White Screen. When I turn my camera on, it has power but, the display is white and you cannot see anything through the view finder.


hi,
did you check the picture through the view finder ? if it is clear, then there may be snag in the monitor, normally the connecting cable to the motherboard become break, if so should replace it.
if the picture is visible when you turn the monitor to either side, then you can confirm the fault of the cable.

Why i pictures in view finder always turn pink. Like a mouse pad is black on my desk when I take a picture of it, it comes out pink. My camera is a panasonic D


This would happen if the color balance was on the wrong setting. Check your user manual by looking for either color balance or white balance. You will want to return the setting to "automatic" or whatever the default is called. On many cameras it is easy to accidentally change this setting. It is used to reduce the yellow look of tungsten bulbs, the green of fluorescent, or the bluish tint of shadows.

White line on viewing screen


If the line is also on your photos it is a bad censor assembly, if the line is just on the LCD than the LCD is faulty. Either way you are looking at a trip to the repair shop.

Fuji S5000 magenta, green and white swirls on view finder


Sound like a malfunctioning CCD-image sensor. Rare, but possible problem with your LCD screenviewer... in both cases (LCD or CCD) this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Samsung service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Hi
I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

FinePix F470 Lines on images and faded colors on photo mode.


You have over exposed pictures due to the shutter sticking.
The video is the clue to the problem. It doesn't use the shutter.
Shutter needs to be cleaned. This is no easy task im afraid

Water Damage to View Finder


Hello,
Try cleaning the viewfinder with a damp (again?) soft cloth. You can use a product recommended for cleaning camera lenses. You can still use the screen to view the scene you want to shoot. (I am assuming that what you call the viewfinder is the small eye that used to equip all cameras, before it was replaced by the view screen.)

Hope it helps.
