None - screen light bust Contact customer support. Likely repair cost will be approaching the price of a new camera.

Olympus 850 sw digital camera 2 yrs old! Used all day perfectly fine turned back on screen blank, still takes photos, Still flashes, still beeps when press buttons just lcd screen is black likes its off?...


Either the LCD screen is cracked or defective in some other manner. It's possible the LCD works but just the backlight is out as well. Either way, the camera needs to be opened and the LCD checked out.

The Olympus "Tough" and "SW" cameras are FAR FROM being either "Tough" or "S"hock and "W"aterproof. I have seen dozens and dozens of them with cracked glass over the LCD and destroyed by water damage. Sounds like something got inside your camera or it was badly dropped.

Hope this helps.

Everything is working except the LED screen which is blank. Possible water damage from rain. Any solutions?

First thing to do whenever you suspect water damage is to take the batteries out, open as many doors and caps as possible, and let the device dry out for 2-3 times as long as you suspect it should take. Sometimes in humid environments you can put the device in a container and dump in some clean dry rice. Cover it and let the dry rice pull some of the moisture out. Don't let rice get in the camera :) As a last resort, you can disassemble the camera as far as you feel comfortable, then dump some denatured alcohol in and around the screen to help flush out the water and possibly clean any residue left on contacts by the drying water. After this, again let the camera dry out completely before even reassembling. If it still doesn't work, it may be time to get a new camera. Good luck!

Everything on my lcd screen shows up brown


Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem

Are the pictures only showing brown in the camera lcd, when you transfer to you PC they are correctis yes, then your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

LCD screen is black


If you look really closely at the screen can you see an image? You say you can see if you point the camera at bright light... Sounds like your backlight is either damaged or just unplugged.

If you are comfortable doing the repair, you need to open up the camera and remove the front and back case. Check the small ribbon cable under the LCD, is it damaged or unplugged? Try taking it out and plugging it back in, now does it work?

Keep the camera away from static shock, and only turn the camera on with the front and rear body on, never off.

If you need somebody to do the repair for you, we are an affordable digital camera repair business (Google: darntoothysam) and we can definitely take care of it for you.

Lcd screen


We have your LCD available for purchase in our store (google: darntoothysam com) or you can look for a defective camera online and buy it and remove the LCD to use to fix your camera.

If you can do the work yourself the cheapest way is to buy a defective camera, you won't be able to buy the LCD from a store and a camera repair business (except for ones like mine) will charge you far too much money for the part.

Shop around, there are many solutions these days thanks to the internet!

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)

Canon ixus 75 black screen

I tried all the solutions offered on the net and none worked except one. It simply said "hit the camera with the palm of your hand" (when it is on) and the screen will return. I thought, well I have nothing to lose and so I hit it on the side and sure enough the LCD is again working !!!

LCD screen

I tried a hood from the HOODMAN and it was better than nothing but the best solution comes from http:\ They have a very reasonably priced metal hood that attaches with velcro. In addition it gives 2X magnification which is great for focusing macros, etc. I use mine with the Eagle Eye 5X lens and I get some really sharp shots because I can focus accurately. Try it. You'll like it.
