Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

4 Answers

No image, No picture

My Canon PowerShot A75, is not showing images on display screen, neither it is recording pictures. The pictures are Blank when shot and downloaded. However I can see stored images on my display screen. Normally when I switch the camera 'on', it shows the 'view' on display screen.Now if I switch it on nothing is visible on display screen. I tried the solution mentioned here ( pressing the switch on the top of the card slot). It is still not working.

    I have the same problem. LCD shows stored images in playback mode, but in camera mode, LCD is black (but DOES show camera function icons) Pictures taken are black. Looks like CCD is shot. Any ideas?

  • jim2907 Aug 11, 2008

    I have the same problem. LCD screen is blank in "shooting mode," and any pics taken are also blank, though the LCD screen works okay in "playback" mode.

From the Canon Website: Issue: The LCD/Electronic Viewfinder will not display an image. Solution: Special information regarding a blank or distorted screen on certain digital camera models Details: [ Hide ] Important Notice About Your Canon Product: It has recently come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD image sensors used in this Canon digital camera may cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments. Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor.

I had already got the CCD changed for my camera free of cost. This was done 1 year back. The problem with LCD not able to display any image has popped up recently.

Also as the camera is able to take the picture rightly it is not the CCD problem but something else related to LCD display mechanism.

Not sure why it is not able display the images.

Anyways thanks for the above suggest solutions.
