SOURCE: Can not capture video or picture

A law suit was filed against Samsung for the SC models including your D23. in accordance with the class action settlement, Samsung has agreed to repair or replace the effected models for zero cost including shipping and insurance. visit this website http://www.samsungclassaction.com/7.html or call Samsung repair @ there 1-800 number. Samsung also agreed to refund your money if you paid to have the unit fixed yourself or if you purchaced another camcorder to replace the faulty samsung. I called and they e-mailed me a UPS label to print out and shipping costed nothing. takes about two weeks for the repair and then it will be delivered @ your door like new:)

While i switch on the camera it shows a good display but after having one and two snaps the screen become dim and later on just the lining appears


Could be a problem with the LCD screen viewer or CCD sensor go to bad. This condition is the same when your pics are showed in the pc ? Are you check ISO settigns? If yes, and the problem continue, first... could be a problem with the LCD viewer screen, or, second choice could be a problem with the CCD sensor or go to bad; in both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Canon service.
I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

If your camera have some "anti-vibration" setup, check if this is activated, or its possible that this system is go to bad or need to be recalibrated.

Hope this helps

After downloading photos, instead of them opening in Finepix viewer screen (to allow me to rotate & crop etc) I keep getting a 'Finepix Viewer - Desktop' screen. This does not show the pictures...


Hi pamelaknott3,

In this case you would have to check the autorun settings in your finepix viewer sofware , there may be a setting which would indicate autorun or autostart for the finepix viewer desktop application , once you discover it , you would have to disable it, if not then please try uninstalling the finepix software and then reinstalling it so that it loads the default settings that was ok for you earlier.

Hope this helps ..:)

If you have any further queries, just get back to me and I would love to help you out.

Nothing or black screen shows up when pic is taken


The problem is with the software in the camera! So take your camera to the nearby service center and do a format of your camera! That will fix your problem. Also check whether there is any problem in ur LCD screen!
