OK! IF YOU CAN GET INTO YOUR MENU SETTING YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SET THE BRIGHTNESS ON THE LCD. IF YOU HAVE YOUR MANUAL IT SHOULD TELL YOU HOW. IF YOU NEED THE MANUAL, GO ONLINE TO THE CAMERA WEBSITE AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD AN ONLINE COPY THERE. IF THIS DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM, YOU MAY HAVE TO REPLACE THE LCD. THIS CAN BE DONE BY ANY GOOD REPAIR SHOP. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217.

Backlight spoilt for dsc t90


When the display is to dark or to light, the manual says:
Adjust the brightness of the backlight (page 18).
On page 18 it says:
This sets the brightness of the LCD screen. When viewing images in bright outside light if [Brightness] is set to [Normal], reset to [Bright]. However, the battery power may decrease faster under such condition.
You also can press the button with the > logo, to change between view pictures and record.

I replaced the lcd screen. Now when the my camera is turned on i have a black screen with nothing on the lcd. Not even a menu display. I have pushed the lcd ribbon as suggested but no luck. Need advise....


The backlight is not turning on, it's the smaller of the two ribbon cables on the LCD assembly.

Make sure you have a backlight on your new LCD (not everybody sells it with the backlight!) or reuse your old backlight with the new LCD.

Check the backlight cable, is it ripped? Even slightly? If so, you need a new backlight.

If your LCD doesn't light up then it's either the backlight or the LCD, you can open up the camera and check the cables before buying any parts. Some LCD screens come with the backlight, some don't; not sure if this one does or not.

IF it was water damage, you probably have corrosion on the main PCB and won't be able to fix it without replacing the board... open it up and check for corrosion!

Hope this helps.

Canon SD870IS LCD is very dark


Most likely the display backlight fuse is blown. You will have to give it to a local repair shop or Canon service center. They will give you the price.

Dark LCD screen


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)
