Question about FUJIFILM Cameras

1 Answer

Display screen does not show picture

My display screen shows no picture, yet the camera still works. I decided to try to take a picture with flash and one without, to see the problem. The picture with the flash was alright, and the one without it was pitch black. Mind you, I took the pictures in a well lit room. I mean, even if my settings were not appropriate for the lighting the picture as taken in, there was supposed to be something there. I am using the Fujifilm Finepix s4300.

Could be your camera is still working, but some settings are messed up?
You could have turned off the display. In the menu with IMAGE DISP. Is used to save battery power.
Then try making pictures in the mode automatic. Because if you switched to scene like bright sunlight or snow your pictures can be very dark.

SOURCE: Nikon D50 LCD Display does not work

NatD, The D50 and indeed most SLR digital cameras [ I have a D40 ] does not allow you to take pictures using the LCD display ... this is by design, you are meant to use the viewfinder and the image you see through it is straight through the lens via a mirror block [ called a reflex pentamirror or prism ]. When the mirror is down such that you can see the image in the viewfinder it is obscuring the sensor [ the bit that takes the picture ] and when you take a shot the mirror lifts and the picture is recorded. Its this reason that DSLR's dont use the LCD to shoot, however there are a few now available that do let you do this, such as olympus, new panasonic one and higher end Nikon and Canon cameras. Hope this explains it without getting too detailed!

SOURCE: No display at all. But able to take pictures with Canon A75

Sounds like you might have accidentally turned the display off. Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once on the back of your camera.

When I take a photo the display screen flashes


This is a normal phoneme. The camera wants to show you where the picture is overblown. In these parts you can't see any details, because in JPG it will show it one colour. Most of the time this will be complete white.
When you are shooting in RAW (NEF in your Nikon) most of the time you still get detail, when you work in one of the RAW editors, like Photoshop, DxO and other picture edtors.

THE LCD DISPLAY OF MY CAMERA IS NOT WORKING. AS WELL AS THE FLASH


There are two problems here. The Rebel XT flash has an issue of not popping up when the button is pressed. See this page for some discussion and suggestions:
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=203699

Is the camera otherwise powering up and taking pictures and downloading them? Make sure it is not a battery problem

The display not showing up? If this only occurs in the shooting mode, press the DISP button . Another reason the display shuts down is when you look through the viewfinder- a sensor knows your cheek is next to the screen and shuts off the display. If anything blocks the sensor (located under the viewfinder, the display shuts off.

If the problem also occurs when you are trying to view the pictures (when you press the button with the little triangle) it is more serious and shows there is something wrong with the hardware of the LCD display. In that case consult Canon support.

Olympus Stylus 1030 SW display not working after being in water


I just had a similar problem. I am not sure how it was fixed, but it works again - at least for now.

I had the camera on and was taking pictures when the screen went dark. Same as you describe, it takes pictures, flash works, LED, works, everything but the display. I plugged it into my computer with the USB adapter to see if I can salvage what is on the card and the diplay lights up. Tried several variations, but when the cable is connected to the computer (didn't have to be connected to the computer) the screen worked. Unplug, no display. I spun the settings button a couple of times. I accidentally took a couple of short videos and pictures that I deleted. I unplugged the camera and powered down again (tried that before). Power up and the screen is fine.

Again I have no idea what fixed it or why the display worked with the cable plugged in. It might have been related to the videos or some setting that I had slipped into (thought the display button never worked or changed anything).

Hopefully something in there helps or someone can explain what I did.

Nikon D50 Flashes Err and clicks


hi..
This screen shows areas of the photo that are overexposed slightly.
It flashes them to help you.
You get to this screen by pressing the up or down arrows when displaying the pictures you have taken.

To change it just press the up arrow when the camera is showing the screen until you get a display without flashing.

Once you have done this the display will be steady.
If you get any other screen in future you may have accidently pressed the arrow again.
Just cycle thru the displays to get back to steady.

thank u
rate me!!

Canon sd900 will only take pictures that don't require a flash


Press the "DISP" button. Button on the top right of the bigger circle control button.

You can turn off the display if you want to conserve battery and use the viewfinder. So you probably accidentally turned it off. You can use that button to turn on/off the LCD display or change between two brightness settings on the LCD.

Hope that fixes your problem.

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)
