Blank screen My Olympus FE-170 display screen is white, rather than showing whatever the lens is pointed at (regardless what mode the camera is in). Oddly, icons display just fine and stored pictures can be viewed clearly on the display. This problem occurred without warning (it was not dropped or damaged) and the camera is just one year old. Have you ever encountered this? I?ve read the entire manual and can?t find anything on the problem.
This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say. ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

When I turn on my camera to take a picture the display screen is completely black. If I try and take a picture nothing comes out. The whole picture is completely black. The camera is still functioning as if it is taking the picture. The flash continues to work, but unfortunately no picture comes out. But when I switch to the display mode to view my pictures, I can see the old pictures from my memory card. But I just can not take any new pictures. What should I do? What do you think the problem i

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 95IS camera.. For some reason, when I attempt to take a photo, the LCD screen isn't displaying what is actually in view? In movie mode it comes up on the screen but when i flick it to Auto or camera mode, the screen goes black and only shows the little icons... Weirdly enough, it still takes the picture but the really annoying thing is it doesn't show up on the screen what you're taking a photo of so it makes it really hard for the person taking the actually photo... can

When I try to take a picture, the LCD displays a lot of colorfull squiggly lines instead of the scene that I want to capture. When I turn it ON, the Zoom lens extends normally, then the colored lines appear with the following settings on the screen. Auto, 1M 178, ISO 400, ! plus a hand icon, AUTO, 4, F2.8. No matter which mode I choose, the same thing happens. Looking through the EVF shows the same thing. Note; I can view several good pictures that I took before the problem showed up. If I

Powershot s410 My s410 is "old" :( but I love it and has been working amazingly over 10,000 photos in the 4 years I've had it. All of a sudden this week-end when I am in auto or manual mode the screen is black - I can't see what I am shooting. What is odd is that if I am in the panoramic mode or video mode the screen works. Even odder is that if I actually take a picture blindly (since the screen is black) it shows up on the display! Help... :) Thanks
Since it is taking a picture, and showing it up afterwards on the display, it definitely sounds like you activated the DISP or DISPLAY button. Seeing that you've used this camera for years, you should know that this manually turns the screen on and ... Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera
My panasonic DMC ZS3 camera purchased on 12/14/09 has started showing vertical multicolored stripes on the viewing screen in all modes. The pictures captured by the camera do not display the same vertical stripes, which seems to indicate it is a problem that only affects the focusing screen. These stripes take up about 2/3 of the right side of the viewing screen. Do you know what might be affecting the problem? In addition the camera has never been dropped or mishandled in any way.

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

I then took another picture which was there for the 2 second delay, then when I went to view it, it had disappeared. I took 2 more photos today & both are currently still there when I view, however, 1 has shrunk to a tiny square in the middle of the display!

The display on my Ixus 500 has gone blank. It started to show weird colours when switched on but turning it off then on returned the display to normal. I knocked the camera the other day and the display is now blank both in camera mode and picture review mode. The camera makes the usual noises when selecting Menu etc. It also save picture to the memory card. Is it worth taking it to bits to look for a loose connection?

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.

My DSC-H9 will not display stored pictures or video. When I push the button to switch from picture taking to picture viewing it shuts off. Changed battery, memory stick, did "reboot", pulled battery for 30 seconds. Nothing made any difference. I can plug in to PC and view or pull pictures off. It's like the mode button is also a power button.
