Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Cannon sd750 no image on display and pics blank but image on slideshow ok.


Answers :

Hello Reinaldo.

Just to make sure I understand. All the photo's you take are blank but photo's which are already on the camera display fine?

I am 99% sure that the CCD (the chip that physically captures light and creates the digital image) has broken.

If this is the case , a repair would cost approximately $80-$120. This is the most common problem for a camera that takes blank images but where the menu display functions and old photo's display normally.

Check to see if the new images are downloaded correctly and if the video function works normally. If this does not work, it supports the idea that the chip has gone.

I would take it in to a repair center for an evaluation , but would not have it repaired if the CCD has to be replaced as a new or refurbished camera would cost only slightly more.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Stephan

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!

When I turn my 550 PowerShot on, I get a blank screen (black for the most part with white camera symbology around the screen, such as the flash symbol, etc). The screen works, as I can click a picture and see the photo momentarily. I can also view my saved pics. When I select the film mode, the screen looks normal.......meaning it displays a color image of what is in the lens. Have I inadvertently selected a mode which is causing this phenomenon?

I own a canon s2 is power shot. Symptoms began with the digital zoom beeping and the screen going blank when invoked to draw an image closer. After a periood of time of avoiding the zoom, the camera lense stuck inside and gave an e18 message when beeping.
