Question about Olympus Camedia C-50 Zoom Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black line across display screen

My husband borrowed my camera and accidentally dropped it on the floor. It hit tile flooring and the sliding cover that turns the camera on and off snapped off. The camera still works however, there is now a black line in the upper left and lower bottom corner. If I zoom in the line goes across the entire screen. What should I do to fix this or is it beyond repair now?

HP pavillion dv9000 has black horizontal lines across screen and looks like a snowy background

Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the black lines and snowy background, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same black lines ans snowy background it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Dropped my LG CF360 cell phone on the tile floor. phone operates fine but screen is now blank. it appeared to be fine immediately after dropping it but now the screen is blank? any ideas?

yes. this is a common fault with any phone that falls on the tile floor, especially if it lands using the screen(even if it doesnt, the screen might still be affected). the only solution is to send it to a repairer because it would require the attention of an expert due to the crack or damage done to the main display screen which in most cases would have to be replaced with a brand new one

Dropped my camera, now it's broken.

Take the batteries out and recharge them and also look in the battery compartment for any cracks or contacts out of place. what your describing is that the camera can't get enough power to load up.
