Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Camera turns on; however,l it will not take a picture. The screen is black except for some varied charachters. I have tried a new battery from Radio Shack with the same problem. Two "camera savvy" people told me that it's the camera not the battery. The camera was purchased in July 2008.

    The camera will not reset. Maybe I should just scrap it and get another one.

Hi

are you able to navigate the settings and menus? are you able to view old pictures?

    The same camera is sitting here next to me I got this 2008 also, few months before christmas.



    So do you get the white Sanyo text on the blue background? Turn it on and press the menu button then press the flash button or right two times to get into setup, from setup select Sys. Reset, press SET press down or the timer/delete button to select Execute. And press Set to reset the camera.



    Are you able to do this reset?

    Do you have warranty on it? I would suggest to contact sanyo for your country and see if they will repair it for you.



    http://sanyo.com/



    Select your location from the website Contact their customer service and ask about the warranty service.



    Or if you are outside of warranty you can get a free repair estimate for example from www.advancecamera.com/repair

If you can play back captured images without any problem then your camera has a faulty CCD sensor. If you can get hold of a new CCD sensor block for this model somehow then you can install it yourself. Otherwise camera has to go to your Nikon agent.

I have the exact same problem.
It started with the recurring "change batteries" problem - which was solved by using non-rechargeable batteries.
Now everything is working fine except there seems to be no light coming through the lense. Everything except reviewing mode is black and all my pictures are completely black. I dont know where the problem is. Could be the ccd. Might take this to the camera shop but im expecting it will cost over $100 to fix... any help?

I have a sanyo camera 7.1 mega pink and everytime i try and take a picture my screen goes black and shuts off without the camera piece going back in! I have almost the same problem except when I take a...


In the first case, if the camera turns off by itself with lens not retracting, try fresh alkaline battery. If that does not work, then the ribbon cable from battery charger to mainboard inside the camera is probably causing the problem.
An internal contact can also cause same problem.

If instead pictures are completely black, then there are several possible reasons:

1 There is a setting problem, remove and put back batteries to fix the problem.
2 The camera curtain is stuck and it is not opening.
3 The CCD sensor is faulty, more likely the ccd sensor contacts are broken.
4 The lens assembly has an internal problem.

Apart situation 1 , in all the remaining cases the camera will need repair.

Regards.

CAMERA TURNS OFF WHEN IN PICTURE OR VIDEO MODE


Does the camera turn off or does the screen go black? if the screen goes black but the power lamp stays green then the screen is just turned off (power save mode), If it’s just the screen to turn on the LCD. There are 3 buttons just to the right of the screen, press the center button.
