Protax DC500T Digital Camera lens won't open

Hi, I was taking pictures with the above camera I have recently bought. It took about 16 then the LCD screen went blank and I when I took a photo the image came up black. The lens is closed. I tried turning the camera on and off, the camera worked but the LCD screen was still black, only when in still image mode. I looked through the user manual and cannot find anything to fix this problem. Can you help me to fix it or does it need repairing? Thanks

Try connecting camera to computer.
Open My Computer and see if camera shows
If camera does not show then computer is not recognizing the connection, try different port o different cord, or different computer.

If camera icon shows, then right click on icon and select Open.
Navigate to images.
Drag and drop images into a folder.

While icon is still active.
Right click icon, select properties, or select 'open-with', and rummage around to see if there are options telling XP what to do when camera is connected.

Pictures appear with vertical or horizontal lines, very white


In my opinion, it is just matter of 2 ribbon wires that are not plugged properly at lens section, coming from main board (LCD section) because to fix / tight a loosed Hinge screws, above said 2 ribbon wires (flexible boards) need to be remove on lens side.

It means the camera is using a slow shutter speed and may blur.

You might have the camera set to an inappropriate 'scene' mode. If you are using 'landscape' or 'snow' for an indoor or night shot for example, the camera will select a slow shutter speed which will increase the chance of blur - hence the warning.

If you keep the selector switch all the way to the left (auto mode) you should be fine in most situations. Only use the 'scene' modes for specific purposes.

Try replacing the SD card first..sometimes that can be a culprit.
If that does not resolve the issue, try tapping a corner of the camera on the palm of your hand a couple of times. (I hear swearing while doing this helps..LOL)
If neither of them works, then yu either have a faulty CCD sensor, or faulty connector ribbons to the LCD display. Since you said you just got the camera a week ago, if the first two solutions don't work, then you best get the camera replaced under warranty.

Hope that helps! Oh yes, please do not forget to assign a fixya rating as a show of appreciation for my help. Rating here are everything, you know :)

Cheers and good luck!
