Question about Olympus Stylus / mju 1050 SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus 1050 - lcd screen blank, gasket was loose.

Looks like the gasket that covers the USB/AV cable wasn't closing properly - I found water in the compartment. A few minutes later, the LCD screen went blank and seems to be off... the screen is still not working, but the camera itself is! (It still takes pics, video, etc.)... hm. Did I fry the screen's wires or something?

It is possible that since water did get into somehow that it did some internal damage to the camera. I recommend that you call Olympus Customer Service and discuss the repair process with them. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Screen blank


Look at the LCD screen very closely and check if you can see a faint image on the screen. It's possible that the LCD lid close switch stuck in the "closed" position and the back-light stays off even when you open the LCD screen or turn on the laptop. The switch turns off the back-light when you close the LCD display to save the laptop battery power.

If that didn't fix it then there are 3 things that could have gone wrong:

1. Video cable connection from inverter to LCD got loose. To check this, follow instructions from step 3 on how to open the LCD and check if cable is fitted properly.

2. The video inverter is faulty
The screen inverter failure is very similar to the back-light lamp failure. In both cases the screen gets very dark and the image on the screen becomes very faint, barely visible under a bright light. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. You can replace this otherwise - you can find the inverter under the screen, follow the procedure described at point 3 to open up the screen.

3. The LCD monitor is faulty
If it works on an external monitor most likely the LCD is faulty and needs replacement. If it's still under warranty, take it for a replacement. If not, you can do it yourself, it's pretty easy. Remove the rubber covers on the side of the screen, unscrew the screws take the plastic cover off, disconnect the video inverter and put in the new LCD after you connect the video inverter to it.

Blank screen HP DV1000 I can get video on an external monitor though


Your laptop may have video options:
* only internal LCD screen
* only external monitor (leaving your screen "dark")
* both screens.

Try toggling through the above 3 options.

After that, there's no part in the LCD screen that you can repair, by yourself.

So, if the computer is still under warranty, contact HP to exercise the warranty.

Otherwise, take the printer to a qualified technician, for proper trouble-shooting & repair.

I accidently dropped my 1050 sw olympus digital camera. and now i cant see anything but a black sreen with red and green lines running down the side..Could this be fixed i can still take pictures but i...


Hi

This has happened due to failure of lcd controller or due to a flex cable misalignment. When your camera was dropped, the cable connecting the lcd with the main board might came off and needs to be reconnected back. However, if you want to be sure its the flex cable and not any lense issue, you'll need to connect your camera with the computer and check whether all pictures you clicked after the camera gone bad are fine?

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Olympus Diital Camera FE 210 Blank screen


My name is Jaeyeal Jeung. I got an experience for FE 220. There are two flat cables inside of the camera. First one is for lens related and send one is for LCD related. If you can open, you need to check the connection of the cables, each cable is hooked to connector that it has flip cover. Try to open and follow what I said. Good luck.
