Canon S5 IS Powershot - Display Screen/Viewfinder Darkens

\015 The display screen and viewfinder darkens prior to taking a photo in every mode except for Sports mode. I found mention in the Adv Manual that this could occur when taking photos in bright light, but is not recorded darker. This occured with our camera when taking photos in the evening with good light, but not bright, from one picture(ok) to the next (dark). As a matter of fact, I have taken photos with the camera prior to this in all light conditions from sunny beach to a dimly lit room and have never encountered anything like this. The condition is recorded and occurs at any light now in every mode except sport mode, thus making the pictures dark. I did find mention of someone getting underexposure on one of the problems on your site, but the solution did not fix my problem. I have tried the ISO setting in the auto mode, but it doesn't matter if it is on auto or on High. Do you have any ideas? Thanks.\015

Digital Display We have owned a Canon Powershot A70 for about 3 years now and have taken many great photos with it. However, the display has failed several times and has been repaired by Canon who admits that their displays were made by another manufacturer. Well, the display is gone again! Can I replace the display?


X-tian--Canon will replace the CCD sensor for free if that's really the problem (see ), but in that case why would Donzoni say Canon had replaced the *display*? Unless he's confusing them, of course.\015\012\015\012Donzoni--The fact that you ... Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
