Question about Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The screen of my camera is scrambled lookinig.

The screen of my camera comes on, but when it does it just a bunch of colors and lines on the right hand side. Nothing will make it change. I changed the batteries and that didn't help either.

Toshiba Satellite A350D - 003 laptop. Turned it on sounded like it booted right, but the screen is all scramble and looks like colored lines


The LCD screen may be bad, there is a video cable cord from the motherboard to the screen "may have come loose" But first hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of the laptop to see if clears up, if yes! then it is the laptop issue, if no! both LCD screens show the same problem, it is The Video Graphics Card that is part of the motherboard.

54inch Hitachi TV has double figures and colors red, yellow-not normal. Set approximately seven -eight years old. Lost remote control and direction book in moving. Is the set worth getting fixed? Generally...


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix here

LINES ON SCREEN.


Hi

there are very few troubleshooting you can do with the monitor

1.) Powerflee: unplug both the cables of the monitor from the computer and power socket. then press and hold the on button for 15 seconds this will release all the static current..

if this does not work then doa Monitor on self test.. just conect the power cable of the monitor and make sure the VGA (Blue plug) is Not pluged in with the computer. switch on the monitor and you will get a message either a question mak or No Vga cable see the color if itn ios not coming right then the monitor has gone bad

thanks

P42W46X Zenith Plasma - No Picture - Mostly Yellow on screen


Mine looks like too, but the line running across isn't on my set, picture looks like this, and the sound works fine. I took the tuner board all the way out and turned the set on and it did the same thing, then I unplugged the top wire on the board next to the tuner board and the screen went black. plugged it back in and the screen came back with the scrambled picture. Anyone know why? Bad mainboard maybe? the left of the tuner board?
