The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another
From your description you would be further ahead to buy a new camera, you stated there are no repair shops where you live, and to send it away would be expensive probably costing more than a new one. The only other option is go on ebay to price a new ... Digital Cameras
Someone accidently held a magnet over my old Sony DSC-T1 it no longer has an ability to take pictures. Just a blank screen. The old photos are still on the memory card I tried replacing the memory card and that is not the problem. It was a small magnet for a board. The screen still works in terms of being able to review the old photos, but when the door is slid down and the camera turned on, there is no live image.

The camera still takes pictures, but the screen doesn't work...you can't see what you are viewing with the camera. Can you replace the screen? (We actually have 2 cameras, and the other camera doesn't work anymore, but the screen is still good). Is there any way to swap the screens?

Seriously confused... It was only 6 days ago when I went to my favorite photo-outlet to have my S2 CCD-chip cleaned. One of the main 'cons' of my camera is the amount of dust that is sort of living nowadays behind the viewfinder and the LCD screens. It rather bothers me that a piece of equipment -at that time costing about 2600,- euros- is that sensitive for external influences. But anyway, camera still works fine and in some way it has become a part of me. So I was very enthousiast when the ann

I can't take any pictures with my camera. I get nothing on the viewer screen. I have some pictures on the present card that I can look at, but I have changed cards and batteries and still does not work.

My Dell laptop running Vista will not recognize my camera (Samsung BL103). The USB port works fine for other things, just not when connected to the camera.

I have a 4-5 year-old Canon Sureshot 3.2 MP (PC1037?)digital camera that has been extremely reliable. I use it for fishing trips primarily now. The viewing screen is now black and I am unable to take new pictures, other than black pictures. The menu still works and the playback of prior pictures still works. Question is whether to toss the camera or do you have a quick and inexpensive fix for this second or third camera in my collection. Thanks.

My Canon A430 Camera got a bit wet when I fell into a Dam this weekend. The camera did not at all touch the water, but a few drops of water did land on the camera. After drying the few drops off, the camera still worked for the whole day as well as the whole evening, but the next morning the camera did not work. The green light above the screen on the top left does flikker when the camera is turned on (which is normal). I am even able to take a photo and the flash works. Through all of the the s

Broken screen I had the camera in my pocket and I bumped into a bench as I was walking by and the screen on the camera no longer works, it lights up, but only shows up white, It still takes a good picture, cause when I view my camera card, the pictures are there, Only I can't see anything on the screen when I take the picture, So I have to guess when I shoot a picture, Can I replace the screen myself?

My camera was dropped. The LCD screen is black with two small crack lines on screen. There are some light vertical lines but no image at all (in camera or playback mode). Zoom moves.

When I turn on my camera, all I see on my screen is a blank white screen with two large black blobs running from upper left to lower right. The same screen appears when I try to preview past shots. My menu won't work either. Any clues as to what's wrong? I carried my camera in my right back pocket before this happened and I may have sat on the screen without knowing it.

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a cheap generic one and it still threw the same error. I then thought maybe I needed to use an original Sony battery. I tried one of them and it still isn't working. It will come on for a second and the screen will show but then it throws the error and turns off. Is my camera toast??..:-(
IT'S FIXED!!!..:-) I'm not sure exactly what did it but I tried a little of everything. I tried taking the battery out while holding the power button then I tried taking a picture in that brief moment before the error would appear. I would get it to ... Sony DSC-T70 Digital Camera
Olympus FE-210 I dropped my Olympus FE-210 when it was on and the lens was out. Now, the camera still workes fine, but the lens will not close all the way. After I shut it off, it opens and closes as if trying to fix itslef, but tops after three tries. The zoom still works, but it makes a clicking noise as the lens adjusts. I wouldn't mind any of this, except that now I can't upload my pictures. Normally, when I hook up the USB, a screen comes up on the camera dispaying my options. Now when I ho
