Icons & Playback OK but no image when trying to shoot
L830 viewfinder has full assortment of icons and can playback photos, but is just a black screen when I try to shoot. Help!
Released by Nikon in January 2014, the Coolpix L830 is a compact digital camera designed to provide powerful zoom with simple operation.
Hi @valleyvu ,
By viewfinder I assume you mean the LCD monitor?
Try taking a photo, (I realize that you cannot 'see' what you are taking) and download it to a computer and check what the picture is like.
If you have a good picture then there is a problem with the motherboard passing on a new picture onto the LCD monitor.
If there is a black image for a picture then there is either a problem with the camera's CCD sensor or the motherboard or both.
Has the camera been dropped at all or gotten wet?
