    I hardly used the camera, and put it on charger all the time since Jan 06.When I turn on the camera now, the bright white display is the only thing I see on the whole screen. It shows only white display when I try to press any button.

    In my Camera, the display lasts hardly for 5 to 6 seconds and starts flickering and then goes off.

    Please help

    white screen only in image box

  • kwstrings Oct 31, 2008

    For a few minutes the display screen is totally normal and I can take photos. Then the screen goes black with horizontal lines flickering thru it. If I hit display the icons do show. Seems like if it's off for awhile it's ok for a short time but then looses the screen again. Love this camera and hate the thought of replacing it! Can it be fixed?

    My image screen only shows after I take a picture and then it disappears. I will never buy another cannon product ever again. Sony is the way to go.

    I cannot see the picture (during & after) shooting. All other info like batterly charge indicator, menu, etc. are displayed properly.

    When I turn my Sureshot S51S on the screen is black with the various icons. Tried all kind of stuff but I still can't take a picture!
    I'm no Einstein, but no dummy either! Maybe some setting needs adjustment. It takes great pictures! I only hope it's not defective.
    Hope somebody can help. I need it for my job. Thanx. Tony

    No image in display box.

    All the icons are viewable, just not the picture. My digicam is barely new.

  • GrannyBabs Apr 19, 2009

    I just started having the exact same problem. I have no idea what happened, I have had my camera for a few years and haven't had a problem up until now. I can't believe that there has not been a solution listed for this yet. Someone has to know SOMETHING!! I do but not about this particular problem. :)

  • franz62 Apr 26, 2009

    Hello, i have this same problem:

    the display lights up but stays gray with vertical stripes of black and various shades of gray,
    the icon is not visible, but the camera also takes pictures, the problem is that you can not put any up of menus

Shine a very bright (Preferably an ultra bright LCD flashlight) directly into the lens for a few moments with the camera on. Try it, it worked for me.

My nikon d60 is starting to take forever to show the picture after taking the photo, and now all the sudden is shows a black box with shooting details on it, i can't get that off!

In your manual you will find how to change the display format (picture only, histogram, etc.). The time it's taking to display your image "might" be that your memory card is getting quite full and you're shooting large images. I shoot a D80 and it uses an SD card. Make sure you but a fast memory card if your camera does not buffer the inage before writing it to your memory card.

Olympus FE-220 how to display the time and date on the picture permantly

By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

Problem with image

What mode is the camera in? is it in "Auto" at the top there is a dial switch it to auto and press button halfway (shutter button) when you press the button halfway the camera will beep and display a square box on the LCD. If the camera beeps once and the box is orange it could not focus and you need to retry pressing halfway again. When it is in focus it will beep 2 times and it will show a GREEN box. This is the indication it could focus on the subject correctly. Its a machine and sometimes it takes it a bit for it to figure out what your wanting it to do. Its the nature of the unit

Focus problems

There are settings in the menu to turn on the AIAF did you buy it used? maybe the settings need to be reset. If you have the manual there is a sequence you have to do to reset the camera to default settings. One thing to note this may or maynot be yoru problem. If the lighting is low and you have the correct settings the little box in the center will turn green. If they are not the box will turn yellow and beep a few times then give you a red number to indicate how much under exposed the image will be. When you need more light you should turn the flash on this is indicated by a lightning bolt on the display. If it is on then the image display will be corrected and then get brighter showing you an estimate of what it thinks the image will look like. Hope this helps

Problem Emailing from Nikon View with Microsoft Outlook

In some cases Microsoft Outlook has problems handling attached image files and will display a blank dialog box with a red "X" in it. In order to fix this choose "Detect and Repair" from the Microsoft Outlook "Help" menu. After performing this operation Nikon View will be able to attach image files and the "E-mail" button will work as expected.
