When I turn the camera on and look into the view finder the sceen is wavy and does not show the images I want to record. The tape is VHS and appears to be moving but is not recording any images. The battery is new and is charged. I have tired to use the focus ring on the view finder but that does not make the wavy pattern go away or help focus on images.

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.

Focusing problem Until recently, I was able to look through the view finder and auto focus my image. Now, camera will not show me subject in focus, but after a I make a shot, image is in focus in the preview. Manual focus works just fine, it's the auto focus I am concerned about. I have cleaned the lens - please help!

Well, stupid me, I didn't realize there is a diopter adjustment button directly to the right of the viewfinder. I would NEVER have known it was there, but after asking my photo-nerd friends all of a sudden the solution was apparent. Still a wasted da ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera

I just got a Fuji Finepix S1500 and the viewing screen is showing a somewhat distorted image --- it looks like fine lines or minute color bleeds on the screen. In addition, when I connect the camera to the USB port of my computer it keeps saying that there is a "Power Surge to the Hub Port". Please help!

You are not supposed to connect the camera to a USB hub. Try connecting it directly to the USB port on the laptop or PC. Also, if the batteries are rechargeable and pretty much dead, the drain on the USB may be a bit much. Have you tried using fresh ... Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera

Focus problem when i look thugh the view finder (the eye lense) of my camara, the image is blurred. im wondering if this is normal?

It sounds like the eyepiece focus adjustment knob may just need to be set for your eyesight. There should be a small knob or dial with a + & - sign around it. This is the "diopter" which doesn't affect the camera's focusing, only how you see the ... Fuji FinePix S6500 Digital Camera

Unlike compact point and shoot cameras, Canon's range of EOS D-SLRs don't have the LCDs stay on all the time. The design of the SLR camera involves a mirror in front of the sensor. The mirror in its normal position inhibits the image to be captured ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

Try adjusting the diopter. There's a knob near the upper-right corner of the viewfinder. Turn the knob while looking at the viewfinder.See the "Diopter adjustment" section on page 39 of ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Digital Camera

Hi!! I inherited a Konica Dynax Maxxum 5D it takes great pictures, but I can't figure out how to get the LCD monitor to show the picture I am taking...it is on a blue screen with functions and settings, but I can't find where in those settings to change it back to seeing the view by looking at the screen, I always have to look through the view finder to shoot a pic. Hope you can help, Thanks a lot, Cath

To see the picture you want to take on the screen, your camera needs to have a feature called "live view". I'm not sure if your camera has that feature. It's a relatively new feature on more expensive cameras. Check your owner's manual. ... Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Digital Camera

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when the camera is powered on but I cannot see anything through the view finder or on the screen and no image is captured when a pic is taken. I changed the batteries and it made no difference.

I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

Viewfinder does not show image, just a few horizontal lines. It looks the same through the rangefinder or the foldout screen. Have checked batteries and memory card. Menu selections do show on the sides of the view when selected.

My Canon PowerShot S400 shows a blurred image on my screen, one that looks like streaks of light. As I pan the camera the streaks move, too. Sometimes, but not consistently, when I take a photo there are streaks on the resultant image, often greenish blue. Here's something else: When I turn the camera on, the lens opens with a series of small clicks, such as might happen if the lenses have been damaged in some way.

It is definitely a CCD issue. First of all how long have you owned the camera? I am guessing it is out of warranty so in most cases it is the best option to purchase a replacement as you will be able to get one twice as good for about as much as the ... Digital Cameras

Pink pictures the other day.... I was using my camera and it started showing lines through the image, the image quality was getting worse and worse.  I figured needs new batteries.  So I put new batteries in it and now it takes pink pictures!  How strange my evergreen pictures look in fushia color!   I tried and tried for a couple of weeks, I checked all the settings, even took the batteries out and restarted, but still pink!  all shades of pink!  Here's where it really gets odd, I got my camera

Bought in 2005 and have enjoyed its marvelous pictures. I put new batteries in, checked the ''all but empty card'' by seeing if it would download to computer; it did, no problem there. But, when I turn on the camera today the image in the camera's LCD shows what it sees with a quarter inch white bar at the top and flickers with a slow roll of the image viewed. The colors are also slightly off. I do not remember dropping the camera. I noticed that the screw plate on the bottom edge had one
