Nchatta Hello, My Canon s45 was working perfectly until it was dropped from a very very small heigh in a soft leather case with protection. The camera works in the sense that it can read and display the images from the SD card perfectly, the lense extends but you cannot see anything on the LCD when wanting to take a picture bar a white box in the middle that usually turns green once focussed (but now doesn't.) The screen is just black. The shutter clicks, takes the picture, but just a black LCD

BROKEN LCD Today, I had my camera in my camera bag. Somehow, the screen got busted. I took out my camera to take a picture and the entire full screen view is cracked. The camera turned on and off just fine; it seems that only the screen was damaged. No images are shown when I attempt to look at the pictures I took and when I try to take a picture, I cannot see anything on the screen. Is the screen repairable or is it best to purchase a new digital camera?

I can turn my sd1000 on, the flash works, everything works. The only thing is that I can't see what's going on through the lcd, but when I take a picture the picture does come up. The funny thing is that if I'm recording a video, I can see what's going on in the lcd. It's only not working during picture taking. Everything else works, it plays back and everything.
