Sony cybershot t300 lcd screen remains dark when switched on


Hi,
Your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. If the problem is due to your dropping the camera, you might be out of luck.
If you have not dropped your camera and still facing this problem, then contact service people to replace the CCD imager in your camera .

Hope this helps .

Screen appears dark


Have you tried to adjust the brightness to see if it not just on the lowest setting. If that doesn't work you can try to unplug the connection for the lcd and plug it back in to see if that works, if not the the lcd backlight is probably burnt out which would require replacing the whole lcd.

Sony TRV308 Camcorder is not picking up light when recording


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Do your videos come out dark when you play them back? Or Is it dark while you are recording?
If it's dark while you are recording, is it dark in the viewfinder, or the LCD screen?

If your videos come out dark when you play them back, check the manual exposure. Hit the exposure button and turn the sel/push execute wheel to change the exposure to lighter.

If you are looking through the view finder to record and it's dark, check to make sure the window is clean.

If your LCD screen looks dark while your recording, put the power switch to player, hit the menu button and scroll down to LCD, select it and turn the select wheel to brighter.

I had to guess at what your problem was due to the information you provided, so I tried to cover the most obvious. If I failed to answer your question, please comment and be more specific.

Hope this helps, and thank you for coming to FixYa.

Sony Network Camera SNC-M1(No Picture)


According to Sony the camera is a discontinued item. The cost to repair (repair option not available) would be more than purchasing a new one. I am in the process of purchasing a replacement camera.

AOC spectrum 7 Glr ?


Hi,

Initially, I would suggest that you do a full reset, that is unplug the monitor from the mains and the PC for a couple of hours (preferably overnight). The idea is that the monitor will reset itself to default factory settings. Thereafter try again.

Should problem persist, pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I talked to sony assistance and they said nothing really helpful. They told me to try:

- Putting everything default again
- Taking out battery and holding down the power button for 30sec and putting back the battery,

None of these worked.
