Camera turns on fine. I could view picture and all. Just that when I switch to camera mode a video screen is blacked out. Why is that?


Your have a "Display" button that toggles thru different display modes .. one of the modes turns off the LCD backlight .. that useful if you are in bright light and dont need the backlight .. you have a very nice "transflective" display that works great in bright light without the backlight ... you can get more shots with the backlight turned off on each battery charge .(about 25% more) .

so each time you operate the display mode button you will get a different display .. one shows a hystogram .. one turns off the backlight and one puts the camera in a normal mode ..

if everything is working right then even with the backlight turned off you should be able to go outside or any brightly lighted area and see the picture on the screen ..

Screen flickering when turning on laptop and sometimes the laptop turns on after flickering and sometimes doesn't turn on at all after flickering. Just stays black.


You may have a faulty inverter or loose power inverter connection. OR
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

The screen is dark on my e71; the back light is off


It seems you have a backlight failure. If you can still see the screen on the device (as far as texts and pictures), you would simply need to replace the screen in the device.

Pictures come out red


Hey JRochester,
I would make sure the white balance settings were not changed somehow. Depending on your level of expertise I would set the white balance to auto if you are not familiar with white balance, and if you are make sure the white balance is set to your shooting conditions each time you capture and image.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Flash icon


Same problem with the red flash icon. I can take a picture if I turn off the flash as well, but have to turn off the flash every time I open the lens. Have had the camera for 5 years and haven't had a problem. We needed to replace the lens cover recently and after we replaced the cover we started having this flash problem. It was working fine before the cover came off which leads me to believe we've changed our settings somehow....pleas
