Question about Olympus Camedia C-2100 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

Backwards Image on LCD

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 welcomed. Thanks.---John

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.

I have a 2 year old LG LCD TV (model 42LG60) and I am having problems with the screen. I turn it on and everything is fine for a few minutes and then the screen goes to red or green lines that are fuzzy....

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

Very slow to turn on and has small light spots all over screen

The first thing to look for are swollen capacitors on the power board.replace them if so.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?

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.

Night time pic mode

The one thing I have noticed about the DV179, is that it takes poor quality photos and video, unless it is in pure sunshine... :)

Yes, zooming in does distort the pic's, so be sure to put the stabilization mode to 'on', this does help a bit.
