The camera is writing to the memory card during that process. Upgrading to a faster SD card may help solve your problem.

SD card prices have dropped dramatically. Unfortunately the very low price cards that you see these days also have very slow write speeds. It's the tradeoff that you will have to accept with these cards.

Have nikon d40 camera and have hit some button that makes a screen over the picture with camera info cant make it go away.


You have selected the histogram.
Bring up a picture on the LCD display. Using the arrow keys on the right, press down - the histogram will go away.

Display is blank


I can take perfect pictures indisde a building, but taking a picture outside, I can see the item but if I take the picture and looking at the picture the screen turns blank, seems to me that there is to much light exposure.

When you turn your camera on to the right of the view screen is the menu button if you press the far right icon it should turn your display on and off.Refer to page 21 on your owners manual.

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...


The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):

CCD malfunction, common with Sony manufactured CCD chips. You are in luck, its a free repair regardless of warranty date.
