    but with the cybershot dsc-t1

    Problem just started after charging the camera. At first the display was very distorted with static lines. I reset and removed the battery. The display is now just a blank screen with all the modes displayed. No visual linkage to picture to be taken. Either on the LCD display or the eye view finder.

How do I re-set a 10.1megopixel c1033


Chances are something is blocking the lens. It could be a lens cap, or your finger, or even a grain of dust or sand.

Here's the best first course of action:
1. Turn off the camera
2. Blow sharply into the areas around the lens/lens cap.
3. Turn it on again and see if that resolves the problem. Be sure nothing is physically obstructing the lens. (No lens cap, no finger, etc.)
4. If blowing doesn't work, try using a can of compressed air like you would buy at an office supply store, and blow out the area around the lens and lens housing. Chances are, if nothing was obstructing the lens that you could see, it might be a bit of dust or sand. Even a little sand can totally screw up the lens and keep it from moving in or out.
5. If this doesn't work, you should take your camera to a camera shop and have it professionally inspected and cleaned. Check out how much this will cost, though, before you do -- it might not make sense to pay what they want to charge, versus just buying a new camera.

The screen stays black. Yes, I have batteries, I do get instructions and images for video or camera, but I can no longer get a visual of anything the camera is aiming at. It's like there is a lens cap on...


Look at the front at the lens. Turn the camera to picture mode. Point the camera at a light above you. Take a few pictures and watch the lens.
You should be able to tell if is functioning correctly or if its broken. It sounds like it has been dropped.

Does not record in doors or in low light. very dark display


It sounds like you may have the the camera in manual mode or that the Iris may be turned down. I am not sure if you model has an Iris control so make sure it is not in manual mode.

Canon powershot A590 displayes lens error, restart camera.


I had this problem. Nothing was lodged between the body and lens, restarting multiple times did nothing, cleaning, torquing, twisting over several days - nothing.

So, figuring "what could it hurt?" I just smacked it on the heel of my hand a couple times. Now it works.

firm percussive maintenance saves the day once again.

Turn Camera off remove batteries for a few moments. Re insert batteries. Turn on will reset itself. Ensure you use correct focus settings as per instructions. If you dont use correct settings this problem will reoccur.

Assuming you don't see any video through the viewfinder, it could be that the CCD has died on that camcorder. It happens, though not frequently.

If the video though the viewfinder is clear, there might be some sensor on the lens ring to indicate a lens cap, or an automatic lens cap not properly disengaging when put in record mode.

LCD showing "remove len cap and press reset button" always


Simple! Read warnings carefully! It said "remove lens cap and press SET button"! So remove the lens cap and then press the SET button (or arrow downward in the four directions button)! You don´t need to RESET anything...
