Dropped camera-two corners dark


My son dropped my camera.  I immediately turned it on.  The display screen looked fuzzier and I noticed the two two corners were dark.  I took a couple photos vert and horiz and when reviewing the pictures the dark corners are still there.

Is there anything I can do about this??

Check what the actual pictures look like when they are downloaded to PC or to print. The problem may only be on the screen. It may be very expensive to replace the screen, but you might be able to live with it?

Good Luck

Sony cybershot t300 lcd screen remains dark when switched on

Your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. If the problem is due to your dropping the camera, you might be out of luck.
If you have not dropped your camera and still facing this problem, then contact service people to replace the CCD imager in your camera .

Hope this helps .

Hi, my son dropped my LZ2 camera and now it starts when I power it on, all menus and functions seems to be ok, but no image is displayed in the LCD. Any ideas what's going on?

The LDC screen most likely broke the screen did not crack by the actual underlying LCD screen broke the only option is to replace the screen or have it replaced at a local camera shop

I have canon sd 750. its lcd gets black. Shows pictures etc but view finder remains dark. display is zz. what to do?

Look for DISP or DISPLAY button in the lower-right corner of the back of your camera. Press this once while the camera is turned on. The DISPLAY button manually turns the screen on and off. This is to save battery power for extended use. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place.

Canon power shot sd1000 black dot on lens

If by saying the upper right corner of the lens you really mean that there is a dark spot on each image AND the rear display, there may be dirt or dust on the lens itself. Clean the lens with an optical quality cleaner. Do not use paper towels and Windex or the like - as paper towels can scratch the lens.

It is also possible that the dark spot is a "stuck pixel" on the image sensor inside the camera. There is no way to repair a stuck pixel outside of replacing the sensor. Any dark spot (regardless of source) can be edited out by using image editing software. This will allow you to to make the dark spot less noticeable - or practically invisible.

If the dark spot is on the rear display only, it can also be a result of a "stuck pixel" on the display itself. This should not show up an images, but only on the display. There is little that can be done outside of replacing the entire rear screen.

There are other things that can cause these problems, but those listed above are the most common.

I hope this was Very Helpful and good luck!

My son dropped it and the flash no longer works. Pictures still look great outside but all inside pictures are super dark. How easily is the flash replaced and what is an estimated cost so I can plan to...

Contact kodak if you want an estimate for repairs.

If your camera can change the exposure, exposure settings. You could just change it so your camera can absorb more light in dark places.

When I turn on my camera it immediately turns off and lights up E18 in the bottom left corner of the display screen.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

No power

My son dropped his flip. I popped the battery out and put it back in and the Flip immediately turned on.

I was actually looking for the reset pin hole but never found it.
