Why is my screen black?

When i turn on my camera and engage the lens- the screen stays black. I cannot see anything that I am pointing at. When focused in on light on ceiling- i could see the light and take a photo- but when I focus on anything else- screen is black. When i take a photo- the photo is a black screen. I have removed the lens and cleaned both surfaces. Still black.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It seems the Nikon 1 (I have the S1) lenses have a problem, when they don’t get used for a while,

the aperture does not open anymore. Whether it is the aperture leafs getting stuck, a contact problem

with the body, or anything like that, it seems to happen to all of them. I surmise this is why Nikon stopped

producing or repairing this series.

I am still trying to find out if there is an aftermarket repair at a reasonable cost, or there is another reason.

In my case I will be buying a new battery, and have already cleaned the contacts on the body and lenses 1

0-27.5 and 30-110, and have blown the dust and other things out of the outside contact ports.

But until now no difference, which is why I will buy a new battery to try that out.
