Sounds like a cracked LCD screen. You may be able to fix it if you can find a replacement screen. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement. Don't recommend that you try this yourself, unless you have some experience and are comfortable with electronics.

Otherwise, the cost of professional repair is usually beyond the value of this camera. A better option is to sell the camera on ebay for other repair hobbyists to attempt replacing the screen for themselves. You actually may get a good price for the camera IF it's still capable of taking pictures.

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer...


Don't play around with that lens, you can do more damage to the camera and focus with some of the stuff people tell you to try. Your camera just needs to be serviced and you'll be working great again. The shop that specializes in service for the powershots is: camerasandparts.com They're amazing if you need a hand with one of these, that's all they deal with. They have your exact SD850 Lens Error, Restart Camera problem on their site. Good luck, they're the place for help with a powershot, best of luck with it.

I was replacing my screen on the SD800IS.


Sounds like you need to also reseat the skinny ribbon cable. Believe this is the one that provides power to the backlight:

Not able to see the photographs on LCD/Camera Screen


Hi

Its hard to say 100% without more information...

Can you take a picture and it looks good when you transfer it to your computer? Is that what you meant? Can you see the menus, or do you see nothing at all on the screen at any time?

Its possible your camera is in a 'power save' mode and the LCD is turned off to save battery power. Try pressing the "Disp" button once and see if it turns on. If not, press it again... did it turn on? This happens to a lot of people.

If that is not the solution, then please contact me and let me know.

Hand Icon


Hi

It means there it not enough light to take a picture without it being blurry and you should switch the flash on. Try setting the flash to Auto and you should be fine.

Happy shooting from Darntoothysam com (an affordable digital camera repair business)

Canon ixus i7. LCD screen is cracked, and thus does not sdisplay any image, however the camera still zooms, takes pictures, etc Obviously now viewfinder so only way to see what your taking pic of is...


I know some canon LCDs can be replaced by the user. Canon will sell you the specific part or you can find them on ebay. The LCD ribbon cable can be easily pulled out and with a little fiddling a new one can be put in. I have not personally done it with at ixus i7. When I did it it cost like $45. Goodluck!

here are some photos of the process for a canon SD. I know the i7 might be a little different.

Canon powershot sd850 is digital elph


Hi

No, it means the screen resolution for your computer. These days most computers should have their resolution to 1024x768. If you don't know how to change it ask somebody who knows a little about computers to help, its not a problem with your camera.
