Can you please, please help, my beloved Canon Power Shot A75 (purchased in 2005 in France) has developed a LCD display problem when turned on. A few months ago the screen distorted with lines and now the screen is totally black. I am asking you for help as I had no luck to find anyone here in France to give me any help or support.

The screen is black and will not take photos. The lens won't open fully and when it does eventually close has difficulty doing so. The camera then makes a beep beep beep noise and displays "Please turn the power on and off again". Please help I can't live without my camera and can't afford

PV-DC152D CAMCORDER, LCD Display only works if it is pulled out, turned 180 degrees and pushed back into place so the display is facing you. If you move the LCD display over 3/4" away from camcorder it will go black again. Personally, I think this is an issue with some sensors that gauge when to turn on the LCD display "ON" and Viewfinder "OFF" and vice-versa. Any help on this would be appreciated since there is nothing else wrong with the camcorder.


The most likely problem is a cracked ribbon cable that goes between the camera and the display. The cable needs to be replaced. Typical cost for this is around $40 or so plus labor. I would not suggest that you attempt this repair yourself as open ... Panasonic Digital Cameras
