My scream is black with the cap off - Olympus SP-500 UZ Digital Camera


Answers :

Just to the right of the button that raises the flash is a button labelled |O| or similar, and this toggles between the screen and the viewfinder. You might have accidentally touched this and now get a black screen while the viewfinder will be displaying the pic you're about to take. Press once to toggle back and the screen should return to life.

There is a good chance that the iris is stuck shut. Try tapping the side of the camera lightly to try and release it. If the camera can show you old pictures that are currently stored correctly, I would suspect the iris.\015\012\015\012 ... JVC Digital Cameras

Screen problems My Olympus FE-4000 12 MP digital camera with 4X wide angle optical zoom was working fine until one afternoon when I went to take a picture. The camera was never dropped into water, or exposed to heavy outdoor elements. The problem is that the screen in general has some white patches and two large black patches over it so you can only see a small part of the image. My question to you is, what seems to be the problem, and how can it be fixed? There is no damage to the outer surface

I have an Olympus SP-550UZ digital camera. It was dropped onto the floor & now the LCD screen & the view finder are black. I took all the screws out of the back to repair it, but the back panel will not come off. I do not have any covered screws around the view finder. There is a screw under the flash which I can't get to. Any suggestions?
