I have a digital camera that uses a compact flash memory card. In theory it holds about 100 pictures but in fact it only holds about 15 and then goes on strike. I replaced the memory and the camera is working and now hopefully capacity is restored.

Just in case the camera is failing it is advisable to ensure all your pictures are downloaded and backed up.

I suggest you read the instruction manual. If a device doesn't operate per the instructions it can be considered faulty. In that case there could be useful advice available from the manufacturer's website.

Have you checked whether the memory card is full?

SOURCE: Very, very dark (almost black) lcd screen, but is functional

The LCD viewer is made up of the LCD screen, and the backlight. Your backlight is burnt out, or the circuit board isn't sending power to it. Backlights can be replaced separately.

If it's pink/purple and "streaky", you have a bad CCD sensor. The only fix is replacement of the sensor. This is the main image capturing sensor in the camera. The situation is well documented on the web. It's usually the end of the camera, unless it's under warranty (or just a little past). Approaching Fuji's repair department can sometimes yield a sympathetic rep who'll have it fixed at no charge to you. If you are on the hook for the repair, expect to drop about $100 US.

SOURCE: lcd monitor cracked

Hi

You can probably find an LCD or a defective camera with a good LCD online for fairly cheap. Don't bother trying to buy the LCD new from a local repair shop or store, if anybody has it they will want far too much money for it.

I can list it in our store, though its a special order item and we don't have any in stock at this time. We are an AFFORDABLE digital camera repair business, (Google: Darntoothysam) I can list your LCD for about $45.

If we can help please let me know. Good luck from Darntoothysam com

You can switch it off so as not to show the picture after you take one.

You cannot use the monitor to show images as you're taking them. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

SOURCE: My Nikon D60 monitor is dark...no image preview,

No, you have done nothing wrong. The D60 does not have the preview function on the monitor like the compact digital cameras. Nikon gave that function a name. It is called 'Live View'. The newr models like the D90 do have that feature. You can read further about your D60 here: www.digitalcamera-hq.com

My Kodak Easyshare V1223 turns on and shows all icons normally on the view screen as well as older pictures on the memory card...but shows everything else black and pictures remain black even with flash...


Hi!

It is not necessary something wrong with the camera itself. Sometimes the simptom is caused by the memory card. Reading from it works (so you can see older pictures) but every new picture is written wrong, so the camera shows only black.

Hope it is only the memory card in your case.

Good luck,

Bogdan

There is something wrong with my flash screen. It's Black. Everytime I try to take pictures on My Finepix z fujifil blue digital camera the screen goes black, and when I go to see what I took a picture...


Flash screen? What? You mean even in pictures with flash disabled (and the flash does drag down the electronics in the thing; make a replacement using an LED lamp and circuit if you have a chance) it takes no picture and leaves you with a black LCD? Are you indeed using a good battery (they go bad gradually (depending on the case on how many times you fire the flash!)) New battery first!

Don't know how to set up my camera to take pictues


turn the camera on with the button on top, then take off the lens cap and insert a memory card into the side. The pictures will save to the memory card and you can buy an adapter to connect the memory card to your computer to view and save the pictures.

My exilim camera is taking black pictures. Two days ago it was fine and all of a sudden when I turn it on the display screen and previous pictures are dark. When I take a picture or video now it is just...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The "camera ready" light starts out green when I turn on the camera, and then changes to blinking orange, and won't let metake a picture...fresh batteries don;t make a difference.


You can try to set all the menus to default, but this camera may need repair.
Make sure you have the right kind of batteries.
Putting in the wrong kind of batteries may cause errors.
