Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
I turned my digital camera on and the LCD screen is showing the image upside down and backwards.
The auto rotate sensor is going bad. Look in your camera's menus for a selection to turn autorotate off. Actually going inside the camera and fixing the sensor is possible for those with some electronics background, but really not worth the risk of further damaging your camera. This feature is not necessary as most image processing software has this same feature if needed.

No image on LCD screen, only irregular lines of varied coloring. When picture is snapped, it is of these lines--no image. Help. Details: I turned the camera to shooting mode but it does not display the image of what I want to shoot, but just a series of horizontal lines. If I take the shot, it shows the lines which were displayed on the LCD screen. If switched to playback mode, previously shot images show up fine. I checked the batteries; they were fine. I replaced them anyway, to no avai

BROKEN LCD Today, I had my camera in my camera bag. Somehow, the screen got busted. I took out my camera to take a picture and the entire full screen view is cracked. The camera turned on and off just fine; it seems that only the screen was damaged. No images are shown when I attempt to look at the pictures I took and when I try to take a picture, I cannot see anything on the screen. Is the screen repairable or is it best to purchase a new digital camera?

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?
Check the SD card, they have sliders on them which lets you "lock" the card so nothing can be put on or taken off of it. Make sure that is off. Then go through the menu on the camera and try to format the card again. If the card is bad it should give ... Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom
Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!
Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
