Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Everything works on my camera, but the screen is black all the time...Like the lcd has gone out or something...

Answers :

Most likely you have a problem with the LCD display. The displays are very susceptible to breaking if the camera has been dropped. The backlight could be defective too. I have replaced many of these displays in cameras. try to get an estimate to have the display replaced. You'll probably find that the estimate will be fairly high. The displays are not too hard to replace. You might try contacting the parts department at Canon and see if you can purchase the LCD display and repair the unit yourself. I wrote and posted an article on this site on how to replace the displays in Kodak cameras. The prodedure will be fairly similar on most any type of digital camera.

I have (2) DGS-200 Moultrie cameras that the LCD display has gone out. Replaced (1) with the LCD display from a Moultrie 100. Worked great but I still have two cameras that can't be programed without seeing on LCD. Is there anywhere to purchase these LCD screens or purchase non-working Moultrie cameras?

Sony DSC-F717 I have a Sony DSC-F717 camera which has worked well(except for the incredibly slow record time in TIFF) until now. The camera stays dark as if the shutter is stuck. I can turn the camera on, see the readings(battery, memory space etc.), view images previously recorded on the memory stick ? but not see anything through the lens, either on LCD or through the Finder.

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen. Everything else works fine in the monitor, but it is as if the lens where covered with the cap. But it´s not, and acutally all the other modes work fine. Only in the manual mode the image doesnt show, and the pictures also appear completely black. The menu shows sometimes something as if the exposure were less than -2, but even though i change the values for everything hig

I have a canon rebel xti with an 18 to 55 lens .. I recently bought an external flash to sit in the hot shoe .. now when I removed the flash from the hot shoe .. the cameras own flash will not pop up and work... I can manually pop the flash but it still will not work..  I thought that when I bought the flash at the camera store the sales person turned off something on the camera for the new flash to work.. is there something I need to change in the menus to get the cameras own flash to work.....

I had the same problem. \015\012Look closely at the hotshoe. Inside it, way over to the side, under one of the tabs on the side, is a tiny metal strip.

Hi, I have a Canon Power Shot S2 IS 5.0 megapixels that was working fine until one day I changed the memory card from 512MB to a 1GB. Now every time I turn the camera on and try to take a picture, a beeping sound and a legend on the LCD screen that reads: Memory card error. It's like something locked the shutter mechanism.

It seems to me that Nikon Point & Shoot cameras, or at least the last 2 that I have bought, have a usable life span of approx 4 or so years before the LCD's decide not to work in turn, makes the camera non usable. I have a 5700, 3.5 years old before it stopped working & a S4, which the LCD also quit working and it is 4 years old, I think my next point & shoot will be a Canon to go along with it's big brother that I bought this year, 50D Does anyone have a solution to this Nikon problem?

I have a Canon Powershot S30 with a bad LCD. Otherwise working. I also have one with a working LCD, but the lens will not extend. I'd like to make one out of two. Is there a manual with exploded views available so I can do it myself or is that unrealistic. I have several cameras, so I suspect that a professional repair would cost more than the camera is worth. Like most electronic relics, it seems to be cheaper to replace than repair.
