Hello csdiskau:

Does the camera come on when you slide the cover?
If nothing happens, the problem may be in the camera.
If the camera starts, but has no picture, then there is internal problems and could be a bad ccd.

If the camera starts and you can start the menus, there is internal problems.

EOS400D digital, I cant see the subject through the lens, I have taken the lens cover off


Hi Carol,
There are two things that I can think of which will prevent you from sighting through the view finder.
1. When your camera is switched on for live-view shooting mode or vice versa. That is, you can only see the subject in the LCD screen or through the view finder one at a time.
2. If you are using the LCD screen to frame your subject and you encounter this problem, it is most likely caused by the settings of the camera. Try increasing the ISO to around 400 or above, reduce the shutter speed to anything below 1/20 and the aperture to around F:5.6 or less (that depends on your lens.
Hope you resolve the problem by now but if you haven't try those tips.
Regards.

I have a fugi fine pix, when using it in bright sun light i cant see anything


Geofchaam,
You could be experiencing one of two issues:
1) You are having a difficulty viewing the image on the back of the camera (not the view finder). This is common on cameras out in the sun, try cupping your spare hand over the screen to cast a shadow on the screen.
2) You cannot view anything in the view finder. Since the view finder has its own tiny LCD display inside of it, it is displaying what image the camera will take if you press the shutter release. I would double check to see if the camera is set correctly for shooting in bright sunlight (check your owners manual, or set the camera to Automatic), and if there is a difference between what you're seeing in the viewfinder, and what images the camera is taking, consider calling Fuji, as it sounds like a hardware issue.

Brand new batteries will die really fast and we can't figure out why


in some digital cameras when you use lcd screen to take a picture battery consumption is very high, try using the optical veiw finder, also you can use litium batteries which is more expensive than normal alkaline.
there is a new alkaline battery just for digital cameras available in good stores , from energiser

Can you use the lcd screen as a veiw finder to take shots


You can enable "live view" in the set-up menu. See your manual for details.

Hi, I have a Nikon d50. My skills are very poor and I haven't used the camera in 4months. My problem is the picture veiwer is not on and i need to look thur the veiw rather than looking at the screen. Help


Digital SLR cameras are different from other point and shoot cameras, in that you have to look through the view finder, you can not use the LCD Display to frame your shot.

Hope this helps

Blank Screen


I have been facing the same problem with same model and this is permanent problem it seems with this model (Sony Cybershot DSC S40). It causes because of the following:

SYMPTOMS
LCD display is either blank or WHITE. When the cabinet is opened or LCD flexible cable is
touched, the symptom disappears. This is caused by connection defect or poor contact between connector and LCD flex cable due to the pressure or stress created by the rib in the front cabinet
to the connector.


Send me a email and I shall send you the solution (two files) received from Sony authorized person. You have to open the camera to solve this. Do not open the camera . Just get the idea about where the problem is. I never opened the camera even after seeing this solution 2 yrs back. However, I have a plan for going to service centre with this solution. I hope they can open the camera and solve this. But not getting time to go there in service centre.

I used the following temporary solution and it works to get LCD in its normal condition:

LCD looks like a rectangle is not it? Hold the camera in its normal position as you are going to take a picture (camera is switched on and you are not seeing anything in the LCD, which looks white or dull). Now GENTLY PRESS by the thumb of your right hand at a place near to LCD at the BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER of the rectangle (remember not on the LCD (rectangle) but just outside of it) until you see the normal colour of your LCD. Do few times starting with less pressure and then slightly increase it untill you see a normal LCD. I have been following this procedure for the last 2 yrs and not feeling to go for serving. (This solution I found in a forum only).

Good luck!

SCREEN AND VIEW FINDER BLANK


Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.

Nikon coolpix 5700


at the back of the camera next to the view finder (bottom right hand corner) is a button and icon marked SEL. pressing this button toggles the lens image from the view finder to the lcd screen and back again. IF neither view is available then I suspect your camera needs some TLC at a repair shop. hope this helps.

PROBLEM WITH LCD AND FINDER SETTING


If you can see images in play mode, previously taken pics, then check to see if iris is opening and closing, could be seized vanes on iris motor. If nothing is ever visible on LCD or the eyepiece, this is what the manual has to say- remove batteries, reinsert them after a minute. If it persists press the reset button with a fine tip, its located inside the memory stick/battery cover. all your settings will be cleared. Use your warranty if valid Good luck
