Re: LCD upside down and backwards

Look for a small pinhole somewhere on the camera body. then insert a pin to reset the camera. if no pinhole, remove batteries for a long time (about 24 hours) then try again.

My Nikon Coolpix s203 is having a monitor problem. While it still takes picture and uploads fine, the image in the screen is upside down, and remains upside down even if camera is held that way. In...

Okay, what your going to need to do here, D not shoot the tech is bring this to a camera shop.

The issue is with the video output to the lcd display not the display itself. Nikon is aware of this happening due to extended use of the display but they will not fix it because it would be out of warrenty.

Your looking at $45 in parts alone labor I would set at $15-25 per hour. So if this camera cost $100 bucks then you would look at alternitives of course.

Please do not shoot the tech, We are not charging you here we are lookingfor you execlent feedback and ratings in exchange for the advice. Thanks

No lcd display and no pictures

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, 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 the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX12 upsidedown screen

The issue is due to the data cable getting damaged due to the way of packing it inside the camera casing. The signal carrying traces on the edge of the felxible cable is getting damaged. Once the camera is opened and the cable is repositioned properly/replaced will solve this issue.

Count down on memory card

The K100D's lcd read-out is limited to displaying 999 as its maximum. This means that the card is capable of storing 999+ pictures. Once it gets to a point that the card can only store 999 pictures or less, then it will begin to count down.
Hope this helps!

Inverted image problem

Has this just happened or has it always been like this? There appears to be a a fault in the main board and only replacement will cure- So may be if the camera is more than a year or so old- time for a new one. Meanwhile do speak to the Canon Tech Support on the Web site. And whilst the matter is still not resolved ,shoot holding the camera upside down- seriously - tell me what happens.

My Screen is upside down and the words are backwards

The first thing I would do is a reset. Read your manual about this process, which often requires pressing two buttons at the same time or take your batteries out, wait a minute and put them back. See if resetting helps. Not being familiar with your camera, speciffically, Ithis sounds like the firmware in the camera is reading the info back to you backwards when it processes the image (from memory) for you to view. That means it is the firmware in the camera that is defective and sometimes you can update or reinstall that. I would check the manufacturer's site for updates or recalls and if it is under warranty, send it back to be fixed.
