Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX L4 Digital Camera ?

My camera turns on, the lens extends, and the flash works, but the screen is black; lit, but black. I tried taking a picture, but that was black as well and changing the batteries didn't work. It was fine a while ago, but all of a sudden it did this. Can someone tell me what's wrong and how to fix it if I can?

Black-out I've had my camera for about six months now, since February. It's worked fine, and I never had a problem, until about two weeks ago. Now, when I turn it on, all I see is black. If shaken it shows an image for about two seconds, before it goes black again. Taking pictures doesn't do anything, it's still black. Sometimes I can get an image, but it's grainy and only shows up as blue with light on the main object. It's worked fine up until now. I've changed the batteries a few times, but i

Put in other prrecorded tapes they are showing nothing as well. Then I tried to record which works fine, but when I played it back its still

Black screen Hi, I have a Powershot S1iS (CANNON), and it worked just fine for about 2 years now. Last week - suddenly the screen went black, and I can not see anything. When I switch to see the pictures I've taken before, I am able to do that, and I do see them. When I try to take a picture - I'm able to, but the picture is black. Can it be a memory card problem (since it's a new one, and I didn't swap it, to verify that). Thanks - Shlomi [email protected]

My Kodak M530 had been working alright since I bought it on December 2010 but suddenly stopped reading the SDHC card about a week ago. The card is fine because I can read the content from my Mac. Everything else is fine with the camera but, since the removable card is not being read, I am not able to store more than 7 pics on the internal memory... :-(
