SOURCE: A95 Power shot Images on the LCD screen are monochrome,blurred with stripes

Unfortunutly this sounds like the cable connecting the screen to the main board is either loose or damaged. I would return it to the store you got it from.

What does exp.sim mean?

In Live View mode, evaluative metering is always used to determine correct exposure, though exposure compensation is available. The Exposure Simulation function will attempt to recreate the exposure level that would be obtained with your current settings on the LCD display. This may raise noise levels of the live view feed beyond what could be expected in the final image, since it must operate with a fast enough shutter speed to achieve its required refresh rate. The aperture also remains open by default, and so the exposure simulation doesn't indicate the areas in focus unless you configure the Set button to provide depth-of-field preview, and then hold it down during live view. Exposure Simulation will attempt to continue even with depth of field preview active, though this may raise the live view noise levels even further. If you pass outside the range where the live view feed can simulate your exposure, the "Exp. Sim" icon near the bottom right of the LCD will blink, as a warning.

Does this camera have an option to take black and white photos?

Unless you state the make and model it's impossible to tell you for certain, but most digital cameras have that option.

In practice though, it's a bad idea. It's always better to shoot in colour and then convert afterwards: there's more information captured so you can use the colour data to manipulate the monochrome image, and once you choose to shoot in monochrome to start with you can never get the colour data back again.

Manipulating the unwanted colour data on a pc means that you can correct washed out cloudy skies to make them more dramatic and can choose which colours in the image are light or dark on the monochrome image. Think of things like red lipstick, for example. It's easy if you shoot in colour to ensure that the lips are sharply defined by making red the dark colour to contrast with lighter skin tones. You don't need expensive programs or knowledge, just the control sliders in the bog-standard picture viewers in Mac and Windows will do the job. Always save any edits as a copy of the original to preserve the original data.

If you still wish to shoot in monochrome then add a comment with details of your camera make and model and I'll try to provide further assistance.

I have taken photos on my sony cyber shot DSC-N1. There is one photo I want to convert to Black and White and thought I could do that on the camera itself but I have gone through the menu and cant find...

You can set the camera up to capture images in black and white, or more accurately, monochrome (always a bad idea) but your camera cannot convert a colour image into monochrome after capturing it in colour. I'm unaware of any cameras able to do so as it just takes too much processing power.

By far the best way is to always capture the image in colour and to then use pc/Mac software afterwards to convert. The recorded colour information is of great use in giving added tonal depth to a monochrome image and can be used to simulate the effects of using the coloured filters which monochrome photography relies on to alter image contrast.

Model LC-SVGA 860 suddenly lost color, everything is monochrome.

If it is a DLP type projector and not an LCD, then you've broken your colour wheel. I would recommend professional replacement as it can be a bit fiddly and you need to source an exact genuine part.

My samsung monochrome laser mfp printer has colour ink in it and it will not print anything in colour. My comp is windows 7. It will only print black and white and I want to print a coloured document....

The printer you have got is a monochrome printer i.e. it can only print in black. If you require colored outputs you would require to go in for colored printer.

Thank you,
Have a good day.

Dark horizontal bands appear on projection

Your matrix is failing. If the unit is under warranty, send it back.

The matrix is the bit that allows light to come through of each colour. If its failing one colour won't get through. If the circuitry is failing, more than one colour wont get through.

That option isn't available for the D70 some manufactureres call it live view, sort of like looking through a video camera's viewfinder and it is what is going to to get recorded or what the picture is going to be. Some point-and-shoot cameras have that but no viewfinder. Digital camera owners have expressed a desire to have that option on DSLR's for a long time now so camera makers are adding that feature. It comes at a higer price now, but soon it will be a standard just like video for DSLR's (D-90). The reason it has been tough to add is that it is a real power drain on the battery to keep the display on and have the auto focus and metering going at the the same time which is what has to happen if it is a "live view". You can keep your display (of pictures taken on longer from the menu) but that's not really what you are after. Hope that helps.
