Dim LCD Display on F505V

Just picked up the F505V and have noticed that the LCD is markedly dimmer than my DSC-S70 -- yes, the backlight is turned on and all settings are the same on both cameras. Has anyone had a similar experience? Do you think this is something that needs to be sent in for adjustment/replacement? Allso, the 505V seems to be more prone to red-eye than the S70 and the S70's colors seem more saturated. For those others of you out there with experience on both cameras, What are your thoughts?

I've not compared the two directly, but I can easily turn the brightness control on the 505v up to the point where the LCD it way too bright, so I don't think there's an issue in general. That doesn't mean that there is not a malfunction in your particualr camera, though.

Location of LCD backlight fuse.


There isn't one! The invertor maybe faulty. Try a new invertor.

The display is dim and hard to see.


First, make sure that your brightness is turned up. You can access this from the menu by selecting "Display" then adjusting the display between 50% & 100%.

If the brightness is at 100% and the display is still dim, this is an indication that there is a problem with the backlight that lights up the LCD display from behind.

The backlight is integrated into the LCD display, so the entire display needs to be replaced. Was the unit dropped? If so, perhaps the LCD flex cable pulled out of the connector, slightly from one side, disconnecting the backlight. We strongly suggest that you don't try to repair the unit yourself. Additional damage can occur.

I SEE the green light when I turn on the camera but LCD screen of Sony DSC-F505V is dark black, nothing happens-total silence and cannot take any pictures. Did I loose my camera? Solution?


Hi,

Based on the information provided it seems that the issue may be with the LCD Screen. You can check if the Camera is working by capturing images and inserting the Memory Stick in the Computer Memory Card slot. If the image capturing is normal then the images can be saved to the Computer. If the images are not getting captured, then the issue may be with the Camera. We can try power resetting the Camera to resolve the issue.
Turn off the Camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
If the issue persists after resetting, then service may be required to identify the exact cause.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My Bose Wave is doing fine except that the brightness of the display in the front goes dim and bright, sometimes flickering. Most of the time it is dim and not readable. I did change out the 9V battery...


Hi.

This is a common problem with this model.

The LCD has a dimmer circuit that can be responsible, in some case it is not the dimmer regulation, but the LCD control circuit itself. In that case you have no LCD backlight and the display is almost unreadable. If that is the problem, changing dimmer settings with procedure below will not help.

Most of the time the problem is dimmer regulation.

About dimmer regulation:

Try disconnecting the unit power cord for ten minutes and connect back.
Try holding down CD or CLOCK button and pressing at the same time the volume buttons. This procedures regulates Bose dimmers setting in a scale from one to 9. The dimmer has separate settings for medium and low brightness. Set both to 5 if you want to disable dimmer settings.

The problem is well known for this model of Sony DSC-F505V. The circuit board behind the display is the problem. Its replacement code is SY-62. As symptoms, sometimes the camera start but next time stays with the display black and the green light on. Cheers

Dim Screen on the 2001 Toyota Prius


Yes the screen dims automatically when the lights are on to suit night driving. I am not specifically familiar with the 01 model, however on my 08 model, the display brightness is also manually adjustable via a button located below and to the right of the display. The button is marked with a series of short lines assembled in an arc. Hope this helps.

I have a Dell laptop D505. The laptop powers up but the screen display is very dim. I can't see the image on the monitor. I've tried to manually increase the color/brightness button and nothing changes. ...


Sounds like your inverter or your backlight is failing. The inverter is an easy repair, the backlight can be replaced but it involves taking the LCD panel apart, The backlight comes installed on new screens. I can include a service manual below and possibly a generic guide to backlight replacement....
