Question about Canon PowerShot G3 Digital Camera
I have a canon powershot g3. it is about 5 years old and has not been used much in the past few years. i recently recharged it, but can get no picture image on the lcd. the lcd will show the data screens, etc. but no image through the lens. all the functions of the camera seem to be in working order -- except the ability to see through the lens. i tried cleaning the battery connections with a pencil eraser, but there was no sign of corrosion. the power from the battery seems fine. what should i do with this relatively expensive camera -- is it worth repairing? I also tried a restart with factory settings.
Assuming you are recording images on to the memory card[are you?]. Is is a 'peer through the screen to take model or can you use a normal viewfinder? If the latter I would learn to live without looking at the images ,until yo can see them on the screen[computer or TV] at home. Otherwise at this age it will be new camera time I feel, But do get onto Canon webs site technical support there may be a simple solution.
