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?

I have a toshiba satellite L445D-S5976 and I am experiencing the black screen but this is different from most of the problems I've seen on here, whenever I try to turn it on the fans start up fast then...

hey.. Well this is one of 2 problems, More than likely the BackLight on your screen is dead. Dont worry that's a common problem and the fix basically is to replace the screen. You can order the screen online and then simply remove the old one from the housing by first removing the rubber plugs then the screws hidden under the plus. lift the lid off and unscrew and replace the screen. The reason why the monitor may not be turning on is because you need to switch the primary display. If you look carefully at the keyboard you will notice that there a key written Fn usually in blue, Thats the function key. There will be another key with a blue Monitor symbol usually f8 (may not be the same on yours). you hold Fn and press that key to enable the external Monitor.

If you were doing that then this is the reason for your problem. THE GPU (graphics processing Unit ) usually called the graphics card is Damaged. unfortunately yours is built onto the ma board which means to fix this you have to replace the entire board. But thats a very very rare issue. I'm betting that the First (above) one i mentioned about the Back Light is the reason for your problem..

Becuase the fan turn on loud and then settles down it means the main board is functioning properly ad the system is booting its just that you cant see it because of the back light and not switching the display unit.

Faulty Display

It could be a bad connection in the wiring between your display and the keypad. You should get it checked out at a cell phone store especially if it's still covered under warranty.

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

Weird.. same with mine! Seems perfectly fine with exception to this problem. No obvious damage, camera still functions as expected, but yes, not responsive to touch. Could it be a date issues (2008.. lead year ?).
