Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My camera was dropped and now the screen is cracked. it still takes photos however you can not view the photos or see the menu. Is there any way of fixing this problem?

Answers :

Sounds like a cracked LCD screen. You may be able to fix it if you can find a replacement screen. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement. Don't recommend that you try this yourself, unless you have some experience and are comfortable with electronics.

Otherwise, the cost of professional repair is usually beyond the value of this camera. A better option is to sell the camera on ebay for other repair hobbyists to attempt replacing the screen for themselves. You actually may get a good price for the camera IF it's still capable of taking pictures.

My Canon G9 has a problem, where everything functions normally, except the viewing screen is black (the functions and menu show up though), and when you take a picture, the image is black. I can still play back photos before this happened and see them on the camera with no problem, but cannot take new photos. Any thoughts?

Look inside the lens while the camera is on - check the iris to see if it's open. It is similar to the iris in your eye. When the camera is in low light, the iris should open wider. Sometime the iris can get stuck due to moisture. Leave it in a dry e ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

Intermittent problem The camera works fine for awhile then the 4-way selector suddenly will not change the menu. Or it gets stuck on full flash or no flash. The selections may get mixed up. The review won't activate except for the last shot sometimes. Then if you leave the camera for a couple of days it seems to fix itself. Everything is fine then suddenly all the troubles come back. Although it gets messed up like this you can still take photos with it and you can use the other modes usually to

I have a canon powershot sd1100 IS and bought it on ebay back in the fall. I havent had any problems and it was in great condition. One night I went to erase some pictures before going out- the camera was fine. About an hour later, I took the camera out of my purse and when I turned it on I saw the screen was white whether I went to take a picture or view one. I can still take pictures and load them on my computer but I can't see what I'm taking because of the white. Is there a way to fix this?

After almost two years, pictures taken with my Nikon D80 are showing a black dot in the middle of the photo. You can't see it in the view finder and it shows up on all the pictures I take regardless of which lens I use. The mirror inside the camera does not have the black dot on it either. Is it a problem with the sensor? How can I get it fixed?

Canon powershot sd 890 will not load photos after installing Norton 360 from comcast. Comcast says that Norton can NOT cause a problem with camera photo loads even though I see that other people have the same problem. I get a ding ding sound, no pop up for me to select photo load option. I even went to explorer and tried to manual connect camera that way and no luck. UGH!!!

Solve your problem by getting a card reader. ... Canon PowerShot SD890 IS Digital Camera

When I view my card in the camera, I see all my photos. When I go to down load them using different programs, besides Kodak, it shows that some of the photo are "drawing failed". Is the problem with my camera or my memory card? Also be advised that when I first got the camera (about 7 months ago), I never had any problems. This type of problem has occurred within the past two months. That is why I am not sure if it's the camera or card.

It's much more likely to be the card than the camera, but it could be either.Try removing all of the files from the card, then reformatting it. Using an external card reader to reformat would be preferable, because it removes the camera ... Kodak Easyshare Z812-IS Digital Zoom Digital Camera

I have a canon powershot SD200 digital elph camera. The metal piece on the back of the camera which moves the camera between functions (view photos to shoot video to take photo) no longer works properly all the time. Also, the clicker wheel that moves through different menu options or moves through photos being viewed doesn't always work. Are these problems repairable, and if so, where/how/at what approximate cost?

This question for my MEMOREX Digital Photo Frame (10" MDF1071) I am having problems viewing my pictures. I am a pro photographer so I am technically savy in preparing the photos (I have photoshop). This Digital Frame will only show my vertical photos that are under 300kb, all my horizontal photos it will not diplay. I can see the thumbnails of them all, but not all of them in the slideshow.

We have a Canon SD1100 IS. We wanted to take a photo, but the screen is black. We took a photo anyway and tried to view it and it does not come on the screen, and the screen is still black. We tried the DISP button and that does not work in this case. Everything else seems to be ok. We can see the other photos we have taken. Do you have any idea what is wrong with the camera or where we can take it to have it looked at or fixed? Brian Anderson

I got my Canon a590 this past christmas; since then, every so often, it will not show any image on the screen. All I can see is the menu options. Every time I want to take a picture, all I get is absolute black. However, I can view pictures on a memory card with no problem on the main screen. The last 3-4 times this happened, the problem usually went away within a few days. I've tried replacing the batteries, but to no avail. Is my lens bad, or is it due to a more intricate problem?

Your camera should still be covered under the one year factory warranty. I would go to the Canon website and contact them for a covered repair if I were you.\015\012\015\012Best regards,\015\012Bob ... Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera

My dimage z3 takes lovely photos, which appear on screen, only to disappear after a second with a 'system error' message. When I look at the 'viewing photos' option, a red triangle with an exclamation mark inside, appears. So my photos are on the camera, but inaccessible. I have had it fixed under warranty once for the same problem, but that has now expired. It is over 5 years old now

This could be a problem writing to the memory card. The first thing I would try is inserting a different card (SD type) as a test. ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z3 Digital Camera

The Monitor on my Nikon D80 does not show any image when I try to take a picture - The viewfinder is ok and the camera takes a picture ok and displays it for about 4 seconds on the monitor after taking it. I can view the Menu's and can View existing pictures ok via the monitor. Is there a way to switch the monitor off or on, tried the menus but cant see anything obvious.

You can switch it off so as not to show the picture after you take one.You cannot use the monitor to show images as you're taking them. The D80 does not have a Live View capability. ... Nikon Digital Cameras
