Vertical stripes on digital camera lcd

\015 My sons samsung s860 digital camera has vertical stripes on display so you can't see what your photographing, Still takes photos ok you just can't see what your taking or taken til you download to pc. Stripes don't change for different settings or zoom. Removing and charging batteries didn't help.\015

Answers :

The fact that it takes the pictures ok confirms that it's not the ccd which has failed.

If the menus on the lcd screen are also distorted then it confirms that the lcd screen itself is faulty and this is replaceable. If the menus display just fine, then it's the internal circuit board which has a problem and replacing that is not normally viable.

Either way, the Samsung s860 is a budget model available for as little as £60 new, so even the most minor repair will cost more than replacing the camera: unless it's still under warranty (one year from purchase date) it's definitely uneconomic to repair. Samsung themselves wouldn't normally bother; a warranty claim usually means they chuck your camera away and send you a replacement.

I hope that I've helped, if so please remember to rate my answer.

My panasonic DMC ZS3 camera purchased on 12/14/09 has started showing vertical multicolored stripes on the viewing screen in all modes. The pictures captured by the camera do not display the same vertical stripes, which seems to indicate it is a problem that only affects the focusing screen. These stripes take up about 2/3 of the right side of the viewing screen. Do you know what might be affecting the problem? In addition the camera has never been dropped or mishandled in any way.

Ref: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Camera. The cover plate over the LCD screen cracked (left side). So far, the LCD display itself is not affected. Is it possible to replace just the cover plate without having to install a new LCD unit? If so do you have a part number for the plate? I understand that cracking of the LCD screen is a recurring problem with the Lumix series of digital cameras and also that Panasonic has taken a hard line r.e. guarantee coverage. My camera is 2 months old.

Blurry LCD Well, I have recently got a SD400 camera from dell.com. The first thing I noticed was the inaccurate LCD. The picture in the LCD seemed blurry(bad resolutoin, weird coloring) and inaccurate. But, after actually taking the pictures, the picture seemed perfect. (In the review mode and the display right after you take a picture.) Is this a problem? This is my first digital camera, thus I had no previous experience with camera LCD. Or is this normal, without flash, everything is suppose

A week ago I purchased a Canon Ixus 970 digital camera. When using in dark conditions yesterday, I noticed two bright blue dots on the LCD screen. I've switched the camara off and on again and have taken the battery out and replaced it again, but they are still there in exactly the same place. Is this normal for a digital camera? I've had a couple of cheapo's before but have never had this problem. So it seems a bit strange that I have these irritiating dots on a £200 camera. Shoul
