Hi,

If you cannot see them on replay nor any live view, this is clearly suggestive of bad LCD panel. The only solution would be to replace LCD panel. If the set is under warranty, you could send it for repair or replacement.

However,if the set is out of warranty, then most of the times it is worth to buy a new camera rather than getting it repaired as the cost of the repair would be quite high as compared to the cost of the product.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a Sony A300. When I turn on the live view screen, I only see a bunch of vertical lines on the screen and cannot see anything that I try to display (ie. menu, display, prior photo's, or the...


Sorry to say your LCD screen is cracked, it happens a lot with the Sony DSLR-A300 and A350. The solution is to remove the cracked LCD and replace it with a new one. The repair isn't that difficult, but you have to be careful removing the LCD or you will break a latch holds two FPC cables together and then will have to replace yet another part that takes MUCH more labor.

I did a Google search for "sony a300 lcd repair" and at #2 I saw an online digital camera repair shop that has done tons of this repair over the last few years.

Hope this helps!

I am not able to take a snapshot through liveview of Nikkon D90? Tried all possible combinations but in vain. Any solution?


I don't know what you have tried but, the Live View button is just to the right of the LCD screen and just above the "OK" button. Pushing this button takes you into live view, it's not instant because of some of the internal functions the camera needs to do before displaying on the screen. Might take a second or two. By pressing the button again takes you back to "normal" viewfinder.

Setting auto focus mode for the Live View is accomplished in Custom Settings Menu a 7 I think.

Oh, don't forget to take the lens cap off cause all you'll see is a black screen

The Monitor screen doesn't work when I want to take a photo, I can only see picture through eye piece.


If your screen works in playback mode, the screen and flexible circuit boards are intact. To shoot an image using the LCD screen you must first activate the "live view" function in the setup menu, and then press the live view (Lv) button to view your image on the LCD.

Black-n-purple viewing screen my fuji s700 (s7000) camera


Sounds like a bad LCD as I had a similar experience with a different brand. The part itself is probably not very cheap... but if you have $120 you could get the same camera, referbished.

New EOS XSi LCD don't work


You have to set the camera to "Live View" mode. Check your manual for settings.
BTW, it's usually a bad idea to use Live View mode unless the camera is on a tripod. With Live View you have to hold the camera out in front of you and it's much less steady.

LCD on - view image prior to taking photo


The feature you are referring to is called "Live View mode".

This is NOT available on the Nikon D80, and was only introduced on the D90, which is available now.

Live View mode allows you to use the LCD screen as your view finder instead of using the eyepiece, but unfortunately, this feature is not available in your model.

New Camera, no picture on screen


This is normal for this camera. Think about it. The CMOS chip can't see through the mirror. After the shot is taken the electronic shutter exposes the CMOS chip and makes an image just like exposing film on a film type camera. Once you get used to it you may like it better. In outdoor or bright light situations it's difficult to view the LCD screen to frame the shot anyway.

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...


The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function
