DSC-T5 LCD SCREEN GOES WHITE

When the camera is powered on the LCD viewfinder turns white. But the camera functions normal. Can take photographs, save the photos, retrieve them. But since the viewfinder is complete white, you have to take the photos blindly. after some times the LCD went black. Now the camera is on without LCD. Please help. Chandana

I am from sri lanka and bought the camera from korea. There is no way that I can send it back to korea. The local agent for sony refused to repair it fearing that they would not have spare parts. Therefore will you please send me a repair manual for me to try out to open the camera and see. Now the camera is in a state that with even a fully charged battery, does not power up. Battery shows 4 v on multimeter when measured. I am very poor guy to opt for a new one. please help. chandana

This is an LCD fault - initially I suspect a connector failed or loosened to the main board now the tube has blown or become disconnected too. What to do- If it is a new camera,you may be able to get it replaced under warranty - I cannot say more then that as you did not specify where in the world you reside. If you have a repair facility near by- then that's the place to go. If non of there are available to you then you have little to lose in opening the camera to see it is is indeed screen connectors- because the alternative is to purchase a new camera.

No picture on LCD monitor when camera (rebel xt) is turned on


I am not sure what is the problem. You say no"picture"..is the screen totally black? Even when you try to preview photos in your camera memory? If so there is a problem with the hardware, LCD screen battery, or some other part.

If you mean you only see numbers and photo setting information on the LCD, that is normal for this Rebel models. The picture only appears in the viewfinder. It does not have a "live view' function to switch the image from the viewfinder to the LCD while you are shooting, as later model have. I have such a model and it is very disappointing.

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.

HOW DO I WORK A DIGITAL CAMERA?


STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPERATING YOUR FIRST DIGITAL CAMERA
1. READ YOUR CAMERA MANUAL before taking any photographs.
2. Check your batteries. Make sure to either recharge or replace them if you haven't used your camera as yet or for an extended period.
3. Insert your storage media card in the appropriate slot. If you forget to insert your media card, you'll get a "No Card" message.
4. Remove the lens cap.
5. Turn the camera on by either an on-off switch or a sliding lens cover.
6. Turn off the LCD. (See your camera manual for instructions)
7. Make sure your camera is set for automatic mode. Set the image quality to the size image desired-HQ (high quality) or less (to take more pictures on the same card).
8. Bring the camera up to your eye and look through the viewfinder. Positioning the target mark in the center of the viewfinder on your subject will assure that it will be in focus.
9. Push the zoom lever toward W (wide angle) to shoot wide-angle shots or push it toward the T (telephoto) to zoom in.
10. Press the shutter button half way down gently and confirm that the green light next to the viewfinder is illuminated.
11. Press the shutter button all the way down. You'll hear a beep when you take a picture. Wait until the green light stops flashing before taking another one. Remember, digital cameras have a slight delay that traditional cameras don't since it takes a second to save the image to your camera's storage media card.
12. Turn off the camera. Your new photograph should appear on your camera's LCD screen.
TIPS:
1. Use the viewfinder to compose your photograph, not the LCD screen, which will severely drain your battery power. Use your LCD screen only when shooting close-up photographs.
2. Hold your camera steady. Sometimes, the least amount of movement will cause your photo to be slightly blurred. Purchase a very small tripod so that you can provide extra stability for your camera. Also, if there isn't enough light (indoors or outdoors), make sure to use your camera's flash.
3. Experiment with your camera's features and take notes so that you can learn what works for you. Do this before you plan to use it for an important family event or trip.

LCD is not displaying


I am not familiar with this particular camera, but if there is any other form of viewfinder on it, there is probably a way to switch the picture back and forth from the LCD display to the viewfinder. Personally I would not buy a camera without a viewfinder, but right now, the only companies who make cameras with an optical viewfinder are Canon and Sony, and even they are getting away from it! Shame on them!

The other type of viewfinder that works well is the type that reads the CCR image onto a smaller screen to use as a viewfinder, like my Kodak Z712, or the Nikon P-80, I think it is, with the 18X Zoom.

One of my issues is that I like to take available light photos outdoors at night, and the LCD screen simply is not bright enough to show the image, even though the camera is able to make a decent photograph in that light. 

Most cameras will let you shut the LCD screen off to save battery power, so you will have to find out what every button on the camera will do, and make sure that the screen is powered on. It may also be that you have to recharge or replace the battery in order to have enough power to turn the screen on.

Of course, as we say in the computer world, RTFM! Most of your questions will be covered in the manual, so read it from cover to cover, with the camera in front of you. I was a freelance photojournalist for two decades, and trust me, there are still things I won't know about a new camera without either reading the manual, or experimenting.
