I had the same problem. So I figured I'd take it apart and see what was loose. I removed all the screws around the outside and pulled the back cover off. There is a ribbon connector at the top with a locking cover. The cover was unlocked. I re-seated the ribbon connector and closed the lock and it works now. Let me know if you need more details.

Thanks for that link, I will keep it handy! Be careful however, because the exact same symptom can be caused by a stuck shutter. To tell if it is a stuck shutter follow these steps: 1. Turn off the flash!! 2. Look down into the lens. 3. Take a picture. Did you see anything change? The opening at the center should be momentarily covered by a matte black shield. If you take a picture and see no change inside the lens then the shutter is stuck closed or open. If Canon finds your shutter to be stuck and not a CCD failure, the repair will not be free.. very not free. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

I hooked my PS3 to my HDMI cable to get a better visual screen display for my HD movies and games, but display screen went blank and I cant get the commands menu screen, how can I get the menu commands...


You must reset your PS3 in order to accept the new TV configuration.

  • If the video output settings on the PLAYSTATION3 do not match those of the cable or TV in use, there may be no picture. If the screen goes blank, turn off the system.
  • Then, with only the PLAYSTATION3 and the TV connected, touch the system's power button for more than 5 seconds to turn the system back on. The video output settings will automatically be reset to the standard resolution.

  • Hope this helps please remember to rate my response, thanks!

    I just bought my new camera and it says that my memory card is full. But the problem is i haven't taken any pictures yet. What do i do?


    Try these: 1. Go into the camera menu and find "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. 2. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Insert your new, blank memory card and do the "format" thing again.

    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.

    No picture display when taking shot. Blank pictures produced when shot taken.


    Solution:
    Ebay has used cameras (DX4530) for about $75.00 with shipping. Kodak's repair service for these cameras is done by mailing in the camera -- and the baseline starting price is about $140.
    I'm planning to go to Ebay and buying from a seller with a good track record and reputation.

    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):

    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.
