Black photos at nite with flash

It's very difficult to pinpoint an issue with what you've given here. Particularly since flash photography at night can be hit or miss anyway.
\015\012I actually wrote a review for Popular Photography & Imaging on your camera... You can read it here:
\015\012And while I really LIKE your camera, it does have its' limitations, particularly with the flash at night. It's small and not very powerful in comparison to a full-size/feature flash unit. Because of this, here's a few things you should keep in mind when you shoot at night with a flash:
\015\012Allow the flash enough time to "recycle". In other words, when the flash fires, it needs to replenish power to make another full-power flash exposure. If you're shooting images very quickly, you may not be at full power for each frame. The T10 has a flash-ready indicator, so make sure it's activated before you shoot your images.
\015\012Stay close- There's a thing in photography called the "Law of Inverse Square". Basically, this means that when you double your flash-to-subject distance, your light intensity is cut down to ONE QUARTER of your previous distance. The T10 has a very small flash, so this becomes critical for good images.
\015\012Be reasonable in your expectations. The T10- or any other camera-mounted flash for that matter, won't light an entire stadium or something that's more than 10 feet with your flash or 50 feet with a full-power/size flash.
\015\012If you're following these guidelines, and you're still having issues with dark images, try upping your ISO to a higher setting to add some sensitivity to the sensor. Doubling your ISO cuts the light required to make a good exposure in half. If you've done this and the images are still black, you may want to take the camera to a repair shop for evaluation.
\015\012I shot several photos that should be included with the story on POP's web site, so you can see that the camera IS capible of shooting some nice flash image, but again, were done with an understanding of the camera's limitations.
\015\012Hope this helps you out!

Hi.my daughter's Panasonic DMC-FZ7 has gone dark through the view-finder, and all the photos and videos that she tries to shoot are likewise totally black. While photographing yesterday, she paused to gently clean the lens. All photos since then have been black.

Can you give any guidance about what is likely to be the problem, and what we should do

Black photos When I turn on my camera (Nikon Coolpix S5, I believe), I can access old photos and see the symbols that are usually on the screen when it used to take photos. However, if I take a photo with it, it is just black. The camera flashes and acts like it has taken a photo. There is no lens cap, so that is not the problem. Is the camera simply broken?

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work.

As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

Canon A560 camera problem - the images are overexposed. I checked the exposure setting, AWB, and all other settings and they are all normal.

Indoor photos are overexposed. Flash pictures seem OK. The picture on the display is OK. I compared some macro photos taken a few weeks ago with macro photos now. The good photo
