Please upload pictures using attachment function when ask for help on the repair
 
If you do that it will help us a lot, it is not easy trying to troubleshooting without having the units or the boards in front of us to look at, it is the least you can do for us that are trying to help.
Also look at the pictures you take, if you cannot see the object clearly, we cannot see it clearly either. I have to draw up the diagram based on your pictures when we do not have the service manuals for what we are trying to fix.
I am getting tire of asking for pictures so I skip those posts without pictures.

Here is a link to our FAQ explaining how to upload pictures incase you need it: http://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1868

I second and third that !:)
Cant understand why when people can see what we keep asking for so few
bother to put together a decent request for help.
Perhaps we need to have some minimum requirements on a sticky we can just
post as a link in reply to an inadequate request.
I used to post this but gave up.


Welcome to the forum-
We can help a lot more if you please post good clear pictures of the whole chassis, and then pictures of each board, front and back (in the same orientation) and close up of connectors, (max resolution 2000x2000 and 2MB) using the manage attachments button, which is found by clicking "go advanced" under quick reply.

Please do not post inline and offsite as they slow down the loading of pages.

Examples of what is needed

It will be useful if you can say what the supposed fault was and a bit about yourself - skills tools etc.

Hmm, no animated gif for :standing-on-chair-clapping:

Although I no longer participate in certain sub-sections of these forums, sometimes I lurk and despite providing numerous well written easy-to-understand examples, tips, guides, it still amazes me that people asking for free help to solve their problems still can't or won't do the simple basics.

I suggest putting this thread into your signature link as well.

All handheld shot with, my now 10+ year old and still going strong after 30K+ pictures, Canon A80.

Macro and sunlight are required.

Are you questioning what a sticky is or the idea of using one for this purpose?

I think it's an ok idea to set a sticky post devoted to how to ask for help here. Some people (especially newbies, no offense to newbies, it just takes time to learn how things work here) need it drummed into their heads so another drum probably couldn't hurt.

Not sure if your having me on :)

Well maybe stickie in US?

Sticky is just a thread that is always available at the top of a forum.

On the tv section there are 4 - you can apply to a mod to have any good
useful to all thread stuck ( pinned - hence the blue tack symbol) to the top of a forum.

On the Monitor thread is retiredcaps' 2 second to black guide.

so it is easy to refer people to it.

@ retiredcaps - my dittie above is mostly copied from yours. I was thinking the 2mb could be increased to 3mb as even cheaper cameras start off there.
and the jpg up;load is now said to be 4mb not that I have tried it.
