When I turn on my camera to take a picture the display screen is completely black. If I try and take a picture nothing comes out. The whole picture is completely black.

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,

Sony camera turns on but screen is just bright white, can't see the images I'm taking or the menu. I can press the menu buttons and can tell that the buttons work because I hear the beeping noise.

Blurry lenses Same problem exactly. I'm not sure what happened (maybe sand in the camera?) The camera now turns off to a black screen, If I push the botton to see ast pictures, the screen works again and lets me see through them. But If I go back to "take picture mode", the image they give me is all blurry and if I try to use the zoom, the camera turns off.


This sounds like you have gotten some kind of contamination inside the camera, it is blurry because the lens can't move to focus the image in a smooth manner, it is sticking. U can try taking this apart but based on my experience this is best left ... Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

Nchatta Hello, My Canon s45 was working perfectly until it was dropped from a very very small heigh in a soft leather case with protection. The camera works in the sense that it can read and display the images from the SD card perfectly, the lense extends but you cannot see anything on the LCD when wanting to take a picture bar a white box in the middle that usually turns green once focussed (but now doesn't.) The screen is just black. The shutter clicks, takes the picture, but just a black LCD

Dark photos I am a new Nikon user and have the D80. This is way more camera than I will ever need. I can not take pictures without them being dark not even in the auto mode. This is inside or outside I have two lenses and have switched them and it's still dark. I was able to change the exposer to get them lighter but would think you could take pictures in auto that would be fine.

Hi i have a Canon Powershot A610. I have a loose wire, I think in the screen or the body of the camera, not sure what the problem is.

Why is my olympus e420 taking green tinted photos? I bought a new camera which I received yesterday, and it was until earlier, but has suddenly started taking yellowy/greeny tinted images. I've tried changing the settings, I've changed the camera modes, I reset the settings altogether and even changed lenses and yet the camera still takes tinted pictures, inside and outside. Also, when I switch the camera to live-view mode (shows exactly what the lens sees) it shows pretty much an entire green s

I got my camera around January 2008 but I haven't gotten to use it for around a year and a half. This is the first time I can try to fix it due to costs and other problems. I think the camera is having CCD problems because I can't take pictures without them being black but I can see previous pictures just fine. I've heard that repairs for this sort of thing are expensive especially once the camera is out of warranty- with luck, mine happens to be out of warranty. How can I fix this? And if I wer

Blurry pictures My canon Powershot A95 digital camera is taking very blurry shots. At first i thought it was the LCD but the old pics taken are viewing fine, the ones I take now are all blurred. I think maybe it has something to do with the lense.


Wipe off the lense with a clothe or something, that might be the problem. Or if you move the cam too much when you are trying to take a pic, that also mighht be the problem. If not, I have no idea. ... Canon IXUS V2 Digital Camera

You only know after you take the picture.

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take.

I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx
