White screen Been using my 5900 for two years without much problem. Then a black squiggle appeared on the screen lower right. A couple of weeks later the screen faded and is now just white. Any ideas? Can this be repaired?

I have a Canon A720is (about 5 years old) that recently has started to show problems.

I think you immersed camera in water. This might have damaged corroded contact of LCD supply line and PCB.

Screen frozen with an interesting black & white abstract pattern

you are probably in need of a new LCD screen. If you do a lot of cropping and such on camera then you may want to use an A/V cable this will allow you to save your LCD screen and the batteries in the camera will not have to work so hard either.
LCD Screens are about 20 dollars and it is not a super hard job to replace. roughnready_offroad@yahoo,com

White screen with black stripes, black spot

Sounds as if the camera would need to be sent to Olympus for service. You may want to call their Customer Service to discuss repair options and pricing. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

A95 LCD screen black and unable to take photos

There are quite a few of us with symilar problem, but the screen is not completely black: it has some purple or pinkish color when facing light. Old pics and menu can still be viewed. I noticed 4 symilar threads on Canon A95 within the last 5 mins without any search, just looking at the top questions.

Switch on - Switch off! Coolpix3100

Coolpix uses SD cards, not CF. Anyway, try using the camera without memory card, only with internal memory. If it works, then replace memory card.

Fuji f700

I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!
