Backlight burns brightly on DMC ZS 18

Hi there. I have a DMC ZS18. In the iA mode there is an indication on the LCD that thr "backlight" is in operation. I don't know how it was activated and how to remove it tried everything but it stays there. This results in dark images when there is strong light in the background. In this situation the flash is immobilized. What to do?

SOURCE: My LCD screen went dark

It sounds like somehow the light in the LCD has shorted out. You probably need the LCD screen. If you need some parts you may want to contact a guy in South Carolina who has lots of used parts for all the Panasonic Cameras at reasonable prices. I bought a used LCD from him and it works like new. I think his email is gerald.ray@aa-ark.com

The display is dim and hard to see.


First, make sure that your brightness is turned up. You can access this from the menu by selecting "Display" then adjusting the display between 50% & 100%.

If the brightness is at 100% and the display is still dim, this is an indication that there is a problem with the backlight that lights up the LCD display from behind.

The backlight is integrated into the LCD display, so the entire display needs to be replaced. Was the unit dropped? If so, perhaps the LCD flex cable pulled out of the connector, slightly from one side, disconnecting the backlight. We strongly suggest that you don't try to repair the unit yourself. Additional damage can occur.

Backlight spoilt for dsc t90


When the display is to dark or to light, the manual says:
Adjust the brightness of the backlight (page 18).
On page 18 it says:
This sets the brightness of the LCD screen. When viewing images in bright outside light if [Brightness] is set to [Normal], reset to [Bright]. However, the battery power may decrease faster under such condition.
You also can press the button with the > logo, to change between view pictures and record.

The LCD screen on my Gateway M-6317 is dim. How


Press and hold the 'FN' key and tap the key that has the picture of a sun and an up arrow (or some other similar picture that dictates brightness - there should be two different keys that affect brightness one to increase and the other to decrease). Once you have the brightness set to your liking quit tapping the 'brightness' key and release the 'fn' key

Camera turns on fine. I could view picture and all. Just that when I switch to camera mode a video screen is blacked out. Why is that?


Your have a "Display" button that toggles thru different display modes .. one of the modes turns off the LCD backlight .. that useful if you are in bright light and dont need the backlight .. you have a very nice "transflective" display that works great in bright light without the backlight ... you can get more shots with the backlight turned off on each battery charge .(about 25% more) .

so each time you operate the display mode button you will get a different display .. one shows a hystogram .. one turns off the backlight and one puts the camera in a normal mode ..

if everything is working right then even with the backlight turned off you should be able to go outside or any brightly lighted area and see the picture on the screen ..

No backlight


A couple things to try:

1st check the backlight settings

Turn on Backlighting and Control Brightness To use your device in dark environments, enable the automatic backlighting feature:
  1. From the Jump screen, press MENU t02003-15.gif then select Settings > Battery & Display.

  2. In the second group box, select the Turn on backlight when using device check box.

  3. Highlight, then select the Brightness slider to open it for editing. Roll the TRACKBALL right to increase brightness; roll the TRACKBALL left to decrease brightness. After you've made the adjustment, press the TRACKBALL to exit edit mode. t02007-55.jpg

  4. Select the length of time you want backlighting to stay on from the Turn off after pop-up menu.

  5. To use the device's light meter while the backlight is on, select the Use ambient light sensor check box.

  6. Press JUMP t02003-14.gif to return to the Jump screen and save your setting.
Now, when you press any button or key, or flip open the screen, backlighting will turn on for the set amount of time. Note that as long as you press a key or button before the set time elapses, the backlight will stay on.
Tips:
  • Even if you have not selected automatic backlighting, you can turn on backlighting at any time by pressing MENU t02003-15.gif + JUMP t02003-14.gif . The backlight will remain on for the time specified in the Backlight Turn off after pop-up menu.

  • When in key guard mode, you can turn on the backlight by pressing the RIGHT SHOULDER t02003-66.gif button.
If it still does not work, then you can try resetting the flex cable to the lcd.

Reseat the SidekickFlex cable

If that doesn't fix it then a new lcd assy will take care of the issue. they run about 45 dollars on ebay.
