Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Stupidly but accidentally left my Canon PowerShot SD800IS outside on table and it rained!!! I can't see anything through the screen! Stick seems OK. Battery is functioning. What can be done. Thanks.


Answers :

Well you can try not to turn it on and let it dry out in a DRY room

But if you turn it on after it was still wet or it was not fully dried ...Then

you have to bring it to a camera repair shop I would call around but

make sure that you do not tell them it was wet because it they may tell you that

there is more problems then just the LCD screen.... So if the board is wet and

there was power turn on there will be clear signs of the residue left from the rain...



You can also call Canon to see if they no of any Camera Shops in your area that will Repair 

it or Maybe give you a trade in credit towards a used or new camera,





Thank You

Brand-new Canon Powershot SX120 IS and have put in the batteries and card included in the pack. All seems to be working normally - EXCEPT the screen is continually dark and not showing anything the camera is pointing at. Only the standard icons appear on the screen. The flash seems to be working correctly.

When I turn my camera on, the LCD screen is displaying an odd picture. It looks like a picture of a small hole with cracking around it. There are a few vertical lines down the center of the entire screen & at the bottom of the screen, there is a tiny cursor that is flashing. I took a few random shots even though I couldn't see anything on the screen & when I checked my card, the pictures of the objects I took were there. I took out the battery, recharged it.

White Screen: I turned on my camera shortly after replacing the batteries, but when I looked at my screen, it was completely white. I turned it off, then turned it on again, and the same thing happened. Later, I tried to see if it'll work after I connected it to my computer, but the screen was still white. The camera has been dropped a couple of times, but it wasn't anything severe - just a couple of centimeters from the ground, and I'm pretty sure the screen isn't cracked (I didn't see an

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?

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when the camera is powered on but I cannot see anything through the view finder or on the screen and no image is captured when a pic is taken. I changed the batteries and it made no difference.


I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are ... Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

White screen Hello, I have a Fuji S5000 Digital Camera that has never caused me any problems. I was using both the movie and photo functions this afternoon when, all of a sudden, the EVF/LCD screen turned white. I have removed the batteries, turned the camera on and off and have reviewed the troubleshooting information in my manual. At this point, when the camera is turned on, all I see is a white screen.

My Nikon coolpix S10 camera was dropped and now the screen only says "lens error".

Any helpful ideas would be apprecited. Thank you!
