Question about Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD Screen jumps around after 2 minutes of use. It does not effect the end result though. I also notice an opaque pixel wave that cuts across the screen at all times. This started happening about 2 months before the LCD screen jumping began. Is it a software problem or an LCD replacement problem? Thanks, manuelwawa

When you say the screen jumps around -I assume you mean the image not the actual screen it self. There are so many model out there it is impossible to be definitive. Try both of these 1. check the manual out and see if there is a 'Reset to factory setting' mode If not check out the Olympus Technical Help team at the Olympus web site. I have heard it said that the U.S. Olympus are not very helpful ,so if you can, try to locate Olympus Europe [based in Germany] I is almost certainly not a 'repair option,

Screen only has black thick line across it

this usually means the lcd screen is broken. Black lines equals black pixels which means they're not connected. Warranty repair.

Tiny black spot lcd

Erika, Do you mean you have a black spot on the LCD of your camera?
We call that a dead pixel. Can be black and can be white. Most LCD's sooner or later have a one or more dead pixel(s). As long as they are not in the centre of the screen you won't notice them. Even dead pixels on the camera sensor can happen. These you won't see at all, because the software does calculate what that pixel would look like in that specific shot. And the software will place a correct colour on that spot.
Try to live with the dead pixel(s). you won't see them on the actual pictures. Not on the computer to tablet and not on a print.

Sony a100 distortion dots - Im getting several

If these are single pixels on the LCD screen, they are normal. From pg. 8 of the user's guide:

"The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD monitor. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the images in any way. "

This may also be helpful.

"images may trail across the LCD monitor in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. When turning on the camera in a cold location, the LCD monitor may become temporarily dark. "

Image qulaity problem in fujifilm finepix fd50

It sounds like the resolution on the monitor may be set incorrectly in Photoshop. Try a different monitor setting. Twelve megapixels may result in your monitor "seeing" so many pixels it tries to ignore the excess ones, resulting in an image that looks poor on your monitor. If you order one print, that may give you an idea of the true printed quality without spending a lot of money on a bunch of bad prints. The F50 is truly an excellent camera and gives super images, from my experience.

Nikon D1 - thin green line across image

There's a few things you can try to narrow down where the problem might lie. One thing you don't mention is if the green line is on the actual image, or only shows up on the LCD monitor.

If the line is in the actual image after transferring it to your computer, try formatting the memory card in the camera, or try a different card to see if the problem persists. If it only shows on the LCD, count yourself lucky because you can continue to use your camera, albeit with an annoyance to deal with.

However, it sounds to me as though you've got either a dead or hot pixel on the CCD which will cause problems in the adjacent pixels creating a "line". Take a look at this page and this page. Unfortunately, you will most likely need to send it in to Nikon for repairs.
