    same problem: it looks like Las Vegas at night, seen through several tabs of lysergic acid. Fuzzy, blurry and bright. Don't know if it is the ccd or the lcd

    I have the same problem. I think it's because I dropped it and it's wrecked forever. I would like to hear there may be a way to fix it!

    I have this problem also, but it's a completely blank screen instead of a distorted image. All other functions work (menu items, view previous photos, etc.). The solution below does not address the SP-350 specifically.

    I have the same thing! My 2 yr old camera is showing just a pink screen now. It started going all multi color then finally went to just pink.

multic coloured screen - 12b809f.jpgHere is what my pics look like. It was a progressive defect, some good pics, then these in between. Now they are all bad. I found this info below... even though the SP350 is not listed, I am going to call Olympus tomorrow. Good luck!

The camera takes blank images, or the image is distorted

  • There are a number of digital cameras models sold by Canon, Fuji, Konica-Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Ricoh, and Sony (and possibly others) which use CCDs (image sensors) manufactured by Sony which have had a high rate of failure. Details can be found at http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1128958202.html
  • Most manufacturers will replace defective CCDs affected by this problem at no charge, regardless of warranty status. This service advisory (technically, it is not a "recall", since recalls are related to safety issues) only applies to certain models and certain serial number ranges.
  • If your camera exhibits the symptoms listed above, we recommend following the link or calling Olympus Customer Service at 800-622-6372. We do not replace the CCDs in Camedia or Digital Stylus models.

My Nikon D50 in picture play back mode is giving pictures in multi colour not as pictures ?


I'm not sure what you mean by "multi-colour mode" but this page shows all of the possible playback display modes and describes them. Hopefully this helps you. I use a D7000 which is quite similar and I've never seen a multi-color mode. Nikon D50 SLR Review

It could be the game. The cord would be fine if it's happening after the game has been going a while. Or does it happen at a certain point in the game? That would still point at the game, of course.

hi

i think the LCD has been set to a very high brightness set the LCD brihtnes lower from the settings..

better more is to reset the camera to the default settings this would set the aperture, shutter, Exposure, LCD brightness and other settings to defaults and this would save from any unwanted changes than required

Sony Tv 29 Inchs, The Picture Keep Swiching off and replaced by fable shadowi pinky multi colour light


Your symptom description is a little vague. Is there sound? Is there a full screen? Assuming there is a full screen and sound I would look for bad solder joints on the boards. Particularly the CRT board but really just resolder all the connections in the set. The KV series has been plagued with more than their share of bad solder joints. Give this a try first and if this doesn't solve it give us a more detailed explanation of the problem. Good luck.
