On the back of the camera you should see a little picture of a lightning bolt. Click this multiple times and it will cycle thru the different flash settings. Look for the one where the bolt is in a circle and there's a diagonal line going across it. This means NO FLASH. Once you have set that it will prevent the camera from firing the flash.

Screen does not show images


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

My Pwershot SD450 will not take photos in low or interior light.


I hope that you have selected "flash on". Try first on at all times;and then flash AUTO.
ISO at 400 or 800
Does it flash when you take a picture ?
If not, and it is selected to flash, then the capacitor or bulb needs replacing.

I cannot figure out how to turn off the flash on my canon sd450


You first need to change the operating mode to Manual. Then you can change the flash by pressing the right button a few times.

SD450 lcd went black


Please see the following post, and look for the SD400 LCD repair link. Click on the pictures of that site for larger pics. Follow the disassembly instructions, but skip the lengthy LCD removal portion. Instead just look for the LCD connector as shown on the front of the camera. Unseat the cable from the connector as shown by lifting the connector gate, BUT DO NOT unthread the cable through the camera. Merely examine its ends, and if it looks dirty gently clean it with a drop of alcohol on a Qtip. Give it some time to dry, and then reseat it back into its connector, close the connector gate, reassemble the camera and try it out.

Make sure you also read the following Flash Capacitor Shock Warning post on the above blog site before proceeding.

Good Luck and hope it works. If it doesn't the next step would be to check out the electrical wire power connection to the back light.

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera


maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.

Turns on, takes pictures, blank screen


I know in most digital cameras there is an option buried in one menus to turn display OFF. Perhaps, you can have a look around in the various menus to turn screen back on. Also, there should be another button or feature that allows you to view the shots you've taken.
