Re: view finder

I had the same problem, it is the switch inside that is broken which allows you to switch back and forth between viewing pictures and taking them. There isn't really a fix besides getting the switch replaced and I am having a very hard time trying to find parts for mine. Good luck.

Cant see through my view finder on powershot s3 is

Your camera has an electronic view finder. To switch between the view finder and the display, you have to press the DISP. button several times and look what happens in Shooting mode and what in Playback mode. If only the display will come on, and the viewfinder stays black the camera will have a defect. If you can't use the camera anymore, because you only can shoot with the viewfinder, consider buying a new camera, because any repair will be more expensive than a new camera with the same quality.

There is a line appearing from the center of the view finder till the end. This comes on only when the camera is switched on

if the line came in photos when you seen them from PC then its a Camera CCD fault, Or If the photo clear in PC view then its a LCD fault.

How do I switch from the view finder to the lcd monitor on my canon rebel xsi

You must be in P, Tv, Av, M, or the A-DEP modes.

Enable Live View in the camera’s Menu.
On the second set-up menu screen go to
“Live View function settings” then "Live View Shoot"-> enable.
After this all you need to do is press the Set button.

My sony DSC-H1's LCD is not showing anything...but I can operate the camera with its view finder... Do you have any idea why it happens? and is there any master reset option for this camera?

I have a similar SONY camera. Turn the camera on and to the right of the viewfinder (or perhaps in a different location on your model) there will be a small button that reads, "FINDER/LCD". Press that button once to see if your view switches back from viewfinder mode to LCD display mode.

LCD not working

There's a good possibilty that your mode switch is broken. Same thing happened to my Z6. I was able to source replacement switches, and can replace them.
