Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

LCD Screen = Kaput?

I was taking pictures with that rapid-picture setting (forgot what it's called) and my LCD screen suddenly went blank. It looks like no power is going to it whatsoever. The camera still powers on and when and I can take pictures with it (the flash still goes off) but nothing shows up on the screen anymore. I've changed batteries, reset the camera and removed the memory card, but the problem persists. My camera is more than 1 year old. Is there any hope?

Re: LCD Screen = Kaput?

It's a wild guess, but I have a visual image of the shutter mechanism getting stuck during the rapid release thing. I heard it can sometimes be fixed by tapping gently on the lens area. Whatever comes to mind has to do with the camera being over taxed during that shooting session, and something got jammed or blown. Hard to find someone qualified that will work on digital cameras for less than the fortune the manufacturers ask for, but it won't hurt to look. You could call Canon and tell them what happened, say that it's hardly over a year and that it's likely a design flaw with the rapid-picture thing. maybe you'll get lucky... ;=] When you changed batteries, how long was the camera battery-less? If not long try resting it sans battery for a good few hours, maybe it will come back from the dead. Hope you find a way, let us know

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...

The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):
