Question about Canon Cameras

Open Question

I need to change the screen of my digital Camera Model PS-SD870IS Series Number: 5228215234. The problem is that there appeared a lot of gray spots that do not permit a complete view of the picture I want to take. Let me know the availability of this spare part, the price and the cost and time to get it sent to my home country, Santiago de Chile. I have been reading the complaints of people that have bought the same camera and although they found it a very good camera they have had the same problem as myself. May I please have an answer as soon as possible. Sincerely yours, Elena Eguiguren

SOURCE: digital camera problem

The suggestion that it would cost a thousand dollars to fix this problem is totally off the mark. Your camera's shutter has stuck open. Normally when you take a picture the shutter closes blocking out the light and allowing the image sensor to record what it saw at the moment the shutter closed. When the shutter sticks open the images come out over-exposed and have lines across them because the image sensor is unable to properly record the image. This problem can be fixed with complete disassembly of the camera and lens assembly. The labor costs in the range of $89 to $145 and parts are not usually required. Check with your manufacturer for recalls and/or warranty support. If they cannot help you for free, there are repair providers which you can find online who will work on your camera for reasonable rates. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Try removing the memory card and inserting it again.
Also, does the computer detect the camera properly?

SOURCE: screen reading memory card not initialized

It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Back spot on canon ixus 860 screen


Well, not sure if you got it resolved yet but the same thing happened to me. Brought it back and got it fixed under warranty. You'll most likely see more gray circles appear over time. They don't affect the picture but they are annoying.

Shutter won't open when turned on. Screen is gray & alarm sounds


It sounds as if when the camera was dropped it impacted the image processing chip inside of the camera thus why the LCD screen appears gray in color. You may want to call Olympus and discuss repair options. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3.

Gray spots on screen on a JVC HDILA model HD 56G 787


The HD-ila sets accumulate a lot of dust in the light engine. The worst offender is the little fold mirror just under the lens. I take my set apart about every 8 months or so to clean all the dust from the light tunnel and all lenses, mirrors, diffusers etc. The picture really regains it's pop when this is done. Unless you are a skilled technician though, I would recommend against attemptimg this procedure as you need to disconnect the individual color lcds. Check with a local service center to get it properly cleaned.

Spots on pics


I suggest you send it back to repair shop to clean ccd area. there are fine dusts in ccd screen area that camera need to be disassemble and removed and cleaned. I do not think the LCD is the problem. Some point and shoot models dust flowing through more than some others and if I am not mistaken, it seems this model has dust problem.

Spots on Rebel XT image


Dust is something that will need to be addressed. Get a Visual Dust brush and learn how to use it. You can help reduce dust by 1) changing lenses with the camera body facing down and 2) turning off your camera when changing lenses.
