The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Just got a Meade ETX 90 and cannot see anything thru the eyepiece. I've tried the focus screw, lens covers are off, and flip switch is in correct position. Anyone know the answer?


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the TOP of the scope eyepiece holder.

Practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime. It may take several turns of the focuser know.

Also check the TINY setscrew on the side of the focuser knob. It may be loose and need tightening so it will GRIP the focuser shaft.

Leupold Windriver Cascade 10x42 eyepiece jammed


Sounds like one of the eyepiece screws underneath the eyecup has come loose. The rotating eyecup is threaded underneath so it can rotate into up or down position on the eyepiece. If this is the case your Cascades are under warranty and it sounds like you should send them to Leupold to examine them. They are a very reputable company and I doubt they would put it down to user misuse if that isn't the case. Bear in mind that if you have been using them in the field and have had muck on them a small foreign object may have worked its way into the eyecup thread.

My flip video camera froze.it wont turn on....


Have you tried resetting the camera? Hold down the power button and the red button simultaneously until the camera shuts off (takes about 10 seconds). Then, just press the power button again and the camera should turn back on. I had the same problem; when I pressed the red button to stop recording, the camera froze, and the red light remained on. I tried resetting it like this, and it seemed to work.

What is a Veiw Finder


It's where you find a view of what the light coming through the lens. Today's consumer camcorders place the viewfinder center-rear usually with a rubbery piece around the end as an eyepiece/cup. Many units shut off the image to the eyepiece if the flip-out LCD screen on the side is used.

Etx cant focus


The LPI camera will HIGHLY magnify the image-- about like a 6mm -8mm eyepiece-- tiny adjustments are needed to focus. You can buy a .5 or .3 focal reducer which will widen the field of view and make it easier to focus--

On my LX90 --- it takes about 20 TURNS of the focus knob to go between the eyepiece view and the camera view!

How to reset dvd recorder to ntsc from pal


After checking today to see no one offered any suggestions - I solved the problem the hard way - I went into settings and although the screen rolled, I was finally able to click onto the ntsc setting after about a half hour of tries and once I clicked it, my screen returned to normal -- i was then able to enter the code that made the player an all region player and was happily able to play a pal dvd I received recently. The procedure was simple -- offered by a European Cyberhome user -- the company is in bankruptcy so you cannot gt help from them. Note - my Cyberhome dvr is 1500- not 1600 as you listed it.

Very unclear picture when in camera mode


This problem has been answered and solved. It's a defect which Sony will fix. Go to their web site and service /support should explain what the problem looks like and that (if your problem really is the same) they will fix it free including shipping. I've done it already on my CCD-TRV318.
