"LCD screen is black when trying to review pics"


US
          

I recently purchased a 7100 and have only shot a few pics. The first few days were fine, but today I find that the LCD screen is black. I cannot view my pics or see the pic that was taken. The camera is recording that a pic was taken. What setting did I mess up???????

Pressing the "info" button should activate the LCD so that you can see that the screen is working.

The camera can be set to display the image immediately after is take, or not do that to save the battery. (/menu/playback/image-review)

If the image-review is set to off, you can press the playback button to see the last image taken.

Maybe the image is completely under-exposed? Have you accidentally put it on manual and dialed in 1/8000 shutter speed or something like that? If you did then you'd get a black image even on a sunny day.

BTW, add a speedlite with high speed sync on an 8ft light stand into the mix and you can turn (under-exposed) day into night like this:



It's an awful picture - just to demonstrate the effect. You can see she's squinting in the sun.

Sorry for going off-topic if this wasn't the problem!

First thing I checked was the lens cap, not the problem . . . this time!!!! LOL

LCD screen is working fine, just can't see or review pics in anything but Auto.

Exposure . . . this very well could have been the problem. Will have to investigate, thanks.

JFWIW - Do you actually have pics when you download to computer? Or just blank or black images?

Something similar happened to me, or so I thought. Turns out it was self inflicted, as I had used an EV setting of -3 the day before, and had set that EV by depressing the EV button and rotating the main command dial, a method which leaves the EV in place even if the camera is turned off. I distinctly remember reading that in the manual, but I think I now have a much better grasp of the concept.
