Grainy LCD display
\015 I just bought the Canon SD1100 and the pictures that are displayed on the LCD screen are very grainy and have terrible color quality. When I take a picture, the picture looks great. Is there a setting that I am missing or is the LCD screen defective?\015

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

Camera repair The LCD display is white with red lines going through it. Even the viewfinder does the same thing -- white. When I hit the view button, the same thing sometimes. It seems to do worse outside. You can faintly see the pictures I took in the LCD display. Now the LCD display is totally black. What's wrong. The menu display still works. What can I do?

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

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor

LCD replacement Sony MAVICA MVC-CD400 I have cracked the original LCD display and want to replace it. It is fairly easy to get to and remove, but I can't find a way to buy a replacement. I cannot find a parts list from Sony or elsewhere on line. THe better parts places might stock it, but they don't call it an 'LCD display' I did find "optical device" at 2 parts places, but neither one has a picture of it so I am not sure that I am buying an LCD or maybe a CCD or even a Lens assembly. does anyon

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

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
