\015 My FE-230 shows no image on the viewingscreen......it has been working great and the battery is charged. Everything else still seems to be working......what might be the problem?\015

Answers :

It sounds like the LCD screen got bumped and is bad. You can replace it yourself, with a little patience if you want to order one on ebay. They're around $25. There are articles on the net about how to replace them, in case you try yourself. I wouldn't have a repair shop do it, since they charge around $125, and you can buy a new camera for that! Good luck!

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

Nikon Coolpix L18 camera LCD screen only shows jumpy lines of images. Took a test picture and viewed through a card reader to find that it is recording images, so the problem is just in the screen. (Also installed fresh batteries.) Camera has been working faithfully on a regular basis. Worked just fine a few days ago. Hasn't been dropped or suffered any 'trauma'.

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?


Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

My Canon A95 has horizontal grid lines on the lcd screen after a photo is taken. The view on the screen is normal when you are framing the photo but after you take the shot the playback of that scene has these grayish horizontal lines and the image color is washed out.

This just started yesterday after we downloaded a bunch of photos from the camera
