G3 SCREEN NOT WORKING PROPERLY

I HAVE RECENTLY SOLD MY G3 ON EBAY, IT WAS IN PERFECT WORKING ORDER UNTIL THE NEW OWNER USED IT NOW HE IS SAYING THAT THE SCREEN DOESN'T WORK WHEN IT'S FLIPPED OUT BUT IS OK WHEN TURNED AROUND & WHEN IT IS BACK IN THE CAMERA BODY.
HE DOESN'T SEEM TO WANT TO SEND IT BACK SO I CAN CHECK IT , WHICH I'M A BIT DUBIOUS ABOUT , IS THERE ANY REASON IN WHY THIS HAS STARTED TO HAPPEN & CAN IT BE FIXED ?

It is probably due to a connection inside the camera becoming dislodged during transit.  It would not be a problem for an authorized repair facility to repair this; literally a case of opening it up and popping it back in. I would however not reccomend a user trying this, as the internals of a camera are quite delicate. If he is not willing to return it, why is he telling you that it is broken? Either he should return it for a refund, or he should accept that he needs to fix it. Don't give in to a refund or discount until you have seen that it is broken. He may well be lying otherwise.

How do I resart my camera?


This is not an uncommon error. It results from the lens being restricted during the power up. I have personally had many cameras (Canon, Sony, Nikon and Olympus,) like this that suffered this problem. I could not repair them myself. The cost to have them professionally repaired was most of the cost of a brand new one. For comparison search Ebay and then click on "sold" and you will see the prices people have paid for working used ones. The fix, unfortunately, is to buy a used working model. For this camera they start under $20 for as is and for about $50-460 you can buy one in mint condition. (Yes, you think your stuff is worth more until you see what they really sell for. Yikes!?!) So it makes no sense to pay more for a pro to repair yours when you can buy a used one for less than the repair or a new one. Please, don't shoot the messenger...

Problem with over-exposed photos


My suggestion is to try to reset to factory settings.

You may have accidently affected an exposure timing setting.

Or just try to use it in an automatic mode.

I sounds like a setting, since indoor flash pics are good, as you say.

Hi there, i recently purchased a polaroid 600 camera from ebay and some 600 film. However, when I try to shoot, I just get blank pictures coming out (completely brown - alomst negative-type look). I'm not...


More than likely, the camera is ok. It sounds like the film is either expired, or the previous owner did not store the film properly, therefore it cannot be exposed properly. If you bought it off of ebay, you do not know how the previous owner took care of the film. To narrow this problem down, I would get new film and try it again, hopefully this will work, but if not, it will further your troubleshooting efforts.

Have a scratch on screen.when i turn it on it is fern like on screen.my photos are perfect when i print them out.i just dont like the scratch.is it expensive to get it repaired


What camera do you have? Is the scratch on the outer casing? If that is the case, then buy a used camera (one sold for parts) through ebay and change the casing.
Camera repair is not that cheap. Sometimes, a used camera is cheaper than repairing one.

How much does it cost to get a new screen as dropped my camera and needs to be fixed


depends how handy you are. I buy broken ones (lens stuck, wont work etc but no crack in screen) on ebay for ~<$25. To get it repaired in a camera shop is not worth it. I love this camera, you can get it now (perfectly O.K) for <$50, on ebay: item# 230505313560 230505313571

Broken lcd screen


you cannot order it yourself , only a kodak support center can get them,
you can get them on ebay sometimes,
some repair shop might sell it to you, but why ,they make more by installing it correctly the 1st time.
its the issue of you saying the lcd never worked when they sold it to you ,but really you installed it and broke lcd again.
so its considered not a user replaceable part.

Canon powershot g3 no image on lcd


Assuming you are recording images on to the memory card[are you?]. Is is a 'peer through the screen to take model or can you use a normal viewfinder? If the latter I would learn to live without looking at the images ,until yo can see them on the screen[computer or TV] at home. Otherwise at this age it will be new camera time I feel, But do get onto Canon webs site technical support there may be a simple solution.

Polerized Filter


I think you should solve the 'washed out' LCD screen issue. Here's a link to an accessory which might help. http://hometown.aol.com/ESC2000/Sunshield.htm I've tested it on my Olympus E10 LCD screen, (although I don't use it), and I found it very satifactory. Hope this helps.
