LCD screen is blank, but still responds to touch ¶
When I turn the power on the LCD screen does not show anything, but still lights up at my touch.
Damaged Flex Cable ¶
If you touch the LCD screen and it responds but does not show what you are filming, then the flex cable that runs from the main board to the LCD screen may be damaged. To fix this you can replace the flex cable and this should solve the issue.
LCD screen is blank, but does NOT respond to touch ¶
When I turn the power on, the LCD screen does not show anything and does not respond to my touch.
Damaged or Malfunctioning LCD Screen ¶
If you turn the camera on and the screen is completely dark and unresponsive this is a symptom of a failed LCD. If it is the screen the only thing to do is replace it.
Malfunctioning Flex Cable ¶
If turning the camera on presents only a dark and unresponsive scree then the flex cable that runs from the main board to the LCD screen may be damaged. This is a fairly easy replaceable part of the camera.
LCD screen is displaying a distorted image ¶
The image displayed on the screen of my camera doesn't look right.
Failing CCD Image Sensor ¶
If the LCD screen on your camera is showing lines and/or a distorted image this could be a failing CCD image sensor and it will need to be replaced.
Moisture condensation error ¶
The words "moisture condensation error" are present when I look through the viewfinder
Residual Moisture Within the Camera ¶
If this error appears it means there is some moisture within the camera. To solve this problem let the camera dry while turned off for no less than one hour. This can be caused by abrupt temperature changes, so to prevent this from happening you can place the camera in a sealed plastic bag before going from a cold place to warm place.
