Question about HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera

1 Answer

HP R707 My camera started taking really dark photos, after working perfectly for a few years. Now the screen is totally black. I can see the menu options and all the messages the camera ususally gives, but no picture. I tried reseting it, and all the self diagnosis test. All the results passed. I do not know where to send my camera for repair. I don't want to send it w/o knowing the cost. Can anywone tell me if you had the same problem and if it is worth repairing it. thanks

Its a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. all on a sudden, LCD is not working. Monitors remains dark when I press 'On' button and the photo taken are also dark. However old photos on the SD card I can in the screen...


If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

LCD screen stays dark

I have the same problem and very frustrating! The camera turns on by won't show anything (totally black) in the camera mode. The menu still works. If I take a picture the display is black and shows black for it in the display mode model as well. Tried everything that I can think of but nothing helped. (Taking out the batteries and reinstalling, switching the mode from display to camera and back, stepping through each mode option, stepping through each menu options). The last option worked once but won't work later on. From this forum this seems to be a common problem with this camera. Guess won't buy another camera from Canon any more. I bought a camera (non-digitals SLR) from Canon before and was very happy with it for over 20 years. Thought Canon had the right thing in camera. This problem made me think twice when I buy another camera in the future. Perhap Canon is not as good as I thought. By not fixing the known problem, they are ruining their reputation.

While taking smap just blank dark black snaps are coming

This definitely sounds like a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following links for more info:
