Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Digital Camera I have a cannon powershot. When I view it in play mode its fine. When I try to take a picture it displays the cannon logo on the screen will not open the lense part and then beeps four times. I don't recall it ever being dropped. is this something I can fix myself? is this a serious problem? How much is it going to cost me to get it fixed? Thanks

    I looked in all of my manuals and I did not see anything for trouble shooting that mentioned the beeps that I am hearing from my camera

Beep signals should be mentioned in the manual, perhaps on the more comprehensive manual in the PDF file on the CD. Each set of beeps have a meaning. Check out the Canon tech support team.

Black screen on canon powershot a1200 can see the symbols and takes black pictures


Did you try to press the display button several times? You then switch between different modes, while shooting and while playback. One of the modes is screen out.

My cannon power shot sd600 viewer doesnt turn on


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns back on.

So camera doesn't give live view to take picture? and you can view old / stored  pictures OK, is it?
If yes, then it is problem of CCD imager in Canon A80 and this part needs to be replaced.

Canon A75 No startup sound & display on LCD, rest of things works fine


Think it might be your batteries. 700mah batteries are pretty weak by today's standards (most are at least 2,500 mah these days). I'm guessing your batteries are several years old? If so, they're really only meant to have a usable shelf life of a few years, whether they are used or not. Recommend trying a new set of rechargeable batteries.

Display Cannon 630 powershot


Thanks for your reply
Out of frustration I was sitting looking at the camera and thought to try all buttons and see what hapenned. On the righthand side of the camera in the bottom left position is a button marked display. Normally during live display mode, you can either switch the screen on or of by pressing this button (to conserve the batteries). If the camera is powered off and then on again, the screen automatically is in live display screen active mode again. For some reason my display remained off. When I depressed this button once after switching the camera on - voyla! The display worked again in live viewing mode. I do not know whether the screen is supposed to stay in the off mode when powered down in live display off mode even when it is switched off and then back on again or not, but the previous times I did, it was automatically on when powered up again.
So, before repairing your camera, please make sure that it is actually broken - refrain from making a fool of yourself like I did.
Thanks once again for your support
Regards - notsobroken
