    It doesn't show anything, just won't come on. It went white first right after he messed with it and now it won't come on at all, (the screen I mean!)

Try pushing the DISP button at the bottom on back. If that doesn't change it, it's probably a hardware problem. If there's no live display, but you can view recorded pics, the shutter blades could be stuck together, which happens when the camera's been stored in a hot area - it has to be sent in for repair.

I had this problem about my touch screen same with you. The touch screen on left hand has stopped working. I had it for 20 months. I live in Thailand. I think that it is the big problem for ST550. I've brought it to Samsung Customer Center. and they've introduced me to change the new touch screen. It is about USD50.00. I am bored. I used it a little bit.

Our Canon EOS Rebel XSi no longer works on auto focus. The flash works but the camera just makes clicking noises and the screen says "busy". Any suggestions? The camera works fine in manual...


Optical focus relies on a gear driven motorized system to focus the lens. It sounds like the drive is either frozen by a foreign object (it doesn't take much) has gotten into the system, or a tooth has worn/broken on the gearing.

Try taking the lens off and blowing the camera out with some canned air. If that doesn't do it, it's a trip to the repair center.

LCD Screen doesn't work when it is clicked in (screen facing up) it only shows up on the eyehole. I tried hitting the Display button so many times yet it doesn't work.


A Camera Labs review of this camera, November 2008, states, "If the screen is folded back on itself, the DISP button only switches between the two EVF modes." (EVF = Electronic View Finder.) i.e. it is not affecting the screen at all.
On my Canon 60D with a similar folding screen the same appears to be the case but, if I fold back the screen while it is functioning it works OK.
Also, I noticed that pressing several other buttons on the back of the camera effects changes to the screen. Might be worth trying these on your camera.

The menu screen is on and we can not take pictures, we can not get out of that setting


Hi, If it won't let you quit out of the menu screen I'd suggest turning the camera off then on, if that doesn't work take the battery out for a couple of minute and that should do the trick.

Touch screen on cyber shot is only partially working. Only some of the touchscreen buttons are functioning.


the touch sensitivity of the screen must have some problem, if your camera is under warranty then u can probably get it fixed by the company, but if not then u need to replace the screen which will be the same suggestion as the service center guys. so if u want to do it yourself (which is a lot cheap & easy if u are good with delicate electronics), then hit me back. i will help u with the screen replacement

Suggest you take it to the Olympus service centre. Mine had water going in as well, but because it was under warranty, they managed to help me fix the unit.

I just turne on my camera and the screen is black


Try and reset the camera: Take out the battery for longer than 10 sec. And reinsert. If this doesn?t work I believe you should go back to the shop in order to exchange the camera. Good Luck

Turns out my husband must have pressed a button by accident. The bottom left button says "disp" for display. Pressing that fixed the screen!
