I have found a simple permanent solution to this problem. The problem seems to be to do with the camera detecting when the mini usb plug is inserted. When you put the plug in the screen comes back to life. Therefore insert a small piece of twisted wire into the socket such as a paper clip cut to a small length so you can leave it there and close the lid. I was ready to throw this camera away but this fixed it.

My LCD was black but everything else worked fine. I snacked it against the palm of my hand as recommended and it worked immediately. Wish I had know when I was travelling.

I have this Nikon AW100 camera for over a year now, and since recently I also have this problem. I really love this camera but now only the video function works and for all the rest the screen doesn`t go on. It does take photos but the screen is off, nothing worked to fix the camera for me.
I hit the camera a few times, just like you people said here, with the front of the camera on my leg, palm of the hand, etc and nothing happened. (and I hit it really hard as it can survive a drop off 2 meters)
Then I hooked the camera up with a usb cable to a pc and unhooked it again and for a moment the `Coolpix`logo came up and in photo-modus the screen turned on but 3 seconds later turned off again.
Too bad, so now I`m returning this camera to the shop and send It to Nikon and I hope this is guarantee! Jimi, Belgium

With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.

All you have to do is lay your camera with the LCD side down, make sure its on a soft surface like a carpet or a pillow. Once you have it laying down, put a peice or two of newspaper, or any paper, on top of the camera. and then hit it a few times with something. like a brush or anything hard like that. it worked for me. :) good luck.

SOURCE: nikon coolpix S3- most of the screen is black on shooting mode

I had the same problem with mine. I searched the web and came across this one. My camera had a black screen but everything else worked. I read some of the comments and a few people said to hit it. I hit the camera in the side of my hand a few times and it started to work. Thanks for the info. It sound carzy but it works.

Now working Nikon coolpix

This happened to me too!
Turn the dial to setup, push the menu button & select reset all. This will restore the defaults & let you use the flash again.

Have you got the user manual? If not, you can download it from www.iusermanual.com.
I am not familiar with you videocam but the mannual shows all of the buttons and functions etc. There are what appears to be at least one critical button on the outer edge of the LCD screen itself. Perhaps this may affect its functions and be causing your problem.
Anyway, have a good look at the manual and be sure you understand the functions of the buttons.
Because everything else works OK it is most likely caused by pressing the wrong button at the wrong time. Alternatively, there may be a bad contact at the connection between LCD screen and camera.

How do i turn on the camera of my sony vaio vpcee31fx


Hi,

There is no specific button to turn ON the camera in VAIO computers. Start the computer, search for the application ArcSoft Web Companion 3, the camera will start functioning. You can also use the camera with other video conferencing applications. Remember, the camera will only work with any one application at a time.

Thanks!

Sanyo XACTI HD1 Camera-No Pictures / Videos captured.


I have intermittent problems of this type too. Occasionally I get a blank screen in the display mode.

Does the red light on the back of your camera flash while the screen is dark? Mine does.

It is beginning to bug me a lot. It may be because I got my camera wet in the past (and hence I have broken my camera), but I doubt that would result in a partial failure.

I think that the Xacti HD1/HD2 has issues a bit like a blue screen of death on an old Windows computer when faced with storage problems.

I.e. it works but crashes sometimes when it cannot store to its storage medium.

These things work for me
1) Turning the power on and off via the button underneath the screen.
2) Removing and re-inserting the SD card.
3) Turning the power on and off by removing the battery.
4) Using a different (and faster?) SD card.
I am still using my HD2, but I am finding that I must attempt solutions 1-3 about once a day.

It could be because the card I have been using recently is not fast enough. The HD2 accepts both SD and SDHC cards. My SDHC card (which is newer) seems to result in fewer problems, either because the SDHC format is more suited to the Xacti HD2 or becaues the SDHC card I have is faster that then SD card I have. I suspect problems with the speed of the card. I am using cheap SD cards.

Panasonic NS-DV 65 video camera, Tape not detected?


TRY THIS, (CREDIT TO LABBER) IT WORKED FOR ME
I did have a similar problem as above, and has not been able to use the camera for a long time as power turns itself off in less than 2 mins. I tried the solution #3 (by labber) above. which i have copied and pasted below .
1. Take out the tape - mine stayed on longer (without blinking) when the tape was not in.
2. press the menu button (near the viewfinder)
3. Use he wheel on top next to the viewfinderto scroll through the choices
4. Choose "display setup" by pushing the wheel in
5. Choose "C. Rest" by pushing the wheel in
6. Turn camera off
7. Next time you turn camera on you should be able to view tapes and record.
IT DID NOT WORK THE FISRT TIME SO I PUT MY FINGER IN TO TRY TO GENTLY PUSH BUTTON WHEN I TOOK THE TAPE OFF AND THEN TRIED SOLUTION ABOVE AGAIN, AND THIS TIME, IT WORKED. BUT PLEASE DONT INSERT YOUR FINGERS IN AS I DID TRY THE SOLUTION 2 OR THREE TIME IT SHOULD BE OK, HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU,
THANKS HOPE THIS HELPS.
