Hi
I bought a new 1MB memory card for this camera and was dismayed to find that the screen went completely blank - I couldn't do anything!!!! It was my sons graduation so had to buy another camera!
But, have just resolved this issue by pressing the bottom right-hand side of the screen with a rubber topped pencil - it works!!!!
This camera may be old and chunky but it still takes amazing pictures.
Hope it works for you too.

It seems to be a mechanical problem that can be fixed by placing a bit of pressure on key points. Here is the fix that I did that seems to have worked fine...

open the battery cover
take the battery out
take the memory stick out (inside the battery case)
leave the battery cover open
carefully remove the 7 small silver screws (put them in a cup so you don't lose them!!)
slightly pry the front cover away from the camera starting at the bottom
wedge something in the side to 'pop' out the top retaining tabs towards the top
the front cover should now pop off the camra
Make small paper spacer #1:
Cut the adhesive strip off of a post it note.
Fold it over again about 5 times so that it has some thickness to it.
Approx final dimensions are 1/8in x 1/4in x 1/32in(??) thick
Stick it in the upper right corner of the black plastic lense housing.
See photos attached.
(There is a nice flat rectangle at that spot about the same dims.
This spacer should fit neatly right over that space.)
Make small paper spacer #2:
Cut the adhesive strip off of a post it note.
Fold it over again about 5 times so that it has some thickness to it.
Approx final dimensions are 1/4in x 1/4in x 1/32in(??) thick
Stick it in the bottom left corner of the black plastic lense housing.
See photos attached.
(There is a nice flat rectangle at that spot, but you want the spacer
to be a bit bigger so that it covers the vertical line in the plastic.)

Put the front cover back on the camera.
Make sure it is mechanically secure, but don't install the screws yet.
Put in the battery and memory stick.
Try it. You may have to play with the spacer thickness to get it to work.
Once it is working well again, then put the screws permanently back in.

New camera ,not working.


lol, ok...The memory card will only go in one way. But check the little white switch on the side of the memory card and make sure it is NOT in the locked position. Once this is taken care of reinstall the memory card. Now in you options/menu screen you can select on there where you want your pictures to be stored...Device / Memory / Auto. You can either put it on Memory or Auto (if you have this). In addition, you may need to format your new memory card. This is also in your menu screen to Format Memory Card. Go ahead and do this. But be forwarned...if you do this when you have pictures on your card, it will erase all of your pictures completely. If you do those things, everything should work fine. You don't need a full charge for your camera to work, but if you have rechargable batteries, it is recommended to fully charge your camera before use. If you are using standard AA batteries this isn't necessary. Oh, and when your memory card is in the camera you should see a little icon on your LCD screen that looks like a mini memory card. This is an indicator that the camera recognizes you have the memory card in the camera and along with that will be a counter...ie 4/1200. The first number is the amount of pictures taken on the card currently and the second number is the total possible pictures you can take on the card before it is full.

Diplay turning white on mju 700...


Hi

Sounds like your camera was dropped and the LCD was damaged. The white screen you see is typical for a defective LCD screen. The only way to repair the camera is to replace the bad part with a known good one.

One solution would be to buy a defective camera online that has a good LCD screen and swap them out.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

White Screen


  1. Upon startup lens emerges but when screen appears it is white whereas it normally displays whatever the lens sees. When the shutter button is pressed the camera will focus and take a white picture which can be deleted. The camera does not flash although flash is set to automatic and photo taken in a dark room. Camera flashes (weakly) with flash set to manual on. Lens is unobstructed and appears to be perfectly normal. Camera was not dropped. Batteries have been changed.

Samsung Digimax S500


Whit screen means A. connector has come adrift from the main board. or B. Component failure on the main board. If A. try to restore by gently tapping and squeezing the casing around the base of the screen this may get it back. Do get on to the Samsung Tech Support team - in case this is a known issue. An out of warranty repair is not a likely scenario however.
