Polerized Filter I bought a filter thinking it would enhance my pictures bt the LCD screen washed out in the bright sun so I can't see how far to turn the filter. Any suggestions on how to use the filter properly on a Canon G3? Help.

I think you should solve the 'washed out' LCD screen issue. Here's a link to an accessory which might help. http://hometown.aol.com/ESC2000/Sunshield.htm I've tested it on my Olympus E10 LCD screen, (although I don't use it), and I found it very satifactory. Hope this helps.

The picture frame still scrolls pictures but the pictures are very dark and unable to be seen well. Is the frame ruined?

Hi, Don't put screen in direct sun light or bright light. Bright lights will destroy LCD screen. The LCD screen has some adjustments on back. You might be able to readjust picture brightness.
Good luck.

I can't get the filter back in. It won't turn into a locking position.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France, Sun afternoon 14:41

I suspect that there must be something, possibly limescale, around the thread not allowing you to turn it OR the filter is not far enough into its recess. The filter might be restricted in movement by something further inside the pipe stuck between the filter and the drain pump motor.
I would advise looking closely into where the filter goes- with some decent lighting- to check ;-0)

Good luck,

John C

No picture on Phillips 20in TV

Your previous adaptor may have been damaged by the failure of an internal component in the set.
Look at your LCD screen from a shallow angle to see if you can spot any 'ghostly' images on the screen when it is turned on and has audio present. If you can, then either the fluorescent backlight has failed or the circuit that produces its high voltage. I've yet to see a modern set that even allows the brightness to be turned down so far that no image is present.

Grainy photos in sunlight

Your ISO is probably set too high? to change iso press the fn (function) button and select the right option (with the right arrow) to go to the iso menu. Then use the up and down arrows to change the iso setting. I don't go higher then 400, and in the beach you could set it way down to 100.  Don't point the camera in the direction of the sun as this can wash out the photo. A filter would help somewhat.

Acer LCD Monitor AL2671W - screen too bright!

I had the same problem with my TV when I purchased it used. Select the input you are having troubles with and enter "Service Mode" by pressing and holding the "VOL - " button and "CHAN + " buttons on the TV, simultaneously until the screen flashes red one time.

At this point you will be in service mode. Pressing the "MENU" button will open a service menu, which is different from the typical user menu. From the service menu you can further adjust your image settings until you have a decent picture.

Initially my VGA input looked terribly bright and washed out. Now it looks incredible!

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?

If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.

FD-88, viewing LCD in daylight, too bright

You're not doing anything wrong. Sometimes it's just hard to see to LCD. You could try turning down the brightness, or turning off the backlight, but that doesn't work very well either. There are sun shields for sale. I have a FD-88 also, And so far I've been able to see the screen ok in sunlight. But It's winter in Minnesota so the sun is low in the sky, and I can normally shade the screen with my body. Hope this helps.
