When I start a slideshow I get a completely black screen. If I leave it for a little while, then click on the black screen, I go back to the Lightroom screen and see that the slideshow is working because the selected photo on the filmstrip has progressed from left to right.

I have a saved slideshow that works perfectly every time and another that works sometimes (I think worked once ). I cannot see any reason for the difference.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi Wildman, my first guess would be an issue with the graphics card driver. Have you checked the manufacturer's website for an update lately?
