No Main Screen

I have lost the main screen menu when I turn on my camera. Once I take a picture I can see it, but for the settings screen(scene mode or main menu) it does not come on. Can you help?

Thanks
Ian

My camera shoots too bright images when shooting outdoors. Photos taken indoors appear to have horizontal lines but are much clearer than those taken outdoors. Is the shutter stuck or is it a ccd prob


With the main dial on top of the camera, set it on Auto(magic). When it is in a scene mode, it can't adjust to the right settings.
Use the menu button.
When it is set to Auto and you get the same result, I'm afraid there is another problem. But if the pictures are better, only use a mode you understand. (To start with scene and chose a mode you need)

My polaroid iS2132 won't change settings when I turn the mode dial/Can't set the intelligent scene mode.


When you put the Mode dail to the SCN mode, It will enter the last used Scene mode. THEN press the MENU button to select other scene mode.
Don't turn any dail. Use the navigation controls left and right from the OK button, to move through the section. Press OK button to save and activate the selected scene mode.

Where is the reset button a gravity3


Instructions
    • 1

      Unlock your cell phone (if necessary). From the main screen select "Menu"; this option should be located on the lower left-hand side of the screen. Scroll to and select "Phone Book." The screen will show different phone book menu options. Select "Management" by either scrolling down to it or punching the #6 button from your keypad. Finally, select "Copy all to" and select SIM card. This saves all of your phone numbers to your SIM card, ensuring that they will not be lost when the factory settings are restored to your cell phone.

      Move any pictures, videos, sounds, ring tones and other data that you would like to save to your memory card. For this example we will transfer pictures, but the steps for other items will be the same, with the exception of selecting "camera."

      Starting from the home screen, select "Menu" and then "Fun & Apps." Using either the keypad or scrolling function, select "Camera" or #4. The camera menu offers five options; choose #3 or "Photos." Next you will see thumbnails of all of the pictures saved on your cell phone. You can now choose to either send your pictures to your online album or move them to your memory card. If you choose to move them to your memory card, continue with the next steps.

      After selecting "Move to memory card", you will have the option to move either the selected picture or multiple pictures. The simplest option is to move multiple pictures at one time by choosing "All" and then "Move."

    • 3

      Complete the factory reset by once again starting at the main screen and choosing "Menu." Scroll to "Settings" (screw driver and wrench icon) and then #4 or "Phone Settings." Choose "Security" (#6) and then scroll to "Reset" (#8). You may be prompted to enter a code at this point, which should be 000000 (six zeros.)

      Hope this helps you :)

I have a Panasonic DMC-LX2 digital camera, I'm based in the UK. Has worked fine for a couple of years, but 2 weeks ago, when powered up, none of the buttons work. Screen is illuminated, lens emerges OK,...


I just got identical situation today, and I have no clue at all. However, I figure that the camera is actually working busy like someone is holding the "UP" button continuously. To see this, power on your camera at any mode except the "Scene mode". After it's on, turn the mode select knob to "Scene mode". I saw my camera menu flashing like crazy. When you press any button, the menu should stop running. But once you don't press the button, the menu start running again.
Please let me know if you have any update.

On picture taking mode, screen is black but can still take pictures


Please provide more detail about your problem.

Does the screen play back the pictures ok but not during record mode? Or is it off all the time and you used a computer to review the shots that were taken?

Check the basics listed below:

1. The screen may be switched off.
Press the display button on the back while the camera is on. This toggles the display setting between various settings such as Off/ On / Info. Keep pressing the button to try the aternate modes, it just goes round and round to 2 -3 different modes.


2, Check that the monitor brightness setting is set to medium at least in the menu's.

3. If the problem is only affecting recording then check that the main record settings are correct for the type of scene you are taking. For example don't use Beach, Snow, Candle or manual with a high shutter speed while taking regular daylight shots with minimal lighting.

. 4. If the LCD display has a hardware issue you could connect the camera to a TV using the video output jack and look at it that way. Then you'll know if the built-in LCD is ok or not.

5. Having a damaged or stuck video output jack COULD cause this problem also since that circuitry is designed to automatically shut off the built-in LCD display when you connect a video cord to it. Note that having a video cable plugged in to the video output jack would shut off the display also. Such as when you have it connected to a TV.

Flash is not working


1. You can not use the Flash when the Camera is set to Burst or Multi Burst mode.

2. You can not use the Flash when the ISO or Twilight mode is selected in the Scene Selection.

3. You can not use the Flash when mode dial is set to Movie.

Please set the Landscpe mode or Snow mode or Beach mode in the Scene Selection and check if the flash is working.

4. Try initializing the Camera and check if it works normally.

NOTE: Initializing the Camera will reset the settings of the Camera to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camera.

5. Please touch the HOME and select the SETTINGS menu in the Camera. Now, please select the MAIN settings menu. Please select the INITIALIZE option under the MAIN Settings 1 menu.

6. Try to power reset the Camera and check if it helps to resolve the issue. I suggest that you reset the Camera by removing the battery from the Camera and inserting it after 1 minute.

7. If the issue still persists then the Camera requires service.



Good Luck!!!!!!!

I bought a Sony DSC t700 approximately 6 months


If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
To set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness, press the UP ARROW on the control button until a lightning bolt icon appears on the LCD screen.

If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
When shooting MPEG movies
When set to the Twilight mode
If an external flash is connected
If in the Burst or Multi Burst mode

Please touch the MENU option on the screen of the Camera.
Then, select the REC MODE under the MENU.
Then, select NORMAL under the REC MODE.

If you're not able to select the NORMAL under the REC MODE, try Initializing the Camera.

First, please touch the HOME on the LCD screen of the Camera.
Then, select the SETTINGS in the HOME menu.
Then, select the MAIN SETTINGS under the SETTINGS.
Then, select the Initialize under the MAIN SETTINGS.

If the issue still persists after performing the troubleshooting steps provided above service of the Camera is required.

It's required to physically examine the Camera to determine the exact issue at the service center.

Hi,

I had the same problem with the Nikon 3200 Coolpix, the flash only worked with certain mode, as scene mode. I solved the problem doing a RESET ALL that is in SET UP menu.

Wont take photos outside


The symptoms you're describing could be caused by either the "Fireworks" special scene selection mode, or manual mode with too much exposure compensation. Look at your mode selector (back of the camera, upper left hand corner). Is the mode set to the still image setting (pointing at the liittle red camera)? Or is it set to special scene selection (SCN)?

If you are unintentionally in SCN mode, to get it out of "Fireworks", just turn the mode selector dial to select "still image" (pointing at the little red camera). Or you can also select an SCN mode more appropriate for outdoors. Just turn the dial to SCN, press the FUNC button, then press the left/right arrow buttons to select Portrait, Beach, Snow etc...

But if your mode selector is already in still image selection, then check to make sure that you're not in "Manual" picture mode. Turn the mode selector dial to "still picture mode" (pointing at the little red camera), then press the "FUNC" button. Now look at the bottom of the screen. If it says "Manual", press the "left" button controller once to select and put the camera in "Auto" still picture mode.
