Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera ?

Cannon sd400 power shot

\015 LCD screen is white with a feather image diagonally across it.\015\012This screen displays whether in shoot or play mode. \015\012I can take a picture with the range finder but only see the white screen\015\012with feather image in LCD.\015

Answers :

Sounds to me like you have a broken LCD screen. This is unfortunately very common in the SD200, SD300, and SD400 cameras. Because an LCD display is made up of a few sheets of very thin glass, they tend to break rather easil and then the "dye" leaks out, hence your feather pattern.

\015\012If you feel up to taking your camera apart, you can purchase a replacement screen on eBay for around $60-$80. If you don't feel up to trying to replace it yourself there are people on eBay who offer repair services for broken LCDs and they typically charge between $80-$100.
