Question about Leica Digilux 2 Digital Camera
My Digilux 2 recently just started to flicker on the LCD/viewfinder. It turns on fine, the Leica logo appears, and the picture remains normal for about 5-15 seconds. Prior, all I would have to do is take a picture, and it would clear up, no issues. Now, it flickers, then turns into a weird doppler-radar kind of thing, and the once normal view appears to almost "melt" down the screen, thereby becoming un-viewable. Just a mess of magenta lines, blobs, and flickering.
Any idea on what would cause this? I haven't dropped it, got it wet, etc. It does it with a full battery or a half-charged battery. Any help would be great.
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Thanks for the response! I actually sent my camera in a month ago and they promised to fix it for free...although it's a 4 month turn-around time. Still, better than buying a new camera!

Does the menu in the camera work?
You may need to activate some Postview function in the menu. If the camera takes pictures, you should be able to view them in playback mode. There could also be a Preview mode, which requires pressing OK before storing pictures. Preview/Postview should cancel each other though...

Testimonial: "Amazingly Prompt helpful particularly regarding Leica cameras as there are not many authorised service centres in India. Thanks. SK Pillai"
The Digilux 2 will work with any SD card, but bear in mind that SD cards max out at 2GB. Larger cards are actually SDHC cards and will not work in the Digilux 2.

Open the back of the camera.
**** the camera as if you were advancing the film.
While looking in the back, push the shutter release, like you were taking a photo.
You see the mirror flip up and glimpse a flash of light as the camera cycles.
If you do not see the mirror flip up and return, the camera needs serious repair..
As for the LED Display, put some new batteries in it.
