My Olympus SP-560UZ USED TO take good pics, and when I look at older pics taken on the rear LCD screen, THEY look fine. However, when I look at real time images on LCD screen and/or take new pics, everything appears "smeared". When I look at new photos taken on LCD screen, or even transferred to computer, it's even WORSE...just one blurry mass of swirling colours. The camera hadn't been used in a month, and just sat in a closet for that time, so WHAT could have happened to it?

I have a Canon Sure Shot 115u II Date 35mm Film Camera. No manual. How do I fix the blinking icons on the LED screen? There are a series of dashes along the top of the screen. They look like a place for the date, as in 03 03 10. Tried to get them to stop blinking by pressing the "DATE" button. It made a noise, and then another icon started blinking as well. This is the one that looks like a roll of film looking down at it from the top. The camera had just been loaded with fresh film and n

My husband has a Canon DS6014. I would like the screen on the back of the camera to show what the lens is looking at as I am taking pictures (as opposed to looking through the viewfinder). Right now, the screen remains dark unless I am reviewing pictures, or am in the menu. I've looked through the menu options and cant seem to find way to make it happen. Can you help?

The lcd screen on my Norcent Xias DCS 860 digital camera isn't working. It shows a white/blurry screen. It seems to be taking pictures ok. I uploaded some random pictures I took to my computer and they looked fine. It's just the screen that I look through to take the picture.

Hello, I have been given a very old model of this camera for use in a workshop with street children. The screen is out of focus and all the pictures come out blurry. When I look at the screen without any pictures on it looks like grainy like it is a really bad resolution. Is the camera just too old? It also gives off smoke when the flash goes off! If possible could you get back to me asap. Many thanks, Kate

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

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting? Thanks in advance for any help!!!


That's because the Nikon D40 does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that effectivly deflects the light path to the v ... Nikon D40 Body Only Digital Camera
