Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

The LCD monitor on my SD 200 is not functioning. When the camera is turned on the screen is bright amd shows vertical colored lines in the bottom left corner, a grey blue patch in the top left and a purple blob in the top right. It is the same with the card in or out and none of the function keys make any difference.

Sounds like a cracked LCD screen. You may be able to fix it if you can find a replacement screen. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement, including one for your camera. Don't recommend that you try this yourself, unless you have some experience and are comfortable with electronics.

Otherwise, the cost of professional repair is beyond the value of this camera. A better option is to sell the camera on ebay for other repair hobbyists to replace the screen for themselves. You actually may get a good price for the camera IF it's still capable of taking pictures:

I have Sony Cybershot DSC T200 camera. It can take perfect pictures, but I can't see anything in LCD screen as it has colored vertical lines all over the screen. What can be the issue ?


If your pictures taken with the camera are seen when downloaded to the PC, the it is sure that the LCD is faulty or damaged.
The presence of vertical lines show that the processor driver to the LCD has failed. You have confirm cost of the new LCD before it can be decided.

I can't see digital display on the screen


Have you tried to adjust the monitor brightness? There is a function in the menu for Monitor Brightness that will allow you to make the LCD display lighter or darker. Go to Mode Menu and then down to Setup tab and then to the icon for Monitor Brightness (page 88 of the advanced user manual explains how to set this up).

My Nikon D70 lcd screen doesn't display correctly the colors on the screen show in bright glowing colors, but the pictures print out great and display well on my computer screen. Is there a setting that...


You are looking at two different monitors with different settings. In most cases you will need to do some editing yourself on your computer because of the difference. Or the brightness can be done in a lab.

I, took a picture with a bright sun as part of the picture. Now, my LCD just shows colored vertical lines. I, can not take a picture. Is there anyway, I, can fix this problem? Thank you.


Remove your batteries. Let your camera reset. Direct sunlight is never good for your sensor. That should fix it. If it doesnt then you sensor has been damaged unfortunatley repairs on sensor are not cheap

The image is getting blurred


Hi

The camera may have moved when the picture was taken. Try steadily squeezing the button intead of a quick press.

2.Try using a tripod, this could fix the blurred images.

3. faster shutter speed will be needed if you need to hold the camera, and cannot use a tripod.

4. Main reason for the lines could be that the subject is to bright.
A vertical bar of light(red, purple) appears on the LCD monitor/ in the viewfinder This is a normal occurrence in devices containing CCDs (Digital Cameras) and does not mean a malfunction. (This red bar of light will not be recorded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded when shooting
movies.)

Solution to the last point would be to try and switch of the flash if it is in use. Turn the ISO setting (50, 100, 200) to a lower one as well.

Hope that helps.

Why are there vertical lines or bars on the monitor screen when I record a movie?


Recording a movie of a subject that is brightly lit by the sun or some other very bright light source can cause vertical lines or bars to appear in the image during playback. This is due to a CCD phenomenon called "smearing." Note that lines or bars appear in movie images only, but not in snapshots. Smearing does not indicate malfunction of the camera.

Vertical lines and purple artifacts when the camera is aimed at bright subjects


Current LCD display technology can reproduce about 300 different levels of brightness. Brightly lit scenes or light sources may exceed this brightness range, causing a temporary disruption (artifacts) in the live display. Artifacts are part of the display, but they are not part of your recorded image. If you take a picture while you see artifacts on the screen and then display the picture on the LCD, you will no longer see the artifacts.
