Re: camera viewing screen greyed out

If this also shows up on the pictures it could be a defective Sony CCD issue. If so, Sony will fix your Minolta camera for free (with free shipping) regardless of warranty. You need to do this before March 31, 2008 so get going! See this link:

The Dimage models that Sony is accepting for the recall repair are:
Dimage 7HI, 7I, A1, Xi, F300, XT, X20, S414.

Camera won't turn on to take pictures~

This is a common problem related to batteries. Use 2100mA or higer batteries fully charge batteries. This problem occurs when you use alkaline batteries or faulty NiMH batteries. To solve the problem try with new fully charged NiMH batteries.

Camera still takes pictures but LCD screen remain black(lit, differnet from when screen is off) at all times. Batteries are fully charged.

Please make sure to check if the battery is fully charged. Second, check the menu option for battery saving mode and turn it off. If the battery is getting old and not charging fully anymore the priority of the camera is the shooting mode.

Camer keeps shutting's burry and powers

Digital cameras require lots of power. Bad electrical contacts can cause lots of problems so battery and camera contacts must be cleaned properly. Batteries may be fully charged, but will be viewed as low if contacts are not really good. The LCD screen is a low steady load, but when lens extension, optical zoom, focus, and flash charging are added in the capture mode; the load is very heavy. Bad contacts make cameras do strange things like making bad pictures or shutting off with the lens out.
Do not overcharge.
Reset by removing power up to one month is the ultimate non-physical repair for DVD recorders and other software using digital devices. Digital cameras reset to original settings if batteries are removed. Time required varies with function and camera, but try one minute. Check display and setup menu for non-auto functions and date/time. Remove extra memory to eliminate this as a possible problem. Insert fully charged batteries and restart the camera.

I have a ex-z77 it is just under 1 year old the camera does not switch on even after the battery has been on charge. when the battery is charging the charger light flashes, im sure the light used to stay...

Your battery will no longer take a charge. Replace the battery with a new one. Your computer probably does not supply the power to the camera. You need a fully charged battery in the camera to view or transfer photos onto your computer.

Canon powershot sd400. power up, camera functions work, but in picture taking mode, my screen (view finder is black). also in videw mode. viewing previous pictures is ok. battery is fully charged.

There is usually a button for turning the screen on and off, or only on for previewing (browsing images). (and sometimes there is an option for having the screen on without the On-Screen Display)

I don't know exactly which one on your camera... sometimes the up button, sometimes there is a little symbol.

Play with it, and eventually you'll find the right button. =-]

Camera wont stay on, please help

Possible that the Lens Mechanism is out of sync. If its still within warranty just bring it in and have it serviced. If not I may be able to help you out but it requires dismantling the camera,..

If any one knows a quicker and easier way maybe they can post it here But as far as experience goes thats what happened with mine,

Hope this helps

Grey screen

Clean , outside of lens, go to menu reset to factory defaults, try another new battery, take out memory card and wipe lightly with alcohol. If none of this works contact or call customer support for brand. You may have dead pixels, if that is the case it's time to buy a new camera. Jimmy

Can view memory card but wont power up to take pics

Try using brand new fully charged rechargeable batteries like NiMH or NiCd. Also try viewing though the computer via USB.
