Question about Olympus Camedia C-2100 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

Backwards Image on LCD

My daughter was taking pictures the other night when she noticed the LCD screen seemed a little fuzzy. When she looked at the pictures she had taken the image and all the information was backwards. Seen through the viewfinder everything was o.k. I haven't seen anyone mention this problem before. Is this the beginning of the "sudden death syndrome" I've heard about? Thoughts and suggestions are most welcomed. Thanks.---John

Re: Backwards Image on LCD

The manual for this camera is very well documented. I can see where poor lighting can cause out of focus and the aperture not set right and the camera moving during the shot but not the image being backwards if I understand you correctly. Sounds like she simply shot into a mirror. Did the camera get dropped by accident? That could knock an "internal connector" slightly off causing the electrical signals to cross. The connectors in these cameras have extremely small traces and it doesn't take too much to misalign a trace with the connector. I'd explore that possibility first. Then call Olympus on this one you might need to service the camera. PS: I use to test my tech's trouble shooting ability by reversing connectors to get the same effect.

Take a flash light for me and point it at the screen while the pictur got taken if you see a image then your little lcd backlight went bad, A camera shop can replace this little lcd there about $32 bucks.

Night time pic mode

The one thing I have noticed about the DV179, is that it takes poor quality photos and video, unless it is in pure sunshine... :)

Yes, zooming in does distort the pic's, so be sure to put the stabilization mode to 'on', this does help a bit.

Lines on screen

Hi, I have the same problem with my sony DSC-S700. I think someone drop it, and it took pictures with horizontal line specially outdoor. I noticed that the lens shutter does'nt open and close. All I did was to tap on the lens several times and everythings back to normal. I so happy my camera is working again. Thanks to your idea. Brenton
