CAnnon Powershot A630 LCD screen will not light up when trying to take a pic. I can, however view old pics that I've already taken.


First press the DISP or DISPLAY button to see if that corrects the problem. If not, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

The A6XX series is prone to stuck shutter problems, particularly if the camera isn't used very often. Lens lubricating grease can coagulate on the shutter, immobilizing it.

My i85 camera's lcd no longer displays what you are looking at. Just a black screen. All the menu items are there and working. The battery is charged. The power button is working as well as the lens open,...


The iris is probably shut closed or the CCD is bad. The iris controls the amount of light that enters the CCD (charged coupled device). Sometime the iris get moisture inside and cannot open. Or the CCD is defective. Leave it in a dry environment for a day. If it doesn't cure then return it to the store for a refund because the CCD will need to be removed and replaced.

Camera part won't power on


I had the exact same issue with the D-395.
I wiped off the battery contacts and the ends of a newly charged set of batteries to make sure they were clean. Also while the batteries were out, I opened and closed the lens barrier or sliding cover to try and drain any juice still in the camera. I put the batteries back in and slowly/gently slid open the lens cover. It turned on and works fine now.

Beeping camera


Mine did the same thing for forever and was brand spankin new... When the batteries go dead once, I guess it glitches... You can put brand new ones in and it will Still say low battery or act like it anyway. Give it some time. Then try to turn it on again and it will be fine. Also it will say you have a low battery if you are taking too many pics at a time... like snap snap snap and it will shut down... turn it back on in twenty minutes and its fine... full battery. If you can't deal with this... Get a battery charger and rechargable batteries. I am using them now with none of these problems

I'm just shooting in the dark, but have you tried taking the batteries out then putting them back in again. Also, you might want to look through the Sony website for an e-mail address that you could wite a question and/or ask for help/advice.

Blury Display on FE140


It sounds like your lens's focus element is stuck. Given the events you describe it is possible that a grain of sand has worked its way into the focus motor's gearing and jammed it up. Normally the small motor moves the focus optic in and out to achieve proper focus, if its movement is limited or completely jammed you will experience blurry pictures. The camera will have to be disassembled and the sand cleaned out to restore normal function. There are repair providers you can find online who can work on your camera.

Something covering lens from inside?


You could also have a battery problem. If the battery is weak, it may not extend the lens. But other things could appear to work. It takes a lot of power to extend the lens. Your docking station recharges the batteries on that camera. There has been one report (on this forum) of a Kodak camera having batteries that would not charge due to a bent/missing pin in the connector that mates with the docking station. ......... Some people have reported that a small slap on the side of a camera can jar loose a stuck lens. But don't get slap happy and damage the camera. ......... Some people have reported that they could grasp the lens and pull gently when powering-on a camera to help it extend. Again, don't over-do it. .......... Disassembling a camera would be a last resort and likely to cause more damage.
