Question about Canon PowerShot A620 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD screen problem

Nothing physically wrong with it as such, but it's far too dark in bright weather making it almost impossible to see. Canon suggest using the optical viewfinder instead, but this is of limited coverage and in any case the LCD is obligatory in some modes e.g. where focal point or metering is multi or off-centre. Can you suggest anything that would even slighly improve the brightness of the screen? The camera as such is great, but I'm finding this a big disadvantage.

You can get LCD hoods, perhaps you can find one that will strap around the movable lcd? They provide sufficient shade to see the screen clearly. They do look geeky though!

There is a brightness setting in one of the menus if I recall correctly, but it's of limited use.

Ihave a Philips 50PL9126D tv and I just replaced the lamp because the picture was very dark. I can see the picture but it is still somewhat dark, bright in the middle,dark at the edges. I tried to adjust...


Sounds like you may have the wrong lamp. Make sure you purchased a Philips lamp that's 100% compatible with your television model. Philips pioneered that lamp, so naturally they make 100 different types for DLPs and LCD projections.

You may have an elliptical lamp instead of parabolic. The lamp for your TV should read P22h.

My 61" hitachi rear proj has a very dark picture.


It sounds that lamp in TV is weak and not throwing enough light to bright the screen for good image.
How old is this TV and did you replaced its Lamp recently?
If lamp has not been replaced yet or in last 2-3 years, replace it.

Screen light is blank, but all items are working.


You will probably need to replace the LCD to fix this issue, I broke my iPod LCD and replaced it myself of eBay. The bulb you speak of is all built into the LCD and has a tape/wire that connects to the iPhone to my knowledge and if I'm wrong please feel free to correct but as far as I know its all in the LCD.

The screen on my acer 5000 has no brightness. If


You need a new screen backlight. I was an Acer Repair guy a few years back and its definatley a physical thing. Only other possibility is the dim seetings are set to pretty much 100. If turning the brightness up which you can do from the keyboard fails call acer repairs for the part number or send it in for repair.

LCD screen flashes


There is nothing wrong with your camera - It is doing what it is meant to do!

The purpose of the flashing areas is to drawn your attention to parts of the image that are over-exposed. In an ideal world nothing would ever be overexposed, but if the image has both very dark and very bright areas, the camera cannot capture both - something has to give! The flashing areas are just to let you know.

It's covered on page 52 of the manual.

Screen went dark (almost completely)


check your power cord and make sure it's plugged in all the way, and if it is, check your brightness setting.

Usually it's the Fn key + an arrow key. Make sure the brightness is up all the way

Half the screen is dark


Sounds like half your backlight is not functioning. The only thing I suggest is to call the manufacturer thats listed in your user manual and see what they think it will cost to repair unless its still in warrantee. There are no user serviceable parts inside of this unit so i dont think it would be a good Idea for you to attemt to take it apart as it may be a system to dissasembly and you make tear or break on of the small flex cables. Good luck

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?


If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.
