Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD screen is not producing a normal picture screen

For example I turn on my camera, and I decide to take a picture of my computer. The screen's image is moving when the computer is still. When I take pictures of anyone, it turns out looking like radiation pictures, all yellowy and orangey hues. What is the problem?

Check the pictures on your PC. If there is no change then the CCD unit is a problem. Please contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service. Arpi

White lines on image however when capturing on dark areas and on video mode, it produce a perfect image

Not clear when you have white lines. While looking on the screen or really on a image.
Lots of camera's produce lines on the LCD, when using the LCD to frame the picture. Special when there are small and sharp lights in the image. But the sensor is not capturing that while making the picture. It is a sort of smear on the screen.
Also, when you try to make a picture in bright lights, you can get flares, but those you can see on the screen and in the picture. To fight flares, most camera's and lenses come with sun hoods. Your camera does not have a hood, so try to avoid shining bright lights on the front of the lens.

I SEE the green light when I turn on the camera but LCD screen of Sony DSC-F505V is dark black, nothing happens-total silence and cannot take any pictures. Did I loose my camera? Solution?


Based on the information provided it seems that the issue may be with the LCD Screen. You can check if the Camera is working by capturing images and inserting the Memory Stick in the Computer Memory Card slot. If the image capturing is normal then the images can be saved to the Computer. If the images are not getting captured, then the issue may be with the Camera. We can try power resetting the Camera to resolve the issue.
Turn off the Camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
If the issue persists after resetting, then service may be required to identify the exact cause.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a new Canon T1i . I cannot figure out how to use the LCD screen to take a picture, like I would on a normal digital camera. I can preview w/ the LCD and see Menu options, but am unable to look at...

Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press the LiveView button (northwest of the round multiselector). The LiveView image will appear on the monitor.

For full details, see the "Live View Shooting" chapter in the manual.

Be careful shooting this way. Not only will the LCD consume more battery power this way, but holding the camera at arm's length will produce more camera motion than bracing it against your face.

How do I adjust the 22 in. rectangular screen to prevent images from appearing wider than normal. For example, pictures of persons make them look fat and wide.

You can use any other image viewing software such as Picasa. It will open images at 100% size but you can change the size of images

Without warning the screen has produced images

Geoff, From what you tell me, it seem that either the LCD is going, if not gone yet, or the display IC is going. Replacing the LCD is possible, but rectifying an IC is beyond economic repairs. So hope it is the former. And do visit take the camera to the service centre.

New Kodak M1033 cannot see image on LCD in sunlight

This is a common problem with all LCD screens without anti-reflective coatings.This is normal. Increase the brightness of LCD while shooting in the sun. Internal memory normally takes only a few images. This is normal. Use a memory card to shoot more images.

Horizontal lines on LCD & picture; pinkish pictures

If the picture aren't appearing that way when you take it, there could be some faulty wiring in the lcd display.

When Zooming picture it produces blurred or fuzzy picture

This is when zooming through your camera LCD I presume? For small screens usually banding and pixelation is common, if this happens also when the picture is zoomed in on a larger monitor like on your computer then the resolution you set for your camera is low. You can check for the camera setting and increase the resolution from for example 1024x768 to a much higher value and the fuzinnes (blur) will disappear altogether...
