Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera ?

My camera turns on but the screen is black and won't capture pictures?

Answers :


I am sorry to hear about your problem.
Have you tried resetting it to factory setting?
If yes,

\015\012Unlike traditional cameras, images are not\015\012transferred onto photographic film. Instead, they are focused on an\015\012array of very small components called charge-coupled devices, or CCDs.\015\012The array includes light-sensitive diodes,\015\012which create electrical currents depending upon the brightness and\015\012intensity of the light that hits them. Transistors make up the pixels\015\012of the image. So if the CCD will be faulty then then the camera won't\015\012function properly.\015\012Usually the camera can repaired by checking the CCD properly as it\015\012requires a bit of soldering.\015\012But if the CCD is totally out of order then it has to be replaced.\015\012If then the lens\015\012has been damaged then the lens will need replacement( this is a bit\015\012more probable in your case as you can't use your viewfinder too.
Hope i helped you.

Blurry lenses Same problem exactly. I'm not sure what happened (maybe sand in the camera?)

This sounds like you have gotten some kind of contamination inside the camera, it is blurry because the lens can't move to focus the image in a smooth manner, it is sticking. U can try taking this apart but based on my experience this is best left ... Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera
