Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Trying to replace the lcd display on my Olympus sp-550uz. How to remove the back. I have all the screw out and it is being held by something I can not see between the usb port and view finder?

Answers :

After all screws are removed, then gently pry apart the camera. There are plastic tabs that hold it together and will need to be pried apart. The screen is held on by a metal frame that is glued on, the lens can be pulled off. There is a ribbon connection cable that attaches screen to circuit board that can be pulled in and out.
There's a friction clip inside. It keeps things from sliding around. From the area of the case that starts to open, gently work your way around with a small screwdriver or something firm & thin. Don't pry too hard, just enough to slowly work it loose. When it releases, the case will practically fall off. When you put it back together, it will lock itself back into place.

Black screen The screen is black when I turn the camera on, both on the flip out screen and if I use the view port...and yes, the lense cap is on.

Sony DSC-F717 I have a Sony DSC-F717 camera which has worked well(except for the incredibly slow record time in TIFF) until now. The camera stays dark as if the shutter is stuck. I can turn the camera on, see the readings(battery, memory space etc.), view images previously recorded on the memory stick ? but not see anything through the lens, either on LCD or through the Finder. Is something locked up or stuck and how do I unlock it?

When I turn my camera on I only see a dark blue and black image with white lines running through it--could I have damaged something or have I messed up my settings? I can look at previous pictures taken, they look fine, I just can't figure out why I can't see anything through the view finder or LCD monitor in order to take new pics. i have been reading through the manual, tried new batteries (regular AA)--any suggestions?

I have an early version of Meade Telescope's Capture View binoculars that takes pictures. However, I can not get it to properly communicate with either my older XP version computer or my current Windows 7 64bit computer. According to meade, no drivers are needed for the XP. When I open my computer icon I do not see the binoculars and this is true no matter which USB port I use. Any suggestions?

You need to make sure the binos are working and that your ports are working. If you look at control panel - system - hardware then scroll to the bottom it should show your available usb ports that windows knows about. If we can't rule any ... Digital Cameras

Verticle Lines When I turn on my camera, all I can see in my view-finder is many lines, almost like a multi-colored bar code. Sometimes this occurs after trying to take the first picture, but most of the time there cannot even be a first picture. When I attempt to snap a picture with the lines in the view finder and then 'recall' that picture, it is only the lines.

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when the camera is powered on but I cannot see anything through the view finder or on the screen and no image is captured when a pic is taken. I changed the batteries and it made no difference.

I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
