Having problems with your Pentax Optio S50 Digital Camera ?
LCD Display Blank
\015 Hi,\015\012When the camera is turned on, the LCD diaplay screen is blank (dark) and just displays various information icons for batterly level, megapixels, quality, flash-on, etc. When I try to take pictures, the same is not possible as LCD screen does not display anything. However, it does click and take pictures - which are nothing but black squares. \015\012\015\012However, the LCD screen works fine when used in preview mode for the pictures taken before the problem started.\015\012\015\012Thanks for your response.\015\012\015\012Zarir Shroff\015

Blank lcd I just got a new canon 600D. After playing with it for a while, i turned it off. Then after 5-10 mins i turned it on once again, and opened the lcd screen, but it shows blank(or say black). I can see that the lcd backlit is workeing, but nothing (no content) is displayed. Can this be an issue of low battery ? pressing the shutter button full also not capturing the picture. Flash works though, and optical view finder too, but it does not capture the photo.
