The LCD viewer is made up of the LCD screen, and the backlight. Your backlight is burnt out, or the circuit board isn't sending power to it. Backlights can be replaced separately.

September 9, 2007 3:56 PM 39 thumbs-up.png 1 thumbs-down.png Hi, Please forget the above findings of mine. I just realized that it is a feature of the camera when it fails to focus on an subject for consecutive 5 times, the lens will intialize itself and out put on screen a message: INITIALIZING LENS CANNOT FOCUS.

I just got the camera defective like conditions of yours. Tried to find help on the web and came across this site while testing on the black screen camera for not more than 45 minutes.

I have the instruction manual, but never flipped a page on it yet. So how the heck do I know about that 5 times things on focus as mentioned above. BECAUSE I got the stupid camera working right now with the real time image on the screen.

If you want to follow my way to try fixing it yourself, keep reading and do it at your own risk. You paid several hundread dollars for the camera and I just paid $20 for it. Therefore, I tried everything I can to make it work, even if I had to open the camera body to play with the inside. Fortunately, it was not neccessary to take it apart.

Once again, AT YOUR OWN RISK to follow my way to get back your real time image screen.
Read the following steps once and make sure you understand before action.

(1) Load your camera with a freashly recharged battery.
(2) Switch on to see if it's working and still without the real time screen.
(3) Switch it off, and hold it tight in you palm with the LCD facing inward.
(4) Now, with you palm up, you should be able to see the model name 'CoolPix S6' under the lens and the flash.
(5) While holding the camera and aiming at the 'CoolPix S6', raise your other hand with the fist next to your ear.
(6) Match the aim as describe in(4) to the aim of your elbow 's protruded part and make pratice moves. Yes, you'are going to smack it
to your elbow.
(7) When you are ready, try first not to hit your elbow too hard once.
(8) Switch the camera on to check. If you have the 'Screen' now, congratulation! If not, repeat (4) to (8) but with a stronger impact
Force. You might have to try more times until your elbow could not take the sore.

I got mine fixed by performing the above steps just once, but I started at a medium impact force. Before this fix, I tried to whack it on both sides, the top and the bottom to my knee cap.

Why I chose knee cap and elbow? They hurt if you strike too hard. The target is to apply enough impact force to shake but not break the parts inside the camera.

Good Luck!!

My camera turns on and shows the menu icons on a black screen. I can take a picture, and the flash works, but nothing is captured. After I take the black picture it works just fine, though.


Please contact your nearest Nikon Dealer the connectors of the Screen at the back are loose / happens sometimes, as far as we had the Problems (owners of Photo chain stores) Nikon always regarded is as a Guarantee Replacement.

I have the same problem this guy had: I have a Sony Cybershot 8.1 megapixels. Every once in a while the screen will turn black when I turn the camera on. The display will come up (shaky hand, flash, etc.)...


The camera either has a stuck aperture inside the lens or a bad CCD sensor.

The aperture is the opening that allows light to enter the lens. If it's stuck closed no light goes in, so no display on the LCD and solid black pictures. The way to fix it is to replace the lens. You can try tapping or banging the camera on it's side on your hand or even gently on a table. This might unstick the aperture for a short time, but it will just stick again later.

If the CCD is bad the sensor won't show anything other than solid black, or sometimes purple/pink smeared lines. Again the solution is to replace the lens assembly, or look for a used CCD online and just switch that out instead.

Hope this helps!

Please go the operator control panel. Touch the icon that allows you to select full color, single color black and white. Select black then go to the :additional functions button located to the right of the screen. It is a "hard "buttin as opposed to the on screen "buttons".

My phone is not working. i will turn it on, and i will get the regular screen, but then if i try to go to use the phone it will get a black screen, or if i try to send a text it won't recognize the phone...


Malfunctioning phones often have black screen issues, take it to the store and exchange it for a new one. There's usually no fix even for technical support employees at the store, so the phone swap is more than likely free.

Screen is black


Eagle 23: Press the "Disp" button and your LCD screen will turn on right away.

nazmil_mj: Can you take pictures or are they totally black as well? If you can only take black pictures then your LCD screen is fine and your CCD is bad or your aperture is stuck. Either of these means you need your lens replaced.

Don't bother asking a store for help (though you can if you like) they will tell you it's not fixable or will just send it to Canon and charge you $175 for the repair.

We are an affordable digital camera repair business, we can replace your lens for about $75!

Top screen has black spot


A black spot means the top LCD screen is cracked / broken unfortunatelly for you.

If you are technically inclined you can buy a replacement in any online store and replace it by yourself but its a bit complicated as you practically need to carefully dissasemble all the unit to do that and would need at least some skils, a special thomson 3 windings small screwdriver (sometimes the same store sells it) and small blade and philips screewdrivers. You can find a video and instructions to do that over the web and decide if too difficult for you.

Good Luck...
