The 2.5" LCD on both cameras uses a special back lighting system to help cut down on sun glare.

Picture in viewfinder is green and white

The display being distorted can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the images/picture is seen to be of good quality, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.

However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the camera aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

I have a canon ds6031 eos 10d. When I turn the camera on the view screen does not show what your pointing at. Is this normal?

Yes, it is normal. This is a reasonably old DSLR, and it's designed for you to look through the viewfinder (it's more accurate anyway as it's looking through the lens). You'll find if you keep one hand under the lens and one hand on the shutter, it'll feel quite comfortable to look through the viewfinder.

You can still view photos you've taken after you've taken them though.

Lcd problem!!!

The problem is the sensor thats right below the viewfinder. The sensor is made to turn the lcd off when you put your eye up to it . The sunlight is activating the sensor try shading it and it will be fine.

Sony DSC-V1 optical viewfinder has a horizontal line in it

It shouldn't be there, but as the optical viewfinder is completely separate from the photographic light path it's nothing to worry about either.

Normally it's caused by either a hair or fibre which has somehow entered the viewfinder (rare) or more commonly by a fine scratch across the front window to the viewfinder. Also check the rear viewfinder viewing lens as the same damage could occur there but as that lens is relatively protected it's unlikely.

Any further fixing involves dismantling the DSC-V1 and possibly sourcing spares made of purest unobtanium so if the camera works perfectly well then leave the screwdrivers safely in the toolbox for now.

Optical viewfinder zoom isn't working

no ideas on how you can get it working. There is I should think a connection adrift. Try the Konica Tech Support Team But be prepared for a zilch answer- I don't think a 'repair' will come into the equation

Oudoors with my!!!!

While it is no help for those with other cameras, Sony has fixed the problem with the FD91 which has a viewfinder that is not bothered by sunlight. The F505 LCD evidently works good in sunlight.
