Is the battery setting set to Battery Save mode. If it is then the view screen does not work.

Does it display pics off the card or menus, but no "live" views? that is a classic example of a CCD issue, common in the C5050 line due to a bad Sony suppied CCD, Not so common on the 8080 line.

    Oly has a somewhat flat repair charge for these C-8080 cameras of about 168.00. This is by far less than the cost of a replacement of this caliber. This seems to cover almost any repair short of water damage.

Hi Suddenly my g11 is blind lcd is working but camera doesn't see anything lcd is black in all modes like electronic courtain does not open exposing sensor all other functions are seems to be...

There is two ways to view your "taking picture" with the LCD and with the viewfinder, you can shut the LCD off to save battery power and use the viewfinder and that is what I think has happened. a touch of the DISP button and it will switch from the LCD to the viewfinder. here is a diagram

With you saying the LCD is working for functions but not for taking pictures this is what I suspect is the problem.

I have an e500. The viewer will not come on for taking pics.

Unfortunately with the EVOLT E-500 it does not have the capability for a live view LCD screen. You must shoot images using the viewfinder only. The newer Olympus SLR cameras now have both viewfinder and live view LCD.

Olympus E410 viewfinder problem

As far as I am aware, you can use the viewfinder OR the live view, but not both at the same time.

This is because a mirror has to flip up out of the way to reveal the sensor for the live view to work, and the mirror needs to be in the down position to reflect the image into the viewfinder.

Switch between the two modes and double-check if there is a problem.

Also try removing the lens from the camera and checking the position of the mirror. It could be that it has got stuck in the up osition.

Hope this helps!

How to view in the LCD monitor when taking picture.

Unfortunately with this camera it does not have a live view LCD screen. You will need to shoot all images with the viewfinder and then use the LCD to review them.

LCD panel cracked

The price to have the LCD replaced would probably cost 75% of a new one. If you can do without the LCD and it downloads the pictures to your PC, at least you've got something.
That camera has a viewfinder, so you can still take pictures, right.
Sorry about the bad news.

Nikon D50 LCD Display does not work

NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!

C-8080 Turns off/on randomly..

Hi Galaxy,

Try running camera directly on DC from charger and see if it stays functioning.
If it does, they you either have:-
1) a faulty Lion battery
2) the battery detect circuit in the camera is faulty (reporting low battery and forcing shutdown)
3) the power switch on top of the camera may be leaky or partially collapsed
4) internal power supply circuit in camera has developed a fault.

Good luck...hope that the issue is the battery.

LCD Monitor on ,and the Electronic Viewfinder turned off

If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
