Sony camera turns on but screen is just bright white, can't see the images I'm taking or the menu. I can press the menu buttons and can tell that the buttons work because I hear the beeping noise. But I can't see anything. I also try to take pictures and I don't think it is taking any pictures because when I plug the camera into the computer nothing new shows up on the memory stick.

My eos400d is taking photos but the lcd screen is not turning on at all. I cannot preview photos or access the menu. When it first did it the cf card started flashing wen I tried to take a photo. After taking some more photos I got a full cf card message. I deleted photos using my computer as I cant see anything on the screen but the lcd screen still wont come on. I have pressed the disp button also but nothing happens.

Yesterday I downloaded successfully, as usual, my pictures from the camera into the computer. I made 7 more pictures last night. Today, I tried to download them, but the computer had a "non recognizable files" message. I restarted the computer (a Mac OSX), but now it wouldn't even detect the camera! I tried to see if my 10 years old pressed a button on the camera by mistake, and, after I press the "format" button in the Menu I lost even the images in the camera! 1.

Coolpix L5 was functioning perfectly until today. Now it boots normally, focuses normally when the shutter button is partially pressed, but does nothing when the button is pushed all the way down. It will not shoot stills or video or even self-time a still shot. It behaves exactly as if the actual shutter release button is broken and doesn't make contact at the full pressed position. New batteries, memory card, resetting default menu settings--none of these help. It's running firmware 1.0.

White Screen Ever since a few nights ago, my camera has been showing this white screen. The funny thing is, that I can see the menu and other options perfectly. But when I want to take a picture, the screen is pure white, and even the pictures I take are absolutely white, and sometimes with a light grayish circle in the middle. I don't know why this is and I just bought this camera around the fifth of january and it was working perfectly fine then. Please help me?

LCD Display I haven't used my canon for a while - I've just turned it on and though the LCD display works to show pictures I've taken and the settings screen - I can't see anything in it when I take a picture (it's just black) when I press the Disp button it just switches from a black screen to the settings screen - please tell me what I can do so that I can see the image in the LCD before I take the picure.

When I put the camera on I can see the pics I have stored on the camera although I have to scroll through a black screen for 3 or 4 clicks first. When I switch it to take a picture I just have a black screen with some of the menu showing. I reluctantly recharged the batteries even though I didn't have the battery low warning and it hasn't helped. Can you help please? I also did a reset to default by holding the menu button.


Please see the following comment: ... Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

When I switch on the camera all functions work but I cannot see anything but a white screen. Seems as if a shutter is not opening in order to take a picture. If I press the button to take a picture it works but cannot take one as cannot see anything.

White Screen Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

When pressing the power button, the shutter opens, the lens comes out, the screen comes on for about 2 seconds. Then the screen turns off, the lens goes back in, but the shutter stays open. I let someone use it and this is the condition it was returned in. I'm not sure if it was dropped or anything, but I don't see any external damage.


Look closely for sand particles that may be lodged around the gaps of the lens barrel. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or th ... Kodak Easyshare C182 12MP Digital Camera

I have a Pentax K200D and I dropped it from less than a foot high on a rock (archaeological site) and now it won't take any new pictures. I can see the old pictures, I can see the menu and info but when I chose an option (like manual or sports) the information does appear on the screen. Also, when I take a picture, it seems to focus right, take the picture, but when I visualize it, it is completely dark... Finally, the flash won't come out if I press the button. Please help me!! :S Thx

I have a Pentax *ist DL2 camera, which I bought second hand on ebay, but from a very lovely, recommended seller, so he wasn't having me on. But recently, every button I press seems to set the shutter off and it makes the clinking sound as if your taking a photo. However no photo is taken and the LCD screen is constantly **** on, although not showing any preview or menu. Also, nothing is showing out of the eye-piece so I can take any photos or do anything without the shutter going off when a butt


Take off the lens and fire off a few shots. Does the mirror flip up? Or is it permanently up? Does the shutter open? Can you see through the lens? This "lovely, recommended seller" may have unloaded his problems on you. ... Pentax *ist DL Digital Camera

I dropped my Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 and now the lens won't come out. It turns on and all but it just tells me to turn it off and on again, and it won't let me look at the menu. the circles in the lens are closed and it's pitch black looking at the screen and I tried pressing the shutter button once I turn it on and it just says to turn it off and on again. Also 2 times this occurred, when I could see with it but everything was still blurry and the lens opened up a little but just those 2 times.
