Hey sbrittannia,
This camera does not have what is called live preview where you can see what you're shooting and compose the image on the LCD screen. What it does have is image review which should display the image just taken on the LCD screen for about 2 seconds. If your camera is not doing this it means image review has been turned off. You can turn image review on or off under custom setting 6 which is described on page 88 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!

Wont stay on it will come on during boot but wont stay on


Failing main power capacitors probably, or other issues with the HT circuit. It could be frayed or perished insulation allowing the current to earth. Repairs are best left to a qualified technician, as there may be a safety risk if the insulation is damaged.

When I turn my monitor on, the screen shows the desktop momentarily and then goes black. If I turn it off and on a couple more times, the desktop will stay on and function normally. Where is the likely...


Try the monitor on another computer, to check-out the monitor.

Does the POWER lamp on the monitor stay on when the monitor goes black? If so, then the monitor probably is OK.

Try a different monitor, to trouble-shoot the video-card.

Nikon d50 monitor does not work during photo shooting, must use view finder


This is completely normal. The monitor is used for setting menu items, displaying shooting info, and reviewing images. Like SLR have functioned for over fifty years, you take pictures by composing and framing through the viewfinder. Only the most recent dSLRs have the Live View capability which allows you to use the monitor like a point&shoot camera.

It shuts off after 5 seconds


Is it connected to a computer?
If not, then it _should_ go to "power-save" mode,
and the lamp will go from GREEN to ORANGE.

If the lamp _totally_ goes off, then you have a problem with the HP monitor.

If it's still under warranty with HP, telephone HP, and get them to trouble-shoot and/or replace it.

The monitor only stays on for three seconds


I will assume that you already try this mnoitor with other PC and still get the same result, same with new VGA cable.
Then you will have to do some component level trouble shooting, common failure in these Dell monitors (made by BENQ) are due to poor solder joints and shorted out transistors (c5707/5706) in the inverter circuits. See pictures of failed Dell monitors for guide: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see, otherwise you can get the replacement board from http://lcdrepair.us/powersupply.html

Hannspree HF229H will not stay on


railbird56, Common problem for ALL BRANDS of "cold-cahtode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit lcd monitors! Here are your options!!! Cheapest to most costly!! 1. Warranty repair. 2 DIY repair???? 3. Local or distant repair. 4. possible old + cash swapout with Hannspree for refurbished same model?? 5. Trade-in for new wide screen. My best guess on your monitor (no history) is that the unit's SMPS is in partial or full shutdown mode during it's black screen moments. How much do you know about "electronic ballasts" "switch-mode-power-supplys" and how to repair them?? 12fixlouie
