Black Screen I have taken really good care of my camera and it has never been dropped. I went on a Cruise a few months ago and one day into the cruise the screen wouldn't show anything. It was just a black screen. When I took pictures they turned out black too. I am still able to navigate the menus and see pictures on my SD card. Even after returning to Colorado, a dry climate, the screen is always black and taking black pictures. Is there something I can do to fix this problem or should I just

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

Prior to the above message, my camera displayed a message 'memory card error card locked' and I was not able to see view my photos. I took out the card to see if it was in a locked position to which it was not. Please help as I have vacation photos on this memory card!

When I turn on my camera, all I see on my screen is a blank white screen with two large black blobs running from upper left to lower right. The same screen appears when I try to preview past shots. My menu won't work either. Any clues as to what's wrong? I carried my camera in my right back pocket before this happened and I may have sat on the screen without knowing it. Is there any way to find out if my camera is still workable? Thanks. Bob Jenks firstname.lastname@example.org 561.694.8326

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
