Turn the camera off, then holding all the buttons in the circle on the back of the camera (up, down, left right and select buttons) with your thumb, turn the camera on. This may take a couple of tries, but it does work as I have the same problem on my camera.

My Sony Camera screen when i turn it on is white & has a pink line going diagonally through the screen


A multicolor vertical line may display on the camera LCD screen if there is glare on the subject being photographed. Avoid photographing very shiny surfaces that reflect excessive amount of light into the camera lens. Follow the procedure below to resolve this issue:
  1. Record the video or click the still pictures in a different lighting environment.
  2. On the camera, move the FOCUS AUTO/MANUAL switch to AUTO .
  3. Set the PLAY/STILL/MOVIE selector to MOVIE or STILL .
  4. Press the WHITE BALANCE button until the white balance is set to AUTO (no indicator).
  5. Record the video to new media.
  6. NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required.

Canot see subject trying to photograph


Hello, You should contact Canon about the situation. Let them know you are aware of the problem CCD sensor on the S1 camera. Actually S1 is repaired free of charge because of the CCD problem. You should suggest that your camera probably has the same defect as the S1. See what they say. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

When I view my photographs on my Nikon D50 the white on the photograph pulsates with black where the white areas are on the picture. The photographs itself is perfect but this is annoying. Can you help...


You're looking at the blown-out highlights. These are areas where you've lost all detail. Press up/down on the multiselector to change the view. Better yet, reduce the exposure to reduce/eliminate them.

Hey marafioti14,
What you need to do is select shooting mode and then under that you need to select program mode, and under program menu you need to select the color mode which should allow you to set the camera to take black and white photographs. This being said I would suggest instead of shooting the images in black and white it would be better to convert them to black and white using computer software. It is likely that the software that came with the camera allows you to convert any image to black and white. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

XT problem with white balance/aperture


You should be able to set your white balance by taking a photograph of something white filling the screen with the correct exposure. If it is underexposed, you will not get white, it will look yellowish. Make sure while you are photographing the object, you switch your lens focus mode to manual.
Go the second setup (tools) tab and select custom wb. The custom white balance screen will appear and you will choose the image that you want to base the white balance off of by pressing the set button.
This will take you back to the menu. Go back to white balance and choose custom wb down in the bottom right corner of the screen.

Hope this helps!

Screen is white and doesn't display area being photographed. Can take pictures.


From camerahacker.com:
1. Hold camera firmly in left hand.
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.
Worked for me :)

Losing green / torquoise tones


I'm betting you just have to adjust the white balance properly.  The D80 allows you to set the white balance against a grey target.  There are two ways of doing this.  First, you can put a reference grey target right on the painting, set it, and then remove the target while using the white balance you just set.  Alternatively, you can cover the lens with a diffuser of some sort, like a piece of white paper and hold the camera right where the painting will be, but pointed back towards where the light is coming from so that the diffuser is being bathed in that same light.
In case you don't know how to set the preset white balance, I suggest checking the manual.  I use a D70s, so the procedure may be very slightly different on the two cameras, but the idea is the same.  The key is that if you do this, you are pretty much guaranteed to get proper colors every time - not just now, but anywhere.  I do this often.  All that is required is a perfectly neutral patch (white to black, but with no color at all) that is being lit with the same light as you are trying to photograph in.  It takes about 5 seconds and presto - perfect white balance.  Note that this is for making pictures that look EXACTLY LIKE THEY WOULD IN PURE WHITE LIGHT.  So, it isn't for capturing proper sunsets, etc.
Good luck.
