Re: Problem with LCD image

This is in all probabilty a sensor problem. If the camera is young it may be exchangeable for another A repair is not likely unless it is one of those that have been recalled because of sensor problems. Canon Customer support will advise further

When I turn the camera on, the image that I am shooting does not show on the LCD monitor. When I switch the camera mode to view images I have taken previously, they show up but the new images are not...

there are many point you may want to look at.

first, if the LCD does not display the picture you just capture, there is a possibility that the digital module of the device is broken and that it does not show or save the pictures you have recently captured.

if the pictures you recently captured can be viewed on a computer, there is a possibility that the connection between the LCD and the camera is loose. we canot say that tha issue is the LCD since it displays previoulsy captured image.

to work around the issue, it is best if you visit a local repair shop or a technician to have a look at the unit and have it repaired.

as per the cost, it will actually depend on the damage of the device. you may want to put a new camera as one of your options.

LCD Display Blank

I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

No images

Look in Explorer at the .jpg files on your card to make sure they have information in each file. Next, make sure your software is set to view .jpg files,i.e. Faststone Image viewer ( can be set for virtually any image format. If you viewed the images on the lcd monitor they were on the card at that time. Make sure you haven't somehow protected those image files or have accidentally reformatted it.

DSC-S75 - LCD shows better than actual pictures

could be a monitor miscalibration. Sometimes, pictures will be different than what it appears LCD monitor brightness cud be high and PC monitor brightness might be low... Did u try printing some of the dark pictures? if printed photos are different, then its defintely a calibration issue.
