Question about Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Display won't display anything, it merely turns on backlight.

My digital camera is 2.5 years old, and after one month of sitting i came back to it, turned it on, and can't see anything on the lcd display. the camera will still shoot pictures, it makes the same machine noises as it previously did when switched into different shooting modes, so the only real problem is the fact that the camera will not show anything on the display. i can turn the display on and off but the only difference is the dim backlight. any help would be appreciated.

I have replaced my old broken display, the camera works but the light of the display dont work. Its very dark.


The backlight is a different device located below the display. It is supplied with a high voltage (about 100V) over a separate cable. In case of the W55 both flat cables are soldered together and have one multi contact connector on the main board.
Check this connection first - the flat cable should be clean and completely inserted.
If this dosn't help: is the backlight of the broken display still working? It's a bit tricky but possible to disassemble the display, remove the backlight desolder and exchange it.

I replaced the lcd screen. Now when the my camera is turned on i have a black screen with nothing on the lcd. Not even a menu display. I have pushed the lcd ribbon as suggested but no luck. Need advise....


The backlight is not turning on, it's the smaller of the two ribbon cables on the LCD assembly.

Make sure you have a backlight on your new LCD (not everybody sells it with the backlight!) or reuse your old backlight with the new LCD.

Check the backlight cable, is it ripped? Even slightly? If so, you need a new backlight.

Hi..i am using compaq presario cq 40 and screen is flickering.i had it checked and they told me lcd is the problem but they didnt even bother to check.they just turned it on and they told me that i have to...


When it flickers, can you still see the text when the screen goes dark?
May have to use a bright flashlight set right on the display to see
the text on the screen beside where the light sits.
That will tell you if it's the backlight.

You can also look at a grazing angle into one of the edges to see if the
backlight is flickering when the display does.
When it's cold, does it start with a slight pinkish color? That can be
a sign of backlight going bad.
Anything interesting happen when you flex the cable by moving the screen?

I'm not saying it's impossible, but I've never seen software cause
consistent screen flicker. And if the vga port doesn't flicker, sw is
even less likely the problem.

If you bet the odds, you'd bet on a bad display cable.
Won't hurt to try replugging it.

If that doesn't help, then your monitor may be dying....

Camera turns on fine. I could view picture and all. Just that when I switch to camera mode a video screen is blacked out. Why is that?


Your have a "Display" button that toggles thru different display modes .. one of the modes turns off the LCD backlight .. that useful if you are in bright light and dont need the backlight .. you have a very nice "transflective" display that works great in bright light without the backlight ... you can get more shots with the backlight turned off on each battery charge .(about 25% more) .

so each time you operate the display mode button you will get a different display .. one shows a hystogram .. one turns off the backlight and one puts the camera in a normal mode ..

if everything is working right then even with the backlight turned off you should be able to go outside or any brightly lighted area and see the picture on the screen ..

Nikon d80 top display lcd panel no longer displays anything


If it 1) Does not work well after a FULL charge. and 2) the camera is OLD. All I can say here is your battery is OLD (bad). If the Charge time is Quick this also also an indication of and OLD tired worn out battery. They are useless after 7 years...... and they are very weak after 5. Some go bad after as little as 3.

Did you accidentally hit the "DISPLAY" button on the back of your camera? It manually turns the display on and off to save batteries.

Calendar function


The IR-500 allows you to display pictures in a calendar. When still pictures and movies are shot, the camera automatically sets the pictures to the calendar according to the shooting date. The calendar can be displayed in three ways: as a one-month display, 12-month display, or multi-year display. Select the desired date, month, or year from each calendar display.
