Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera will take pictures but they are all black.

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 40 and I have to say its been beat up a bit. First of all, I broke the LCD without even knowing I did it until one day I pulled it out of my pocket and saw the screen broke. My main concern is that it got water in it because i was canoeing with it in a ziplock bag and the bag had a pin hole in it. I dried it off and everything. Currently, it takes pictures, beeps, and flashes but every picture is black on the memory card. Any suggestions?

Your CCD is damaged, OR your aperture is stuck closed in your lens. Turn on the camera, have the lens extended and look into it, do you see a small circle at the bottom that looks like an opening? If not your aperture is stuck and you need a new lens. If its open, your CCD is bad and needs to be replaced. www.darntoothysam.com

I have a canon IXUS 8015. the screen is black when i try top take a picture, how do i fix this???


If you meant to say that the LCD is black that means that the LCD is not working. Hence the set must be opened to confirm if the fault is the connecting cord, the circuit to the LCD or the LCD by itself.
If you are able to take pictures that can be downloaded to the PC then the LCD is the suspect.

IXUS 500 LCD screen has gone black.


This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

Affected cameras with this problem include: A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S230, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/V3/300/400/430/500/II/IIs, IXY Digital 200a/300a/320/400/450/500/30/30a

I have a Canon Ixus 40 and the screen does not work now can it be fixed for a reasonable cost.


Depends on whether or not the camera can take a picture OK.
If no picture, you may wish to replace the camera.
If it takes a good picture, the LCD ranges from $40 - $120 and labour to change it. Contact Canon for a good service center.

The problem is the iris is stuck.

The solution is:
1. Move the camera to TV mode(the wheel with AUTO,M,TV,...)
2. Set the exposure time to 15 seconds(15")
3. Take a picture.
4. After 7 seconds remove the batteries and put them back on.
5. Repeat the procedure until it works.

Everything is black.


I DON'T BELIEVE IT!!! My screen was dark. I turned it off. Tapped the front lightly twice, turned it on and it works.

What the heck?!?!?!?!

"Oily" spots burnt into LCD


Sounds like a cracked LCD. That happened to my S400, and it was pretty evident the glass screen had broken. I bought a new one and installed it myself at a cost of under $40. Having a shop do the repair will cost quite a bit more. If you think this is the problem, do a Google search on "canon s400 lcd screen repair" and you'll find some resources to walk you through the ordering and replacement process.
