The CCD image sensor of the camera has failed. It is the component responsible for capturing the image the camera is focussed on, display it on the screen and capture it. If its malfunctioning you are bound to see problems like these. Getting the imagesensor replaced should resolve the problem

My screen on the camera is white how do i fix it?


Hi there its repairable. But your question not so clear. If the image come proper but the LCD screen is white then the problem occur in LCD screen. So just replaced the screen. But after click the snap if that's white or dark ( no image ) then your lens connection or lens only damaged. So please let me know the image is came or not. Both are repairable. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

My camera will not focus. I have a 50mm lens and 200mm and neither will focus


Which exact lenses are you trying to use? The N2000 (aka F301) is a manual focus camera so if you're trying to use autofocus lenses you have to focus them manually. Sorry if this seems an insulting suggestion, but you did state "my camera will not focus" and I've learned that on FixYa it's best not to assume any prior level of knowledge with regard to those who post questions.

The next thing to check is whether the viewfinder has an eyecup attached, if so slide it upwards to remove it as sometimes they have a corrective lens fitted if the previous user needed corrective optics. If your vision is fine (with glasses/contact lenses if necessary) then a corrective lens on the viewfinder may make things look blurry.

Other than that, the only other possible cause (other than a pair of broken lenses) is if the focussing screen has become dislodged downwards (or somehow fitted upside-down) then the viewfinder image will be unsharp. Officially the F301/N2000 had a fixed focussing screen but it could be replaced with one of three designed for the higher specified F501 (which does have autofocus), and if not seated correctly you'd get the focussing issue you describe.

You can test if the focussing screen is the problem in one of two ways:-
1. A visual inspection (you may need to get a more experienced photographer to take a look at it);

2. Set the lens to focus at infinity and at the widest possible aperture and take a photograph of a distant object (ignoring the blurred viewfinder). process the film and inspect the photo. If it's sharp then you have a focussing screen problem. If not, then it's a lens problem.

If the problem is a poorly fitted focussing screen then it may just need reseating or to be removed and refitted. It's vital to do this in a dust free environment and to avoid getting fingerprints on the screen. Some screens sit in a hinged frame which then clips into place when pushed up, others push into a pair of clips towards the top rear and then the front is held in place by a spring clip: it's been a long while since I worked on the F501 or F301 so I don't recall which system is used.

I hope that you've found my answer to be of use, if so please return the favour by rating my answer.

If the image is very dim and/or the screen is very dark, then you most likely have a backlight problem. To determine the exact nature of the problem, please follow my instruction - click on this link :-

YOU CAN ADJUST BY SLIDING THE SETTING TO THE RIGHT OR TO THE LEFT. AND EACH TIME YOU ADJUST CLICK APPLY AND OK. AND IF THIS WILL NOT WORK FOR YOU IT MIGHT BE YOUR MEMORY CARD OR THE VIDEO CARD. IF THIS IS LAPTOP THERE IS ALSO SETTING RIGHT ON THE KEYBOARD TO MAKE BRIGHT AND DIM. HOPE THIS WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Try this first.

Set your lens focus to infinity and focus your screen at a far away object (like a distant lampost). If it,s not in focus, then you have a misaligned mirror. Adjust your mirror so that a infinity setting, the split-screen image merge well to form a well focussed image. Hope that helps.
