Flyer Monitor Blacked Out
Posted 01 February 2011 - 11:48 AM
It's an SD Monitor.
There's no light whatsoever. Even the blue screen when is on "NO SIGNAL DETECTED" is off. It's gone black!
The green power light indicator is on but the screen is black.
I'm using 88w new Swit Batteries,
Any clues on this?

Remove the cable from the camera. Is the camera monitor still black? If so, you've exited Live View mode. The camera automatically does it when idle. Return to that mode and you should be good to go.
I've removed the video cable from the camera= Still Black.
Removed the battery from the steadicam and pluged it again = Still Black
Now I've returned the camera to the client already.
You're telling me it's something from the Canon 5d?

Sounds like the backlight died, bummer! Pretty sure a replacement monitor is the way to go, but you can talk to tiffen about what it would take to replace the backlight.
Any chance it was caused by an overpower from the 88w Swit Battery?

Edmond, I don't know if the backlight dying could be caused by being overpowered, but so long as those batteries aren't more than 14v there should be no power issues.
