Question about Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera hangs I cannot use the camera, every time I open it the screen is blank and the green light is lit on and cannot turn it off, there are times that I can use it but can only take only one snapshot and the camera hangs. I even removed the small battery a CR1220 and return it so I have to adjust the time setting, as I change it the camera hangs also. I'm using a NiMH battery.

Digital viewfinder not working

Sounds like a loose or poor connection of the screen's flex cables, a very common problem for your model camera. The A630's vari-angle screen is a great option for a camera, but with this moveable screen, the screens data and power cables can and do wiggle loose. It is actually relatively easy to fix by just reseating these cables, but will require opening the back face of the screen of your camera. Please see this other person who had a similar problem.

Digimax L60 issue

When I turn my l60 on, the lens doesn't open all the way. Usually I just use my finger to help it along... then earlier tonight I turned on the camera again to take pictures and all I had was a white screen. I took out the battery.. then the sd card, nothing worked.

I later came online and searched for solutions.. seems this is a common problem for other cameras as well.. I tried their methods.. they say to hold the camera and just tap on it.. I tapped on the Samsung logo a few times.. the white screen was still there.. and I gave up, turned the camera back off... then decided to try again, turned it on and now I have my lcd screen working again. O_o *shrugs* I'm not going to question how it got fixed, I just hope I don't get this problem again.

Screen is blank

You tell me that you tried new batteries. Have you tried a set of NiMH batteries? They are the best for digital cameras. Please try a set, preferably ones rated 2200 or higher. If this doesn't help, the lens could be jammed. Hang onto the batteries though, because they are rechargeable and can be used in anything that takes AA batteries.
