Display not showing correctly

When I turn my camera on to take a picture the display in either the screen or the wiewer shows lines and out of focus and it's in a purple, black, and white color. It still shows the previous pictures fine but I can't take any new ones. Any ideas what is wrong and where to get it fixed camera hasn't been used hardly at all.

    Camera will no longer focus… images are stretched and oblique, purple and white.

    My camera is about 5 years old. Same thing happened to me, a few shots were good and then they went to purple, black & white too. After a few shots of those psychodelic shots my LCD only displays dynamic horitzontal lines. I read a few problems back about the ccd sensor...I wonder if this is related> I was using my camera outside on a hot day.

    I turned on the camera one day and got purple and white horizontal lines. What I did notice that if you zoom in and out a few times, you may get the image to display properly.

    Like others, when I turn the camera on, I am not guaranteed that the viewfinder or sceen will show a normal picure. Sometimes get purple, blue or other color psycodelic screen and no clue what I am pointing at. Will sometimes take a couple of pictures, and then go into this acid trip. Then cannot get it to go normal again. Have checked all the buttons and settings for hints to troubleshoot, but cannot resolve this problem to make it return to a dependable camera. Help !!! I love this camera, what is wrong ?

I had the problem, got the CCD changed it worked for a few months then it stopped working once again. My advice, though its a great camera its time to retire it. Problem is I just love the ability to add on filters which is not common in most prosumer cameras

Kodak MX1063 - Screen Out Of Focus


Hi,

First verify that you didn't just accidentally turn off the LCD. To check, turn the camera on and press the "DISPLAY" or "DISP" button once. One other thing to check is that faded pictures can sometimes be caused by a stuck shutter. Potential symptoms may also include purple scratchy lines showing up on the LCD monitor and the camera's pictures. Other reported symptoms may be extremely distorted images (one reader likened them to the movie "Grudge"). Or blank or black pictures or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card. You may suspect that the camera's shutter is not opening, but this is not the case. Note that the camera's menu functions should show up without any problem. Please note that your camera must be experiencing these symptoms due to a faulty CCD, and not due to other problems. Note that they're going to look for dings and dents. This is a CCD failure and in some cases had been subject to a recall. Contact Kodak support-this may be one of the recalls and replacement camera could be on its way. They will do it for free of cost.

Thank you!!

When I turn on the camera the LCD screen no longer shows the settings. I can still take pictures and it shows the image on the LCD screen, and if I hit menu screen shows. Did I push something I wasn't...


That is just a setting. It turns off the lcd to save battery or when you want to just use the optics for sightiing/focus etc. Should be one of the menus that show up when you hit the menu button. You should be able to set it off as it is now or have it display for a few seoncds then off and on all the time.

SD550 camera not focusing correctly. Green focus square sometimes shows up, sometimes not, either way, it's not clear even on the digital screen prior to taking the shot. Camera does make a slight click...


to make the green square show up just press the shutter button until half (this is called the half press) when the green square shows up then it means that the camera has focused already, if not repeat the process til green square comes out you can press the shutter button fully to take picture when you see the green square...

You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

MikeNJ1964 was exactly right! I have a Sony KP-65WV600 that had horizontal green lines that showed when the picture was darker. I had to remove 3 screws on the right and left side of the tv holding in the speakers...carefully pop out the middle panel from the clips holding it in....remove 4 screws from the cardboard in the middle and remove the cardboard. I then saw the six screws. The adjustment screws were the three below. I turned the middle screw until the lines dissapeared. I tried the left screw and blue lines appeared which I then adjusted away.
THANKS a bunch. SAVED me money!!!

Digitil camera out of focus


The motor that controls the focus of the lense may be bad. Here is a link to the manual, and you many need to have the camera serviced at a local shop or by Vivatar.
Go here to download the manual for future reference:
