LCD Dispaly malfunction


\015 I have a Canon S30 digital camera, 5-6 years and it worked perfectly until last week.When I turn it on, the lens comes out normally but there is no image on the LCD screen. The shutter works but it does not take a picture. I can't get the menu to come onto the screen either.Whats wrong?gil\015

Answers :

The screen has two components. The LCD, and the backlight. You can buy broken cameras relatively cheaply on ebay (or if you have it, craigslist). Do that, and you might be able to replace the screen.

This is to inform that I am having Casio Digital Camera Exilim EX-Z500 for last few years. The same was giving very good pictures, but last week, it suddenly started malfunctioning. Whenever, we took indoor pictures, they were coming out well as per attached pictures (CIM2831 & CIM2826) but when the camera was taken outside in the day light, though the picture was very clear on the LCD screen but after clicking, the picture is overshadowed with white light (as per other attached pictures).


Some things to try:\0121. Go into the menu and find "reset" to return to factory default settings.\0122. Check the ISO setting....you may have it set too high for outdoor pictures.\0123. Check the "exposure compensation"...it should be at "0". ... Casio Exilim EX-S500 Digital Camera

The LCD on my Canon Powershot A610 went completely black yesterday while I was shooting. The illumination has not returned. The photos taken look fine. However, it is not possible to preview any shots. In playback mode, the illumination operates as it should. I know of another person whose A610 had this same malfunction recently, and we have no idea how to remedy this. The relevant section of the manual did not provide a solution. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
