My Canon EOS Rebel T2i EF-S 18-55 IS Kit 18MP Digital SLR 4462B003 USA Model will not come on. What is the possible problem?


It's probably coming on but the button has been pushed to activate the viewfinder so all information gose there and the LCD screen remains black OR because this camera has an interesting feature just under the viewfinder that scenes the photographer looking into the viewfinder automatically shuts off the rear LCD screen. If this sensor is blacked then the LCD screen will not come on.

Hello, could you help me please? On a canon 350D how do you switch beween evf to lcd when composing a picture? I cannot find any button that facilitates that function.


On cameras like these you cannot compose a picture on the LCD screen. You have to use the viewfinder and check the results on the screen afterwards. The viewfinder is not actually an electronic viewfinder, you are looking through the lens via a mirror as was the case on film cameras. When you press the shutter the mirror swings up and lets the image through to the ccd chip just as if it was a film camera.

I own a Dimage A2 and the viewfinder is very scratched. Can I buy one from anywhere?


In short, no. Spares are generally no longer available and expensive when they are.

But there are huge numbers of broken A1's and A2's which sell for near-nothing on auction websites which may be purchases as spares donors. The viewfinder lenses on both models are identical, although the actual electronic EVF display is different. Ask the right questions and buy wisely and you'll also end up with spare batteries and all the body covers which might have been lost from yours for no extra cost.

LCD screen not working


Hello

Ok, you should know that there is a cable which connects the lcd monoitor to the circuitboard of the camera itself. it could be that the cable is just slightly pulled out.

I know that there is a setting as well which enables you to use either the viewfinder or the lcd. Look for a button which looks like a screen with a star in it, this will either activate the lcd or the viewfinder.

At the link below you will be able to download the manual for this camera for further troubleshooting.

Kind regards

Canon S5 IS -LCD screen turns off just before clicking into place


That is typical and expected when the wires inside cable inside the hinge start to wear out. It's called planned obsolescence.

Unfortunately even though it's a very common failure, very repairable, and the rest of the camera is probably going to work for another 20 years, Canon will not sell you that part or install a new one. It has very fine wires inside it, and two proprietary connectors on each end.

They will offer to take your old camera in trade for a discount that is close to worthless, because the prices they quite on replacement cameras is about what you can buy them for new on the internet.

The good news is that you can still do everything though the eyepiece, except use the articulating screen.

Powershot pro1 viewfinder show blank white


Hi
When the LCD screen is open the viewfinder will switch of and when it is closed the viewfinder will switch on. You can switch between the two by pressing Monitor select button to the left of the Eyepiece (Viewfinder). as you look at the back of the camera.

Hope this helps.

Using the camera screen (LCD) as a viewfinder


To use the LCD as a viewfinder: Turn the Mode dial to any Still mode. Press the OK button to turn on the camera screen. Frame your subject in the LCD. Press the Shutter button to take a picture. NOTE: Using the camera screen as a viewfinder significantly reduces battery power. Use it sparingly.
