How do you fix a canon power shot A70 whose ccd has been exposed to sunlight? My screen is blank. Will not focus on anything..


If the sensor has been exposed to the sun for a period of time unfortunately it will mean a new camera. I believe the price to replace a sensor is pretty close to getting a new camera.

When I am outside, I can not see anything on the screen to take a picture because of the glare. I have tried covering the camera but still cannot see.


This is normal. If the sun is very bright, it overpowers the lcd screen. In this case, I normally switch to the viewfinder.

Glare on lcd screen


it's pretty normal.. try wearing a brimmed hat to create shade, turning the brightness up on the screen, the lcd's tend to get washed out in the bright sun.

New Kodak M1033 cannot see image on LCD in sunlight


This is a common problem with all LCD screens without anti-reflective coatings.This is normal. Increase the brightness of LCD while shooting in the sun. Internal memory normally takes only a few images. This is normal. Use a memory card to shoot more images.

Flaw on LCD monitor


This is normal. It may be distracting, but what it is is light. If you notice, it happens when there are bright spots, lights, reflections. These distortions will show up in video so try to avoid aiming at bright things while in video mode. Another type of flicker will happen mostly in florescent light.

Before CCD image sensors, video camera used tubes and aiming them at the sun or bright objects would burn the tubes permanently so cameras have come a long way, but by the nature of cameras being devices that record light, it is hard to eliminate that effect altogether (similar to red eye...just can't be a perfect science due to human nature of having blood vessels in the back of their eyes that when bright light is shined into them, their pupils open and the red color is reflected and shows up as red eye...this is best fixed in a photo editing program. It is hard to totally prevent, but changing angles and not shooting directly head on at subject helps). But I digress...

If it is really distracting for you, here is the one thing I found helpful; recompose the shot slightly by moving yourself, the camera, the angle (doesn't have to be dramatically different, but try to have the sun or light source behind the camera). As you move around, continue to push the shutter halfway down (each time not continuously) to bring subject into focus (getting your green box or boxes that indicate proper focus). Sometimes the lines will disappear if you change your shot even very slightly.

Hope this Helps!

Getting great pictures


Here are some tips for taking great pictures with your PDC 700 camera: * Keep the sun behind you or at your side. Avoid having the sun directly overhead. * Use the Flash On setting if there is a light behind your subject. * In low light conditions, use a tripod to avoid camera movement during exposure. * When possible, take pictures when the temperature is between 13C (55F) and 35C (95F). Temperatures outside this range can affect battery performance. * Keep the subject within the flash range of 18 in. to 10 ft. (0.45m to 3m.) * Avoid shooting toward reflective objects, which can result in "hot spots" in your pictures. If you cannot avoid shooting toward reflective objects, use the Flash On setting . * Periodically clean the lens, the LED area on the front of the camera, and the LCD display on the back of the camera. Use a soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use cleaning solutions or chemically treated tissues.

The LCD screen is hard to see. What should I do?


If the LCD screen is too bright or too dark, adjust the LCD Brightness setting in the Setup Menu. If you are shooting photos outdoors in bright light, move the joystick to the icon showing the sun over shaowed area to turn on Outdoor mode and make the LCD screen easier to see in bright light.
