Hi Dear!
http://www.baytan.org/prak/pdf/CanonFTb.pdf
Please check with page 21 on the manual. However, it looks like a loosen piece from penta prism supporting piece moves around. It won't give shutter functionality but it could cause metering problem sometime. It has some timing involve with disassemble, I won't recommend you to opening the camera unless you are ok with lose your camera broken. You should bring to your local repair shop.
Hope You Luck! A Professional Camera Clinic Guy!

Screen or main board failure. If it is still under warranty you may have a chance bit if over a year or so old - not worth considering for repair- though you could try. take a look through the file here http://www.fixya.com/support/p423-nikon_coolpix_5600_digital_camera/solutions

SOURCE: Query Regarding No Display on LCD (view finder) in Canon Digital IXUS 750

With the camera on, have you tried pressing the DISP button once? It's the lower left button on the back of the camera. It manually turns the display on or off as desired to save batteries (you can then aim through the optical viewfinder).

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:

  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

When I look through the view finder window. Everything that I see is out of focus...even the little numbers at the bottom. The pictures come out fine in Auto focus, but in any other mode, I can not tell...


Okay looking at the back of the camera where the viewfinder eye piece is right side upper corner you will see a small wheel partially covered by the rubber rim of the viewfinder by the side of it you will see a small line with a + and - that is a diopter that actually tunes the camera viewfinder to your shooting eye. Pretty fancy eh? Anyway what I do is set the camera in auto focus and focus on an object in a brightly lit room and when the little green light come on in the lower right corner of the viewfinder which is the auto focus confirmation light start turning this wheel one way and another until the image you see come into sharp focus. I don't know about you but I need about three clicks to the + side before everything looks sharp.

How to reset the 'toner out' message in the Canon MF4350d laser printer?


This problem bugged me for months! Selecting CONT. PRINTING as indicated by Small6363 allowed to print with the warning light on but did not solve the warning light problem. I eventually found a way to bypass the flashing light and warning message.

Underneath the cartridge, on the cylindrical portion, in the middle there is a small flat rectangle. This is the ink level detection spot. Cut a piece of aluminum foil of the same size and place it with a piece of scotch tape overt that flat rectangle. Voilà! No more flashing red light and no more out of toner message! Of course you have to monitor your level visually and change the cartridge when printing starts to fade.

Hope this helps!

Canon S1 IS:the "Information View" is stuck in display at powerup


I had exactly the same problem and I was very frustrated. Then I learned that Canon published a Service Notice in October 2006? : the CCD Image Sensor on some Canon cameras becomes defective. Canon says they will repair it free of charge for repairs and for shipping if your problem is indeed caused by a malfunctioning CCD sensor, even if it is out of warranty. I called them at 1-800-828-4040. I was offered 2 options.
Option #1): send it in for repairs. (If the CCD isn't the problem, they will repair it at a charge of at least $140.)
Options #2) except an offer for a newer camera (the SD 890 IS) at a greatly reduced price + shipping.
I chose Option #2. Good Luck.

Flashing red image


If the rectangular symbol has a droplet shape in it as well as the red line across it, it means there is condensation in the camera. The manual recommends that you take the tape out, leave the mechanism open and allow the camera to dry out in a suitable environment for 2 -3 hours - presumably a warm dry place. It suggests you check it then and even if the warning has now gone out to wait another hour before using the camera again. I have downloaded a copy of the instruction manual in Adobe Acrobat format from the Panasonic website. Jack
