Having problems with your Casio Exilim EX-Z40 Digital Camera ?

No image on monitor

\015 Turn on camera - \015\012Monitor shows date, time etc in words but display is black, no image appears. If you try to record a photo it is also black. Shutter is open.\015

Answers :

Hello Jillnell,

This symptom may occur in cameras with an optical viewfinder. These\015\012cameras have a power save feature that turns OFF the display after about 2 seconds. Simply press the DISP button to cycle this\015\012mode OFF or ON.

If that doesn't help, then most likely it is a faulty CCD sensor. If it is under warranty, its best to get it replaced. You will have to get the camera serviced if it is not under warranty.

Hope that helps, and thank you for using FixYa!

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 display screen shows images very distorted like it is too bright and the image "runs" it's really strange. Almost like when you look at a heart beat monitor and it "spikes".
