I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.

Ditch it- They will want $100 just to tell you to get a new one. ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have a cannon powershot a85, and I clicked on the site you recommended and learned that it is listed for a free repair if your lcd screen goes black. My camera only recently did this, except i have dropped it before, years ago, but i did not have that problem then. Do you know if they'll still fix it for free, or do you think they'll attribute the blank screen to the slight dent on the camera?

If the drop years ago caused no problem in all this time, it therefore did not contribute to your lcd problem. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera

My Sony 7.2 Cybershot camera recently ran out of battery, so I charged it. Once it was done charging, I put the battery back in. The screen showed up asking me to insert the current date and time, so I did so. Next, the zoom lense went out and in, out and in, and out and in while the screen said "Access". Next, it told me to turn the camera off and on again. Nothing happens when I do so, and I've done it about 10 times to no avail. Is this a fixable problem?
