Sounds like the LCD ribbon cable is not seated properly in the connector. Did you unlock the cable before disconnecting the old one and then lock down the new one? Try taking it apart and putting it back in again.

Is there any damage to the ribbon cable or the gold contacts at the end of the cable? If so, the LCD is ruined and not useable.

If you like we offer an LCD installation for only $25 if you already have the LCD. Google search "digital camera parts", we are first on the list: Darntoothysam com

If we can help please let us know!

Broken screen


If the camera is fully functional other than the screen, then yes the LCD screen can be replaced, you can order the part yourself from a Canon dealer if you wanted to do the job, or let them handle the repair with an estimate.

Cracked screen


I'd stay away from some of the cheaper displays for these cameras. If you want to get the part and have it installed right or even do it yourself, try either www.camerasandparts.com or Canon themselves. They both have the part and both do the service, www.camerasandparts.com deals with the parts and service exclusively on the Canon Powershots, they are about half of what Canon wants for the service on these. Both places do very good work, it's just a little more expensive going directly with Canon.

I crushed the screen of my Canon Powershot SD450 camera. Pls. estimate cost of screen repair. Is it on the screen thats cracked cozi can still take photos but cant see them.


Many screen breaks happen to ruin the LCD from visibly displaying a picture. On some cameras, the screen is attached to the back plate of the camera and are very easy to replace with a new one. Some screens are attached to a video pc board and may ruin the board from displaying anything. Your best bet is to have it repaired professionally by one of our top repair providers and get an estimate first. I have repaired many good digital cameras with a LCD replacement, but I also had to purchase a broken used one for parts because new parts became to expensive to repair the one with a broken LCD. BTW: all digital cameras contain many PC boards and if you can still take pictures means the boards that control your lens, motors, CCD, and I/O boards are still intact and functional. Hope this helps - fotobean

Canon ixus i7. LCD screen is cracked, and thus does not sdisplay any image, however the camera still zooms, takes pictures, etc Obviously now viewfinder so only way to see what your taking pic of is...


I know some canon LCDs can be replaced by the user. Canon will sell you the specific part or you can find them on ebay. The LCD ribbon cable can be easily pulled out and with a little fiddling a new one can be put in. I have not personally done it with at ixus i7. When I did it it cost like $45. Goodluck!

here are some photos of the process for a canon SD. I know the i7 might be a little different.

LCD screen wont work


I had this problem w/ my canon. It is a cracked LCD screen. I took the camera apart and replaced the LCD screen. I ordered the new one for $50 including shipping. you may have to do some detective work to find the part you need. I used a screwdriver for eyeglasses.
