Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera ?

Display goes off when it is sunny


\015 My camera's display shuts off in bright reflected sunlight and I am unable to take a picture.. If I move it to more shaded area it comes on again but this is rather inconvenient if I want to take a pucture of my kids playing on the beach. Do I have something set wrong or is my camera faulty?\015

Answers :

Are you sure it's actually turning off? One of the complaints I read when reviewing the camera before purchase was that the display could be unviewable in bright light. It would be quite unexpected for the screen to actually go dark in bright light and miraculously come back on in the shade... The camera has a viewfinder and I bought it with one for just this type of circumstance.

Mirror locked up at 125th or slower and infill flash does not flash. At faster speed it works fine. The display on top of camera goes virtually blank and battery display flahes a sif it battery was exhausted. If shutter release is pressed again then camera goes back to normal 'ready to sheet' mode.As flash is synced to 125th I suspect that the flash is the problem (or maybe it is just coincidence) I have tried cleaning, used lenses and put in a brand new battery. Any clues?

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

Piximodo Can't get the pixtures to display on this digital picture frame. I am using an external 32 Gig SD card with approx 2 Gig of pixtures on it. All pixtures are most pics are 1280 x 960 / 960 by 1280 with all the rest of the pics being less resolution. All pics are JPEG files. The frame will read the memory card and the files on the display but as soon as I select a picture with the enter button the display goes black. I left it alone for an hour thinking that maybe it just needed time

I am having a problem with my camera. It works in the sense that it turns on and takes pictures. However, the both the digital lcd display and normal finder display remain black, even after removing the lens cap. I let a friend borrow it a little while ago and I suspect they may have changed some settings, but I'm not sure what to look for to fix it. When it takes pictures, they come out looking very distorted and strange. But, it does take pictures, the flash goes off and a picture records. c

My LCD goes partially black when I turn the camera on and shows a diagonal display of the photo from the upper left hand to lower right hand corners. The amount not black is not sufficient to take photos. I can make the LCD give a full display if I "jiggle" the photo settings devise from view to photo. I have tried this about thirty times and it always restores the LCD. I asked Canon Service Tech Support if the problem merited repair. Of course they said yes, but the flat rate they charge

My camera was working fine and then it gently rolled on to the rug and then it never worked right since. I got the code in the corner of the display E18 and I cannot do a darn thing with the camera now. Should I just chuck it ? ??? Its a cannon power shot A400. (When I turn it on the display light comes on and it beeps numberous times and then the E18 signal comes on and then it goes away and the camera turns off. I do not even think the shutter opens up ) The batteries are charged so what now.

Olympus X-42 Camera - the screen has gone white (with a few thin green/purple vertical lines). When I switch on the camera the screen is white, there is no picture or menu displayed. I have checked by plugging it into the tv, and it takes pictures and goes into menus fine - it just doesn't display anything on camera screen. I have only had the camera for a week, and have not stored it anywhere humid. Is there anything I can do to fix, or do I just have to take it to get repaired?

I have looked through the manual and cannot find anything resembling this message. It turns on for a few seconds and then the screen goes black and displays the E24 message. I was taking photos during a recent wedding I attended and then it cut out suddenly and displayed the E24 and since then will not turn on.
