Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera ?

Display & photo limited to a diagonal bar

\015 I've had a period of where the photo display & the actual photo is limited to a diagonal bar that is about 1/2" that runs from the lower left to the upper right of the view screen. The rest of the screen is black. If I zoom out, the bar widens to the point that the viewer is covered with the view, however, to get a photo, I'd have to stand in the next county. It is not currently doing it. I don't know hwy it started nor why it stopped doing so, but it sure was difficult to deal with when it happened.\015

The fix was simple: The automatic lens cover wasn't opening all the way when I powered up the camera. A simple tap on the lens cover corrected it.

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

In my nikon d50, after I take a photo (when it displays) on the screen), it is covered with a semi-transparent menu of details about the photo. Not a histogram, but a text display with items like the date the photo was taken. Or it displays 4 small numbered thumbnails. When I click enter, I zoom. I just want the REGULAR display mode.

In playback/review mode of photos, only some appear while others are blank. All photos are present when uploaded to the computer or displayed at a photo kiosk, but only intermittent photos can be reviewed in playback on the camera itself. Why is it skipping the display of some photos? My camera is a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1. Thank You!

File error Hi After taking about 20 photos, I went back to view them & the last 6 had disappeared showing only a blue screen & file error on the display. I then took another picture which was there for the 2 second delay, then when I went to view it, it had disappeared. I took 2 more photos today & both are currently still there when I view, however, 1 has shrunk to a tiny square in the middle of the display!

I have a Kodak Easyshare model dx5430 digital camera (5mp). It has worked like a champ for years. Last night I was at an event when the image display went dark at picture 31. All preceding photos were able to be reviewed. The camera flash works fine. The camera displays all the other characteristics of a working unit. It turns on and off; the flash works, the menu is accessible - everything. It just doesn't register any photos. Even in close-up mode, there is nothing. It's as if the lens cap is

Importing Images Hi, When we take photos on our 500D we can preview the photos on the screen. When we place our Camera card into the computer and try to import the file they say that it is not a supported mode. Displaying the image number for example as IMG_0135.CR2 usually they will display CRW_0135. Is there a solution ?


The CR2 suffix means that the picture was taken in the RAW file format, a proprietary format. This requires that the images be processed by a software conversion to be 'readable' by the computer.

My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W150 no longer displays older photos on my camera. It now only displays ones taken since 1/1/2011. When I check on the computer they are all there. I would like to delete some older photos from the camera as I have run out of space to take new ones. I don't want to delete the more recent ones, including some from Christmas. Any ideas? Lynda

However, the display has failed several times and has been repaired by Canon who admits that their displays were made by another manufacturer. Well, the display is gone again!

X-tian--Canon will replace the CCD sensor for free if that's really the problem (see ), but in that case why would Donzoni say Canon had replaced the *display*? Unless he's confusing them, of course.\015\012\015\012Donzoni--The fact that you ... Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
