LCD screen too dark.

Hi, the LCD on my Lumix DMC-FX8 is too dark. I have removed the battery and replaced it, I have turn the brightness to full, it looks like it needs a setting to turn the backlight on, but I cannot find it in the menu. Please assist with a solution.

I'm not sure what I did but I solve the problem.I open up the camera to see if backlight is unplugged,but everything was ok.In mean time I press I think two buttons at the same time PWR LCD button and main shoot button.Now I'm not so sure and I'm afraid to try it again to make it bad again.So you guys who still have a problem try and let me now if there was a problem.Or it have to have something with screws when I was screwing and unscrewing the camera.Sorry for my bad english

Hi

It sounds like your backlight is either defective or unplugged. You can open up the camera and check the ribbon cable, or if you find its not working you can find a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Camera will not turn on


Try taking out the battery, then putting it back in. Also consider using a replacement battery to see if that's the issue. Your problem might be addressed in the user manual for the device:

Dim screen on DMC FX8 - won't resolve with resets etc.


We had same problem with this camera at work - like another poster has commented, we unscrewed the back casing, lifted it and put it together again - lit up again good as new! must be a faulty connection somewhere. Hopefully it's a permanent fix.

Lcd


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

My camera's LCD screen goes black every so often. Is there something wrong with the camera?


No. All Lumix® Digital Cameras have a built-in feature to conserve battery power. After a certain amount of inactivity, the LCD will power down to preserve the battery. Simply hit the SHTR button, and the LCD will turn ON.
