Live Monitor is not working

\015 The Nikon D90 Live Monitor Screen at the back is not working correctly, or rather it is showing a rainbow of different colours instead of showing previous shots or the MENU when pressing the MENU Button. Suspect it may be due to the camera body being "knocked" around - alothough it has not been dropped or suffered any "hits".\015

Answers :

You guessed it right. I also think there can be a firmware(software) failure. You can try a Factory reset option of your camera. If that doesn't work, I don't think you should do any more experiments since its a very delicate and sensitive and EXPENSIVE instrument. Please take it to the qualified technician in that case.

Please rate me appropriately if you are satisfied with my answer,in case, if you want any clarification please get back to me.

We have a new custom build PC from Data Doctors for personal use with Vista 7 and have a Samsung SyncMaster 191t monitor that was previously used for gaming and had a DVI cable. We bought a VGA cable but the Samsung monitor just says Check Signal Cable. We also tried using a VGA to DVI adapter, but that didn't work either. The monitor didn't even say check the signal cable then; only the green monitor light kept flashing. Is there a setting inside the SyncMaster 191t that would be previously set

I live in Sydney, Australia. I have two S-AV 2050 projectors. Previously working OK. Each has 2 lamps (24V), rotary voltage selector in base for 250, 110, 130, 220V. Now when I switch on, fan works OK, but no lights come on. All 4 lamps are OK (very low resistance). Looked for wiring diagrams (needs model), but could not find model number. Rating plate gives serial no and says (in part): Projector Type J 920752. The other says: Projector 798702. Can you say why it's not working?
