Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

We have a Canon SD1100 IS. We wanted to take a photo, but the screen is black. We took a photo anyway and tried to view it and it does not come on the screen, and the screen is still black. We tried the DISP button and that does not work in this case. Everything else seems to be ok. We can see the other photos we have taken. Do you have any idea what is wrong with the camera or where we can take it to have it looked at or fixed? Brian Anderson

Hi, the camera worked fine for years and one day the camera stopped "seeing". The 1" screen works fine but the camera doesn't see light or the scene and will not capture images. It seems like it wants to work but doesn't. It acts like I left the lens cover on it. dave
This is the most common problem with digital cameras.\015\012The shutter is stuck in the closed position. This is most likely due to moisture residue built up over time on the shutter leafs. You will need to have the camera serviced to have eit ... Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

I have a samsung L200 digital camera. It was working fine until my 2 year old little girl decided she needed to play with it. Not sure if she done something or not but now the camera will not work. When I try to turn it on the power button lights up but that is all that happens. The screen does not come on or anything else. Also the lens seems to be stuck and will not go back in. And I also just noticed that the power button will only turn the camera on but will not turn it off. I was trying to

It just says 'busy' up in the left hand corner of the screen. the camera is working perfectly. the CF card seems to be working. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks Sandy

I swapped memory cards with my daughter as mine had a bigger memory. However it didn't seem to work properly in her camera. Her camera now freezes on the opening screen when its switched on and does nothing else, the lens also refuses to go back in. I put the card back in my camera and now mine just switches off when you turn it on after making 3 blip noises! Now both cameras don't work with or without the memory card. I've checked the manual for mine which has no explainations. Also checked bat
The first mistake happened when your card was tried in your daughter's camera. She should have immediately formatted it first since the card was optimized for your camera's operating system. Since she didn't do that and tried to use it in her camera, ... Agfa DC-1030S Digital Camera
When i turn my camera (cannon powershot SD1100 IS) on the screen is black like it can not see through the lens. I can still see all of the menu options on the screen. If I try to take a picture it will still take a picture and the picture shows up just like it is supposed to. I can still review the pictures on the camera. Everything else seems to be working fine.
This could be a firmware problem.First, check your screen settings, should be in the setup menu. You may have the screen switched off, often used as a power save option.Secondly, if its still under warranty, go back to the ven ... Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS IXUS 105 Digital Camera

Hi, First off how long have you owned the camera? I would suggest you contact canon and have the camera serviced. There is most likely a broken/defective part in the camera. Follow this link to find the nearest service center. I am assuming you ... Digital Cameras
No picture the camera doesn't "see" anything - all other parts seem to work, I aim it, shoot, the flash goes off but no screen and no image is taken. I can access the menu fine. figures this would happen on my vacation to Hawai'i (it worked fine just before I left - could the airport screeners have messed it up?)
Same thing happened with mine. There is a recall on these cameras. I don't know what it's called, but the part that actually captures the image is defective on many of these cameras. There is a recall notice and form on the Nikon site somewhere. I fi ... Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera

Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe? But nothing on the outside seems to be actually broken. The lens is crooked, but thats all that seems to be wrong. Yet it won't turn on at all. Maybe if someone could suggest something? Perhaps maybe something needs to be fidgeted around inside? Or is it a better idea if I pay a professional? But whatever the case. Anyone who has any suggestions it

My HP CA340 10.0 megapixels with 3x optical zoom lens only shows a white screen when I turn it on. I can still take pictures with great quality as I could before, I just can't see what I'm doing. It was working fine yesterday, when I turned it on, it seemed fine, then the screen randomly turned white. I would like to know if there is a way to fix this before I actually have to send it in for some one else to repair.

I have a Canon MV600. when switched on to 'camera', all I get is a blank screen. Occasionally it will work normally. I suspect the iris is not opening and the iris motor sounds a bit rough. do you have any idea what the problem is likely to be and how much this repair is likely to cost. Incidentally, I also had this same problem with an older analogue Canon model so it would seem to be a common failing.
The US version of the MV600 is the ZR60. Canon has issued a service notice for this model world wide that seems to address your issue. The US version can be found at this ... Canon Digital Cameras
