1/2 my screen is white, 1/4 my screen is black and the remaining 1/4 shows my picture. It has not been dropped. This occurred after removing & re-installing chip to download to my computer.

Re-installed chip. Installed different chip, no change.

Every time something strange happens to a camera, switch it of and on again. Of one step up. Remover the battery and reinsert it. Next step is to remove both the battery and the memory card. And when you are there, please check if nothing is wrong with the memory card and its contacts. Only a spec of dust in the camera, on one of the contacts, could split the fun.
Check is all contacts (Memory card and battery, and also the ones in the camera) are clean and shiny. Special the contacts on the memory card should be not bent or have a dent.
Try to rescue the pictures on the card to your computer, and when it is in the memory card reader, format the card, with FAT32.
If the card has any defect, your computer will tell you.
If after trying everything here, does not change the situation, please visit your dealer or a certified repair centre. (or start saving for a new camera.
CLEANING of contacts only use a dry cloth or cotton swabs. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.

Hi

Just responding to your last comment as I could not get back in to the other one after you accepted. To be honest the screen alone will cost you around £45 ($70) delivered from the internet if you can get one. Nikon have a general policy of issuing supply parts to authorised dealers only and this makes it a bit more awkward to get these screens. They can be got but it might take a while to source one.

If you can source a supplier you could certainly try fitting it yourself. There are several videos on YouTube that would give you a good idea of how to do this. However $70 for a camera like this is a lot considering how much value can be had in the market for a new camera with similar spec.

Guess it will come down to how attached you are to that particular camera! Sometimes Ebay throws up a camera with a good screen that is otherwise for parts but again its a chance to take but you could be lucky and pick something up there for as little as $5 - $10.

Wish you luck anyway and thanks for using FixYa!

How do I fix my Visio tv when the screen suddenly goes almost black and white?


Hi Evan
Essentially it's a computer inside a modern Flat Screen TV these days. Not a lot that the average person can do...
But... if you feel capable of opening the back....
Once you get inside and check for loose or poor connectors,
I would be looking for leaky Electrolytic Capacitors.
Usually in the power supply section.
Look for brown fluid leaks on PCB & a very slightly puffed out or bowed top on the cap. (ready to explode)
Take a picture of suspect. Take note of Polarity (black stripe) & write down uf & voltage & temp values.
eg 1000uF @ 25v
To prove you are on the right track, you can connect a similar rated Cap across (in parallel) the existing Cap.
Depending on space etc. Even by short extension wires.
Power up & see results. Fault Gone or Not?
Then...
Unsolder & Remove suspect Cap & try to replace with higher voltage rating & slightly higher uf capacity depending on space available around the components.

Good Luck

Suddenly no picture only a black screen.The tv has power the little vizio turns on white i can hear the audio and change through the cable channels with my comcast remote.The vizio remote will turn the tv...


Look through the ventilation slits at the back of the TV with the room lights out. If you do not see white light light bleeding through the back, you have a back light failure. It could be the inverter circuit which lights up the CCFL ( cold cathode fluorescent lamp ). You will need professional help to replace it and could cost you about 70 to 100 $ to fix.

I HAVE RED DOTS ALL OVER ANY BLACK COLOR OF THE PICTURE


Could be whats known as dead pixels, this is tested be showing up a black or white screen. Microsoft paint or word will do. If an area always has dots then dead pixel. However if it doesn't constantly remain a dot then, some-thing else. Dead pixels come about due to age.
A technician will be able to diagnose your problem by performing white screen test.

Dark burn in? at top and bottom of screen. TV is only 16m old.


PixelProtector is a tool for fixing stuck pixels, removing screen burn, correctly calibrating screens for optimal performance and gaining the best possible picture. Any large screen television is an investment. Poor set-up and calibration can degrade the quality of a television's image and severely threaten the life of the screen.
If you own a large plasma or LCD television with a DVD player and want to achieve optimum performance, PixelProtector is highly recommended.

3 ways to remove burn-in
1. PixelProtector for Removing Screen Burn.
2. downloading a free program called JScreenFix
3.
Screen Burn Removal Using Your PC.
If you can hook your PC up to your screen burnt TV try this. Create a folder in 'My Documents' called 'Screen Burn'. I'm not joking keep reading. Now open up a picture editor like 'paint' available on all Windows PC's. When you run 'Paint' a blank white document is what you should have in front of you. That is exactly what you need. Select File – Save as and name your picture 'white'. Be sure to save it in the folder you just created.

Next you need to click on the 'black' section of the colour pallet at the bottom of the 'Paint' window. After you have selected black click on the 'Fill' icon (a tipped paint pot) on the left. Now simply click in the middle of your white picture and it should become totally black. Select File – Save as and name you picture 'black'. Again be sure to save it in the folder called 'Screen Burn'. You don't need paint any more so you can shut it down.

Now right click on the Windows desktop an select Properties – Screen Saver and using the drop down list select 'My Pictures Slide Show'. Now to configure the slide show. Click Settings and configure as follows. Slide the bar to 'More' so that pictures change frequently. Slide the next bar to 'Larger' so pictures fill the whole screen. Now click the 'browse' button and find the folder you made called 'Screen Burn'. In the next set of options:- Check 'Stretch Small Pictures', Un-check 'Show File Names', Check 'Use Screen Transitions' and finally un-check 'Allow Scrolling Through Pictures With The Keyboard'. Save the options.

Different versions of Windows might have slightly different configuration options but as long as the result is a completely filled (no borders), alternating white and black screen with no writing then it will probably help.

Now set your screen saver to 1 minute and leave the keyboard and mouse well alone.

As with the 'snow' and 'signal pattern' leave this for a while to see some results. If you use your TV for the PC then it might be a good idea to use this as your regular screen saver and run it frequently.

The only snag is the headache of connecting the PC up and the fact that removal technique will not be running at your screens native resolution.
