    As i have already said it is the problem of the display not that of CCD. when shooting information is displayed it, it is not showing uniform means that characters na numbers are not visible in good manner. assume that the number F/5.6 in which some pixels are removed then it will appear hazy. that i want to know the reason.

    This is a firmware problem then rather than the screen as such.
    Contact the Nikon support site- there may be a downloadable software fix or it may have to go back for revision.

When i take a photo appear broken with lines...


Hi,

When you view the images on a computer screen, do the lines show up then ?
Try printing some photos off and examining them again as well.
It may be some of the pixels in the LCD screen have gone bad, or it may be that your sensor is quitting.

Thank you for contacting FixYa

We have had our KDF 55 WF655 set for 5 years and replace a bulb about 12 months ago but not the pixels have gone bad showing a blue shadow and now, even worse the center of the screen shows a green hole


Hi,it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.This is how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo So basically the 3 Lcd chips that create the colors and image are going bad and that is why you get that color discoloration.Contact Sony or look for your light engine online.God bless you and your house!

Gateway laptop seems to boot, but no screen and cannot do anything. Seems to boot up, but nothing at all is on the screen (not even the cursor). Power and wireless lights are on, can hear CD drive scan and...


Can you hear sound playing as if it were loading the Windows desktop? If so, there are are a few things to check for:

  1. Look VERY closely at the screen once the laptop is on. Can you make out very faint images? They will be hard to see and it's best to be in a well lit area at the time. If you do see images, then the backlight on your LCD screen has gone out. You will need a new LCD most likely.
  2. If you don't see any image at all, try plugging an external monitor into the laptop and booting up the laptop. If you see an image on the external monitor but not the LCD, then you may have a bad inverter/cable/LCD.
If you cannot get an image on the external monitor either, then your video card may be bad. Considering that a lot of laptop video cards are built-in to the motherboard, you may be looking at having to replace the motherboard of the laptop (about 2/3rds the cost of the laptop).

There may be other problems at hand, but those are the most common I've found in this type of situation.

Cannot take pictures thru lcd screen on d40x DSLR


The D40x is not capable of Liveview - i.e. looking at the LCD to take a picture. You are mistaken.
If you want Liveview, you need to buy the D3 or D300 cameras. The D40x is an entry-level camera.

Dead pixel


Please read the WHOLE of this guide before starting. Software Method
  1. Try running pixel fixing software. Stuck pixels can often be re-energized by rapidly turning them on and off. If this fails, complete the following steps.

Pressure Method
  1. Turn off your computer's monitor.
  2. Get yourself a damp washcloth, so that you don't scratch your screen.
  3. Take a household pen, pencil, screwdriver, or some other sort of instrument with a focused, but relatively dull, point. A very good tool would be a PDA stylus.
  4. Fold the washcloth to make sure you don't accidentally puncture it and scratch the screen.
  5. Apply pressure through the folded washcloth with the instrument to exactly where the stuck pixel is. Try not to put pressure anywhere else, as this may make more stuck pixels.
  6. While applying pressure, turn on your computer and screen.
  7. Remove pressure and the stuck pixel should be gone. This works as the liquid in the liquid crystal has not spread into each little pixel. This liquid is used with the backlight on your monitor, allowing different amounts of light through, which creates the different colors.

Tapping Method
  1. Turn on the computer and LCD screen.
  2. Display a black image, which will show the stuck pixel very clearly against the background. (It is very important that you are showing a black image and not just a blank signal, as you need the backlighting of the LCD to be illuminating the back of the panel).
  3. Find a pen with a rounded end. A Sharpie marker with the cap on should be fine for this.
  4. Use the rounded end of the pen to gently tap where the stuck pixel is - not too hard to start with, just enough to see a quick white glow under the point of contact. If you didn't see a white glow, then you didn't tap hard enough, so use just slightly more pressure this time.
  5. Start tapping gently. Increase the pressure on the taps gradually for 5-10 taps until the pixel rights itself.
  6. Display a white image (an empty text document is good for this) to verify that you haven't accidentally caused more damage than you fixed.

Tips
  • If the pressure and tapping don't work directly on the stuck pixel, start moving outward around the stuck pixel. If you see the pixel flicker while doing this then you know where you can focus the pressure and tapping techniques rather than directly on the pixel.
  • Many people report success with this technique but these instructions won't work in every case. It may take a few attempts to make sure you are pressing exactly on the stuck pixel.
  • These instructions will fix "stuck" pixels, not "dead" ones. Dead pixels appear black while stuck pixels can be one constant color like red, blue or green.
  • An alternative, but similar technique involves gently massaging the stuck pixel with a warm damp (not wet) soft cloth.
  • Alternative technique to tapping: Using a rounded pencil eraser, push with moderate pressure into screen at stuck pixel.
  • If these instructions don't work, you can hopefully get the monitor replaced through your manufacturer. If your monitor falls under the specifications of replacement, get in contact with the manufacturer to set up replacement plans.

Warnings
  • Do not attempt to open the monitor as it will void the warranty and the manufacturer will not replace it.
  • Make sure you don't get any electrical equipment wet or it may break.
  • Some people claim that touching the screen can cause more pixels to become stuck, although this has not been proven.
  • Be prepared to suffer a complete loss; you may crack the glass when tapping or putting pressure on an LCD assembly.

I have an LCD TV. All of a sudden the picture colour has gone wierd. The best way to describe it is that it is similar to either a colour negative or one of those scientific 'false colour' images. This...


TFTs can produce a wide array of colors, but it takes an enormous number of transistors to make up a display, and a problem with any one of them creates a defective pixel on the screen. Typically this shows up as a bright spot on a dark background, caused by a damaged TFT failing to turn off a pixel. Most active matrix displays contain a few bad pixels, but a few bad pixels are not going to have much of an impact on the overall picture.
The properties of liquid crystal material can create problems with viewing angle effects, causing the image to darken, disappear, or reverse the dark and light tones when the viewer is not directly in front of the display (kind of like looking at the negative of a photo). The light bulbs make LCDs heavier than the plasma TVs (though they are still lightweights compared to CRT televisions.
Benefits of LCD TVs include a picture that can't burn in and doesn't deteriorate over time. Because of their flat-panel nature, placement options are plentiful, optimizing the cool factor over standard TVs

Lec screen flashing black areas when pictures are played back


Flashig areas show HIGH KEY or HIGHLIGHTS in image, these areas indicate where exposure compensation can be made. They also change to normal function on first magnification point.

Check the manual on highlights also good reading in the histogram section and you will start to understand about contrast and exposure.
Have FUN.
