Question about Samsung Digimax V800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Screen does not work, stays black

The screen of my V800 does not work at all, although otherwise the camera seems to operate normally: takes pictures, flashes, zooms etc. What happened is that I dropped the camera into sea, but the case must have kept most of the water from penetrating. Perhaps the worst mistake was to try to turn the camera on right after this, some shortcut my have occurred. It does not look having been wet inside though. I also tried to clean the connectors, but the screen still won't work. Could it be that the screen has failed (and perhaps can be replaced?) or is some electronics likely to burn in under these circumstances?

Water and LCD screens don't mix. I'd say the screen itself is shot, and will need to be replaced. However, I cannot find anyone selling these parts. Your best bet may be to watch for a broken one on eBay - so long as it's not the LCD that's broken, and buy it for parts.

The camera takes pictures with flash, but then as you hit display the screen stays black and the picture was never taken. How can this get fixed?

Do you mean that no picture file was actually recorded, or do you really mean that the resulting picture file recorded a black picture?
If you mean that you're camera is taking black pictures, this sounds like a stuck shutter. A stuck shutter is a common failure mode for digital cameras, and it seems to be especially so for any of the Canon A6XX series (although these cameras are awesome otherwise). The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The srceen stays black when you take a picture

If the menus work, that tells you the LCD is OK, so the next possible thing is the shutter is jammed shut - marginal repair now.

place your camera in a hot press, or where your boiler is, on shelf and it might dry out in a day or two, then try it again.

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera

maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.

Black screen

If you can play back images ok ( colour & resolution normal ) but in capture mode you have no image then the CCD sensor in your camera is faulty. Replace.
