Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera ?

Digital viewfinder not working

\015 Camera was working fine yesterday. Took several pix. Then turned it on and digital viewfinder would not come on. Turned power on and off a couple times. Did get an image once, but the colors were weird (all purple and green). Then it stopped completely. Tried a few more times and viewfinder lit up but no image. Yes, I did try the display button, which changed it from lit up to black. Now it doesn't even light up. However, even while having these issues, I tried taking a few shots. Downloaded them and they came out just fine. So it doesn't seem to be the camera as a whole or the lens/shutter - just the viewfinder. ??\015

Answers :

Sounds like a loose or poor connection of the screen's flex cables, a very common problem for your model camera. The A630's vari-angle screen is a great option for a camera, but with this moveable screen, the screens data and power cables can and do wiggle loose. It is actually relatively easy to fix by just reseating these cables, but will require opening the back face of the screen of your camera. Please see this other person who had a similar problem.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.

Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Camera FX35 was working fine. In middle of taking pix in Oxford, screen suddenly refused to come back on, although optical viewfinder works and on screen viewing of taken shots works OK.
