Question about Canon T70 35mm SLR Camera

LCD goes blank whether camera is on or off

I just got my T70 serviced last month but for some reason I'm having problems with the LCD and battery.

The LCD goes blank whether it's on or off, not showing nothing not even the shots left or whatnot. The battery contacts aren't corroded and the problem persists even when the batteries are new.

I've taken them out and put them back in a couple of times. Once in a while the LCD turns on again but blanks out soon after. What is wrong and has this anything to do with the back-up battery?

    Hi Allan,



    Thanks for the quick response! Relived to know that help is indeed out there. I do like the free part as servicing wasn't cheap the first time around and I suspect it's the root of the problem.



    But no, it's not a problem of the LCD connection to the camera. The entire camera flicks off with the LCD so I can't even take a picture or get any response from the camera. The LCD is just the clearest and easiest indicator of the camera problem as it should be on even when the camera is turned off.

Hey sirath,
I know you just got the camera serviced, but from how you describe the issue I would say there is a problem with the connection of the LCD to the camera (i.e. a loose wire). I am assuming that the camera will still take a picture, but you just can't see anything on the LCD screen. If this is the case I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician, and I would bring it back to whomever worked on the camera before because it is possible that the previous repair caused the problem and if that is the case this repair would most likely be free. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

N95 slider problem . LCD goes blank on sliding . it appears that there is problem in Strip. do u get separate strip or it comes alongwith slider....


No the Slider strip doesn't come separately because the strip is merged permanently to a circuit that has your earpiece ,light sensor,and front camera you cannot seperate it in any manner because the only unlockable part over there is the LCD screen .i would recommend you to get your phone serviced from nokia care only because the strip is the most important part in a slider .. even if you get a local strip installed from a local mobile repair center it wont last for a month ..even i had the same problem 4 months back ..because quality of the strip matters .......

Sony DSC-T70 still takes pictures but screen off


Since you've already swapped the screen, it looks like there is an issue with your logic board. However many times ebay vendors send you a screen that will fit but is incompatible, so I wouldn't exclude that possibility. I work for Sony Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

My cybershott70 won't turn on


Dear Sir,

The problem could be with your camera to battery connections. The
The secret to making digital cameras work better is having good electrical contacts between the batteries and the camera.

Digital cameras require lots of power. If electrical contacts are not really good, this can cause lots of problems so battery and camera contacts must be cleaned properly. Batteries may be fully charged, but will be viewed as low if contacts are not really good. The LCD display is a low steady load, but when lens extension, optical zoom, focus, and flash charging are added in the capture mode; the load is very heavy. With bad contacts, cameras do strange things like making bad pictures or shutting off with the lens out.

Vertical color lines on display screen


Hi!
If the lines appear while looking at the menu, then it's a broken LCD. If the lines appear only while taking pictures - faulty CCD. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

Samsung s860 digital camera turns on and then goes to blank screen and will do nothing else, to turn off it requires battery removal. same story with new batteries.


Dear customer

thanks for ur inquiry for ur product

If the LCD screen is blank or black when you have your camera in the Camera or Play mode, the camera may need service. To determine if this is the case, follow these steps:

1. Press the Menu button to see if the LCD screen can display the OSD (On Screen Display). 2. Set your camera to Play mode, and then see if the LCD screen displays a picture. 3. To eliminate the possibility of a user setting causing the problem, put the unit into Auto mode by rotating the dial on the units exterior to Auto Mode. Note: The word "Auto" appears on the screen when this mode is activated. 4. If putting the camera into Auto mode does not resolve the problem, test the unit in Play mode. If the unit operates normally in Play mode, but the screen in Camera mode is blank, your camera requires service which you can arrange by Creating a Service Ticket below. Note: Because your camera has an automatic LCD display shutdown feature, its normal for the LCD to stop displaying when the camera has been on for along period of time. This feature prolongs battery life.
