There is a simple solution which may work temporarily - I am using it regularly: Hold the camera and, with the camera on, use your thumb to push simultaneously all four arrow buttons and the center button. If you are lucky, the screen will now work normally. You may have to switch off the timer or the flash depending on how the camera interpreted your 5-button push.

Alternatively, for (I suppose) a more permanent fix there is a YouTube video demonstrating how to take the camera apart, clean a ribbon connector, and remove two tabs from the front cover. You can find it here: http://www.diytrailcams.com/?forum=236367

When it goes to black&white the lightconditions are probably too dark. It has a better range in black&white so it switches. (but if I remember correctly this only happens when you're in video-modus 'cause in photo-modus the flash will pop up)

Something happened to my monitor screen .


Sound like your screen is going out, it could also be the inverter. Could also be the video card, but not likely. Before you go to changing out any hardware, go into the device manager and un-install the monitor drivers. The hardware wizard should pickup the monitor automatically and reinstall the drivers. Then look for any driver updates at the Dell support site. If that does nothing then it's either the screen or inverter.

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

Picture problems


What are normal things like text files and the desk top like? If it only photos that are problematical then it won't be the screen. Have a check around the system and a little think through- them come back
