    The outer LCD screen has a big black spot in the middle of it and lines across the screen vertically and horizontally. I'd say it looks like the screen was hit very hard in one spot except that the plastic outer cover for the front has no visible damage. Who knows what caused it.

    I believe I have a similar problem...I was just sitting around texting one minute...then I closed my phone...and the front screen looked like it had been hit with something really hard...there is a black spot that looks like 'ink' and there are vertical lines and a white spot...there is no damage to the outside screen itself...and the inside works just looks as if it was smashed on the inside of the front screen..but i didn't drop it or sit on it or anything..i have no idea how this would have happened?

    I have the exact same issue. Called Verizon and they said they could not replace the phone because it was a hardware failure. What can someone do to get this replaced?

    I have the same problem. My phone just started to do it yesterday and now the color is all washed out. there is a thick black line down the middle and bunch of little black lines branching off of that.

Search for "chocolate 3 lcd" on Ebay. For ~$26 and a little technical work you can replace the outside & inside LCD module.

    Scratch what I said about Ebay. I got one from the seller there and it didn't work right. I returned it and they sent another that had the same problem. It probably isn't the right model for the phone. I bought one from for $31 shipped and installed it tonight. It works perfectly!

    Replacement is fairly simple but you'll need a small jeweler's or glasses screwdriver. Here's how:

    1. Open the phone and remove the 4 round stickers covering the screws in the corners.

    2. Remove the 4 screws then carefully pry along the edge to pop the cover off. Once you get it all "popped", it will lift easily off. ***Be careful not to pull too hard on the cover since the ribbon cable connected to the thumbwheel is still attached.

    3. Close the phone and set it screen side up. Turn the thumbwheel cover 90 degrees to minimize tension on the ribbon cable and allow access to the LCD.

    4. Near the camera, *gently* pry up on the orange ribbon cable going to the camera. It should pop up and fold up over toward the camera.

    5. Under the camera ribbon cable, *gently* pry the ribbon it plugged into upward to seperate it from the LCD ribbon connector below it.

    6. Pry under the LCD and lift the bottom end out from under the ribbon cable angling across it. Once it's partially lifted out you may need to work a small screwdriver under its ribbon cable connector since there's a sticky surface below it to hold it in place. Gently wiggling the LCD module side to side helps it come out.

    7. Remove the LCD, and put the new one in in reverse order.

    8. Click the ribbon connector back into place, followed by the camera one.

    9. Turn on the phone and see it all work.

    9. Snap the cover on, replace the screws and stickers and you're done!

    One more thing: You can see pictures of all of the insides of your phone (or any FCC registered device) on the fcc site here:

    Down at page 7 and below you can see the LCD and ribbon cable connectors.

Nothing Display in Canon Ixus 750

Explain how broken Does the Screen display anything? If it does but is cracked then clear tape will fix it. If it is 'dead' then nothing will fix it and no repair I would think is possible. But to be sure check your local web site for repairers or even Canon - but possibly not in Bangla
