How can I fix the button that turns on the EVF and turns off the screen? It isn't working.


sir,
I don't understand your question!! how can we use EVF for this model in which it is not fixed from the company, the tilting type LCD is very clear and user friendly in this model.
some old models comes with EVF there may be a small switch beside the EVF. and in some models comes the switching options in the setting menu. if your model is like that you try it in the S-menu.

Have a fuji finepix S5600, but my lcd remains black even the camera is on! i can see the pictures i already made at the lCD. But LCD is not working if i want to make new pictures??


Hello, I think I know what the problem is..we'll see. On the back of the s5600 there is a button marked EVF and LCD(EVF on top LCD underneath) try clicking this button to see if your LCD screen becomes available, only one of these can be used at a time and the default for playback is the LCD screen. However if you have set it to EVF it will revert back to this format when you leave playback and try take new footage. I hope this helps and it is nothing more complicated. I have some problems myself and know how it feels. Alan

The rubber eyepiece on the EVF came off and we can't get it back on. Can you help?


I just fixed the same problem on my Z712 IS. I used an eye-glass repair kit because it has the correct size screwdriver to remove and replace the camera screws. I did not know which screws to remove so I just removed every screw I could find. Be aware there are two screws under the side panel that says "7.1 mega pixels". I was able to replace the rubber piece and put the camera back together. It turned out to be easier to fix than I thought it would be. Good luck.

LCD screen won't come on when camera is on. Does this mean the backlight needs to be repaired. Brand new camera!


Does the electronic view finder (EVF) work? Of course you tried toggling the EVF off so the screen would come on right???

EVF is dead


It's a known issue with both the A1 and the A2, and is caused by very poor design of the strain relief to the flexible circuit board which eventually cracks. If you open the EVF you'll see a small piece of blue or yellow tape on the pcb just where the damage occurs: this was clearly Minolta's pathetic attempt to prevent the problem.

There is effectively no fix for this as the only way ro repair it is to replace the pcb and to keep costs down Minolta made the EVF flexi pcb an integral part of the entire pcb which snakes it's way deep into the camera. If only they'd redesigned it as a separate replaceable section then things would have been easier. You'll notice that Minolta omitted the tilting EVF from the successor to the A2, the closely related Dimage A200.

The best you can attempt to do is to peel off the rubber eyecup (it has a tendency to tear, so be very careful) and then remove the two screws from the underside of the EVF. You'll then see part of the EVF pcb. Note that there are actually two pcbs layered together, one does have a joint in it, but sadly it's not the one which has broken. You'll see a red and a black wire connecting to a plug which attaches to a socket mounted on a side spur of the broken pcb. The blue or yellow tape I mentioned earlier will be stuck to this spur (ignore the second piece of tape right near the EVF lens). Now set the selection switch to the EVF position and turn on the camera. By carefully and gently manipulating the broken area (the break is usually microscopic, so don't expect to see the damage) you can usually achieve a position where the EVF lights up. You may need to apply more tape or some folded paper packing beneath the pcb to get the EVF to remain illuminated, and usually will need to give it umpteen attempts so be patient. When it stays illuminated, reassemble and gently fold the EVF back down. You'll often find that you have to repeat the job a few more times as the action of moving the EVF back down upsets the "repair". Once it's down, and the fix appears to be stable (i.e. it doesn't black) out or blink every time you touch the camera) then carefully glue the eyecup back on and use your preferred method to stick the EVF in it's parked position. I use thin double-sided adhesive foam jointing tape: if you live near a modelling shop or know a radio control modeller, ask for a piece of thin servo tape.

The bad news is that this repair will not last and that you'll have to either learn to love the LCD panel or resign yourself to regular re-fixes, but eventually the damage progresses until beyond repair. For the same reason, if you replace it with a used example, go for the A200 instead. It has the same lens and many of the same features as the A2, although ditches many of the useful manual switches in favour of menu-driven settings.

If you are lucky enough to actually obtain a complete and unused flexible pcb then expect three things: 1. it will cost more than the camera is worth; 2. it will cost far more than that to have it fitted; 3. it WILL fail unless you stick the EVF down permanently as Minolta never revised the design. You probably won't find the part though as Minolta pretty well exhausted the spares supply whilst making repairs under warranty.

The same fault occurs to pretty much all cameras which have articulated displays, whether EVF or LCD and is why top-spec cameras aimed at professional users omit this feature. Pro's want reliability and give their gear a hard time, so articulated gadgetry is a liability.

It's a real shame as the A2 was otherwise my near-perfect all-rounder. In my case I only encountered the problem after buying a broken A2 for spares (just for the rubber eyecup and a few minor parts) and just a few weeks after investing in the rare, expensive and vital BP-200 battery grip. I've stopped using mine altogether now as I simply cannot get to grips with composing on an LCD panel.

Sorry this isn't all good news, but hopefully you'll find my posting to be of use and will be one of the lucky ones whose DIY fix lasts. Feel free to ask me for further advice and please don't forget to rate my answer.

My s5000 screen is all white in record mode. It breifly had a picture then when I pushed the shutter it went white again????


Does the EVF work? The small view finder above the LCD screen. You can switch to it using the EVF/LCD button on the right side above the main display. If it is okay then you'll likely need a replacement LCD.

NEED TO CHANGE PHOTO RESOLUTION


■ Number of pixels
Select a higher number of pixels for clearer
pictures when printing.
Select a lower number of pixels [ ] (0.3M
EZ) to store more pictures. Fewer pixels also
means it is easier to send pictures by e-mail
or use them on a homepage.
■ When the aspect ratio setting is
[h]
DMC-LS75/DMC-LS70
(7M)
3072 × 2304 pixels
DMC-LS60 only
(6M)
2816 × 2112 pixels
DMC-LS75/DMC-LS70
(5M EZ)
2560 × 1920 pixels
(3M EZ) 2048 × 1536 pixels
(2M EZ) 1600 × 1200 pixels
(1M EZ) 1280 × 960 pixels
(0.3M EZ) 640 × 480 pixels

on the menu I believe the Panasonic calls it aspect ratio

How was EVF improved?


This camera is equipped with the TFT micro display which has about four times the resolving power (number of pixels) of past models. As a useful mode, it has "Quality mode" of 640x480 pixels (30fps) and "Motion mode" of 640x480 pixels (60fps). Quality mode: The high resolving power is the most important. The detail parts can be recognized, and it is helpful when the focus is checked. Difficult focusing on the past models can be easy without enlarging. Motion mode: It is for recording the moving subject. The same number of resolving power is displayed as the quality mode. However, as the pixels are interpolated from 640x240 to 640x480 in Motion mode, the image in the Quality mode looks better.

What are the main features of DiMAGE A2?


It has succeeded from A1's concepts, "Providing the more enhanced image quality," "Reducing the mis-recording," "Not limiting its users or scenes" and "Providing the unexpected satisfaction, pleasure and impression" from the DiMAGE A1. Compared with A1, it is the all-in-one type digital camera achieving not only the still image but the high quality of viewfinder and movie. - 2/3 type interlace scanning CCD with primary color filter and 8 million pixels - VGA-size with a high precision EVF (922,000 pixels) is loaded to check the focus more easily. Compared with A1's EVF, about four times the high precision display is enabled (A1: 235,000 pixels). - Depth-of-field preview - Movie recording function of 544x408 size with 30fps - USB 2.0 support (high speed mode) which can transmit large data in high speed - PictBridge support Furthermore, 3D AF to track the movement and keep focus on the subject and anti-shake compensation functions inherited from A1 are also loaded.
