Could be a problem with the CCD circuitry. You will need to get it serviced, I'm afraid.

Looking for tips to clean a very dusty Canon EOS 350D I've just boughtoff eBay. The view through the viewfinder is very dirty with a couple of black spots and some dust and small hairs etc. The pictures themselves are clear so the sensor is fine, it is the opaque plastic bit through which the mirror reflects which needs a clean. This is the part with the seven little squares where the focus LEDs light. Also one of those LEDs (the leftmost) is not working and the next nearest ones are dimmer


If you know how to get the lens out, then it shouldn't be too difficult to clean it, but it is tricky. Having it serviced would be the best option. However, if the pictures are clear, i wouldn't bother much, as giving it for servicing would probably ... Digital Cameras

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.

Screen damage? no problems in two years until today after shooting several "best shot" in monochrome, then returning to regular shooting position in color. no drops ever and only gentle usage. I turned it off and put camera away, then on turning it back on, the LED screen displays one-third solid white, one-third grey and only one third (bottom) of actual image. it also has an odd black "lips" image across the middle of top half. various colored lines across the bright part.

That's normal for the D60. It works the same way SLRs have worked for half a century: you view and compose through the optical viewfinder, then snap the picture. The D60 lacks the Live View feature of more recent dSLRs; the LCD (not LED) display on t ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

My Finepix s5700 will not turn on even with new batteries. I slide the turn on button and the green led lights, but then nothing else happens.

My Canon Powereshot 200SX IS does not start properly. Display comes on but the lens stays closed inside and a led blinks. After a while display turns black, a beep comes on and the white text says: there is an error, try to start again. Starting it again brings exactly the same situation. Loosing the battery does not help either. Camera seems not to react to any control buttons. There has not been any any obvious reason for this, no falling onto the ground or any other impact.
