Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T3 Digital Camera ?

When I switch on the camera the LCD screen shows a smudged image at whatever it is pointing at, please advise?


Answers :

Do you have it set for closeups? Mine has one and it's placement made it easy to hit by accident just pulling it out of the case,

So I shoot all the beautiful pictures, including mule deer, in the wenatchee state forest in the mountain range onyl to find out, when I got home and saw them on a larger screen they appeared blurry and smudged.

How far is the image from you? Try a closeup on a flower, if it clears up you know it's switched.

Otherwise clean the lense with a lens kit.

The iris is probably shut closed or the CCD is bad. The iris controls the amount of light that enters the CCD (charged coupled device). Sometime the iris get moisture inside and cannot open. Or the CCD is defective. Leave it in a dry environment for ... Samsung i85 Digital Camera

I have just bought a Lumix FZ18 camera (July 08). It worked perfectly on all settings at first, but has now developed an apparent fault in which it shows an overexposed image on all settings apart from automatic. When the shutter button is partially depressed, the image in the viewfinder or on the screen shows as normal, but when the shutter is activated it immediately reverts to over-exposed and the resulting image is the same. Can you advise please

No image on LCD screen, only irregular lines of varied coloring. When picture is snapped, it is of these lines--no image. Help. Details: I turned the camera to shooting mode but it does not display the image of what I want to shoot, but just a series of horizontal lines. If I take the shot, it shows the lines which were displayed on the LCD screen. If switched to playback mode, previously shot images show up fine. I checked the batteries; they were fine. I replaced them anyway, to no avai

The tech support person, Hemantraj, asked good questions, and determined that the camera needed a CCD imager circuit replacement. He suggested that I contact Kodak directly about repair. I did, and have mailed the camera to Kodak for repair.Tha ... Digital Cameras

When I turn on the camera the LCD screen no longer shows the settings. I can still take pictures and it shows the image on the LCD screen, and if I hit menu screen shows. Did I push something I wasn't supposed to?


That is just a setting. It turns off the lcd to save battery or when you want to just use the optics for sightiing/focus etc. Should be one of the menus that show up when you hit the menu button. You should be able to set it off as it is now or have ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera

My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off. After cleaning the extended lens barrel each time it extended, I found it would open further each time. It nows extends fully, but still retracts immediately thereafter. At the time the screen shows the green Optio screen for a split second and then shows an out of focus shot of whatever the camera is pointing at, bef

Nikon Coolpix L18 camera LCD screen only shows jumpy lines of images. Took a test picture and viewed through a card reader to find that it is recording images, so the problem is just in the screen. (Also installed fresh batteries.) Camera has been working faithfully on a regular basis. Worked just fine a few days ago. Hasn't been dropped or suffered any 'trauma'.

Blurry images I purchased about a year ago a new Panasonic DMC-TZ4. And up until this point, I was in love with this camera. However, just recently, sometimes when I turn the camera on, the screen is showing images to be out of focus and blurry. All the settings are correct. Some times it stays like this for hours. Other times, I can turn the camera off and then back on and the blurriness goes away. Twice the camera has frozen and I had to take the battery out. And some times when I turn the cam


Sounds like a lens problem. If you've ever let the camera "auto turn-off" as a power-saving measure, any button pushed will turn it back on...even if it's in a case or your pocket. This puts strain on the lens as it tries to come out...result....lens ... Panasonic DMC-TZ4 Digital Camera

It seems to be a dead pixel, best thing would be to have it replaced from the Seller, else you can get it replaced with a new working lcd panel. This may be an expensive solution.Check whether you have a worldwide warranty from Canon, that will help ... Canon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Camera

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.


This sounds like CCD sensor is faulty and should be replaced . Camera works fine in playback mode generally with this problem but not in capture mode ( camera has gone 'blind'). Should be repaired free of charge if the camera is as old as you say. ... Olympus FE-170 Digital Camera

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?


Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
