Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My digital Rebel XT screen has stopped working while taking photos. How did I turn it off and how do I rectify the issue. Thanks


Answers :

Hi

Your camera doesn't have 'live view' so you can't see what you're taking pictures of before you take the picture, you can only review them after you take the photo.

In the camera settings there will be one for how long the image is displayed after taking a picture, you can access it by pressing "Menu" then scrolling down to "Review" and setting the time you would like it to display.

Keep in mind you can't take photos one after the other quickly if you have the review mode turned on!

Hope this helps,

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo with flash black lines appear all in the photo. I've tried finding a reset button, but nothing has been found. As I said, it takes photos, but I need the LCD screen to take a photo so I can see if I messed up and should take more. I'm a photographer and I got this camera as a side kick to my DS

White screen Hello, I have a Fuji S5000 Digital Camera that has never caused me any problems. I was using both the movie and photo functions this afternoon when, all of a sudden, the EVF/LCD screen turned white. I have removed the batteries, turned the camera on and off and have reviewed the troubleshooting information in my manual. At this point, when the camera is turned on, all I see is a white screen. If I try to take a photo, the camera will take a picure, but when I go into playback

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it.

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow.
