My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple


If the CCD were bad and everything else OK, you would see all the icons on the LCD (viewing screen), and you would be able to see images on the memory card that had been taken in the past while in Replay mode. The service letter you refer to covers r ... Canon Digital Cameras

Ruined Screen My friend's screen is ruined. When it's off you can see some damage or something on the screen. When I turn it on I get this. http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c386/Judas_Iscariot_X8792/Camwithbrokescrean.png Also the lens doesn't "grow" out like it should when you turn it on. It hasn't been dropped in water, nor has it fallen to the ground and broke that way. Does anyone know if this can be fixed. I also don't know if this cam is under warranty.


Kodak has a web site where you can enter the serial number and check warranty status, if it is less than a year old and has been registered it is possible it will be covered. This is just a guess on my part. ... Kodak EasyShare M853 Digital Camera
