Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera
I replaced my SD400 screen, and verified the new part number matches the old one, but when I turn the camera on, the LCD is bright white. Otherwise the camera still works great, just no LCD operation. Has anyone had this problem and fixed it?
I saw on post earlier on where the user sent it back to Canon, but I'd rather not now that it is out of Warranty.
There are a number of possible common faults that can cause the screen problem that you are describing.
It is possible that the new replacement screen is defective, or there is a defect in the ribbon cable, or the sockets are not making proper contact, or there is a cold solder connection at the socket or on the circuit board, or the driver circuits on the circuit board have a failure.
The service tech would try another screen, or ribbon cable (if changeable), or the circuit board to locate the defect. Once he finds the defective board, he will leave in the new replacement.
These cameras are serviced by modular approach.
