Re: largan eaxy 200 cam
You would need to take the camera to a Camera Repair shop, but I don't think it would be cost effective to have someone repair it. Most repair places are going to be $75 for a diagnostic fee, plus whatever parts need to be replaced. With the camera being around $75 when I just looked, you would be able to upgrade to a newer camera for about that amount of money - and get a brand new warranty. If you have it repaired, you might get a 30 day or 90 day warranty - but that would be it. A new camera would get you at least 1 yr warranty, and maybe longer.

When you transfer this pics at pc... they are purple too? Could be a problem with the LCD screen viewer or CCD Image sensor
go to bad. In both cases 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.

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.
With the camera on, push the mode button 5 times. The window will show a square with a dark circle in it, and a diagonal line through. Hold the shutter button (that you take a picture with) down until the camera "beeps". This will erase all the pics in the camera. To erase the last pic taken, push the mode button 4 times. This gives you a square with a lighter circle and diagonal line - hold the shutter button until it beeps.
With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.
