Check the "Exposure Compensation" or something similar. If it is low, will make the photos look darker. So set that to "0" if it isn't already.

Canon 40D playback on viewfinder flashes all white to black. On a wedding gown it is horrible on playback to review.


You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of the image that have been overexposed so much that all details have been lost and gone pure white. Usually this is a bad thing, and the camera is warning you of it. The proper fix is to reduce the exposure to bring back some of the details. If you simply want the camera to stop the flashing, see page 117 of this manual.

Camera not displaying images as seen through viewfinder. The screen is black. Image controls and info can be seen but the picture is just black. Takes photos which are also black; but previous photos...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras, particularly for the SD1000. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.


By the way, my wife's SD1000 also has this problem every once in a while. I easily fix it by using the following steps from the link: powering on the camera, opening and closing the battery door, and flicking the end of the lens barrel with my fingertip (or you can tap it with a pencil as discussed in the link).

When I take a picture it looks fine on the screen. When I then review my pictures there are red lines going through the picture.


Hi,


The problem is due to CCD/CMOS (the chip that physically captures light and creates the digital image) has broken. If this is the case , a repair would cost approximately $80-$130. This is the most common problem for a camera that takes blank/lines in images but where the menu display functions and old photo's display normally.Please confirm that these stripes are normally behind the menu's. Check to see if the new images are downloaded correctly and if the video function works normally. If this does not work, it supports the idea that the chip has gone.Take it to a repair,if the CCD has to be replaced then a new or refurbished camera would cost only slightly more.


Thank you !!

Photos look like they have a pink overexposed wash on them.


This is generally an issue with the imaging chip. I've seen this on other cameras and it's typically been a blown CCD chip (which "captures" the image....) If it's a new or under warranty camera, send it to the manufacturer, if it's out of warranty, it's cheaper to simply replace the camera.

Can't turn off/disable optimize image screen- nikon d80


Ok, all you need to do is:

1.Hold the camera normally like you would take a picture.

2.Turn it on and review a picture.

3. While looking at a picture, take your index (pointer) finger and rotate the front "wheel" right under the shutter release button. This switches the viewing mode, and should solve your problem.

LCD screen flashes


There is nothing wrong with your camera - It is doing what it is meant to do!

The purpose of the flashing areas is to drawn your attention to parts of the image that are over-exposed. In an ideal world nothing would ever be overexposed, but if the image has both very dark and very bright areas, the camera cannot capture both - something has to give! The flashing areas are just to let you know.

It's covered on page 52 of the manual.

Canon s230 Blank LCD screen...no pictures


Bad news :this is a CCD sensor problem and gets progressively worse ; eventually the sensor outputs nothing and you will get no image in capture mode at all ( note that you can review pics that were captured properly , but can not capture new images without distortion ). This is a  4 mega pixels CCD sensor from a Canon camera :
