Th e Viewfinder image flips upside down erratically. Meaning as I rotate the viewfinder it is suppose to flip upside down as it rotates towards the subject being shot. But lately it'; s started flipping when not in that position. Also it has flipped without even moving the viewfinder. Any fixes?

There is a switch in the LCD hinge mechanism that controls the image flip. It appears to be failing and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed 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.

My webcam on my Asus k501 is upside down. I use LifeFrame. How do I fix this problem?


If by upside down you mean that the image you see on the screen is inverted, then the settings of the webcam have been tampered with. When you launch your web cam, you would see the 'settings' option. Then select 'camera/image'. You would see the 'rotate' option. Rotate the image until it is erect. Also, if there is a 'flip' option, select flip vertically to make the image erect.

I hope that has fixed your problem?
Have a wonderful day.

When I attempt to use my USB2.0 UVC VGA WebCam, the image that pops up is upside down.


There should be a setting in the camera software, that sets the mirroring or rotation of the image. Play around with the mirror-flipping options or the rotation factor to get the image right. If it's filpped upside down, a Flip Vertical should do, or a 180 degrees rotation.

Hello, We have a Canon 9080C with the latest release of Capture Perfect 3. Previously we have not had a problem but now, randomly, some pages are upside down. It is supposed to recognise a page...


I dont think the scanner can scan upside down. The image must be rotated after the scan. Any OCR software has confusion between 'L' & '7', S & 5, I & l (capital I and small L) and the OCR software rotates the drawing, based on initial perception. Just scan a set of Documents that were previously rotated while converting to PDF, as a JPG or TIFF file and check if the images are rotated.

Viewfinder views things backwards


Yes, most finder scopes show upside down images, it's completely normal.

This is an astronomical telescope. Even the main tube shows upside down images unless you use what is called an "erecting prism" for terrestrial viewing.

Rotating the image.


Hi, I am not familiar with that model, But usually if you go into the settings menu you will see settings for the display which may be under "Display" "Rotate" "Keystone" "Flip" That model is made to be mounted upside down so somewhere in the menu there will be a setting similar to those I mentioned that will flip the image.

Hope that helps, Sorry I couldn't be more specific.

Image won't flip when the lcd panel is fliped to 180 degree i.e when i flip the lcd panel towards the lense to do a self shoot the image, instead of appearing stright appears upside - down


normally there is a micro switch fixed at the awivl head of the lcd panel. when the lcd is rotated to 180 the switch gets engaged thus turns the image upside down. most probably the switch has worn out.
