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.
Ditch it- They will want $100 just to tell you to get a new one. ... Canon Digital Cameras

Camera acts like it is taking a picture,flash occurs, but you then cannot display the image on the LCD monitor.(all black) When trying to download the image from the CF card, it is just a samll dot, no image is there. We have had camera for several years, no longer under warranty.

Put new batteries in a PowerShot A75 after not using for a year or two. Do not get a picture on the lcd screen, just a grey picture or black with white horizontal bar botches and the picture the camera takes looks the same as on the lcd screen.

I have a cannon powershot a85, and I clicked on the site you recommended and learned that it is listed for a free repair if your lcd screen goes black. My camera only recently did this, except i have dropped it before, years ago, but i did not have that problem then. Do you know if they'll still fix it for free, or do you think they'll attribute the blank screen to the slight dent on the camera?
If the drop years ago caused no problem in all this time, it therefore did not contribute to your lcd problem. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
A85 camera LCD shows up with pink and black lines every time a picture is taken. LCD screen displays the camera icons on LCD screen but will not take anymore photo's. Lens used to view picture status prior to photo shot but now, it consistently shows up in black. When a picture is shot, the screen then turns pink and black on the LCD screen.
