Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

1 Answer

No image on LCD while all else seems normal.

Everything appears to be responding normally except that I see no image on the LCD or the electronic viewfinder. The Sony splash screen does show up a power on. The various settings do show on the screen, but the background is black. There is no lens cap on. When I switch to review mode, the LCD briefly lights up in blue, then goes black. When I press the shutter, the LCD show the recording progress bar, but no image. The Nightshot/Nightframing settings are off. I have a new battery newly charged which shows 22i minutes on the LCD. Any suggestions? Many thanks.

Sony had a certain issue with the CCD chip on this camera. If it's this issue, they'll fix it free plus $20 until March 2010.

Dell 1503FP works, but won't start up again for a few hours


Hello there.
Seems like electronics pack up but try an old one. disconnect all the data cables from your monitor side(HDMI, DisplayPort, VGA, USB etc.) or computer side if the ones on display are built-in. Leave only the power cable. Unplug the monitor`s power cable. Press the POWER button on the front of the display and keep it pressed for 45 secs. Plug everything back and give it a try.
Good luck.

Duplicate image in pink displays on the screen.


From your description, it sounds like an alignment problem. There are 3 LCD panels in the projector. Each one displays an exact duplicate image of the others except it's either red, green, or blue. Under normal conditions, the images precisely overlay one another so you get a sharp image. Due to age, heat, or vibration/shock(impact) it would appear that the red LCD panel has shifted a little, giving the "ghosting" effect. You'll have to have the unit repaired by a qualified tech. He'll have the special electronic equipment needed to align the panels properly. Before sending the unit in, try a reset in the menu. Sometimes, the projectors can shift the image electronically, using math algorithms which will try to auto-sharpen the display. Hope I was able to help!---Rick

Vizio 42" LCD with Screen problem


Find the LCD Controller board (TCON). Disconnect the cables from it to the LCD panel. Carefully re-connect them. Make sure the cable is properly positioned in the connector. You may have to do this several times to get it work. The flat cables are a problem.

Check the card isn't set to write protect mode with the switch on it.
I will assume the picture is viewable through the LCD and everything else appears to be normal.

Canon A520 Everything works, except the button you take pictures with. It wont work.


I need more information about what symptoms you are experiencing. I am going to guess that your shutter is stuck closed. This would cause a blank image to show on the view screen and your captured pictures. The regular icons and text would still display normally. Is this what you are seeing? If not please explain further what is happening and I will respond again with more information. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
