Question about Kodak EasyShare DX7440 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Display won't display anything, it merely turns on backlight.

My digital camera is 2.5 years old, and after one month of sitting i came back to it, turned it on, and can't see anything on the lcd display. the camera will still shoot pictures, it makes the same machine noises as it previously did when switched into different shooting modes, so the only real problem is the fact that the camera will not show anything on the display. i can turn the display on and off but the only difference is the dim backlight. any help would be appreciated.

I have a Samsung Digital camera was working fine. I just turned it on and their is a black smudge on the display screen. It wasn't dropped or anything just appeared out of no where. It doesn't

As you say the camera is only a month old it should be under warranty, better advised to take it to the authorized service center. By the way if the smudge is on the LCD then I feel that the LCD is damaged due to pressure or force at that particular spot.

Sounds like you have a faulty LCD, or the backlight in the LCD has failed.

Check eBay for a replacement screen.

My display screen on the back of the camera is really dark and I am unable to view pictures or even see any menu commands. Is there anything I can do about this? I have had this camera a good 6 years and...

Not an unusual problem for this camera (I have one). You can find the LCD screens on Ebay for around $20. If you Google how to replace the LCD screen on YouTube, you can find a video of how to do it. It's not hard. :)

My Canon EOS 400D won't switch on. No power.

Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? Are the batteries also 3 years old?

The problem is the iris is stuck.

The solution is:
1. Move the camera to TV mode(the wheel with AUTO,M,TV,...)
2. Set the exposure time to 15 seconds(15")
3. Take a picture.
4. After 7 seconds remove the batteries and put them back on.
5. Repeat the procedure until it works.

Nikon d80 top display lcd panel no longer displays anything

If it 1) Does not work well after a FULL charge. and 2) the camera is OLD. All I can say here is your battery is OLD (bad). If the Charge time is Quick this also also an indication of and OLD tired worn out battery. They are useless after 7 years...... and they are very weak after 5. Some go bad after as little as 3.

Canon S3 no display on LCD screen

I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

I tried their solutions twice and it WORKS. My S3 is working fine now.

Dark LCD

Is it possible that you've gone into M (manual) mode and the shutter speed is fast and a small aperture (large number) been selected? Or has the Exposure compensation been adjusted to be -2? Does it do the same thing in fully automatic mode? It certainly sounds like some setting has been adjusted incorrectly.
