Canon rebel xsi lcd is faded and doesn't shut off

To eliminate the chance of the screen actually being damaged due to the camera being dropped, here's a little test you can do? Click on the MENU button and scroll to the 5th icon, the first setting you should see is LCD Brightness. Look at the scale and make sure the little top white arrow is in the middle, that setting should give you a normal brightness for the screen, if it is towards the left side that would dim your screen, move it to the middle using the side buttons around the main SET button. If the little white arrow is already set in the middle, then you screen might be damaged after all? Theres not other setting for the LCD brightness other than that one.
As for it not shutting off, do you mean the camera doesn't shut off or the screen doesn't shut off after a few minutes?

Kodak C513 dark screen

There should be a setting for the brightness. Unfortunately the manual does not show this. You can check step by step all the settings of the camera to search for the setting, or you can take it to a Kodak dealer for repairs and they will show you exactly what is wrong. If the camera is under waranty, go directly to the dealer for exchange, as this could be a camera fault.

White screen on my camera and can take picture picture is black colour


i think the LCD has been set to a very high brightness set the LCD brihtnes lower from the settings..

better more is to reset the camera to the default settings this would set the aperture, shutter, Exposure, LCD brightness and other settings to defaults and this would save from any unwanted changes than required

Bright White Screen

Most likely either your LCD has gone bad or the cable has either shifted. Even if the LCD is pure white, the LCD can still fail or be bad.

Here is a link to a guy who does repair and replacement for LCD, and also sells the LCD if you want to replace it yourself.

White Screen

I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?

If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.
