Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera ?

What is wrong on cameran everything works but the screen is completely black

Answers :


This is a common problem. his is either due to faulty CCD \015\012sensor or faulty LCD screen. Look at the previous recorded images or \015\012videos. If you see the same black problem in previous saved images or \015\012video's , it would be suggestive of LCD screen unless it is a faulty CCD\015\012 sensor.

If that is LCD panel, it is not worth repair.If that is \015\012CCD sensor, then you could call up Panasonic to check whether CCD sensor\015\012 of your model is under recall or not.

Read an old article :-


If it is not under recall, try to get some good replacement or repair at low cost unless invest in new camera.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!

Black Screen ive got a black screen when i take pictures; everything else on the camera works. the menu's pop up; the pictures ive taken show on review. but the actual view doesnt show anything and is completely black so whenever i take a picture its just all black. i just got this camera for christmas and it hasnt been dropped or exposed to liquid. it doesnt show a lens error number either; because i dont even think it knows it has one.. its just black though.

I have the exact problem. I came on slowly, some days it would work, some days it wouldnt. Finally i couldnt get it working at all. Sent it back to Kodak as it was still under warranty, the repair center claims it was "physical damage". They admit th ... Kodak Easyshare M753 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 Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen.

Only in the manual mode the image doesnt show, and the pictures also appear completely black. The menu shows sometimes something as if the exposure were less than -2, but even though i change the values for everything hig

Black screen When I try to take a picture all I can see is a black screen. I cannot see wht I am taking a icture of. Everything else on the camera works and the pictures turn out great I just can't get them centered because I am guessing as to where I am focusing in when taking the picture.
