Hi. My name is*****’m a camera repair technician with over 20 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

If you are lucky, this is just a settings issue. If the camera has a "Review Time" setting, make sure it isn't set to off.

If this is a technical issue, it is possible to change the LCD without too much trouble, (but then I'm an experrienced tecn\hbician).You may want to check locally for a camera repair shop in your area, or, if you need assistance finding a shop, please let me know and I'll locate one for you.

Can't see a "review time" setting, after trying changes in settings a new set of pictures showed from card and now can not get old set of pictures from card. pressing trigger lightly get low light message and can not see an image. seems to be worse now think I need a shop!

I think you are right. It sonds like the diaphram is stiooing down way roo much. You can check it by setting the camera to manual or "A" for auto and setting the apertore wide open. Yhen look down throgh the lens to see if the diaphram is open or not.

Hi. This is Rick again.

The problem you are experiencing is a faulty CCD Image sensor. These can be replaced but it will take a technician to do so. I'll include a link below to a directory of repair shops, one of which should be in your area and able to help you.
