Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Samsung VP-D353i camcorder and since I used the Nite Shutter to film in darkness the other day, it will no longer allow me to record hardly anything at all. All I can get on the viewfinder is a bright white screen and when I try to play a tape back, I can only get any sound on it with the viewfinder pulled out, but then I get no picture as it's still all white. I read somewhere that the charge coupled device might be damaged? Can anyone help please?

I just purchased an Olympus x-42 for my daughter to take on a one-week exchange program to Mexico. She just emailed to say that her viewfinder screen is now white with dark "splotches." I noticed someone else on this site had a similar problem but didn't see any solution. I need some quick answers so that she can get some shots of an amazing week! Thank you.


Hello. The most common causes of this problem are 1. dust on the lens which appears as splotches on the screen and 2. moisture under the screen. The fix for #1 is to carefully and thoroughly clean the screen using a piece of lens paper. The fix ... Digital Cameras

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

"overexposure" The problem arose after I visited a botanical garden and went from cold outside weather to high temperature and humidity conditions. The next day I found that the image through the viewfinder and lens appeared vastly overexposed, nearly all white. If I focused on an object, the exposure would return to normal, but the picture taken was shot through all over with fine white lines, making it indecipherable. The exposure through the lens and viewfinder has now returned to normal, but

My canon powershot a95 display screen does not show an image when I am trying to take a picture. The image that is displayed is black with white lines and varies in the amount of black and white. No matter what setting I turn to, I can not get the image to appear. It had been working fine till a couple of days ago. It has not been dropped. I get the same result when trying to view a picture of a card. Is there any way to reset the camera?

Troubleshooting problems I have a canon powershot s60. I tried to take a picture earlier and the screen is completely white. The camera turns on, the battery is fully charged and there is nothing wrong with the digital card. THe camera wasn't dropped nor did it get wet.

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.


Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I was taking pictures outside using a tripod mounting and had my Fujifilm FinePix S5000 on in photography mode - Auto mode. Upon placing the tripod for a new photo, I observed that the LCD monitor had turned white with intermittent horizontal flashing black lines.

I should point out that in Playback mode I can view previously taken photographs perfectly on both the moni

I bought the camera in the UK but I have since moved to Portugal and have only now had a chance to get the new camera out. This, I know, is my fault. But, nevertheless, I can't get it to work - the LCD monitor remains black when shooting whatever I do. It will take pictures via the optical viewfinder okay but I cannot get the screen to show. It works to display the settings etc but not for taking pictures so that when I press the display button it alternates between the photo settings (which

Blue skies How do you get the camera to produce a landscape picture that has a pretty blue sky and a nice green background? Every time I try I can get one or the other. If the sky is blue with fluffy clouds, then the green landscape is too dark. If the landscape looks wonderful, then the sky is white and totally washed out.
