    I had a similar problem. The camera would shoot photos and show me photos that I had taken but I had to use the viewfinder to take photos. The screen would not show what the camera was looking at. So I finally read the manual and found that I had pushed the DISP (display) button that shuts off the display. When I pushed it again, the camera was back to normal.
    When all else fails, read the instructions!

Hi there, Canon is having a problem with there ccd units on some models including this one. You could send it to canon or take it to a canon warranty depot and they could confirm that fault and repair it under warranty. As long as there is no impact damage, you should be ok.

Check to make sure that you did not accidentally change image format from jpg to crw(camera raw). Your camera lcd will only display jpg files and you need special software to view raw files on the pc.

I am unable to see what I am taking a picture of.


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Blank LCD on Canon A95


Believe that you accidentally pressed the DISP button on the bottom back row of your camera. This manually turns the display on and off as desired to save batteries. Press the button once more to turn it back on.

When I turn the camera on, the image that I am shooting does not show on the LCD monitor. When I switch the camera mode to view images I have taken previously, they show up but the new images are not...


there are many point you may want to look at.

first, if the LCD does not display the picture you just capture, there is a possibility that the digital module of the device is broken and that it does not show or save the pictures you have recently captured.

if the pictures you recently captured can be viewed on a computer, there is a possibility that the connection between the LCD and the camera is loose. we canot say that tha issue is the LCD since it displays previoulsy captured image.

to work around the issue, it is best if you visit a local repair shop or a technician to have a look at the unit and have it repaired.

as per the cost, it will actually depend on the damage of the device. you may want to put a new camera as one of your options.

Lcd panel


SLR's don't show what your seeing through the view finder on the LCD. That is a function on point and shoot cameras, not on SLR's.
