the camera actually belongs to a co-worker. Symptoms: No viewfinder, no rear LCD. Camera appears to focus and you can hear the shutter fire, but no image in viewfinder or rear screen. won't even play back images already on card. Screens light up and show settings, but no feed from the sensor. Tried various settings, LEDs flash, no photo. Pulled the battery and card, no joy. I can't find anything on-line dealing with a problem like this. suggestions?

One thing you might try. If you can see the menus, go to the Setup Menu, then go to the selection called RESET. You can go into this menu and reset the Record settings and then the Setup and Custom parameters. If this does not work, it sounds like a repair shop visit is in order. Hope this helps you.

Reset probably won't help

Reset only returns the menu option to the factory defaults. There aren't any options that would cause this problem. Sounds like a service issue. Just curious, where are you located?
