Having problems with your Canon Powershot A1000IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom ?

I am unable to see what I am taking a picture of.

\015 The view does not show through the view screen until after the photo is snapped. The only setting that you can see anything is when it is set on the video mode. Once the the picture is snapped the picture will show. \015

Answers :

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.
