Re: When a camera is inoperable or fails to function, or...

Follow the steps below in the order presented: Perform a power reset on the camera. Performing a power reset on the digital camera will normally correct issues such as the camera locking up or not turning off. When the power reset is performed properly, the camera will prompt you to update the camera’s date and time. This is an indication that the memory has been cleared and no further reset time is required. The power reset procedure must only be performed on a camera that has been running on battery power. If an AC power adapter is being used, the power reset procedure does not apply. This is due to the fact that the internal capacitor is fully charged. To execute a camera power reset, perform the following steps: Turn off the Digital Camera. Remove the Compact Flash Card or Secure Digital Card, if one is being used. Turn on the Digital Camera. CAUTION: To avoid damaging the camera, ensure the shutter button is not pressed during the following steps. Turn on Live View on the rear LCD. CAUTION: Care should be used when performing Step 5 to ensure that the camera is not dropped. Open the battery door and remove the batteries with the camera turned on. Re-insert the batteries after five minutes have elapsed. Turn on the camera. The camera should request an update for date and time (with the exception of the HP Photosmart 120 and 912 series cameras). Format the memory card. Navigate to the delete menu which varies with each camera, and format the internal memory and/or the memory card. CAUTION: Reformatting the memory card erases all of the files that are stored in the card. All photos, scripts, and miscellaneous files are deleted permanently. To preserve the existing images, use a spare card or a card that is already formatted.

White LCD Screen disolay.


Sadly it sounds like the screen has been broken, often times any white on an lcd screen mean that the liquid crystals have been damaged, most likely from dropping the camera or bumping it into something. I had the same thing happen to an old camera of mine. Sorry for the bad news, but it is probably just as or more expensive to fix the screen than it is to just buy a new camera unless it is a very expensive professional camera.

The LCD screen is cracked, and what you see is the liquid part of the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) that is leaking and spreading.

The LCD is available for about $40, and that puts the repair service at about $75 which includes the part, installation and return shipping of the camera. All for just $75! Much cheaper than throwing it away and spending $200 or more on a new one.

I have a canon Powershot A480. It keeps coming up with the faultLens Error Restart camera. How do I do this


Service & Support Issue: Camera displays "Lens error, restart camera" on the LCD monitor.
Solution: Possible solutions for a Lens Error message PowerShot A480.

The "E18" or "Lens" error message indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover.
This error may appear where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting such as, for example, when pressure is applied to the lens or the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. The error may also be displayed if the lens unit/camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera. Solution
Check the following when you operate the camera to avoid applying pressure to the lens and surrounding area:
  • Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting.
  • Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.
If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera off and then on again, or if the error code is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction may have occurred. Please click here to set up service for your camera online.

I have a red line through my photos.


Answer ID 16497 Why do I sometimes see a faint vertical line in my viewfinder? Why do I sometimes see a faint vertical line in my viewfinder? --> With some DSLR cameras, a normally clear LCD screen is used to display Auto Focus area brackets in the viewfinder. When power is supplied to the screen, you may sometimes see a faint vertical line appear in your viewfinder. This is perfectly normal and is just part of the finely etched circuitry used to power and illuminate the liquid crystal segments of the AF area brackets.

LCD monitor and electronic viewfinder


If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
