Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

When I turn my camera on the display screen is darkened. I can hardly see what I am taking a picture of. I can barely see the pictures saved and I cannot see the menu options to see if there is anything I can do to change the settings. What can I do? Is this fixable? I own the Sony Cybershot DSC-W55.

Dear Member!
The screen back-light or inverter has gone,usually this is a guarantee issue,so if you take this to one of the services they has to repair for free. You can open an check the screen cable connections,if they are OK ,or try resolder if necessary,but most likely is the inverter which is not user repairable,so must to be taken to the service.If there is no sign of impact or other damage and the camera is in warranty they has to repair it for free. Good luck! Regards!

LCD Screen


Your camera is working exactly as SLRs have worked for the first half-century since their invention. You frame the picture through the viewfinder then take the shot. The display is for menu settings and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. Newer DSLRs will let you use the display for picture-taking (and take videos) but the A200 belongs to the previous generation.

If you are using too much the flash+zoom, the batteries quicly will drain. maintian another set of batteries for replace, or better buy recharges batteries.

Why is my picture darker than normal


It may be the backlighting has been readjusted by someone other yourself. Whenever you go on battery, I'm sure you've seen the screen darken a bit. This is the backlighting being turned down to save battery life. There is usually a blue function "fn" key that allows the user to brighten or darken the display. Look at the blue icons in the F1-F12 keys. The one to brighten the display looks light a sun and the one to darken the display looks a full moon eclipsed. Press and hold the fn key and tap the desired function key to brighten or darken the display.

Screen went black


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Black screen while shooting, but still taking pictures not black


Nonononooooo fotomohamed, he can review just taken pictures on the LCD. The screen is working.

Actually, it sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save batteries (you would then use optical viewfinder). Just press it once and it should turn back on.

My camera displays a "white screen" when i take photos "outdoors" or during daytime outside


Are you sure that you are in full "auto" mode when you are taking your pictures? Make sure that the mode selector is set to the first red camera (without the M) right next to the little blue arrow.

If you already are in full auto, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

Your camera is not capable of taking 15 second exposures. Instead try putting it in manual mode, turn off the flash, take it in a darkened room, take the picture, and open the battery door while the red and yellow lights are blinking. Give it several tries, but note that the chances may be very slim for success as the shutter symptoms suggest that it is stuck open.

Canon A700 black screen when i want to take a picture


Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? This button manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. Pictures will still appear momentarily when shot.

No picture on lcd screen only when taking pictures


Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on back (it turns the screen off to save batteries). If so, press this button again to turn your LCD screen back on.
