Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera ?

Digital Display We have owned a Canon Powershot A70 for about 3 years now and have taken many great photos with it. However, the display has failed several times and has been repaired by Canon who admits that their displays were made by another manufacturer. Well, the display is gone again! Can I replace the display?


Answers :

X-tian--Canon will replace the CCD sensor for free if that's really the problem (see ), but in that case why would Donzoni say Canon had replaced the *display*? Unless he's confusing them, of course.\015\012\015\012Donzoni--The fact that you say Canon has repaired your display for you leads me to think you're not a fanatical do-it-yourselfer, which is probably a good idea in this case. Disassembling an A70 is a very tricky job, and putting it back together so it works is even trickier (aiyy, those tiny springs!). Not to mention that a new replacement LCD display from Canon would probably cost more than a whole used A70 in good working condition (about $50 on eBay). If Canon won't cover your A70 under the warranty, and it's already failed several times, it might be time to look for a "new" one on eBay or upgrade--I'm very happy with our new A540, though we still use our A70 as a backup.
If you can disassembly the camera and put it back again why not...but the problem is the ccd image sensor if you can buy it in the canon service center...that sensor is located at the center of the lens with a glass,square shape and have many pins..

Hi, My Canon Ixux 900Ti - started to display "strange colours**" when taking pictures.

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

The batteries would last for ages between charges, and with a new baby we took lots of photos. Then the batteries started playing up.

My canon 20d stopped taking photos for no aparant reason. Kept getting error 99 and when I re insert the battery it starts clicking on it's own whether turned on or not.
