Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I own a 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. I have been reading that this problem has happened to other people. I do not know if a replacement of the LCD screen will be the solution as I was told by the Customer Service in Chile, where I live

    Unfortunately I bought my camera in March, 2008, so I cannot send it back.

    All my pictures look perfect. The gray spot appears only on the screen, but is very anoying because I cannot see is the picture taken is OK

    My pictures are OK

  • eeguigur Oct 12, 2010

    My answer to your question if the pictures I download to my computer look ok and don't have the "gray" issue I am talking about is: THEY LOOK PERFECT once downloaded, but I need to see them through the screen of my camera while I take them.

    Can you please answer my question? Is it possible that even if replacing the LCD panel this problem will persist? Where is the source of the problem?

    I need your answer as soon as possible in order to make a decision wether to fix my camera, which I love, or buy a new one.

    Thank you very much

    Thanks for your answers, but you have not told me if in your experience and knowledge, is it still possible that even if replacing the LCD panel the problem will persist?

    Where do you think is the source of the problem?

How long have you owned the camera? If it is less then 12 months then I recommend sending it in under manufacturer warranty. They will need to repair/replace it under warranty. Here is the link:

My canon power shot sd870is digital camera suddenly will not allow me to download pictures

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

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.
