Question about Canon PowerShot A540 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Screen has gone white

The screen on my camera has gone white and nothing will display on the screen including the menu. Turning ON my camera (Canon PowerShot A540) like usual but the display went white (slowly fades to grey then back to white). Nothing seems to bring back a normal display (batteries, connector...). No special sound or smell. Video signal is good when connected to a TV via the audio/video connector. Everything else seems to be fine. Thanks!

Either your LCD is damaged or the cable connecting it to the rest of the camera is loose. I would suggest taking it to be repaired.

I have a Canon Rebel t2i. The LCD screen does not display any images including menu items. How can I get it to work? Details below...


This appears to be a deeper problem than can be fixed with advice on here. I suggest you take it for a professional repair. Check the repair estimate with the value of the camera.

The screen on my Canon 7D will not display anything when in manual mode. The camera works perfectly when it is set to Auto, but when I take it off auto the screen gets dead. There is no viewing the photos,...


This is what I want to say. On a Canon camera, always press the display button several times, to cycle through all possible screen options. Including the display nothing.
Try this in the recording and in the view mode just to get used to what it does.

Black screen problem with Canon PowerShot SD 750


Did you accidentally press the DISP button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns the screen back on.

Turn on camera but the lcd sceen is black


Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.

Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.

If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
