Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera ?

Canon A70 LCD screen has gone blank. use to be able to tap it and it would work. Now its just black. What would it cost to fix it?


Answers :

Do the pictures that you take with it also turn out black? If so, this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check this link for more info.

Does it seem like the camera is off alltogether or just no screen? If it's off, it maybe the battery contacts, if there is just no screen and the pictures take are also black, it's the ccd, if the pictures are ok, but no display - most likely the lcd screen.

The camera was working fine. I imported the pictures to Picassa succesfully and turned the camera off. I then went to take new pictures and all I get is a black LCD screen and when I load into Picassa the pictures are all black. The camera seems to work well, zoom, flash menu all seem normal except there is no picture. Can it be fixed and would it be cost effective?


The CCD is bad or the Iris is shut stuck. If it's the Iris just stuck, it might just have moisture - leave the camera in a dry place for a day. If it's the CCD - pretty much "kiss-it-good-bye". To replace the CCD is expensive - get a new camera. ... Digital Cameras

I own an Olympus Evolt E-500. Unfortunately, it was dropped and landed on the corner of the case near the battery door. The camera turns on, lcd screen, flash, and shutter seem to work, BUT pictures are black. Difficult to view anything thru viewfinder. Camera store told me they didn't know what was wrong, but would cost me at least $270 to repair. 1) does anyone know what is wrong, 2) can I fix it myself?

For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a Kodak EasyShare M753 7 mp 3x optical zoom. I have the use of only hand and I dropped the camera on my desk(about 1-2 feet). One side of the lens jammed and would not release and would not take pictures. I kept fooling with it and the black bars in the lens came out. I would think it needs a new lens. Could you tell me how I would go about getting it fixed and the approximate time and cost would this involve.

I read your solution to the Sony DSC-T1 black screen problem, but the link you provided did not work, even when I copied it into my browser. I know from all the other posts on the website that I have the identical problem and would love to get it fixed, but I found no reference to "free repair" anywhere on the Sony website. What am I doing wrong? I am in the process of trying the phone support now, but I have no reason to expect that to work any better. I will let you know if I am successful. Th

Hi, my camera may have been knocked as I have a black splurge like a spider with a black strands on the bottom left of the monitor. There are no cracks on the screen. I am wondering if this will spread. If it doesn't and I'm careful I shall leave it, but if it should become a problem, I am considering getting it repaired so long as it doesn't cost too much. Are you able to tell me what the problem is and how it may have been caused? Plus, whether it is easy to fix? Many thanks

I have a sony DSC-W150 and the camera turns on but it says "for use with compatible battery only" and then turns off. I talked to a sony representative and they told me to take the battery out and then hold the power butter for 30 seconds but that didn't work. They told me that it is probably the firmware and said it would cost over 200.00 dollars to get it fixed is there any way I can fix this myself? What else can be the problem?


I just bought a Canon Camcorder that has some sort of code that won't let it charge up while in the camera and plug in to the house outlet, unless it is made by Canon. Maybe Sony is doing the same thing. A new Sony battery goes for $40 to $50. Cheape ... Digital Cameras

When I turn on my Canon PowerShot S2 IS camera and set it to shoot mode, the screen is black. A while back, I was able to get the screen to show by toggling with the camera and constantly turning it on and off. Now, however, it is completely black and will refuse to work.

When turned on lense would only retract partially and then turn off. took it apart. I have it to where the camera will now go on, am able to take a photo (all normal) except I cannot get the lense to "attach" to the camera properly. Cylindrical lense. three screws protruding from it. not sure if the lense mounts on a black ring on the front or under the ring. The "in out" mechanism works but it will not grab the lense (cover?) to move out then retract. Seems to need to attach under the ring but
