    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.

  • LargoLad Dec 10, 2008

    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.

When i open some uploaded picture ,black background will show

This is the new way that Facebook displays images. When you click an image, a black pop-up will appear with the image and the details about that image. You can exit out of this box by clicking the "X" in the upper right corner of the black box.

Has a blue dialog box that says out of range


It sounds like you have two separate problems.

The first one is the "out of range" issue. This means you are trying to display a screen resolution that is too high or too low and your monitor cannot display any image. Reboot your computer with another monitor or into safe boot mode and change the resolution to an industry standard (800x600 / 1024x786) and then see if your monitor will display the image. Once you can see the image on your monitor, you can make adjustments and it will automatically revert back if you cannot see the new display settings.

Update your video graphics card drivers to get the best possible resolution.

As for the buttons on the front of the monitor not working, this may be caused by the "out of range" issue above. It could also indicate that your monitor may be going bad. Try the above steps - if you get no image from the monitor, try moving the monitor to another known good computer and see if the button functionality works after it displays an image.

Tv screen setting narrows on certain programmes, how does one widen it again

If you're on cable, there is a set up menu on the cable box that specifies what format the image displays. Basically here's what's going on. Some shows are broadcast in HD and some aren't the non HD broadcasts will display with a boarder on the right and left side of the screen, Some broacasts say they're HD but they still broadcast in what is called "letter box" which means the square TV type image. the way around this is there probably is an option either in the cable box to force 16 x 9 display, or there should be a format button on the remote that changes the image format to "wide" or "stretch". That's what you're looking for. Hope that helps.

Shows Dark

Many factors can affect the image quality of your pictures. If you are experiencing blurry images, please try adjusting the focus ring located around the lens. This will allow you to focus the camera image on objects at different distances. Also, make sure there is good lighting. Improving the lighting conditions can improve the image quality considerably.
Connection Issues:
If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video. Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed. Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds. If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.
Changing Display Adapter Settings:
If you are still experiencing a distorted, fuzzy or grainy image, you may need to change the settings for your display adapter. For optimal image quality, please make sure the video display adapter is set to display at least 16-bit high color or higher. To change the color palette please perform the following steps:
  1. Click on "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."
  2. Double-click on the Display icon.
  3. Click on the tab labeled Settings.
  4. In the dialog box labeled Color Palette, verify the video mode is set to 16-bit (high color) or 24-bit (true color).
  5. Also, check with the manufacturer of the video card for updated video drivers.
Low Light Boost:
If you cannot do anything to improve the lighting situation, some Logitech video cameras have an option for "Low Light Boost." If there is an option for "Low Light Boost," try enabling the "Low Light Boost" in the QuickCam software. To do this:
  1. Open the QuickCam software.
  2. At the bottom right hand corner of the camera image box, click on the arrow next to the QuickCam icon.
  3. Choose "Advanced Camera Settings".
  4. Under the Image Enhancement box, place a check mark in the "Low Light Boost" option.
  5. If that does not improve the image quality, try adjusting the other image settings, such as contrast, saturation brightness, gain and white balance.
  6. Click OK when your are done.
