Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Screen black The screen will only work during the "panoramic mode" (the one where you can take several images to link together side by side. At all other times, whether in camera mode or review mode, the screen is blank. This occurred suddenly after no particular trauma. Replacing the batteries or banging it on the table have not helped. Is this the type of malfunction described in the notice on the cannon website?? Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory (Updated 10/31/2006)

Re: screen black

Yonatan: It's a Manufacturer's Malfunction. Canon already recognize the problem and they are supposed to repair your camera even if you don't have any proof of purchase, beacause the problem is in the camera (their product). You can call Canon at 1-800-828-4040 to schedule an equipment check and repair. Do not open the camera or bang it against anything. We don't want Canon to have other excuse for not repairing your Digital Cam. SithPitt

No image is captured by the screen itself (LCD screen works but completely dark).

Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.

Screen black r1

Can you come into the menus? Just to check you did not change anything? Sometimes the monitor or display stays black in record mode, because the camera was put in power save mode. In the manual you can find hoe to switch it on again. Has to do, with what you want to see during record mode. Just the image, image with info, sometimes with a grid and then display off.

My olympus e volt 500 will not display image when in shoot mode

There is a little button on the back, marked 'info'. Press it to switch from picture view to settings view. It also operates the viewfinder.

Olympus also has a good photo editing program that is free and it allows you to edit photos and stitch pictures taken pn panoramic mode into one panoramic picture. It's called Olympus Master.

How to take panoramic shots with sony a300 slr

It's all about the lens. There are special lenses for that. Or you can just take 3 or a 360 image around you and combine them together. I would recommend a tripod so the image is level and one is not too high and too low.

Have fun on your trip.

No display powershot a75

Did you get a solution to your problem? I am experiencing the exact same thing with my A75. Still takes pictures and displays them for the 2 second preview, then back to black. And they download fine, too. But I get the same black screen in every mode except stitch assist and movie mode. Thanks.

Scn mode

You need to press the function/set button and click right until you reach the "Stitch Assist" icon. It looks like two overlapping boxs. Once you activate it, take photos, repositioning each shot to align with the last. When you are done, press function/set button again to end the process. After you download your images you will need to use the bundled software, ZoomBrowser, to stitch the images together. The option is in the Tools menu, "Stitch Photos".

Black LCD monitor on Powershot S410

that is not a malfunction, if the "display" button is pressed, the LCD turns off, (black), but if the mode switch is rotated to movie or panorama, it comes back on but will go black again if switched into the other 2 modes. when in one of the 2 modes that show black, simply press "display" and the LCD will come back on.

FYI "GURU", the CCD malfunction manifests as a purple colored screen with various levels of distortion, not black

Nikon coolpix S3- most of the screen is black on shooting mode

I had the same problem with mine. I searched the web and came across this one. My camera had a black screen but everything else worked. I read some of the comments and a few people said to hit it. I hit the camera in the side of my hand a few times and it started to work. Thanks for the info. It sound carzy but it works.

Now working Nikon coolpix

Screen blank

Possibly not as this refers to the image capture device and your appears to be firmware or control button problem But it sure is worth getting on to Canon customer support about it.

Image layering thru lens, imprinting on card in top right corner as small panoramic

Wow, that is strange. Is there a reset button or procedure, like holding power and exe or some other key combo in the manual? I had a C-5050 that would boot to a picture of a girl, not the normal Olympus splash screen, couldnt figure that one out either. Good luck, let me know if you give up on it or need more help..pishta68 at
