IstD LCD Screen...Problem

Just a minor question regarding the (my) istD LCD screen. I hadn't noticed this before (probably because I was concerned with other things), but lately I've noticed when I bring up "menu" on the istD LCD screen, some of the white color letters in the menu headings have either a faint reddish (and sometimes bluishish or greenish) tint to them. Only a single color to some of the letters, some remain white. It's even more pronounced if looking at the screen on an angle but still noticeable if looking head on. It doesn't escape me that these are of course the primary colors of an LCD screen. Maybe it's asways been this way and I didn't pay particular attention but just in case my sceen is changing, may I ask if others notice this on their istD LCD screen. Just look at the word "format". My "m" is reddish for example. It also may relate to what brightness setting one has set their LCD screen to. I just reset mine to it's minimum and I don't have my istD with my (on location) to recheck. Thanks!

Re: istD LCD Screen...Problem

Resolution on the LCD is rather "rough," but I think all these tiny screens are that way. Considering the "roughness" of the photos in playback, and their sharpness when viewed full on on a computer, the text is about up to as good as this screen can produce. Or, in other words, I'm see'in what your see'in as for text. I think it's just normal.

My Sanyo camera has 2 black dots (like polka dots) on the screen and a black line at the bottom. They don't affect the picture but is a problem when trying to focus the camera.


Hello Kitomari4

OK, the fact that you only notice the the lines and spots on the lcd itself, means that the lcd itself is damaged. This is most likely due to an internal crack on the lcd. I would suggest you get the screen replaced at your nearest camera repair centre.

Please feel free to let me know if you need ant further assistance.

Kind regards

The lcd screen distorts & my pictures show up pink on the display screen on my ixus 500


If the menus and icons look normal, but images are distorted or discolored, you may have an image sensor (CCD) problem. See Canon's service notice regarding this issue here. Canon will repair your camera at no cost regardless of warranty. Contact them at your regional Canon service agency.

Lcd backlight blown, poss. capacitor?


the flash capacitor witch stays charged for days even when your camera off has very high voltage on it and probably arched over into more that just blowing your lcd screen.

only thing I would do is junk it or buy one on ebay with minor problems and start repalcing boards, get some fine jewlers philips screwdrives and small flat, and be very careful. I wouldnt try to replace any surface mounted componets.

Fuji f700


I recently had trouble with the LCD Display coming up with a black screen. So I mailed it to Fuji with a letter explaining the problem. About 3 weeks later I got it back in the mail and it seem to be working fine until a month later. I turned it on and the LCD display show a black screen only now it has white lines. I'm so incredible mad and extremely dissapointed in Fuji. Reading online I have notice many people having trouble with Fuji Products. I WILL NEVER BUY a Fuji again!!!

Date/time problem on *ist d


There is a small re-chargeble battery inside the camera that charges of the main battery. Chances are that battery had just drained when the date/time reset occured, but should be fine after you recharge.
