Question about Canon PowerShot SD10 / IXUS I Digital Camera
Hi there- the camera all of a sudden lost its picture- has power, turns on and off- but it no longer shows my review images or shows me any picture/image at all. EXCEPT for one second immediately after I turn it on. Any sugesstions? Jessica
Plug it into the computer and turn the camera on (as if you were transferring pictures). No amount of fooling around fixed it until I did that.
I did have the screen flicker at a non-constant rate after waiting a minute or two on "camera" mode. Nothing happened with review mode.
I have also heard things about old rechargable batteries not giving enough power to make the screen turn on, but this camera takes lithium... and I doubt that was the source of the problem... I really don't know what caused it... Probably was power. The camera would not turn on when the battery was out and it was connected via USB, so the USB connection apparently does not supply power to the camera.... so I still don't know what the problem was...

Could be A. Battery contacts need a clean take them out and with the end of pencil eraser clean the contact in base of the chamber. B battery door losing tension - press it closed whilst in use. C. an internal connector worked loose try gently squeezing around the base of the screen- this usually where the connectors are. Do get onto Canon Tech Support Team. Just be prepared for a no repair solution. I.E. new camera

Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
Also try resetting the Camera back to factory default: The RESET button is located at the lower right side of the control button. To reset the camera just press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.
If the issue remains the same, then service may be required.
Thanks for using FixYa.
