What happened to my digital camera

One day when I turned on my digital camera it does not really worked as it should. It was running and everything but the display on the camera is upside down, and mirror. Has anyone any idea of what has happened? Can you restore it on your own or must submit that to a repairer?

Re: What happened to my digital camera

Yes.. this with digital cameras is a difficult nut to crack if you happen to have pressed a button or so. Last time I used my camera so I just happened to receive a lot of different buttons and the camera is not quite as it should yet. My experience is that you should not start pressing a bunch of buttons if you do not know what it is doing, it's only making matters worse. Do you know someone who is good at technical things, so ask the person for help.
But up and down, mirror? It sounds as if your camera has suffered far more than what I did.
Look in the menu if it is something that can give you a hint about what has happened.

Good luck!

if you know well about the settings in that camera, so it can be settings which is resolved in camera. Best probably safe just to keep it, and get repaired if you have no expert friend who can fix cameras.

And good luck.

Some models change menu / screen when turning on the camera; has also took a card that you want to look at the display, so the image is to adjust to how you hold the camera.

Re: What happened to my digital camera

Is everything a mirror image or upside down? Or just pictures?
What is the camera, brand / model?
It is easier to help if you come with more info.

Images are normal. But when I'm going to get the card, it is upside down and mirror image. It is all I live with but are quite disturbing.
It is an "Advent" model adv1172e 7.0 mega pixel.

I unfortunately do not know what the problem might be but it sounds as a setting. But if no one else has used the camera and you have not done anything, it seems strange.
Try to reset the camera to the factory setting, if possible.
