Question about Aiptek A-HD 720P Flash Media Camcorder

3 Answers

Blank screen occasionally, when I turn the camera on, the screen shows nothing but black.  Yes, the lens cap is off, and the only way I can correct this is to take the battery out and reload it.  Sometimes I have to do this several times to get the LCD to show anything.

    when I turn the camcorder on, the screen is just black with a single line that lights up. Next, I can hear sounds when I change modes or use a button. I know it is on. I don't know what is going on.

Finepix gives message to turn off then on again. keeps foping it no matter what.

It may be your lens cap. If the lens cap is on, the lens cannot extend, so the camera will give you notice to turn the camera on and then off again (assuming you know that you must remove the lens cap before turning on again. If your lens cap is off, check to see if there is anything else blocking the lens or impeding it from extending.

The screen stays black. Yes, I have batteries, I do get instructions and images for video or camera, but I can no longer get a visual of anything the camera is aiming at. It's like there is a lens cap on...

Look at the front at the lens. Turn the camera to picture mode. Point the camera at a light above you. Take a few pictures and watch the lens.
You should be able to tell if is functioning correctly or if its broken. It sounds like it has been dropped.

Have you tried reading the instructions? How long did you buy it? Try to press the pad or stick like a button inwards. That is how I get the image to go on my digital camera. Did it work?

There is a good chance that the iris is stuck shut. Try tapping the side of the camera lightly to try and release it. If the camera can show you old pictures that are currently stored correctly, I would suspect the iris.

Olympus stylus 800 lens problem

Fair reasoning but I suspect incorrect.
The screen remaining black- do you mean that it shows no menu item either? or are you getting those but no image? clarify.
If you are getting nothing- is there a hint of 'shadow' images but not illuminated?
It nothing at all then this is an indication of a connector/ main board failure.
Lens not appearing could be the drive motor has stalled.
But the two items together could also mean something much easier to resolve- The battery[s] is not delivering enough power.
Clean the battery contacts. Make sure it is of the correct value as in the manual - if you have replaced it recently .
If that fails it may be new camera time as the likely cost of a repair will be high.
