When I snap the picture the recorded image is also smeared. What's up here? It has been this way for months and thecamerahas always been inside and dry. Thanks

    Exact same problem as described above. I've tried taking out the batter and also used the reset button as described in the manual w/no success.

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos


Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
extended.

My Dell monitor developed a thin, dark line horizontally across the screen. Within three months, a second line appeared. I can view the screen, but must look above or below the lines at times. Any idea...


this occurs very commonly in all LCD monitors... this is because each and every cells in the LCD monitor are energized by the vertical and horizontal electric fields placed around the frame of the monitor... if a particular field does not gives the power to the associated cells to it, then the entire line of cells will not operate and together they looks like a single line...This is what happened in your case...


have a look at my tips for replacing the LCD screens on monitors, by clicking here....

Monitor problem.


This may be intentional. Some higher end cameras don't use viewfinders to take pictures, just to review them.  
In looking up your camera, it appears that you *can* use the LCD to take pictures.
My guess is that the camera's set up to shut off the LCD when you get the camera close to your eye, to take a picture.  Try taking a picture with the view finder from farther away from your face.
It's probably a safety feature so you don't go blind from the light on the LCD.

I recently bought a Nikon D-40 and was wondering if there was a way to take pictures using the monitor rather than looking through the view finder. I have looked at the directions numerous times yet can't...


Nope. The LCD is only for viewing images in playback mode, and for setting the menu choices. Very few digital SLR's have what you are looking for, which is most commonly called "live view". Frankly, it isn't a very easy thing to use on any camera I've seen, because you need to lock the mirror in the up positon, view your image on the LCD and compose the shot, then lower the mirror before you can take the picture. Once you're used to the eye-level viewfinder, I think you'll find it's just fine. Enjoy your D-40.

Blurry image in view finder


Digital Camera and Video Phone Number 1 800 222 7669 - it's automated, just say your model number, then "no" to accessories, then "no" to connection problems, then "picture" for ccd issues. Its that easy!

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor


Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.

Image being displayed is all colored vertical lines


I had this problem a lot on Labtops. The problem is that it has been unliquifed in the screen. This means that the screen has been damaged or has got really hot. Also its has been on for along time. LCDs go bad real quick and can be a hassle when you need the infomation in the thing and have no display. When I had this problem on my labtop, I used the external bay to use another monitor so I can work on it. So I say that nothing can be done to fix it. The only way to see your stuff on there is to use the video out on the recorder and try to check your stuff. That multicolor lines you saw is becoming major right now in LCD displays. I hope this solves your problem.
