Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black Screen When Open, but the Picture quality is fine

When I open my digital camera(Canon Powershot SD600), the screen is black except for a few icons on the left. Then it turns all black many seconds later. I tried changing settings but the only settings that appears to have a fine screen is "digital macro" but the quality isn't good. When I take pictures with the black screen it's fine. It's quality is like the same as it would be without a black screen. I bought my camera only about 1 month ago. I'm not sure what the problem is. It worked fine a day ago.

It's not the screen, but its backlight that is the problem. It's likely a poor connection of the ribbon cable in its connector socket. This problem will require either professional repair, or your opening the case to reseat the backlight ribbon cable in its connector. Here's a disassembly of a somewhat similar SD600 to give you an idea of what's involved.

Does it show pictures on the computer or is it black images, if they are black, your cameras lens cover could be stuck, it opens up when the lens is fully open, dirt-sand and dust or old grease causes the problem. otherwise your LCD on the camera could be off by mistake, (Do a camera reset) or a bad LCD

Canon Powershot sd30 Black screen

Then it sounds like there may be an error with your CCD (what comverts the light going into your camera into a digital picture, like digital film). even if your warranty is expired canon may still repair this for free. Contact canon at 1-800-OK-CANON and explain to them the problem and that you think the CCD may be defective.
