"Oily" spots burnt into LCD

I have a Canon SD400, not quite 1 yr old, and it looks like an image has been burned into the otherwise black, blank screen. The camera was working perfectly, then put into it's case. A few hours later the LCD was black with oily looking distortions burned into it. Has anyone had this happen? Know the solution and/or est. cost of repair?

Sounds like a cracked LCD. That happened to my S400, and it was pretty evident the glass screen had broken. I bought a new one and installed it myself at a cost of under $40. Having a shop do the repair will cost quite a bit more. If you think this is the problem, do a Google search on "canon s400 lcd screen repair" and you'll find some resources to walk you through the ordering and replacement process.

My 1 1/2 yr old Panasonic ZR 1 has developed, what looks like burn spots that show up on every photo. It appears to be on the inside of the camera. The camera is well protected in a padded case and never...


Hi, Those burn spots are commonly caused by burnt out pixels on the sensor which can be cause by many things, the most common cause is taking pictures directly towards the sun. I've heard some issues with that camera specifically but realistically it can happen to any camera. You could buy a new sensor for the ZR1 which would likely run $100 to $300, usually found by buying a broken version of the camera. If you need more help let me know =)

SD400 LCD Screen White after Replacement


There are a number of possible common faults that can cause the screen problem that you are describing.

It is possible that the new replacement screen is defective, or there is a defect in the ribbon cable, or the sockets are not making proper contact, or there is a cold solder connection at the socket or on the circuit board, or the driver circuits on the circuit board have a failure.

The service tech would try another screen, or ribbon cable (if changeable), or the circuit board to locate the defect. Once he finds the defective board, he will leave in the new replacement.

These cameras are serviced by modular approach.

Dropped Ixus 50 in water...!


place your camera in a hot press, or where your boiler is, on shelf and it might dry out in a day or two, then try it again.

Dell 19" Monitor - Dead


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After it went blank, you have to check that you can see the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like mine, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
Thank you,
Tan
