Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F707 Digital Camera

View finder has a green tint to it

I have this annoying problem with my camera involving both the LCD and finder. The display has a green tint. The best way to describe it would be that it's about the same as it is in either night shot mode. The pictures that are taken are perfectly normal but it's hard to get a true sense of the target and some of the pictures are out of focus. It's also tough to send things like menu items and which is acutally selected. I had this problem a couple of years ago and it just fixed itself one day. No such luck this time. I've toggled all the controls, done a manual reset and anything else I could think of.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I took your advice, kind of, and gave it a couple of love taps on the bottom of the chasis and it's back to normal. I'm guessing that there is indeed something loose inside but since I've never opened on of these I'll keep going with the love taps as long as they work. Thank you for your quick response!

Well.......Love taps actually worked. Thanks, I was freaking out and really didn't wan't to take it apart or smack it around. But the eye strain from the green tint made me sick after a few minuites. One little tap on the bottom right fixed the prob, actually this reminded me of old Nintendo games that everyone had a special solution for. Thanks again!!!

Is there another solution to this problem as hitting a 1000$ camera makes me uneasy?

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?

Off lens,view finder is not workink


The view finder is the little window on the top left of the camera. If you want to use the display as a view finder, you have to press the button with the camera logo. It is called the life view mode. you use the same button to switch off the display. Be aware using the display, will drain the batteries quicker. Somewhat faster then with modern cameras.
see page 19 of the manual.

There is a line appearing from the center of the view finder till the end. This comes on only when the camera is switched on


if the line came in photos when you seen them from PC then its a Camera CCD fault, Or If the photo clear in PC view then its a LCD fault.

I don't know how to use the lcd screen when taking pictures


Many cameras that have view finders do not support use of the LCD display to compose or frame a picture. This is generally to conserve battery life of the camera. Most of these cameras limit how long a picture is displayed on the screen to 10 or 15 seconds, immediately after taking for the very same reason.

The exception would be a camera that lacks a view finder - or has a menu item that allows the user to compose the picture on the LCD in addition to the viewfinder. Some manufacturers call this "live view". Check your camera manual to see if it is supported. If so, be sure to buy extra batteries!

I hope this helps & good luck!

No picture on lcd and view finder


First of all if u r unable to view only pictures on the lcd, I consider to go as mentioned below:

Check out the manual of the camera for correct settings for lcd display. If you cannot find in the manual provided alongwith the camera.

Secondly if u find no display on lcd, approach the nearest customer care service centre for checking the lcd display, which may be defective.

My display screen wont come on


There is a button that changes from the View Finder to the screen. (LCD or EVF) .
Can you still see through the viewfinder ? -
If you can't see through the view finder or on the LCD then there is a connection problem inside the camera. Which is a NIKON technician job - sorry -- Ray

Hi
I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.

My sony DSC-H1's LCD is not showing anything...but I can operate the camera with its view finder... Do you have any idea why it happens? and is there any master reset option for this camera?


I have a similar SONY camera. Turn the camera on and to the right of the viewfinder (or perhaps in a different location on your model) there will be a small button that reads, "FINDER/LCD". Press that button once to see if your view switches back from viewfinder mode to LCD display mode.

Query Regarding No Display on LCD (view finder) in Canon Digital IXUS 750


With the camera on, have you tried pressing the DISP button once? It's the lower left button on the back of the camera. It manually turns the display on or off as desired to save batteries (you can then aim through the optical viewfinder).
