Turned my fuji finepix camera on today and the screen remains white and I get no image of the scene in view. The batteries are fine and all the remaining functions such as menu items all work fine. The camera sounds exactly normal when it starts up but there is simply no image on either version of the viewfinder. Have replaced batteries and taken memory card out and in again.any help available please. Thanks


The iris may have stuck closed due to moisture or the CCD may be bad. Let it dry out for about a day if the iris is stuck. If you still can't get an image, then more likely the CCD is bad - take it in for repair. ... Fuji FinePix S5500 Digital Camera

When I turn it on, the images don't appear on the screen. Everything else on the screen is fine (ex: when I go into menu, the menu appears normally on the screen, when I press the flash button, the flash appears on the screen...)But the images from the outside world don't. Instead, there's either just black, or fashing black and white.

My husband has a Canon DS6014. I would like the screen on the back of the camera to show what the lens is looking at as I am taking pictures (as opposed to looking through the viewfinder). Right now, the screen remains dark unless I am reviewing pictures, or am in the menu. I've looked through the menu options and cant seem to find way to make it happen. Can you help?

My Canon A95 has horizontal grid lines on the LCD screen AFTER a photo is taken. The view on the screen is normal when you are framing the photo, but AFTER you take the shot, the playback of that scene has these grayish horizontal lines and the image color is washed out. Changing the batteries and the CF card makes no difference, and loading the photos on Adobe Photoshop shows the same problem on the computer screen.
