White screen The other day my camcorder 's side screen went white. I can still see and use all of the functions through the view finder/eye piece but when I flip open the side NOTHING! I've reset and there is plenty of battery power. This will be the first Christmas my grandson knows that Santa Claus is coming, PLEASE HELP!

I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem. Actually, I have that problem after I get it to turn on. The first part of the problem is that I can't get mine to turn on - with a fully charged and fucntional battery - without removing and rplacing the battery and switching on/off numerous times. Then, when it does come on, i get the exact white screen problem you decribe in your post above.

No picture in eye piece viewer


How long have you owned the unit? How long has it been doing this? Do all other playback functions work just not record? Once I have more information I will be happy to assist you further so please don't reject my solution until we have solved your issue.

Hi,
If you close lcd screen in its position, do you see image in eye piece (view finder) ?
If yes, then replace flexible ribbon connecting wire between camera board and lcd board to get picture in lcd screen.
Let me know if you need part number of flexible ribbon wire.
Thanks.

View finder in samsung VP- W90 very blurred. Focus not the problem.


If the focus is blurred on the view finder, assuming you are talking about the eye piece and not the lcd, then it is a out of focus issue. Even though when you view it it's ok. Some cameras still have a focus knob somewhere to focus the eye piece.
