... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

I bought the camera in the UK but I have since moved to Portugal and have only now had a chance to get the new camera out. This, I know, is my fault. But, nevertheless, I can't get it to work - the LCD monitor remains black when shooting whatever I do. It will take pictures via the optical viewfinder okay but I cannot get the screen to show. It works to display the settings etc but not for taking pictures so that when I press the display button it alternates between the photo settings (which


Canon models oddly do not support images on the LCD in every picture mode. Since the LCD works for settings, my guess is its in the wrong mode for the live view and its is not an issue with the camera's LCD.\015\012\015\012Here is a link to the ... Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i 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, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

Kodak V803 I think this is due to the camera being dropped: The camera switches on but all that appears on the viewscreen is a white light accompanied by black patches of distortion. The distortion suggests that the camera has suffered an impact as it has the appearance of a smashed window - with lines of distortion running across the screen. The view screen itself - is in tact - no evidence of impact - cracks or dents. I cannot get rid of this screen distortion no matter what button I press. Wh

My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.


The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera
