This is a common problem with the flip out display feature. Either the little image inverter switch is bad on the flip out screen unit or the flex cable unit going to the display is bad. Sometimes that switch can be cleaned ,but if it's the cable it will need replacement. This problem is a display issue however ,so if you can rotate the display in another postion to where you can use the camera you can still use it. It will not effect the recording made. I fix these all the time . Repairs run from $40 to approx $165. Larry's Electronics 916-362-8708 ledstiles@hotmail.com

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

The screen is going black like its in sleep mode when i open it up


I had the same problem. While rebooting the laptop the screen would be on for a few seconds after it finished rebooting then the display would go black. If you looked very carefully at the screen you could see the image was there but there was no light behind the screen to make the image visible.

I removed the black plastic display bezel cover that goes around the edge of the display screen to check out the lights and wiring. I found a small magnet that belongs inside the display bezel had fallen out of it's slot in the plastic bezel and was stuck to the inverter pcb (printed cicuit board). To fix this problem I secured the magnet into it's slot inside the display bezel with a bit of glue. After fixing the problem and putting the display bezel back together the laptop worked normally.

This magnet is how the laptop knows the lid is closed. When the laptop is closed the magnet is moved closer to a magnetic switch on the inverter pcb and activates the switch. The laptop thinks it is closed and shuts off the lights behind the display screen. When the magnet fell out of it's slot and stuck to the inverter it activated the magnetic switch all the time whether the laptop was open or closed. This caused the laptop to think it was closed and shut off the lights behind the dispaly screen as soon as the reboot finished.

There is 3 phase power to the inverter. Motor is ok. There is no dispaly and power led is off on front panel. no short circuit in motor or inverter ( combivert f5)


If there is no LED or display the inverter is not being powered up. Most likely a defective power stage which would need to be repaired.

My camera will no longer show the image on the screen when I am taking a picture with my Canon PowerShot SD1000 digital camera. Can this be fixed or is it time for a new camera?


most likely you have turned the dispaly off. find the display key and turn the screen back on.

another option is to go into the menu, then go to display and set it there.

Camera giving invertd image.


The camera displays an inverted image on the LCD camera screen or when you view the image on windows vista? If it is Vista what program are you using to view the image? If it is the camera check the settings on the camera for the special effects settings and see if the image inversion setting is on. Ther could also be a problem with the LCD display on the camera.

My hp dv 2000 notebook is not get any dispaly on screen


Defective CCFL backlight may has the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp)
has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp


Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Negative/inverted pictures


If the images in the camera are inverted , then could mean repair or replacement is the remedy and I suspect only replacement will be the answer.
When you say Photo Gallery- do you mean as displayed in your computer after uploading?
If so then an image editor such Irfanview or Picasa will revert them.
