LCD woont turn on properly but the camera takes pictures while the screen remains black or in my case dark grey as its not totally black.

The water has ruined the LCD, water and electronics seldom mix, you are lucky it still will at least take pictures. If it is a high end model then send it back to the Factory repair center listed in the user manual (or phone number to find a repair center).

is this a CCFL LDC
if yes the inverter is bad. (a card tiny, and thin)
its old LT.
the books are gone now.
the service book tells you how to replace the CCFL inverter

1: external only
2: internal only
3 both
4: auto. (i think only my newer HP has this)
mine is Fn+f4, but on a relic compaq, gee buy the book,
or google search for it for weeks,

next time post to HP< there is no COMPAQ for years.
hp owns it. totally

Canon A520 powershot camera - the display panel is dark

Use a memory card and memory card reader. If the images come out black you have a bad CCD in your camera.

Screen has gone white

Either your LCD is damaged or the cable connecting it to the rest of the camera is loose. I would suggest taking it to be repaired.

A85 LCD stays off in all modes except "stitch"

Hi Toonz
I have exactly the same problem as Shimoni and Antonio with my 4 years old A85.
But sorry, its not a problem of the CCD, cause we all get a clear actual picture on the LCD but just in stitch mode! In any other shooting or playback mode the LCD is dark. So the sensor must be working well and Canon Germany doesnt repair for free. Our failure is different and we have to pay much more than the camera is worth ;-((

Kodak Z650 LCD is black

Check to see if there is a battery save mode for the viewfinder. Check the instruction manual for this.

It is also possible that the drive circuit for the LCD display has a fault. It was simply coincidential that it went bad while you were transfering pictures.

Olympus Evolt 510 LCD Issue.

I purchased a olympus evolt 510 - having problems taking picture in the dark. The camera will take 30 second to focus and sometimes will not take a picture at all. Also I find when I am in doors the camera will take a substantial amount of time to focus on an object this is specifically when the flash is in use. The flash seems to be adjusting flickering constantly. Seriously Annoying.

If you can be some assistance I would deeply appreciate it.

Pictures are black

My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?
