    thank you.... is that a repairable problem? if so, do you know an approximate price range for fixing the CCD imager? I'm wondering if i should just buy a new one.

    When I switch on my F410 the screen is purple and flashes. Intermittantly it is fine and good as new??

    I have the same problem - I can still see pictures stored on the camera but can't see anything through the viewfinder etc It happened after being out in the cold - is that a coincidence? If it is the CCD imager does it cost much to repair and is it worth it or should I just buy another camera?



    Thanks

If it is only 2 months old,then you still have warranty.
A purple lcd, viewfinder and photo is a 100% CCD failure.
If out of warranty, not worth the repair.

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!

Problem with lens


It is possible you have the display turned off... Some cameras allow you to do this to save battery.

A loose connection perhaps
A gentle taspe may restore it - or it may not.

Purple lcd display


Hello tonyj111, If your old pictures look fine on the display, then the problem is related to the ccd sensor itself. The purple color is displayed because of a problem in the signal transmision from the ccd sensor to the camera's main processor. This is done using 3 channels one for each primary color (RGB red green blue). If the connector to the sensor is broken, or got out of place (loose) because some mechanic shock or symilar, the data processing woun't come out right. It is purple because your camera's processor mess up blue and red signals therefore resulting same purple instead of blue or red colours. In order to fix this you will need to either send the camera to a service center to have those connections checked (if your camera is still in warranty you will want to do this) or ask me for further instructions if you wish to try to dissasemble the camera yourself. In either way the problem is fixable and in most probabilities a cheap fix will work. Good luck
