Re: The screen is blank, or white. Everything else seems...

Have you tried reseting the camera? remove batteries and replace after several minutes, if there's no other way, or in addition. Could also be a fault with the card. Try with a known good card, and see if there's any difference. Check to see if the contact pins in the card slot are all aligned, or if you have any bent ones out of place. Post back, let us know how it turned out.

My Nikon Coolpix S01 takes a very faded picture, which also shows on the screen. What caused this, and is it fixable?

All I can think of is either white balance, or exposure compensation. Have either of these deviated from the norm ?

Hi, When the camera is turned on, the LCD diaplay screen is blank (dark) and just displays various information icons for batterly level, megapixels, quality, flash-on, etc. When I try to take pictures, the...

The display being blank can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the images/picture is seen to be of good quality, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.since you are able to seen the ICONS the LCD is good , Now if the picture taken are seen well the CCD is also OK and the fault seems to be a digital logic gate failure as there is no switching of the circuit .

This might require a probe and it might be a relative issue in the motherboard circuit or the processsor. Remove battery , press down all buttons to drain off voltage and see if the camera resets.

Thank You for using fixya

Won't take pictures, blank screen on lcd and can't seem to see old pics from memory card, setting displays can be seen on lcd and shutters click when you take a pic but nothing can be seen when on view

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

Sony cybershot 4.1 DSC-P43

I bought a new 1MB memory card for this camera and was dismayed to find that the screen went completely blank - I couldn't do anything!!!! It was my sons graduation so had to buy another camera!
But, have just resolved this issue by pressing the bottom right-hand side of the screen with a rubber topped pencil - it works!!!!
This camera may be old and chunky but it still takes amazing pictures.
Hope it works for you too.
