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.

Sidebar gone, how do i get it back


Not sure if your problem is in Microsoft or in Apple so here are the steps for both systems:
Microsoft To fix this problem, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click All Programs.
  2. Click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and select Run as administrator.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. At the command prompt, type the following commands. Press ENTER after each command.Regsvr32 atl.dll
    Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sbdrop.dll
    Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\wlsrvc.dll
    exit
  4. Restart the computer.

Apple Couple of different approaches could potentially work:

Usually you will just click on the jellybean to get it back. Watch the Youtube video to see how easy this is. If this does not work, try one of the steps below.

1. Close all finder windows so when you click the finder icon it opens a new finder window, one with no sidebar. Then go View>Show Toolbar
Then once the toolbar is enabled, the view/hide sidebar toggle becomes activated in that same menu.

2. Close all finder windows so when you click the finder icon it opens a new finder window, one with no sidebar. Then go View>Show Toolbar
Then once the toolbar is enabled, the view/hide sidebar toggle becomes activated in that same menu.

3. Does it show only "FAVORITES" on the sidebar? Move your mouse a little to the right of it, until it says "Show" and press it.

4. If the sidebar is open and items are just missing, then moving the mouse just slightly to the right of the text will reveal a "Show" link.
However, if the sidebar is missing completely from the finder window, simply key option/command/s at the same time to reveal the sidebar. You can also simply hover over View > Show/Hide Sidebar.

5. Click on FINDER, then Preferences. Click on General tab near the top. Half way down "New Finder windows show" (Drop down menu) Click on it.
Choose your scenario. Should work after that.

6. It is possible somehow the Sidebar became hidden by pulling the center bar that separates the Sidebar from the right side viewing pane to the LEFT.
Make sure your Finder/View has Show Sidebar; then try placing your mouse to the far left and see if you get an "i" bar so you can drag it to the right which will make the Sidebar viewable again.

Off lens,view finder is not workink


The view finder is the little window on the top left of the camera. If you want to use the display as a view finder, you have to press the button with the camera logo. It is called the life view mode. you use the same button to switch off the display. Be aware using the display, will drain the batteries quicker. Somewhat faster then with modern cameras.
see page 19 of the manual.

This camcorder hasn't been used for many years but when I switch it on although it has power to it, the view finder just has a vertical white line down it. It's the same whether it's on 'camera' or...


Does it work at all with out the view finder? If it does work completely then you can use the camera without the view finder. Point and shoot and the more you use it the better you get at it. Good Luck

What is a Veiw Finder do I need it to work it just wondering thats thanks


The view finder is the small eyepiece you look through to see your subject that you are filming! If the camera has a seperate screen to watch your playback that can also be used as a view finder!

FD-95, F-stops & Strobes?


You might try adding an external view finder that is close to the FD-95 picture size. A lot of old cameras have them and it could also be used for sports as well, it could be added with Velcro or some other type of mounting. I am working on this problem myself. Good luck
