My olympus FE-280 will not turn on. I put in a fully charged battery and when I press the power button the light on the back blinks red and the lens opens and closes about four times before completely turning off. While this is happening there is a slight buzzing noise and the screen stays black the whole time. Is it a bad battery or is my camera broken?


There are many sides to the fault but it seems that you have a serious one. The camera needs to be opend to confirm the fault and so it needs experienced hands. The possible fault could be failure of the electronics, maybe the shuter drive, the lens ... Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

My camera only has a black screen. Battery fine, checked all settings, no camera lens capon. Acts like there is a camera lens cap on, completely black. However, put in another card and can see pictures taken. I have reset it numerous times.

Olympus C-4000 doesn't complete the power up cycle. It goes fine until the number of pictures taken appears on the bottom left for one second. At that point the screen is black and then everthing goes black. The motor whirs for a couple of seconds and the lense barrel stays out. No buttons have any effect. I've put in fresh batteries.

Dark LCD I have an A70, about a year old. The problem is the LCD screen is very dark. It is almost completely black unless I point the camera dirrectly at light.

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.


Sounds like a loose LCD connector. It does not sound like a image sensory problem to me. You will have to disassemble it , remove the connector cable then replug it back into the panel and that should do the trick. However I suggest that you take th ... Digital Cameras

When I put the camera on I can see the pics I have stored on the camera although I have to scroll through a black screen for 3 or 4 clicks first. When I switch it to take a picture I just have a black screen with some of the menu showing. I reluctantly recharged the batteries even though I didn't have the battery low warning and it hasn't helped. Can you help please? I also did a reset to default by holding the menu button.

My Sony 7.2 Cybershot camera recently ran out of battery, so I charged it. Once it was done charging, I put the battery back in. The screen showed up asking me to insert the current date and time, so I did so. Next, the zoom lense went out and in, out and in, and out and in while the screen said "Access". Next, it told me to turn the camera off and on again. Nothing happens when I do so, and I've done it about 10 times to no avail. Is this a fixable problem?
