That sound like you have a component failing inside. Basically what you are seeing is the part heating up and then stopping. It cools off a bit restarts and you get a few minutes and it heats up enough and off it goes. If you have any warrenty talk to the store you bought it from and see what the process is to get it fixed. If you don;t have warrenty this can be iffy if it is worth fixing or just replacing. The repair can easily cost more than a new one. You might want to check around as well as talking to acer and the store about repairs. Don;t just get it fixed just an estimate. Do a bit of shopping and see what a new one is worth. If the new one is cheaper just get it. The repairs can be long or short term fix. It might get t working for a while or for a long time but you don;t know so unless the repair cost is cheap don;t bother and expect to see a problem sooner or later.
I wonder if your autofocus is having problems. It may never get a distance number and is just sitting there waiting for it to figure out how far things are.
There is no other real difference when taking close or far just the focus. If you take the camera and set it to manual focus to try and take some distance shots. If that works then that is the problem.
As far as fixing it that depends on the value of the camera. Unless it is one of the higher end cameras the cost of repairs will be more than a new replacement camera. If you have warrenty this is covered. So check out your warrenty, check out the repair cost estimate, and check out what a new camera will cost. If you don't want to spend the money then your only option will be to learn how to do a manual focus for distance shots. It isn't hard just take a little practice. Unlike close photo's distance ones are not that picky for focus.
9 times out of 10 this is the backlight system going out. Either the backlight source (bulbs) or thier power supply. If you look at it when the computer is turned on you will see the desktop but very ghost like. You might have to get close and to one side to see it. If you are handy you can repair some monitors with a repair kit. The repairable ones have the backlight systems on seperate boards so you can just unplug the old one and put in the new one. Basically you can count on spending around $100 to repair it. So the first thing you need to do is check to see if you have any warrenty at all. If you don;t then you need to look at the replacement cost of a new monitor verse the repaired monitor cost. Usually the new monitor is as cheap and has the benefit of a new warrenty.
Two things. One is the lcd is out and needs replacement or hopefully you accidently turned it off or the batteries got too low and the camera turn it off to save power. I don't have the manual in front of me so you will probably find out how to turn it back on under the config menu.
The display going out is common but the repair cost is not cheap so if you don;t have warrenty make sure the repair cost isn;t going to be more than buying a new camera.
I just recently found out that you don't always need the warrenty slip, in order for you to still have the warrenty permissions on the device.
All you need to do is do go to the store where you baught the camera, tell them that you lost the warrenty slip. THey can look at the serial number on the camera and will be able to determine when and where you baught it.
It is eathe the bulb or the flash circuit. if you are going to fix it yourself watch out for the flash compasitor. If you are going to send it in watch the cost. It sould be fairly cheap to have fixed.
