Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
I turned my camera on to take a picture and the camera powered up but my problem is my screen is black and you cant see any of the pictures I take. All the pictures i took before this happen are shown on my screen when I view them. I also can view my displays from my menue buttons (fun.set, display, flash on or off ect.) but i cant view anything i want to take photos of what can i do before spending money on someone to fix it or buy another? Could it be one of the shutters???
ps! I never dropped it
DON'T DUMP YOUR CAMERA JUST YET! I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE SOME INFORMATION ON YOUR CAMERA AND SOME THINGS FOR YOU TO TRY. FIRST YOUR CAMERA SITE SAYS THERE IS A SWITCH ON THE BACK SIDE OF YOUR CAMERA THAT SAYS " DISP " WHICH I ASSUME MEANS DISPLAY. PLEASE TRY PUSHING THIS BUTTON AND SEEING IF THIS WORKS? NEXT YOU NEED TO TRY TO REST YOUR CAMERA. THAT IS DONE BY GOING TO SETUP>CHOOSE RESET> HOLD DOWN MENU KEY FOR 5 SECONDS AND SEE IF THAT SOLVES THE PROBLEM. THE NEXT SOLUTION MIGHT BE THAT THE CAMERA FIRMWARE MAY NEED TO BE RELOADED TO RESET THE CAMERA TO FACTORY DEFAULTS. I KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF THINGS, BUT THEY REALLY DON'T HAVE A SIMPLE ANSWER TO THIS PROBLEM. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217. GOOD LUCK!

I had the same problem- I tried for a week, and thought I would have to spend >$100 to fix it (no warranty). However, I played around with the "screen brightness" setting and that fixed it! I don't know how, but it's worth a try!

Sounds like your LCD is turned off as a power save mode to save on battery life. Pressing the "Disp" button as 'arclight1217' suggests should do the trick.

Well, my camera was still under warranty so I sent it back to Cannon. They fixed it and sent it back to me within a week. They reported that the optical device was broken, so they replaced it and did other maintenance to it and it's back to normal. I love this little camera, so it was great to get it fixed and back so quickly.
