Question about GE E1030 Digital Camera

Strange display screen issue

For some reason, when I turn on my camera everything functions perfectly, except the display screen does not light up. I've had this camera for almost a year. When I plug the camera cord into the USB port on my laptop, the screen lights up. The battery is fully charged with or without the cord. My camera still takes pictures, I just can't view them until I upload them with my memory card. And it wasn't until I used and unplugged the cord for the very first time a week ago that I ever had the problem with the display screen. I've tried resetting the camera to it's default settings, and it did not help. And I've tinkered with the camera in every way I know how. Any hope?

LCD Display Blank


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)

There is a sensor behind the lens of your camera that takes light and converts it to electrical signals that in turn is decoded by the board. If the sensor is damaged, there will be no picture to display only what you have in the memory stick. Work on it. Good Luck

As long as the pictures look fine it is something going on with the lcd display.

If it was taking pictures the same, it could be a special effect that is turned on or the CCD is bad. It sounds like the LCD display is bad. Some cameras can be repaired at a reasonable price with a new LCD display.

Have you replaced the batteries in the camera? That might take care of the problem.

No display at all. But able to take pictures with Canon A75


Sounds like you might have accidentally turned the display off. Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once on the back of your camera.

The secondary small mirror that guides the light from the lens to the sensors ( sensors sit at the bottom of the mirror box , underneeth the main mirror ) may be out of position. To check : take lens off and gently lift the main mirror half way up ( pushing up ) and see if the secondary mirror is dangling ( which it should not be doing ). Correct 1) reingage spring 2) reingage hinge.

Anyone know why my 5D has frozen?


Is the mirror jammed do you think? Can you activate with the lens off. It is worth getting onto Canon Technical Support, just in case this is a known issue[A Free replacement camera ;-)] Do bare in mind that sending cameras away for repair is a gamble. Think packing/shipping/insurance/Upfront checkout fee and return of camera- unrepaired because of lack of parts- This is something well known in the repair business there are in general no major parts available - because of the way cameras are made The repair[non] cost could be in the region of £100 or so money better put toward a new more advance model But try out Canon first.

LED screen not working


Could be the tube[backlight] has blown. Can you see any image on the screen if you angle it around to the light? Check the Manufacturers Web site- tech support If it is a young camera they may offer a refurb on in exchange if you are out of warranty
