Sounds like the Backlight is working but the LCD is not. The first thing I would try is opening up the camera(if this is the sort of thing you are comfortable doing) and pulling out and then pushing in the LCD ribbon.

See this image for where the ribbon for the lcd connects (at least on a SD600).

Hello guys, please only reply if you have a realistic solution. I have a JVC HM100 camcorder and I have recently attached a cheap wide angle converter. Since then, my trouble started. When I take it off,...


When was the last time you white balanced your camera? I can't say for certain, but it sounds very similar to a problem I use to deal with all the time.
  1. set the ND filter according to the lighting
  2. set the WHT.BAL. switch to A or B
  3. locate a place with similar lighting conditions as the subject, place a white object near the center of the screen and zoom in to fill the screen with white
  4. press the auto white balance button
I got all of this from the manual. starting on page 35. I hope this turns out to be it. Let me know how it works out!

Operating instructions for dsr pd177p sony video camera. I am not in postion to operate the camera, please guide how to operate the camera.


It is not very easy to say few lines to tutor ,but learn to use only by experience.Put the battery on for charging.Once fully charged slide the power switch to camera.Open the lens cap ,open the view finder display.Now you can see the picture on your screen.Set the camera to auto focus.show the camera to a white screen so as to white balance the camera.Now point at an object and do a trial Zooming using the auto zoom with your finger.The image will come closer and you can draw it to white screen.Having an object in view on the white screen,press the record button.Slowly move the zoom forward to get the right frame of the object.Press reccording button once again to stop.Repeat the process on different scenes.
Now shift the mode switch to play and rewind and play the reccorded portion.Practice.

Sony DSC-W5 camera and the LCD screen is blank (white)


Remove the Battery pack from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Next, reinsert the Battery pack in the Camera and try to turn it ON. Make sure that the Battery pack is fully charged. If the LCD remains white then the LCD screen needs to be serviced or replaced.

Screen and photos turn dark when zoom is used


Take a look at the manual - sounds like you have accidentally changed the white balance setting - you will want to set it back.

SD870 encountered water. Screen is now white. Does the screen need to be replaced or electronic components?


I know that when you take the ribbon cable off the LCD screen, and power the camera up, the screen is just white. It's probably that cable that came lose, or is not properly connecting. A good cleaning on the cable (behind the LCD screen) would fix it.

Cannon zoom sd870


hi have you tried removing the battery for couple of hours so it can reset any settings that need to be set back to default it only resets camera memory not settings you have changed but this can sometimes solve the problem your having.

Also when you switch camera on and then press zoom when the camera switches off does the lense go back inside the camera as normal or does it reamin out.

when you switch in on do all the other buttons work like can you take picture and can you access all the menu if you can then take it off auto if its on auto then see if this let you use zoom if not then the chances are their is a fault on the zoom button either jammed could be that the lense motor has come out of line with zoom button, is the display clear when you go to take picture without adjusting the zoom is it still possible to take pictures
