\015 The camera appears to function ok when the LCD monitor is wide open but when it is moved to about 1cm from the closed position buttons such as FUNC, MENU, & DISP etc and the zoom become inoperable; the mode dial goes out of synch with the display which changes from "auto" to "video".In other words the camera can not be fully operated with the LCD monitor in the closed position.\015

You camera needs a professional diagnostics and repair service.
\015\012The LCD screen assembly has two different position switches, may be one or both are failing (flas contacts internally).
\015\012Other possible reason for it is a false contact in the cables and connectors that attach the LCD screen to the main board.
\015\012Bottom line, if you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, you may want to fix it yourself. otherwise, I do recommend you to have a camera repair technician in fixing your camera.

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off.

Lens Problem I just bought an Olympus C-8080. While switching the camera on there are some 4 to 5 light pixels on the display (lcd monitor on the back of the camera), even when directing the camera into the dark. It is not really a problem now, but do you also have this problem with your LCD monitor? What if they become more?

Dead pixels are a nightmare of every LCD screen. There is no way to avoid them - you can just hope they never happen to you. There is no pattern to how they appear and when, but the ones you have will stay for ever. If they bother you right now, send ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

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

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off.
