Verticle Lines When I turn on my camera, all I can see in my view-finder is many lines, almost like a multi-colored bar code. Sometimes this occurs after trying to take the first picture, but most of the time there cannot even be a first picture. When I attempt to snap a picture with the lines in the view finder and then 'recall' that picture, it is only the lines.

This is a CCD or main processor failure.\015\012Nikon will advise repair or replace. ... Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

Hi!! I inherited a Konica Dynax Maxxum 5D it takes great pictures, but I can't figure out how to get the LCD monitor to show the picture I am taking...it is on a blue screen with functions and settings, but I can't find where in those settings to change it back to seeing the view by looking at the screen, I always have to look through the view finder to shoot a pic. Hope you can help, Thanks a lot, Cath

To see the picture you want to take on the screen, your camera needs to have a feature called "live view". I'm not sure if your camera has that feature. It's a relatively new feature on more expensive cameras. Check your owner's manual. ... Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Digital Camera

I just received a Cannon Rebel for xmas and it was taking pictures just fine then it wouldn't autofocus and take a clear picture. I do not know if I accidentally hit a button when holding the camera but I cannot get it to take a clear pic. It also flashes a busy signal across the top of the viewing screen when it is flashing. I tried to find the fix in the guide, but nothing helped. Thanks!

Take it back and get an exchange- it's too early in the game to be getting error messages. It shouldn't be flashing busy, unless it's having trouble writing to a faulty card, or some other obscure defect. If it's too inconvenient to have it exch ... Digital Cameras

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!

The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Finepix A800 The LCD Monitor has a frozen skewed kalidoscope type image on it. It is impossible for me to remove it or to get anything brought up such as the menu, or to view the couple of hundreds of pictures that I have taken on it. It is possible, still, to load the pictures from the camera to the computer, but that is all that I can do. I cannot manually delete any of the pictures from the camera, since nothing shows up on the monitor except for that frozen weird design. It will still take p

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.
