Question about Canon PowerShot SD870 IS Digital Camera

Line in the LCD screen

There is a line going through the LCD screen that kind of looks like an etch a sketch. What should I do? I have never dropped the camera either.

    I think my LCD screen has partially burned-out pixels. It's no longer just a black etch-o-sketch line but now is more like a blob and growing slowly. What gives? (note: when downloaded, images are flawless.)

    Small blob of defective pixels appeared, then the next day it grew many times larger. Was never dropped or exposed to water.

I would second the suggestion:
Canon Powershot LCD Replacement.
Screw around with the connection of the LCD and maybe you will get lucky.

There is a very strong possibility that a part of the film circuit of the LCD was loose and somehow totally lost connection due to shaking and other forms of physical trauma.

here are some links you may find helpful:

An 'etch-a-sketch' - type image that at quick glance, looks like an elephant, appears in the upper right section of the screen. It isn't captured with print screen. Swapped out monitors to different CPUs....


I did see a similar issue with a Gateway display, the source of the image was the screen is damaged by the cover inside the screen. Basically, the inside frame was scratching the back of the screen making the image to appear until it damages the screen enough to turn off pixels.

Another possible cause are: "burned pixels", some kind of damage (liquids inside the display), the display was hit, or something like that.

The only solution is to replace the display or use it until is breaks (but it will be quite annoying).

Color is mostly yellow and blue with double images


you have lost the convergence IC`s in your set, this really isn`t a diy repair unless you are very proficient in un-soldering and re-soldering components, once replaced there will be an alignment procedure as well that will require the service manual also, if you have more questions feel free to ask away, video-tek
