Blank Screen When I turn on my camera the screen remains black with nothing else visible. The power light comes on also. I just put brand new batteries in the camera. When I turn it on it won't turn off, I have to take the batteries out in order to turn it off. All this happens with or without the memory card in it. Please help!!

Re: Blank Screen

Camera is designed with one cirucit board to control most functions. The camera probably has a damaged component or dead CCD chip. There is no economical solution but replace the whole camera because the part is not available to replace it.

Canon A530 black spot on LCD which is visible in the photos tried to clean the lensa but was in vain canyou help pls?

A blck spot on your pictures, means there is something blocking light on the sensor. Could be dirt, but more lightly is there has formed some mould.
Because you can't open a compact camera to clean the sensor, I think you can't solve this problem. Opening the camera is no option, because without skills, tools and manual, you won't be able to put the camera together. A repair shop most likely won't start the job, because the repair will cost more than a new camera.
Sorry I can't bring a more positive story.

Usually this is beacause you press the button "visible", all camera have this button to choose the visible model of the LED, you can turn off it to save power to take more photos by view sight from the small sight window above the screen.
