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!

The screen is completely black when viewing to take pictures, if you take a picture the only thin that appears is the same black screen as before taking it?


Many older cameras began to have dried up electrolytic capacitor. It can be cured by having power on for a while to have moisture restore the capacitor function which is to power the camera on needed current surges. If you don't use it often, you lose it.

My camcorder is model GR-D20E. When I turn it on, there is error msg on the LCD screen: Please wait. Condensation, operation paused.


Hi.

The camera has got moisture inside it and that is why you getting the message on-screen.

I suggest you find a dry warm place to put the camera in for about 24 hours for the camera to dry out. Take out the battery when you do this.
The condensation should have dried up after 24 hours and should be fine after that.



Regards.

When you open the camcorder, it appears on the screen: PLEASE WAIT, CONDENSATION OPERATION PAUSED. JVC Digital Video Camera> Model D70AS


This is usually an indication of high humidity or dampness inside the camcorder. Some devices say "DEW" instead. Most of the time, a simple "airing out" will allow the moisture to be evaporated away. The amount of time required for this to happen is dependent of how damp it is inside the camera and how dry the air is when trying to air it out. Obviously, dry air will evaporate the moisture much quicker than humid air. If you can power the camcorder from your home's electricity - you might want to leave it on so that the electronics inside the camcorder can heat up and significantly reduce the evaporation time.

If the camcorder message doesn't clear after a reasonable period of time, it may require professional servicing. I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate my reply - thanks!

My blackberry has water damage dried it out,powers up when you install battery then screen goes dark ,acts like keyboard isn't working ,how do i troubleshoot?


Do not turn on the phone again before taking out all trapped moisture. the phone and battery should be completely dried out. Take out the battery, sim card, etc. You will need to wrap each piece in newspaper, the phone and battery and then put in a rice container and wait at least 24 hrs. The newspaper and rice will eventually absorb the moisture. I hope this helps!

Camera got a little wet. Now it says battery not compatible.


Please remove the battery and use an hair dryer to warm very carefully so as not to damage the camera. Keep it off for a long time so that every trace of moisture is lost.,However if the battery was put in before removing traces of moisture, there is every possibility that the camera electronics could be damaged. In such case you will need to remove and clean/dry the boards , use soldering iron on components to remove trapped moisture underneath, repeat the work to ensure there is no traces of water. Now set this back and try , If the same error comes abck, I am afraid the camera electronics section has encountered a defect which might need a replacement. Get help from the Sony serrvice centre, take estimate and decide. Hope this helps you . Good day

Okay heres what you do guys!!! Just happened to me today and I fixed it. Mine was at the bottom of a hottub for 2 days XD.

The power in the phone needs to run out
then, plug the phone up
wait about 30 seconds(download screen should be up and it is charging xD.)
Then Take the battery out and unplug the charge from the phone
Stick the battery back in
Wait about 30 more seconds
Hold down the Red Phone untill it turns on.

FIXED! YAYYYYY!

Mobile phone faulty


The screen's internal parts have catched moisture and are damped and thus getting hot & dry air makes the moisture get off. To fix it permanently change the screen's curcuit board or contact support

Black screen


leave the battery out of the phone and let it sit in a dry place for a few days and see if it will dry itself out. do not place the battery in the pone until a day or so has passed and try again. unfortunately liguid/moisture damage can easily render a phone unrepairable unless you have sufficient equipment and replacement parts. simply allowing the moisture to evaporate and not placing the battery in the device until said moisture had evaporated is the best solution from your end.
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS SOLUTION!! :D
