    Hi



    I just got a DSC-S40 from a friend. I actually swoped my previous camera for this one. When I switch it on, the lens seems to get stuck and not come out all the way. I makes a grinding noise and does not show any picture on the screen. The flash goes off when I push the button, and the little guide dots on the lcd screen shows, but the the screen stays black. I am able to view the photo's that are on the camera taken before this problem, but am unable to take any photo's now. The shutter opens and closes when i switch it on and off, but the lens seems to get stuck half way out...help???

What do you do when camera says internal memory filled.


Digital cameras store pictures on their internal memory. Often users transfer their photographs to memory cards, because memory cards store more data and are accessible in computers, other digital cameras and other devices. When you want to move pictures stored on the internal memory card, do so through the camera's menu
1 Place the memory card into the digital camera.
2 Turn on the digital camera.
3 Access the digital camera's menu. Digital cameras have a button labeled "Menu" near the LCD screen. Push this button to open the menu.
4 Select the Pictures option. Select the photos on your internal memory using the "Select" or "OK" button on the arrow pad on the back of the camera. Click "Copy" and choose "Memory Card" to copy the files to the memory card. If there is more than one picture that needs copying to the memory card, perform this step for each picture.

Have a good day! Smile : )

Olympus Stylus 850 SW LCD screen will not turn on. The camera itself will turn on and take pictures but i must do it blindly. i cannot see the pictures nor can i see through the lens.


If you camera is built with a viewfinder there is usually an option to de-activate the lcd screen. Usually if you press the display or play button on the back it will re-activate. Also try to access any of the menu's by pressing the menu button. If this does not work also then the LCD is probably bad or not making connection. You would have to find a local service center for repairs. www.phototech.com is the local service center in NYC or you would have to send directly to Olympus in Woodbury Long Island.

Good Luck

Cannot zoom; cannot push menu button and access other shooting modes; cannot push '>' button and review taken pictures. basically, it will not allow me to change anything via buttons on rear of...


Has this camera encountered any water or moisture? Sounds like the Ribbon cable to the
option panel is either loose or has been compromised. It could have come loose after a
drop or hit, compromised cables are results of water damage or moisture damage.

Canon Powershot SD1000: LCD screen display


Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!

Display will not come on


Turn your command dial to P or to auto. Press the menu button. The screen should light up with the main menu. If it does not, find the two buttons on your camera that has small green dots beside them. Press both of these buttons together at the same time until the LCD screen flashes on the top of the camera. Now try to access the menu again. If that does not help, call 1-800-nikonux for their 24/7/365 tech help

Fuji F700


If you mean while you're trying to take a picture, one configuration option for the F700 is to turn off the LCD when taking pictures and use the view finder-- this saves battery power. If you press the DISP button to the right of the LCD should turn on.
.
To turn the LCD back on-- Press MENU/OK (you should see the SELF TIMER screen). Press RIGHT ARROW to select the SET option. Press UP ARROW to select the SETUP option. Press MENU/OK. You should see the SET-UP screen. Use the UP/DOWN Arrows to navigate the options; use the LEFT/RIGHT Arrows to cycle through the options. The IMAGE DISP and the LCD options control when the LCD is powered on.

Nikon d40x LCD screen stopped working


Have you tried the 'Menu' button? If you've turned off 'Review' in the settings menu, the screen doesn't show anything after you take a picture. If the screen doesn't come on when you push the 'Menu' button with a charged battery installed, your camera will need to be repaired.
