Answers :

I took mine apart and found one of the flexible-connector solder joints had broken. I remelted the existing solder with a 15-watt pencil soldering iron (and a magnifier) and that fixed by backlight problem.

Very simple fix. Open the covering on the lcd screen and also remove covering that is between the camera and screen. There is a wire that goes from the lcd screen to the camera. It came out from all the twisting of screen when opening and closing. Carefully put that back in. Google keywords like "lcd g5 fix" etc. for more detailed description.

The LCD Monitor of my Canon PowerShot A95 shows purple, white, and black horizontal lines instead of a clear image of what is in the Viewfinder. Pictures taken while showing up this way on the LCD Monitor turn out with the same fuzzy stripes. Light lines show up in the well-lit areas of the scene and dark lines show up where the scene is dark. The problem was intermittent for months but now cannot be corrected by powering off. Thanks, Steve

A week ago I purchased a Canon Ixus 970 digital camera. When using in dark conditions yesterday, I noticed two bright blue dots on the LCD screen. I've switched the camara off and on again and have taken the battery out and replaced it again, but they are still there in exactly the same place. Is this normal for a digital camera? I've had a couple of cheapo's before but have never had this problem. So it seems a bit strange that I have these irritiating dots on a £200 camera. Shoul
