OK, I FOUND ONE SOLUTION FOR YOU. I LOCATED A USED LCD, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION ON EBAY FOR $16.50. IT IS ITEM # 290273128417 FROM DIGITAL CAMERA PARTS. THE PART IS A SIMPLE PLUG IN TYPE REPAIR, USER REPLACEABLE. I DID NOT FIND ANY OTHER SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM. I ALSO DID NOT FIND ANY OTHER CASES OTHER THAN ONES WHERE THE CAMERA HAD BEEN DROPPED. THE REPLACEMENT PART SEEMS TO BE THE CHEAPEST WAY TO GO AND IS A LOT CHEAPER THAN SENDING YOUR CAMERA TO A REPAIR SHOP. THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE CLOSER TO $100.00. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO VIEW THIS ITEM AND CONTACT THE SELLER BY GOING TO EBAY AND ENTERING THE ITEM NUMBER AND IT SHOULD SHOW THE PART AND THE SELLER INFO. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

Blank Screen I have just bought one of these cameras and when you open the shutter to take a photo there is only a blanks screen. I have a second of these cameras so know this is when the camera should 'roam' ready to take a snapshot. If I click the button to capture an image, it is stored and I can see it, but then it goes back to a blank screen. Any ideas :)

"unidentified image" About half the time when I take a picture it will take fine and show up and then when I go to look at it after it will say unidentified image. Sometimes the picture will still show up but in a small portion of the screen and still say unidentified image. I thought it was the memory card bought a new one and synced it and it still does this about half the time.

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!

I have taken the batteries out several times and that cleared it up one time but has since went back to the white screen.

The camera was taking pictures a few days ago.

Blank screen My Canon Powershot SD600, when in picture taking mode, does not show any images on the screen -- it is dark. However, in video mode and play mode, it is just fine so I know the screen still works. And it can take pictures, I just can't see anything!


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP (Display) button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save battery power. You could then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn it b ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

Canon SD400 I dropped my SD400 and it will turn on, but the shutter will not retract. However, the screen comes on in color and then goes black and says no image.

Should I take it somewhere to get it fixed... and where can I take it?

I own a canon s2 is power shot. Symptoms began with the digital zoom beeping and the screen going blank when invoked to draw an image closer. After a periood of time of avoiding the zoom, the camera lense stuck inside and gave an e18 message when beeping.

Hi, the flash card card-eject lever spring is broken and wont eject the card. u have to manually push the card in place and pull the card out. the lever stays up until u shut the card slot door.once the card is in place the camera can read the card if images already exist. but...it will not record an image and shows up as blank on the screen after the shutter takes the image? is this the cause of the broken eject lever. thanks.


I have the same problemI think that the reason that the not record the image is that the card slot door is pushing down on the card eject lever and ejecting the card when the door is closedThe only answer I can think of is to shorten the leverdavidh ...

Camera will turn on. It will show stored pics, but the screen is black when trying to take pic (tho it has info on it- like how many pics I have left on memory card). If I take a pic, then it's all black. Sometimes it makes funny noises and often it will say "camera has detected an error and is shutting down. Please restart." And then the number 32.

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder, all i get is a completely black photograph. Occasionally, i see a glitter or two on the screen which is black and white (kind of like an unsynced TV image), but then it disappears pretty quickly

Photos delete if i turn the camera off . I turn it on, and it says "26" on the screen, meaning i can take 26 pics. i'll take maybe 4 and turn it off. If i turn it on again, it will read "26" again and sure enough, when i connect it to the pc no pictures are detected. The only time i can upload pics from the camera is if I take the pics and connect it to the pc asap without turning it off.
