I have a canon powershot sd1100 IS and bought it on ebay back in the fall. I havent had any problems and it was in great condition. One night I went to erase some pictures before going out- the camera was fine. About an hour later, I took the camera out of my purse and when I turned it on I saw the screen was white whether I went to take a picture or view one. I can still take pictures and load them on my computer but I can't see what I'm taking because of the white. Is there a way to fix this?

Tonight while turning on my camera the screen is all white with some black lines through it.. and a leaf looking thing which is black. I see NO PICTURE at all. But when i take pictures and upload them to the computer the pics still work. But when i take the actual pictures or try to view any all i have is the white screen what can i do to fix this?

This sounds like a cracked screen.. a leaf you say? is the leaf a graphic, perhaps an icon.. is it centered on the screen at all?hmm.... I would take it to a certified repair center to see if they can replace the LCD panel. So ... Digital Cameras

I am having a problem with my camera. It works in the sense that it turns on and takes pictures. However, the both the digital lcd display and normal finder display remain black, even after removing the lens cap. I let a friend borrow it a little while ago and I suspect they may have changed some settings, but I'm not sure what to look for to fix it. When it takes pictures, they come out looking very distorted and strange. But, it does take pictures, the flash goes off and a picture records. c

I have a 4-5 year-old Canon Sureshot 3.2 MP (PC1037?)digital camera that has been extremely reliable. I use it for fishing trips primarily now. The viewing screen is now black and I am unable to take new pictures, other than black pictures. The menu still works and the playback of prior pictures still works. Question is whether to toss the camera or do you have a quick and inexpensive fix for this second or third camera in my collection. Thanks.

Negative effect. I've had my Canon Powershot S3 1S for over a year now. The other day I was taking pictures and it was working fine. I turn it off and set it down. I come back later, turn it on again and the screen shows has white lines that keep flicking over it. I turn it off and take the batteries out. Later I put the batteries back in, turn it on, and find that it is in negative effect. I'm pretty sure that my camera can't do this naturally and I've tried everything to see if I could get it

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

My camera won't turn on but it'll let me view all my pictures just fine. I think their might be a problem with the shutter because it sticks out a bit. When I try to turn my camera on it'll show the FujiFilm Welcome Screen and then just go to a black screen. If there is anyone who knows how to fix this without taking it to get fixed professionally please tell me, i would be very grateful of that! If not, and you know where they can fix it (other then sending it back to the company) please inform

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!

The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

I have a mesasge that says 'write protect' which stops me from taking any pictures. I can view photo's already taken, but can't delete any. I'm not sure how or why (could of been the kids...) this message started appearing. I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in, looking for an 'unlock' kind of tab, but can't see one. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Many thanks.

Blurry lenses Same problem exactly. I'm not sure what happened (maybe sand in the camera?) The camera now turns off to a black screen, If I push the botton to see ast pictures, the screen works again and lets me see through them. But If I go back to "take picture mode", the image they give me is all blurry and if I try to use the zoom, the camera turns off.

I recently tried to take some pictures with my powershot a300 and was only getting black pictures. I have used it for several pictures about 3 months before that and the camera has been stored in a drwer between times. I checked to make sure the shutter was open.
