Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera ?

Lcd backlight blown, poss. capacitor?


\015 Camera got wet and was operated before fully dry shorting something in the lcd circuit (there was a loud pop and the unit shut down). I've opened the camera and the lcd screen (which still works) and the backlight show now visible damage or signs of a short. I assume that a capacitor overloaded anyone with a circuit layout or instructions for disassemblyor any advice would be welcome! This is frustrating as taking it to be repaired would probably cost more than the camera cost me, every other function on the camera works perfectly.\015

Answers :

The flash capacitor witch stays charged for days even when your camera off has very high voltage on it and probably arched over into more that just blowing your lcd screen.

The top (monochrome) LCD on our Nikon D80 recently broke. I think that it is actually called the "Control Panel," and displays settings, battery life, number of pictures remaining, etc. Please note that this is not the 2.5" color LCD on the rear of the camera. I know that it is merely the LCD because the backlight works, as does portions of the LCD display itself. Does anyone know of a guide or video to perform this repair? Also, does anyone know the part number? I plan to call Nikon tomor

Otherwise the camera shows no sign of damage. Is it possible that the damaged LCD is preventing the camera from turning on? Is there a hard reset procedure I should try? I've t
