Olympus X-42 Camera - the screen has gone white (with a few thin green/purple vertical lines). When I switch on the camera the screen is white, there is no picture or menu displayed. I have checked by plugging it into the tv, and it takes pictures and goes into menus fine - it just doesn't display anything on camera screen. I have only had the camera for a week, and have not stored it anywhere humid. Is there anything I can do to fix, or do I just have to take it to get repaired?


There doesn't appear to be a solution. I have had to send mine off to be repaired. They don't provide a camera case but it is a very necessary piece of aquipment. I was told that the screen had been pressed. I can only think that this occured when tr ... Digital Cameras

White Screen Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

Blank screen My Olympus FE-170 display screen is white, rather than showing whatever the lens is pointed at (regardless what mode the camera is in). Oddly, icons display just fine and stored pictures can be viewed clearly on the display. This problem occurred without warning (it was not dropped or damaged) and the camera is just one year old. Have you ever encountered this? I?ve read the entire manual and can?t find anything on the problem.

My canon powershot a95 display screen does not show an image when I am trying to take a picture. The image that is displayed is black with white lines and varies in the amount of black and white. No matter what setting I turn to, I can not get the image to appear. It had been working fine till a couple of days ago. It has not been dropped. I get the same result when trying to view a picture of a card. Is there any way to reset the camera?

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

Coolpix L18: The LCD screen is broken; just displays a large black "blob" on a white background. Would this prevent all other camera operations? When the camera is turned on, the green power light flashes, but nothing else seems to work. Camera will "beep" when shutter button is pressed, but lens never opens. Is this a LCD issue, or are there other problems as well?
