more than 2 or 3 seconds then goes off. You can switch to displaying previous shots and the battery strength is fine. You can also take pictures - you just can't see what you're taking when you are taking the shot.\015

Answers :

I tried Solution #1 (twice) with no luck. But, when drilling down thru the options in "menu" I found one that said "reset" and tried that. Voila! Back in business. Display no longer blanks in 1-2 seconds. Don't know if this only works after reformatting internal memory or not. So, if no luck with "reset" try to reformat then reset.
It sounds like your lcd is going out. Sometimes it will do that when you switch to picture taking mode. Don't understand why. Try taking your mem card out. If you have pics on your internal mem transfer them to ur computer. Format your internal memory and then try it again. If it still does it then you're going to have to send it in.

Mirror locked up at 125th or slower and infill flash does not flash. At faster speed it works fine. The display on top of camera goes virtually blank and battery display flahes a sif it battery was exhausted. If shutter release is pressed again then camera goes back to normal 'ready to sheet' mode.As flash is synced to 125th I suspect that the flash is the problem (or maybe it is just coincidence) I have tried cleaning, used lenses and put in a brand new battery. Any clues?

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?
