Canon Powershot SD1000: LCD screen display

\015 A friend of mine messed with the functions on my Canon Powershot SD1000 camera, and there seems to be some issue with the LCD display mode. There seems to be no issue with LCD screen for displaying the available options/functions on screen, but when I point my camera to shoot a pic, the screen does not show any image that is seens through the lens. However, the camera still works and shoots pics. Does anyone know how to get the LCD screen display the image when i'm shooting pictures? Thanks,\015

Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!

Recently, my Canon Powershot A95 has had an intermittent LCD display problem. While beginning to frame and focus a shot, the image streaks from edge to edge of the screen. If the shutter is snapped, that is the image recorded. The image looks like the subject is rapidly moving, or as though it is a time-lapse photo. Could this be a CCD (chip)issue?

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.
