If pictures are coming through to your screen, then the ribbon cable to the viewfinder has probably broken( they are quite brittle with age on this model). Can you see if it's broken when you hinge the viewfinder up? Replacement of the ribbon cable is the only viable option.

When I look through the view finder window. Everything that I see is out of focus...even the little numbers at the bottom. The pictures come out fine in Auto focus, but in any other mode, I can not tell...


Okay looking at the back of the camera where the viewfinder eye piece is right side upper corner you will see a small wheel partially covered by the rubber rim of the viewfinder by the side of it you will see a small line with a + and - that is a diopter that actually tunes the camera viewfinder to your shooting eye. Pretty fancy eh? Anyway what I do is set the camera in auto focus and focus on an object in a brightly lit room and when the little green light come on in the lower right corner of the viewfinder which is the auto focus confirmation light start turning this wheel one way and another until the image you see come into sharp focus. I don't know about you but I need about three clicks to the + side before everything looks sharp.

No Image to Shoot


There is a temporary fix that works sometimes but eventually it will stop working alltogether. If canon can't help, might try this:

MY CAMERA ONLY DISPLAYS EVERYTHING IN GREE


almost sounds like it's in night shot mode, but I don't think to 2000 has that. sometimes during shipping the board to board connectors may have come loose. I would check for a loose one off the 3 ccd assembly. Thats a pretty good unit you have there, worth looking into. be carefull taking it apart there is a some 4 pin ribbon cable that can rip, just take it slow. I work on alot of these. they are a workhorse.

Optical viewfinder zoom isn't working


no ideas on how you can get it working. There is I should think a connection adrift. Try the Konica Tech Support Team But be prepared for a zilch answer- I don't think a 'repair' will come into the equation
