Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera ?

Dead LCD - is there a fix?

\015 I was formatting my CF card when the camera spontaneously shut down. When I turned it on I had no LCD. I was able to remove the CF card & format it in a PC card reader. But the A75 has no display & I can find no way to restore it. I tried the factory reset by holding down menu button, arrowing over to "OK" (again, doing this all blind with no LCD) and it seems to work because all the default sounds are back. It seems to shoot ok. Everything seems to work but the display - which makes it near impossible to access any menu functions.HELLLP! Did the firmware get fried when it shutdown during CF format? If so, is there any way to hard-reset it?Any advice is fraintically welcomed. (aside from "get a new camera"). The 3.5MP imager suits me fine. The 4AA batts give it a long life & I have a huge collection of CF cards I'm not ready to scrap.\015

Answers :

Understand how you feel, I love my A75 too. But forgive me if this seems obvious, but did you try pressing the DISP button on the back of the camera with the camera turned on? If so, next have you tried downloading your pictures to view them on your computer? Are they also black like your screen? If so, the problem may be a defective CCD imager. Canon should then fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:\015\012

About a year ago my camera LCD started turning black. Then the camera died. I just bought a battery and it is still dead. Any idea what the problem could be and the cost to fix it?


Well you said the LCD was turning black. So my guess is that its not the battery. If the LCD is black maybe the image/s got imprinted on the camera and broke it. Send it to your local Canon store and ask if they can take a look at it. I c ... Canon PowerShot G3 Digital Camera

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.


Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera

Hi.. My Olympus Stylus 710 camera is one year old and I have been having problems with it recently. Basically the camera is unusable right now. When i press the power, the lens open halfway, the picture on the LCD is blurry and one second after the lens close and an error appears of the screen saying "D: 5f08 5f0e 5f08 5e02".
