Answers :

The camera requires partially dismantling in order to fix this. if you cannot do it yourself then you will have to take it somewhere but be warned it wont be very cheap. If you live in new zealand i could do it for you however unlikely that is.

A85 Dead During a normal session, switching from picture-taking mode to view mode, the lens would not retract and the picture in the view froze with the current image. I could not turn off the camera. After a while, the batteries got very hot, so I removed them. I took out the CF card. Later, I replaced the batteries and the put the card back in. The camera worked very briefly, but the LCD view would not work, displaying flashing lines on a black background. New batteries didn't help. The camera

Camera Freeze Sometimes when I snap the shutter, the camera frezes, a very small red light quickly flashes (which is located to the right and bottom of the LCD on the back of the camera), and in the LCD there is the following display: D: 3C85 To clear the camera, I have to turn it off, then back on. Often it will do this several times in a row. The odd thing is, it does take a picture as the image is stored on the memory card. Help!

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures. The mixture of colours on the LCD only shows when the camera is set on take the picture... and it doesn't even do it always. Thanks.

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.

Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera

PV-DC152D CAMCORDER, LCD Display only works if it is pulled out, turned 180 degrees and pushed back into place so the display is facing you. If you move the LCD display over 3/4" away from camcorder it will go black again. Personally, I think this is an issue with some sensors that gauge when to turn on the LCD display "ON" and Viewfinder "OFF" and vice-versa. Any help on this would be appreciated since there is nothing else wrong with the camcorder.

The most likely problem is a cracked ribbon cable that goes between the camera and the display. The cable needs to be replaced. Typical cost for this is around $40 or so plus labor. I would not suggest that you attempt this repair yourself as open ... Panasonic Digital Cameras

Lcd panel I've just bought a new canon eos 350d and the lcd panel will not show the image of what I am taking a picture of. I can take a picture, and display it back on the lcd panel but just not display what is in the viewfinder when I want to take a photo. Have I got a setting wrong somewhere or is the camera faulty? thank you!

Fujifilm A330 My camera is doing something rather strange; it's always switched on by sliding the front shutter open all the way, and it's ceased turning on when I do that. My dad and I figured out that we can get it to turn on by holding the 'on' button in the back, but it won't get out of the menu/blue 'no image' LCD display for reviewing pictures. In the past, holding the 'on' button was what changed it from picture review mode to picture taking mode, and since everything has swapped around t

No image on LCD screen, only irregular lines of varied coloring. When picture is snapped, it is of these lines--no image. Help. Details: I turned the camera to shooting mode but it does not display the image of what I want to shoot, but just a series of horizontal lines. If I take the shot, it shows the lines which were displayed on the LCD screen. If switched to playback mode, previously shot images show up fine. I checked the batteries; they were fine.

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

LCD monitor does not light up, and consequently, does not display any image (as some other digital cameras do) during the aiming and focusing processes - sort of prescanning the image - before the shutter is half-way then fully pressed. In other words, is the LCD monitor designed soley to display image review (playback) and show menues!

Actually the reason is due to the way an SLR works. The shutter doesn't open up to the CCD device (the digital equivalent of the film) until you press the shutter release button to take the shot. Until then, an angled mirror points the viewed image u ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.I realize this probably wasn't ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
