Re: My Screen is upside down and the words are backwards

The first thing I would do is a reset. Read your manual about this process, which often requires pressing two buttons at the same time or take your batteries out, wait a minute and put them back. See if resetting helps. Not being familiar with your camera, speciffically, Ithis sounds like the firmware in the camera is reading the info back to you backwards when it processes the image (from memory) for you to view. That means it is the firmware in the camera that is defective and sometimes you can update or reinstall that. I would check the manufacturer's site for updates or recalls and if it is under warranty, send it back to be fixed.

I have a Canon Rebel XT. After taking a picture, the viewer shows the shot upside down and when I down load to my computer they come in all upside or sideways. Just started doing this and I've had

The EOS cameras have some sort of sensor built in to tell the camera which way the shot should be orientated on screen and when they are transferred to the computer.
It sounds like the sensor is jammed or broken and sensing (for some reason) that the camera is upside down when the shot is taken.
If you don't want to pay to have it repaired you can use a program to rotate them or turn of the image rotate option in the menu. I believe this ignores the sensor information.

My Nikon Coolpix s203 is having a monitor problem. While it still takes picture and uploads fine, the image in the screen is upside down, and remains upside down even if camera is held that way. In...

Okay, what your going to need to do here, D not shoot the tech is bring this to a camera shop.

The issue is with the video output to the lcd display not the display itself. Nikon is aware of this happening due to extended use of the display but they will not fix it because it would be out of warrenty.

Your looking at $45 in parts alone labor I would set at $15-25 per hour. So if this camera cost $100 bucks then you would look at alternitives of course.

Please do not shoot the tech, We are not charging you here we are lookingfor you execlent feedback and ratings in exchange for the advice. Thanks

LCD upside down and backwards

look for a small pinhole somewhere on the camera body. then insert a pin to reset the camera. if no pinhole, remove batteries for a long time (about 24 hours) then try again.
