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

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on ... Canon PowerShot A550 Digital Camera

My Nikon d70s does not take a picture. It only shows a pixelated color mosaic on the screen (back view finder) as well as when it gets printed. Very swirly-colorful bar image. This just happened. No dropped camera or change in environment. Kept in case. Can any one help? Thank you.

No image Hi, My DSC-F717 has been sitting unused for 2 months, but in safe place. When I turn it on now, everything works perfectly except there is no image in either the view finder or the display screen, almost as if the lense cap was on! All of the settings are sown in on the display but other than that the screen is black. When I try to film something it's the same, I get sound but but just a black image. I live in the Caribbean and don't have access to a Sony repair place so hope you can he

When I try to take a picture, the LCD displays a lot of colorfull squiggly lines instead of the scene that I want to capture. When I turn it ON, the Zoom lens extends normally, then the colored lines appear with the following settings on the screen. Auto, 1M 178, ISO 400, ! plus a hand icon, AUTO, 4, F2.8. No matter which mode I choose, the same thing happens. Looking through the EVF shows the same thing. Note; I can view several good pictures that I took before the problem showed up. If I

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

When trying to take a picture the color is off. It shows a purple tent on the screen, but there are old photos on there that are shown in normal color. It suddenly switched to giving everything the purple tent and has grainy lines going across the screen. I have tried to reset the settings to see if that would help but it hasn't. I haven't tried to upload any of the photos with the purple tent to see if they come up normal colors on my computer. Thank you!

There's no way for you to fix this. You have the classic signs of a failed ccd unit. There's nothing you did to cause it and nothing you could have done to prevent it. All you can do is to return the camera to Panasonic for repair. If the ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 / DMC-ZX1 Digital Camera

Faulty Lens? Sometimes when looking through the LCD screen the colours appear blended, overlapping and blotchy which makes it difficult to get a clear view of the item to be photographed. upon turning on (sliding open lense cover) screen view is distorted, "stretched", and item to be photographed is almost unidentifiable. Camera operates but pictures taken are "stretched" and distorted. However, stored pictures can be retrieved and are normal. Any advice?

I have an Olympus SP-550UZ digital camera. It was dropped onto the floor & now the LCD screen & the view finder are black. I took all the screws out of the back to repair it, but the back panel will not come off. I do not have any covered screws around the view finder. There is a screw under the flash which I can't get to. Any suggestions?

There's a covered screw in the center of the adjustment knob on the view finder. Probably that's the one holding the back. ... Digital Cameras

Black screen Yesterday I grabbed my camara for a not to be missed shot and found that I too have the same problem now of the black image through the view finder and on the lcd screen. I have replaced the batteries, tried changing settings and nothing works. I too can see the icons and view previously taken pictures but can take no new ones.

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.

You probably got some condensation on the lens from going in and outside. You should be able to go to a Wolf Camera or similar store and have it cleaned. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

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. Changing the batteries and the CF card makes no difference, and loading the photos on Adobe Photoshop shows the same problem on the computer screen. This just started yesterday after we downloaded a bunch of photos from the came

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder, all i get is a completely black photograph.
