    Can view old pictures, but all new pictures display as a black screen. I'm thinking it has something to do with the lens, not the screen. Please e-mail responses to kglloyd@ncsu.edu thanks

    can view old pictures, but lcd screen is black and new pictures taken just black.

  • nate_b2 Nov 11, 2008

    Sometimes I can get the picture back and the camera will work fine for a while, but then it goes black again. Could it be a loose wire or a problem with the connection between the lens and the camera?

Go to the canon website and look the model up, there is a recall on it. the same thing happened to my camera about 4 months ago and they tried to troubleshoot it by phone and ended up sending me a shipping lable. They fixed it free of charge and when i got it back everything was fine.

I logged onto the Canon website and they show this problem with this camera. They said it is rare in the US and usually due to excessive heat or humidity. I have sent mine in to them and if they show that is what is wrong with it, they will repair it free. If it is another problem, they will call to let me know how much it will cost to fix.

Please see this link. The symptoms you describe indicate that the CCD image sensor is bad. Canon will repair this at no cost if they determine that to be the problem, regardless of warranty status.

Display shows invalid format after connecting computer in LCD tv


The PC video resolution is too high for the monitor to display, you need to set it to the native resolution of the monitor to get the best pictures. Please read here: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4873371-fixing_out_range_format_not_supported

Lcd is not showing the display


Hello,

As it been showing the display before?

If it has, it means the picture board of your lcd monitor as started malfunctioning or faulty.

All you need to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Blurred image in Samsung Syncmaster732nw monitor


For best pictures, you need to set your PC video resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, which is 1280x1024 @60Hz. Try that first before opening up the monitor to look for bad components.

My laptop is on and plugged to the monitor, but the monitor says no signal


You have to switch your laptop to a different display mode. Usually it's done by pressing Fn key and F8 - look for a description near this key showing rectangle / rounded rectangle, or text "CRT / LCD".
Usually there are 3 modes:
LCD (internal laptop display) only
LCD + CRT - the picture shows on both displays
CRT - the picture shows only on the external display, allowing you to set a different screen resolution, equivalent to the external monitor's optimum resolution.

Monitor shows picture for 1/2 second then goes black, 22" display. also will not show display menus. have hooked another monitor up and works fine. also have hooked up to another computor and problem...


When you switch the monitors, do you still use the very same vga cable? If you don't, then it's time to change the monitor. When it turns on and off inmediately it means that it's receiving the signal, but that's it. If it's brand new, exchange it.

Se198wfp LCD shuts off after 2 seconds or a couple if cool..


Hello,

If you can solder you may be able to repair your power supply. We have some pictures and repair guides on our web site at:
www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm The pictures show what bad capacitors look like, you can take a look at your power board and see if there are any bad caps on it. If so if you replace the caps you should be back going. If you want to send us a few pictures of your boards in the monitor, taken as close and clear as possible I may be better able to spot the problem caps.

Computer monitor flickers


Sounds like the lcd ribbon might have come loose. Or the lcd screen itself needs to be replaced. I have included a link here. The website shows detailed pictures about how to access the parts needed to fix this problem.

The ribbon i'm speaking of is just like the vga cable you use on a normal monitor. Since there is a limited amount of space in notebooks they turned this thick cable into a small flat ribbon.

Try to look and make sure all the connections are tight and as they should be. If nothing changes you will have to change the LCD display.

Samsung Monitor Syncmaster 913V Montior Screen shows patches of screen on desktop and playing videos


Sounds like your LCD panel has gone bad.

If the unit is under warranty, take it to a Samsung repair shop. If it is not under warranty, go buy a new one. LCD panels are usually more expensive then buying a whole new monitor.
