It's an LCD ribbon cable problem, particular to your model camera. It's easily fixed if you (or someone that you know that's technically inclined) are not afraid to go inside your camera.

I turn on my olympus stylus 600 camera and all i get it a black screen.


You need to check whether the LCD screen is damaged or not. The best way to do this is shoot a picture, and then down load to PC. Check whether the picture is ok or not. If the picture is ok, then LCD is bad. You need to replace your LCD.

If you wan tto do it yourself, the following are some sites for help:

Buy a used camera (one sold for parts) through ebay.com very cheap. Buy a jewellers screwdriver set for $1 from Dollar store. Then replace the LCD.

5D-Mark II screen flashes with reflecting objects


No. It's simply a menu setting to show you where potentially overexposed highlights in the final image will be. The function can be set to show shadows or highlights.

I don't currently have a manual to hand, but if you can't find how to turn it off in your own manual then report back and I'll have a thorough rummage for one.

return it asap. It could be something going on with the auto focus or the CCD unit. If you can get it replaced it's easier to do now than later.

White Screen


I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!
