My canon power shot A95 has a black screen when in shooting mode, like the lens is totally blind, all the other functions look normal. Camera was OK until I installed by mistake ni-metal hydride batteries, but the problem continues after replacing with alcaline batteries.


Sounds to me like your CCD was damaged. The CCD is the "chip" or "brain" of your camera, so to speak. The only way to fix this is to have the CCD replaced. But first you should find out about the cost, which may be similar to buying a new camera. ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

Black LCD Same issue. Powers up fine but lcd is black. Looks like it "sees" a little light around the edges but that's it. Takes black pictures. Can still see old images fine. It's like the camera went blind.


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very b ... Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

There are lots of white lines on my photos. It doesn't seem to matter what the setting is, flash or not, and I've replaced the batteries which are new. The lines go accross each picture like a venitian blind. The picture looks fine when displayed immediately after being taken, but the lines are there when I display and scroll through the pictures. I have a finepix fujifilm e900 digital camera.


Then unfortunately this is a problem with the image sensor on the camera. It would cost more to fix than to just purchase a new one. If you do go for a new one please recycle the old one at a location that takes e-waste. Sorry for the bad news. ... Digital Cameras

Hi, We bought a Sony DCR HC62 Handycam last month. Twice now while recording a video, horizontal gray bars appear on the display screen breaking the image up.

We have tried Sony tech support which is an absolute joke (they sho

I only had the Minolta DiMAGE G400 for one year before it started having issues. The photos have a gold-ish tint and look like there are lines through the photo (like horizontal blinds). It started all of a sudden and not because of any trauma to the camera. At first I thought it was a setting, but I can't figure it out. I hate to throw it away if there's something that could be done with it.
