Bought holga pinhole lens, set camera to Manual, but view finder is blank as well as pictures


Are you setting the exposure properly? The pinhole lens requires a much longer exposure than usual. Try pointing the camera out the window at a daytime scene (not directly at the sun!), set the ISO at 200, and the shutter speed at 1 second. Do you get a black picture now? If you get something, adjust the exposure from there by changing the shutter speed.

Display is black cannot see pictures taken


Hi there:
Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Why is my canon ae-1 only developing blank film


First thing I would do is sacrifice a roll of film. Load the film as you have been. Then with the back open and tension on the film (do not touch the film over the shutter, advance the film. It may be that you are putting the film on the takeup spool incorrectly. Watch how the film advances on the spool. If it is on the spool incorrectly it will disconnect then not advance. If that does not work it may be a errant takeup spool.

The camera took great pictures then all of a sudden the screen appears as a purple haze -- and the pictures come out as just a purple blurry haze. Adjusting brightness doesn't work. Yet, the shutt


If the LCD displays correctly on previous photos then the problem is more than likely a CCD or associated ribbon connector failure due to moisture/condensation or age/misuse. Good luck with finding a replacement part!

Nikon D90, I take the pictures but blank screen comes on to display screen on quick review and same on the Play mode as well. It is a new camera


Don't try to fix it yourself. If it is new, it is still under Nikon's one year warranty. Contact Nikon at 1-800-NIKON-US (1-800-645-6687) 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday.

I'm having problems with the settings on my Canon EOS 400D. When I take pictures in AV mode I can get quality pictures but in TV or M modes the pictures always come out so dark even when taking them...


You need to understand the relationship and teractivity of aperture, shutter speed and iso. In Av mod, you choose the aperture and the camera makes thw shutter speed agjustment, In Tv mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera makes the aperture adjustment, In manual, you have to set both shutter speed and aperture manually. If the ISO mode is set to AUTO, the camera chooses the sensors sensitivity to light automatically. Change to specific ISO
(200-400 for daylight and 799-1600 for night). Take a picture in AV mode and note what shutter speed the camera chose. Then switch to TC mode choose the same shutter speed and see if camera chose the same aperture(f-stop) you chose in first shot. Change to Manual and choose same f-stop and shutter speed the camera chose for you in the other modes. Compare all three photos. They should be almost if not exactly the same exposure wise.
In Tv mode choose a dlowers shutter speed, In Manual choose a combo of slower shuuter and wider f-stop(smaller number). Read your manual.

These are output settings for when you want to connect the camera to a tv. If you were connected to a tv, when your screen goes blank, the picture would appear on the tv screen.

Will not show picture and camera is working. Is


Not too much info here. Based on your statement, I'm guessing you are trying to connect a digital camera to your monitor to display pictures on it.

1) Does the monitor work fine as a monitor on its own?

2) Make sure you're on the right display/input setting on your monitor.

3) How do you know the camera's TV-out function is working? Have you tried it on other TVs?

Its possible that the camera is not in display mode. Its also possible that the camera's TV-out is not working. Its also possible that something about the output from the camera is not compatible with your monitor. I would try the following:

1) Test the camera on another TV to make sure the TV-out is working.

2) If its working, go to the appropriate input/source setting on your monitor, before connecting the camera. Then connect the camera, when the camera is off. If nothing displays then turn the camera on, and see what happens.

If that doesn't work, it may be possible that your camera displays in a different set of settings (resolution, etc) than your monitor is able to display. Also I would check the manual for your camera to make sure there isn't some way to adjust the settings.

Poor quality pictures.


You need to adjust the shutter speed-if there is a tv setting on it-use it to adjust the shutter speed to something like not 1/4 of a second but 1/1000 of a second what this is how much light is allowed to come in and the longer the shutter speed the worst the picture will be
