LCD Screen has has no light to it anymore

The main LCD screen on the back of my Toshiba M700 camera has become almost unreadable. You can barely tell it is still working if you are in the light but in the dark you can't see anything on the screen. I would like to know what is wrong and how to fix it. Everything else seems to be working properly. The camera is about 3 years old. H E L P !!! if you can. Thanks, Ernie/

Re: LCD Screen has has no light to it anymore

The backlight to the LCD in your camera went out. You're going to have to get it replaced. Find a local repair shop that handles these cameras and get an estimate. There's probably nothing wrong in the camera, it just needs a little lamp swapped. Good luck

My camera Coolpix L20 is no working anymore. When I turn it on, the screen become white, nothing appears. The buttons's sounds it is OK, but no images appears in the LCD screen.

slap it into the lateral face , force the lens while turn on the camera, pressing OK while turn on the camera, it is risky but if you dont want to go to a shop camera you have to take this risk

My Cannon Powershot SD1000 LCD screen does not work. It will take pictures but will not let me change options, view the menu, or view images- past or present. Pressing the DISP button does nothing.

Has the screen been cracked/damaged? Was your camera dropped in any liquid? It's worth it to try having the LCD screen replaced, as it's quite affordable. If there is liquid damage near the LCD input inside the camera that would be another issue that would be solved by replacing those main boards.

In an ideal situation it would be just that the backlight cable wiggled itself out of its input (I'm assuming the screen doesn't light up anymore), which is something you could look at yourself if you're comfortable taking your camera apart. I wish you luck =)

I press the shutter button a red light flashes in the viewfinder

Your focus or lighting is too low for the picture. Add more light, and hold the button down half way to self adjust to see if it goes away. Change the battery to a lithium battery, which helps the digital cameras work their best.
Let me know if this helps.

Camera monitor very light

The LCD Monitor Brightness has a range of -5 to +5.

Rotate the mode dial to Setup. Turn on your camera.
Go into the Setup Menu, then Custom, then select LCD Brightness. Make adjustments as needed.

Let me know if this fixes the LCD monitor. Thank you, Binary Bob

SD card size

You'd better find some local dealer and try. Newer SD cards use the new SDHC profile which is not supported by the camera. 1G and smaller cards should have no problem but even this largely depends on toshiba's programming ability. 4G and above probably would not work.

EOS DIGITAL solution disk

clear you computer desktop of misc files. then right click on a blank spot on the desktop. select 'properties' then select 'settings' where you will find the video resolution screen. adjust to a higher resolution in one increment. apply, and if it does not look good to you then revert and take another setting up from that one.
this is an easy function to fool with. there will likely be several choices and they often change the correctness of the image as it fits on your particular display aspect ratio (width vs. hight) and the result will be a not very pleasing image due to shrinking or stretching. also, you may find a setting that your monitor does not like for one reason or another. it could cause your image to become unreadable. do nothing if it looks bad or you can't see it clearly, as it will always revert to original settings on its own unless you tell it you like it. so be sure to hesitate if you are not sure. if you select a setting that your monitor or driver can not handle, you might have an unreadable screen, which makes changing it back very hard.
good luck
