Question about Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lines running vertically through LCD

Hello, today I just dropped my 720SW (1st time). It only fell about 2-3 ft. Unfortunately, after the drop when I turn on the camera, the screen only shows multicolored vertical lines. I can still take pictures if I point & guess method and the pictures are still pretty good, but I can't see what I am viewing on my LCD. I bought this camera a year and a half ago and it seems it's out of warranty. Can you recommend how I can fix the display myself? If not, do you know where I can download a service manual for this camera? Any help would be great.

The left side of my laptop screen wet all white with red green yellow blue lines running veretical lines running through it. looks like someone spilled paint on it


Hello,

Vertical lines are usually caused by 2 things, either your graphics card is going bad or your screen is going bad. How you check if it is your graphics card is by plugging it into an external monitor (if you have one).
If the lines still appear on the external monitor then you know its the graphics card going bad, which isn't probably worth fixing these days if you take into account how must laptop pricing has dropped.

I hope this helps.

Best of luck!!

Samsung LN-S4692D - Vertical lines (>15) & static on screen


this sounds like a scan board gone ,, if you check ebay youll see two things,
1, other tvs for sale with the same fault (It might give you a clue to the fault ie , which board )
2, the same tv as yours with a broken screen ,

i dont know how good you are with taking things to bits but i personally would buy the tv with the broken screen and start swapping over the internal boards ?

Have you checked your home insurance policy for broken tv,s
it may have fell of its stand when you were'nt looking?

Doubt that it's the inverter. Sounds more like one end of the LCD cable has been knocked loose. You might wan to check those.

Vertical lines obscuring image


The matrix is dead. Probably because of an intensive light got into the lense while the camera was in night mode. It's dead. Nothing can be done.

Screen only showing vertical lines after being dropped


The damage could be either in the LCD screen or the connection cable. Open the screen assembly and check the connection cable first.
In case it doesn't work you can find replacement LCD screens here.

Vertical band on new monitor


Without a second thought, send it back.
When you say the monitor has not be dropped, wht you are really saying is it has not been dropped by you.
There were alot of hands involved in getting it from the production line to your house.
At any stage it could have been dropped or given some form of impact (normally in transit)
That fault is in the panel itself and cannot be fixed.
