Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I replaced my LCD Screen on my Canon SD450. The camera would start up, but the screen wouldn't show properly, now the camera won't power up at all. The power cable for the screen is bent from trying to get the connector seated properly.


Answers :

Might have broken/shorted a trace in the ribbon cable that supplies the LCD with data, use a continuity tester on all traces to see if you have an open or short. Use the alligator clips of a multimeter to grab 2 sewing pins to use as probes as the traces are very small.
