Canon S2 IS LCD Screen Doesn't Work Correctly

\015 Had a lot of trouble with this camera. Worked great in the beginning. The LCD screen started to **** out every now and then. Then after not using camera for a while i got the Black Screen problem. To my suprised it friggin worked!!!Now the LCD screen doesnt work in the normal position for taking pictures. I works when i swivel the screen but having to take pictures like that is really annoying. Can anyone help?\015

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen. Everything else works fine in the monitor, but it is as if the lens where covered with the cap. But it´s not, and acutally all the other modes work fine. Only in the manual mode the image doesnt show, and the pictures also appear completely black. The menu shows sometimes something as if the exposure were less than -2, but even though i change the values for everything hig

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 Canon G9 was working fine but now movie clips are playing correctly when viewed on the camera's LCD screen but when downloaded to my laptop the image aspect ratio is incorrect and the picture looks squashed. Any ideas?

I have a Canon Powershot 5S IS. The image on the LCD screen is not rotating when I rotate the screen, and when I snap the screen into place with the LCD side out it goes from displaying on the LCD to displaying on the viewfinder.

Memory Card Locked The card works fine in my other Canon Camera, but not in my A620. I've switched out the cards and nothing works in my A620, but they all work in my other Canon. Memory Card Locked is all I get in the 620 and nothing works on camera. Lens comes out and the LCD screen lights up, but that is it. Any help would be appreciated. Jeff


I'm assuming the slide switch on the side of the card is in the correct position. In order for a card to work in a particular camera, it must first be formatted in that camera. This completely erases it so download any pictures still on it to your co ... Digital Cameras

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.

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.

Nchatta Hello, My Canon s45 was working perfectly until it was dropped from a very very small heigh in a soft leather case with protection. The camera works in the sense that it can read and display the images from the SD card perfectly, the lense extends but you cannot see anything on the LCD when wanting to take a picture bar a white box in the middle that usually turns green once focussed (but now doesn't.) The screen is just black. The shutter clicks, takes the picture, but just a black LCD

Canon A85 Well there are a couple of things going on right now. Sometimes when I turn the camera on it will come on but the screen on the back stays dark and blank and it doesnt make the power on noise, other times it will come on correctly. Also when you do get it to come on correctly the screen is very hazy and has lines running through it.

Black LCD Canon A60 Cute camera, many nice features. Installed a Lexar 256mb CF. Worked well until just past the warranty period. Now nada, just a black screen, or scrambled LCD. If you squeeze the shutter, wysiwyg--a black photo. Contacted Canon and essentially they offered me an "upgrade" to their A70 for $150 plus $10 for shipping. And a 3 month warranty. Any advice or do I have an expensive paperweight?
