Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon A520 - LCD screen works but very very dark!

This is my friends camera so I dont know if it was ever mishandled but the camera works fine however the screen is very dark and you need to use a flashlight to see the screen. If you press the DISP button it is very clear that the LCD screen turns off as it should. All features work on the camera but is there a way to increase the light intensity on the screen? I searched online but havent found any clue as of yet. thanks!

Yes I beleive in the tools menu there is an LCD brightness option. Hit menu and to the right twice for this menu I think. (maybe in the shooting menu though.)

Dropped lumix but now everytime I switch it on its tells me to open the lens cover even when it is open.


It shows a problem with the motorized lens mechanism.I will prefer unscrewing the camera only if you are such an expert because there are very fine mechanics inside the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 which could be easily damaged if mishandled.Please take it to the nearest authorized service center.
I know this is not the solution you were expecting but I won't allow a much bigger damage due to mishandling.Your valuable feedback would be appreciated.Thanks for choosing Fixya.

Hello!!! I need an asistence with my computer screem is so dark... and it has been working fine but yesterday I was watching a movie and after an our becomes to runig alitle beat darking and more dark so...


This looks like a backlight problem. Every LCD has a backlight the older ones have Fluorescent lamps and newer ones have LED.
Most probably your laptops screen is equipped with a fluorescent lamp.
You may need to replace the backlight or the inverter of the screen.
I would not recommend doing it at home because messing with a LCD screen can damage it (make it unrepairable) and you might get electrocuted.
Take your laptop to a qualified technician or if its under warranty you might get it fixed for free.
Thanks. Please feel free to contact me for further assistance.

My samsung l100 has a cracked screen, where can i get it replaced?... ...dont want to buy a new one!


you can call samsung if you want the screen replaced, but they will tag your unit was out of warranty since a cracked screen means that the camera was mishandled

i believe they have a flat rate for out of warranty repairs

V570 Dual Lens, will not switch to ordinary lens.


Hi, My V570 works fine on widescreen lens (the default on startup) but when I zoom up to switch to the other lens it goes to a dark blank screen and will take a similarly dark blank picture. I can hear the zoom activating as I click it so I think that is ok. I opened the camera
