Question about Casio EXILIM ZOOM EX-Z850 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Screen damage? no problems in two years until today after shooting several "best shot" in monochrome, then returning to regular shooting position in color. no drops ever and only gentle usage. I turned it off and put camera away, then on turning it back on, the LED screen displays one-third solid white, one-third grey and only one third (bottom) of actual image. it also has an odd black "lips" image across the middle of top half. various colored lines across the bright part. I took battery out for a while, and shot more pictures using view finder, but display remains same--somehow damaged. any help out there?

This problem can be sent to the manufacturer if you still have your warranty...this cameras strength is its weakness the LCD is virtually unprotected. cost of repair is more than cost of used replacement.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

You may try resetting the camera, go to the MENU then navigate to the setup tab the last item is Reset Camera. before you do this make sure that the memory card is not inserted.

if this should not work, you may try to load the firmware for the unit if it is available like other models, i will try to check on it too.

This is a clear problem of total death of the LCD screen.

you will have to replace the full screen.

no other go.

thank you

    but i would suggest one small repair before replacing the full screen.

    change the LCD interface bus cable.

    this can also be causing this problem.

    but we are not sure if your model uses a bus cable to connect to board. if this is a interface problem this wont cost you much for repair.

    if it is the LCD then its surely going to cost more.

    more over get it done by a authorized service center. because you can trust them.

    please post back in case if you have any more questions.

    thank you

    please dont forget to accept the solution.

I want the display to show what I am shooting on the screen. Is this possible?


Sorry, no. The E-500 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, giving you a viewfinder through which you frame and compose your shot. The LiveView capability which allows you to use a SLR as a point&shoot was developed several years after the E-500 was introduced.

Canon power shot A2000is camera has frozen up. - words card locked appear at the bottom of the screen. need help unfreezing camera so i can continue taking 'regular' pictures.


Take the memory card out of your camera and look at it. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I advise a high school yearbook and we shoot a d100. Today it's too dark to see through the viewfinder (yes the lens cap is removed), and i ger the r06 error. I've reset the camera, removed and...


First, the "r06" message is NOT an error code. It indicates the number of shots remaining in the internal memory buffer, before the camera must prevent additional shutter actuations so that it may transfer those images already in the buffer to the memory card. This "r" number will decrease with each shot taken in rapid succession until it reaches 0. The shutter release will no longer work until the buffer is transferred to the memory card, then shooting may continue again.

As far as not being able to even see through the viewfinder, it sounds like something may be obstructing the light from reaching the meter and viewfinder. The problem is most likely the position of mirror inside the camera body. With the lens off the body, the mirror should be plainly visible at about a 45 degree angle to the opening. A side view drawing of this is below. The solid red line is the mirror in the normal position. The red dashed line is the up position of the mirror when the shutter is released.

steve_con_93.jpg

When the mirror is in the "normal" position, the light from the lens is projected on a screen so that the image is visible in the viewfinder for composing and can be metered. When in the "up" position (when the shutter release is fully depressed), the light from the lens is projected on the camera's sensor for as long as set by the manual settings or program; based on ISO, aperture, etc. At the end of this time, the mirror returns to the "normal" position.

If your D100's mirror is not in the lowered 45 degree angle position, the image seen in the viewfinder is inside the camera - not that which the lens would project. Hence, the dark viewfinder, long exposure times and - I'm guessing - severely overexposed pictures because way too much light is striking the sensor because the meter is only seeing darkness.

If the mirror is ok, with the lens removed from the body, look for the aperture lever as shown in the yellow circle in the picture below:

steve_con_92.jpg

By default, the aperture is at minimum. The camera moves the lever from this position to full open (and anywhere between) as needed. You should gently move the lever to the other end of its travel to open the aperture to maximum. Point the lens away from a light source but preferably at a light colored background. Look through the lens. There should be no obstructions and be clear. Next, look at a dark colored background to find the same results. If you want, you can even allow sunlight to shine through the lens onto a sheet of paper (like a magnifying glass). The result should be a bright circle with no obstructions. Obstructions in the lens will prevent the meter in the camera from getting accurate information about the scene and if significant enough, prevent viewing through the viewfinder.

You may wish to have the camera & lens professionally cleaned and serviced to repair a mirror or lens issue.

If this was helpful, please rate it as such. Good luck!

Sony DSC W30 digital camera, lens unit problem


Hi!
If you're sure you didn't damage the lens flat cable which connect to the motherboard, the focus of the lens unit you bought on ebay doesn't work. You can simply replace the back part (with focus) of the new lens unit with your old one. It requires soldering.

A95 Power shot Images on the LCD screen are monochrome,blurred with stripes


Unfortunutly this sounds like the cable connecting the screen to the main board is either loose or damaged. I would return it to the store you got it from.

Help!


This problem is not related to plugging your camera into your computer. This is a symptom we have seen many times with various Sony cameras over several years of production. As far as we have been able to determine it is a problem with the sensor that feeds back the position of the zoom motor. I had a camera just a few days ago with this exact same issue. I swapped out the controller board and it did not change the behavior at all. I would suggest either sending the camera to a repair facility, or returning it to the manufacturer for service if you wish to get it repaired. The resolution will probably involve replacement of the set of sensors that feed-back the lens position to the control board. This issue is a problem with most Sony cameras, and as I said we have seen it several times and have not yet been able to identify the source. We forward cameras with this behavior on to Sony for service. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Out of focus viewfinder, zoom problems


1. Stop shooting while out on a shoot: Perhaps the batteries were running low? 2. Lens won't retract all the way and close: Could be same reason as #1.? 3. Viewfinder is out of focus in wide mode: Could it be that camera was left in "Macro Mode" (Flower icon)? Did you set, "Custom Function 1, or 2," and accidentally set the unintended exposure mode? 4. Sticks in telephoto, won't return to wide, blurry shots: Probably cold weather related? Perhaps, "reboot" the camera by removing all batteries for over 10-15 seconds, and replace with a freshly recharged set of NIMH batteries? If all of the above failed, then I'd say take it back to where you purchased it, and get a replacement unit. Good luck. ^_^

Night shots


Hi: Well, I think you have a problem because you cannot take still shots at night :) Not even with the best SLR. The camera as to get light to make the picture. My advices are, not only use the tripod but when you shoot, but set the timer function so you don't touch the camera when it shoot's and use a high time of exposure like 2 or 5 seconds depending on the subject... Make several experiences with low resolution and when you suceed, make it with a higher resolution ;) Regards
