    wow i thought i was the only one. my camera the dsc w80 is doing the same... i charged the battery and everything. Everything's working, You just can't take pictures anymore. Can heat damage the camera? Because it happened on my vacation where it was around 90 Fahrenheit.... I mean I didnt drop it or it didnt get wet or anything....

    I'm having close to the same problem, when I go to zoom my camera, it tells me to turn it off and on again. But when I turn it back on, the problem persists.



    WARNING: if you swap memory cards or batteries with another camera, I have noticed the problem is transferred to the other person's camera, could this be a virus? (that is how the problem started with my camera, I borrowed her memory card on spring break bc her battery was dead)

    I recently just had the same problem... the "turn power off then on again." The pulling and twisting trick worked great. Can save you alot of headache, and some money, too. Was worried I wouldn't have it for Christmas if I had to have it sent out for repairs.

Hey everyone,

Yeah, what you have to do is to kind of fool around with it like a computer. I held on to the power button for about 2min with/without the battery.

Finally, what I did was as the camera was turned off with the battery out of it. I put the battery in and turned on the power button while holding on too it for about 30 sec. It's working just fine now.

Hopefully it works for you too. Sya

When you boot the machine, use the proper key to enter the BIOS and check the date and time. If it is wrong then the BIOS battery is bad. Replace it.

Got an alpine cda 9855 the screen keeps goin black but if you touch the button it comes back on it has like a 5 sec delay then it goes black but still plays any help


Blackout Display Mode: When the Blackout mode is activated, the display turns off to reduce power consumption. The additional power made available by turning off the display helps enhance sound quality. If a button is pressed during the Blackout mode, the display will illuminate for 5 seconds before blacking out again. Blackout Mode On and Off (CDA-9855 only) When Blackout mode is turned on, the display will turn off to reduce power consumption. This additional power enhances the sound quality. Press and hold FUNC. for at least 2 seconds to activate the blackout mode. The display will turn off. If any button on the unit is pressed during the blackout mode, the function will be displayed for 5 seconds to show the operation before returning to Blackout mode. To cancel Blackout mode, press and hold FUNC. for at least 2 seconds.
Copied from the alpine user manual..
Hope this helps

ViewSonic VA720 Screen displays briefly then goes blank.


it looks like the Inverter's gone in your screen, it works like a starter in a florescent tube, it 'kick starts' your screen to come on. Turning it on/off many times eventually 'kick starts' your screen and makes it come on eventually.
