View finder not functioning properly

Hi guys, the LCD's view is great but when I look through the view finder (especially with the night shot function on) everything is dark and blurry with a red hue? any suggestions or fixes to this problem would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, and thank you, that takes care of the bluriness but everything is still red when viewing thru the viewfinder? When looking through the LCD everything is colored like it has always been. Two really different views for sure. The red hue I get thru the viewfinder is sort of like viewing with the "sepia effect" on but instead of a light brownish hue there is a weied shade of red/orange hue? Now I am starting to occassionaly get some green horizental lines flashing thru the viewfinder? Something must be shorting out or maybe just wearing out? What do you think? Thanks again!

Why is there nothing showing in my lcd after I turn camera on?


This is an indication that the LCD is not functioning. You haven't indicated the make and model of your camera but if it has a view finder, try taking some picture and view them in a computer. No view-finder? Just point and shoot some subjects and view then from a computer.
Are the pictures OK? If they are than you might want to maintain that style while looking for replacement parts of service tech.

Fujifilm FinePix S1600 The monitor display is not working. Can it be replaced and if so how easy is it?


It could be that you have it set for EVF which means that you are using the tiny view finder instead of the LCD screen? It should have a button close to the view finder labeled EVF/LCD, you can alternate between the LCD screen or the tiny viewfinder? This function if mainly to conserve battery power or if you are out in the sun and cannot frame a shot and so you use the view finder like the old cameras, hope this might help you?

How do I switch from a view finder to a lcd monitor on my canon rebel xs

I have an eos rebel digital. I can't figure out how to get the lcd screen to work as a view finder. Its a few years old.


The default setting is to just press the set button while you are ready to take a shot. However, this setting can be changed in the settings menu. So, I would recommend that you check your menu settings and look for live view settings. Also, not all EOS camera have this live view functionality available.

Hi,Try adjusting the LCD brightness. I guess you can do it by pressing the UP button (may be different in your camera).

Hope this works, :)

Use LCD instead of view finder in Nikon D40


Can't be done. Digital SLR cameras only view through the eyepiece, unless they have a "live view" function, which the D40 does not. The LCD is therefore for viewing an image after it is shot, and setting your menu options.
