The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon connector between the LCD and the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I’m a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

DCS T70 LCD does work properly .I mean to say if i try to use one function another function gets started instead of desired function


Hi,

Based on the information you've provided, it seems that the touch screen panel is not aligned. You can try Calibrating the touch screen to resolve the issue.
Calibration option is in the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera. Calibration option enables you to perform calibration when the touch panel buttons do not react at the appropriate points where you touch. You can use the paint pen, touch the X mark displayed on the screen. The X mark moves on the screen. Once the calibration option is finished successfully, the touch screen should work.
The Calibration option can be done only if the Menu is accessible.
You can also perform a power reset before performing the Calibration.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.
This should resolve the issue.


Thanks for using Fixya.

The touch buttons on the LCD-display do not work,


This often happend, the touch pads behind the LCD harden after a time, heat from hot rooms or sun make the pads hard, the same happens to touch screen on phones too, sadly a newish idea, but not a good one I find.
You need to clean gentry the LCD with clean damp cloth, no detergents, nothing just damo cloth, I mean damp not a bucket load okay, and things will be ok.

Chances are that like most touchpad screens it has to be "calibrated" similar to calibrating Palm Pilot screens.

Finding this procedure may be a problem, however it is likely in one of the setup screens. You MAY have to re-initialize the whole thing.

Touchscreen wont work and can't get the calibration screen to appear as described in the manual. It keeps showing the initial date setup screen.


This fault is often caused by a failing flat cable that connects the LCD panel and the rest of the camera. In its early stages it is possible to get the buttons on the touch panel to work by carefuly changing the angle of the LCD panel while trying out the buttons until you get a position where they work.
When the flat cable gets worse , the picture on the LCD panel will start deteriorating and go off altogether.
At this stage you may consider having the flat cable replaced.

The touch screen is not working. After resetting


If the buttons on the touch-panel LCD screen do not respond correctly or do not work at all, adjust the LCD screen calibration. Consult the instruction manual if specific information is required to perform this procedure.
NOTE: The touch-panel LCD screen cannot be calibrated if it is rotated.

Touch panel menu unaccessible


Me too! The camera was working perfectly until yesterday and when I turned it on today, it selectively ignores some buttons on the screen - and pressing the "Menu" gives me nothing. I've tried to reset it through that pin hole button, but it just resets the machine back to its default.
