Did I break my camera???

My camera shows "card cover open" on the LCD screen when I push power. It will then do nothing. I think I broke it when I tried to take out the memory card. Can anyone help???

If the battery door does not close completely, this can happen. My old FE-100 was dropped, and so the little teeth that engage the outer edge of the door were gone. The only think we could do was duct-tape the battery door shut.

U can´t do anything, it´s pretty normal to happen, if it´s under warranty send it to the repair centre and they will repair for free.

Fuji FinePix S9500 has a blank viewer & lcd screen, it has powered up but nothing is being displayed in either.

This took me a bit, in fact I needed to got to one of my Fujifilm cameras to see if I could duplicate what I was thinking the problem could be. So here goes. There is a small button on the back body just off the lower right side of the LCD screen it has Disp/Back written on it. What I'm saying is that this button has been pushed to give a blank screen which will affect both the viewfinder and the LCD. To get to that point I had the camera in Manual mode ISO at 100 and the lens cap on. The aperture was set for F9 and the shutter at 1/60th. My camera has a "shake" icon so in Auto and program there was the shake icon on the LCD screen it also showed in the "A" mode as well. Now that said my version of your camera may be a few models ahead, your camera may not have the camera shake feature or icon. In short I think you have pressed the "Disp/Back" button and changed the view mode.

My canon sd10 digital camera lcd balnk/black bu tphoto view in lcd ..lcd like dot.dot.. screen bu photo not show in screen so i donot photo capture

Had the same problem with my SD10. The switch in the AV port sometimes gets dirty or corroded, and tricks the camera into thinking that an AV plug is inserted. This will turn off the screen.

To fix it, repeatedly insert and remove an AV cable into the port several times. This may help break off any corrosion or dirt that may be holding this switch open.

Digital camera screen broken

A cracked screen will cost you, but maybe not as much as you think. Instead of replacing the whole , you can spend about $300 and replace the screen yourself. All you need is a small screwdriver.

1)Turn off the power to your screen and unplug all cables connected to it.
2)Remove the battery, if one is installed.
3)Locate the covered screws around the cracked screen. Remove the rubber/plastic covers, then unscrew the screws.
4)Gently remove the plastic frame around the cracked screen and set it aside.
5)Disconnect any power cords or cables going into the LCD screen.
6)Remove the cracked screen and slide the new screen into place. Replace any tape or plastic fasteners that hold it in place.
7)Reconnect all internal cords to the screen.
8)Screw in the frame and replace all the screw covers.
9)Reconnect the power supply and all external cables to the LCD screen and switch it on.

Broken LCD - Need cost or can I avil Warranty as in Warranty period.

Unfortunately I would be pretty sure that the warranty wouldnt cover the cost of your screen as it would come under misuse... ie: you broke it dropped it caught it damaged it ?. and not covered under electronic breakdown or fair wear and tear , however dont despair a replacement screen is not that much and fitting it is relatively simple with the right tools and a steady hand and good eyesight ..Cost of a replacement is available on the Olympus website .. however if the screen just stopped working and you didn't break it then yes it would be covered under warranty ..

Kyocera finecam 410 "cover open"

i had a camera that did the same thing. on mine there was a little tab on the memory card cover door thing that pushed a little button. i think a piece of the little tab on mine broke off so it wasnt pushing the button so i took a little piece of paper or something and folded it really small and set it on top of the little button thing and then closed the door and that worked for me

Beeps repeatedly, lense won't retract...won't take pictures?

Hi Jeanice21, I just posted the same problem a few minutes ago with my SD400. I followed a few steps of the suggested solutions and here's what worked for me.

1) take apart the front and back by unscrewing the six screws holding the camera together
2) on the left of the flash, there are two little retangular holes with grooved dials in them
3) using a little flat head screwdriver, push up or down to turn the grooves while power up in the movie or capture mode
4) the lens retracted at this point and my camera started working again. Good luck!

Shooting mode shows nothing.

Hello,

I just had this issue with my camera (my 15 year old son solved it for me ;-) ).

The viewfinder was active in "record" mode and the LCD was "active" because you could see a little back light but no image. The "playback" mode would let me review pictures in the LCD though so I know it is capable of showing information.

If you push the display key/button a couple of times you can see the picture move from the viewfinder to the LCD and have just a picture and or a picture and information.

So try setting the camera to "record" mode (lens comes out) and then push the "display button" which is on the back of the camera just to the right of the LCD on the lower right side several times and see if the LCD starts to work.

It could be that somehow the display button was pushed by mistake.

Olympus FE-140

Yes I had the same problem, however, where is says "push to eject," it means to push the the memory card down and it will eject. You pushed down the latch for the plastic door cover. Try pushing something into the hole so the camera thinks the door is closed. I am still having trouble with mine. Hope this helps alittle.
