Sd110 lcd My LCD did not work, canon repaired it....GREAT! but 2 weeks later it died. It was blank so I send it back and canon says they want money to fix. Damn.. It still takes photos with no problem. I cannot access any functions because the LCD won't work. I've tried the Display button and got the black and white screen of death. I have to take the card out to transfer photos. Canon says"UNIT HAS IMPACT/PRESSURE TO LCD". Do I need a new LCD or what. thanks, steve stokes

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
How can I take the cover off the lcd viewfinder on a Canon Powershot a480? There is oil under the cover. Canon will not repair it under the warranty, and they will charge the cost of a new camera to fix it. There is no problem with picture taking, but it's hard to see the viewfinder image due to the oil.
LCD means "liquid crystal display"...probably the "oil" is the "liquid". ... Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera

Canon s21s I bought my camera in March 2006 and have not had a problem until 2 weeks ago. Both the viewfinder and LCD screen are black when trying to take a picture but the icons remain on the screen. The lens continues to pop out so obviously something in the lens shutter is not opening up. But previously taken photos are visible with the playback mode. Has canon offered any help yet?

My canon sure shot has never given me problems. Then I didn't use it for a few months, picked it up, and when I turn it on it is a blank screen through the lens, or the fold out lcd picture! What might the problem be?

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

I have a Cannon PowerShot SD750. The LCD suddenly went blank - dark all through, last month Dec.,08. I tried everything - reset, disp button, menu, power down, etc. to no avail. The best answer to my search for solution recommends sending it back to the manufacturer for a free correction of the problem which they say occurs when the camera is left in a too-hot-for-it environment, like inside a car on a sunny (hot) day. My problem is which canon address or telephone number do I contact? I am base

Battery Problem I have a new Canon PowerShot A640 (< 1yr old). Lately it keeps giving low battery indication & sometimes shuts down, even with fresh new batteries. Situation improves slightly when I don't use the LCD display, but shooting with the viewfinder is a pain. Can anyone suggest what is wrong?

All of a sudden i can't see anything through my viewfinder on my canon 5d (not Mark II) even when I look at a bright light (then it is only a dim blur). It does take photos which appear on the LCD, but I cannot see what I am shooting. Does anyone know if I hit something by mistake or a solution to this problem? Please advise as I am traveling and need my camera to operate correctly. Many thanks, Mia

My Canon PowerShot A85 no longer shows scene on the LCD screen before shoot nor immediately afterward and records a blank on the memory card. Photos taken before this problem started can be viewed on the screen in review mode. Otherwise camera feels normal, i.e. turns on and off, zooms, sounds like it recorded a photo.

Blank lcd I just got a new canon 600D. After playing with it for a while, i turned it off. Then after 5-10 mins i turned it on once again, and opened the lcd screen, but it shows blank(or say black). I can see that the lcd backlit is workeing, but nothing (no content) is displayed. Can this be an issue of low battery ? pressing the shutter button full also not capturing the picture. Flash works though, and optical view finder too, but it does not capture the photo.
