Black screen We are having the problem many others are having on this website. We were in the middle of our trip to Monterey this weekend when the screen went completely black and no more pictures can be taken. We could use the menu & could look at pictures already taken, so we have to conclude that the LCD is NOT the actual problem; however, we aren't sure why we can't take anymore pictures. We dumped all the pictures on the camera onto our computer thinking it might be "full", but still no

I have an Olympus FE-330 The problem I am having is when I take pictures at night, focusing on anything is impossible. The view shows black, until the picture is taken. After the picture has been taken it shows a great view of the picture in the screen. Even changing the setting to night, does nothing-it's black I honestly was thinking of replacing the camera for this reason, it is very frustrating. Other than that, it is a great little camera.

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.

The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have a brand new G12 and have used it for the past 10 days. I loved it until it would no longer take pictures. This is the problem: I turn on the camera and the display screen is black. I take a picture and nothing appears. However, I have no problem viewing previous pictures taken before this issue. Can you please help....I really want to love the camera, but I should not be frustrated after 10 days. THANKS
