Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera ?

Blank screen in picture mode

\015 Hi, recently on vacation in Hawaii, my girlfriend was taking some pictures. She didn't like one of them, and tried to delete it. Well whatever button she pressed, you no longer have a picture display while taking a picture. The camera will still take pictures, you just can't preview before clicking. The screen is all black while in picture mode. You can still view pictures taken, and in memory, but not what you are about to take. \015\012 So my question is, which option was turned off? I have tried to go through the menu and home functions, and everything looks fine. Can you help me? Thanks,\015\012\015\012Carlos\015\012Carlos\015

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?

Our camera when you turn it on has a blank screen and you cannot take pictures. You can review pictures and see the different menu modes, but the screen is otherwise black.

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
