Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
I have seen a similar problem being answered, but I request more clarification on this. I am not able to find the microswitch on top of card door that was mentioned in the solution. An image of that micro switch location would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
The black "chip" is not actually a chip, it is a swich so that when you open the cf door the camera turns off. This will work, but only for a minute or two. However, there is a chip called the ccd chip which does malfunction, due to faulty wiring. Canon is aware of this problem and will fix it for free if you visit their website.

The microchip is located when you open the card door. you will see a picture that says CF and if you go up youll see a black chip . use a pin or pen to push it in, close the slot door and it should work.

The display being blank can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the images/picture is seen to be of good quality, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.since you are able to seen the ICONS the LCD is good , Now if the picture taken are seen well the CCD is also OK and the fault seems to be a digital logic gate failure as there is no switching of the circuit .
This might require a probe and it might be a relative issue in the motherboard circuit or the processsor. Remove battery , press down all buttons to drain off voltage and see if the camera resets.
