Black LCD When I took pictures yesterday, each picture looked like it had a white fuzzy covering over it. Now when I turn the camera on the lcd stays black. But when I switch the button from camera to video it works. I also can get the previously taken pictures to show up. I have charged and changed a couple of pairs of batteries.


As Philipp mentions, sounds like a defective CCD imager. Canon should fix this for free, including free shipping both ways. For others experiencing this problem, please check the following two links for more info:\015\012http://camerarepair.blo ... Canon PowerShot A300 Digital Camera

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder, all i get is a completely black photograph. Occasionally, i see a glitter or two on the screen which is black and white (kind of like an unsynced TV image), but then it disappears pretty quickly

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off. Thanks, Steve

I am thing about taking the camera completely apart ( filming it, so I can always look back if I forget a step ) and checking all wires, also noticed something that looks like a small battery on the white back plate after removing the LCD screen could this be part of the problem? Thanks to anyone in advance!

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.

Nchatta Hello, My Canon s45 was working perfectly until it was dropped from a very very small heigh in a soft leather case with protection. The camera works in the sense that it can read and display the images from the SD card perfectly, the lense extends but you cannot see anything on the LCD when wanting to take a picture bar a white box in the middle that usually turns green once focussed (but now doesn't.) The screen is just black. The shutter clicks, takes the picture, but just a black LCD

Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera. I don't know how to fix the problem, but I definitely would like it fixed. I bought the camera in July, if that helps.
