OK, I FOUND ONE SOLUTION FOR YOU. I LOCATED A USED LCD, IN EXCELLENT CONDITION ON EBAY FOR $16.50. IT IS ITEM # 290273128417 FROM DIGITAL CAMERA PARTS. THE PART IS A SIMPLE PLUG IN TYPE REPAIR, USER REPLACEABLE. I DID NOT FIND ANY OTHER SOLUTIONS TO THE PROBLEM. I ALSO DID NOT FIND ANY OTHER CASES OTHER THAN ONES WHERE THE CAMERA HAD BEEN DROPPED. THE REPLACEMENT PART SEEMS TO BE THE CHEAPEST WAY TO GO AND IS A LOT CHEAPER THAN SENDING YOUR CAMERA TO A REPAIR SHOP. THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE CLOSER TO $100.00. YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO VIEW THIS ITEM AND CONTACT THE SELLER BY GOING TO EBAY AND ENTERING THE ITEM NUMBER AND IT SHOULD SHOW THE PART AND THE SELLER INFO. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

When switching camera on there is a blank screen


In settings, you might have switched off the image for when the camera starts. Turn it back on. Also, if that doesn't work, try deleting some photos or change the sim card or the battery itself, not charge it.

Please try and reset the mode of the image to see if the LCD does not go blank when shown to higher light. Also if there is no issue with the indoor pictures then it is possible that the auto light detection is giving a higher value to reset the image balancing. Shift from Auto to manual mode and try.

I dropped my Powershot A 530, and since then i am not able to see any image on the screen, and when i shoot it regardless i get blank images on the memory card. The previous images that i had taken are...


Either a "cracked" logic-board, or loose wires from the video-screen, so that nothing (except "darkness") is being sent from the photo-sensors to the logic-board.

Copy all the pictures from the card onto your PC, and then buy a new camera -- this will be less-expensive than having a camera-repair professional trouble-shoot it.
