I tried to shoot the solar eclipse with an X-ray film about 1 foot away from my FE 320 olympus camera. Thereafter the pictures display was reddish in colour for a while. After about 2 hours the display went blank. All the buttons are responding, menus being displayed but the display is just black and blank. please suggest.

The display on my Ixus 500 has gone blank. It started to show weird colours when switched on but turning it off then on returned the display to normal. I knocked the camera the other day and the display is now blank both in camera mode and picture review mode. The camera makes the usual noises when selecting Menu etc. It also save picture to the memory card. Is it worth taking it to bits to look for a loose connection?

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?
Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it. ... Canon Digital Cameras

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

Mirror locked up at 125th or slower and infill flash does not flash. At faster speed it works fine. The display on top of camera goes virtually blank and battery display flahes a sif it battery was exhausted. If shutter release is pressed again then camera goes back to normal 'ready to sheet' mode.As flash is synced to 125th I suspect that the flash is the problem (or maybe it is just coincidence) I have tried cleaning, used lenses and put in a brand new battery. Any clues?
