My daughter was taking pictures the other night when she noticed the
LCD screen seemed a little fuzzy. When she looked at the pictures she
had taken the image and all the information was backwards. Seen
through the viewfinder everything was o.k. I haven't seen anyone
mention this problem before. Is this the beginning of the "sudden
death syndrome" I've heard about? Thoughts and suggestions are most

Re: Backwards Image on LCD
The manual for this camera is very well documented. I can see where poor lighting can cause out of focus and the aperture not set right and the camera moving during the shot but not the image being backwards if I understand you correctly. Sounds like she simply shot into a mirror.
Did the camera get dropped by accident? That could knock an "internal connector" slightly off causing the electrical signals to cross. The connectors in these cameras have extremely small traces and it doesn't take too much to misalign a trace with the connector. I'd explore that possibility first.
Then call Olympus on this one you might need to service the camera.
PS: I use to test my tech's trouble shooting ability by reversing connectors to get the same effect.

Not really a solution, sorry, but I've got the very same problem. I haven't noticed the time before tv faults, but nontheless, it greenscreens or like in your case, redscreens as well. I've been told to open the back, which I did to check the status of the capicitors, which I've done. But, the capacitors "seem" fine. No bulging or popped tops. So, I'm at a stand still...not sure what to do at this point. If someone gives you solution, I sure would appreciate your forwarding it on to me. Thanks. Robert
I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.
Hi I just experienced the same problem.Could NOT figure out what went wrong.The LCD screen image was blurred and as a result the pics I took were blurry:(
My husband then took over and simply cleaned off the front lens and POOF! It is back to good!Hope this helps!
Hi, I have the same problem with my sony DSC-S700. I think someone drop it, and it took pictures with horizontal line specially outdoor. I noticed that the lens shutter does'nt open and close. All I did was to tap on the lens several times and everythings back to normal. I so happy my camera is working again. Thanks to your idea. Brenton
