Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't go into picture taking mode.

When I turn camera on, I can see the pictures on the card, but when I switch to the camera mode, there is no image on the screen. So I can't shoot pictures. Am I doing something wrong with the set, menu or other buttons. Very frustrating. Shel

Mode switch has broken off and the camera screen says no image

it probably remained locked on the viewer and there are no images capture stored into the camera ..that's why it says that ....and it must be a way to restore the function of that button cause no matter if you lock it permanently into the the shooting mode its still a issue of getting pics out of it ....most cameras have to be on viewing mode when are plugged on the data cable ...but ..if you can open it and switch it on the mode that allow you to take can always get the pictures from the SD card directly via an card reader ...adapter ( USB) that cost only a few dollars...

My brand new just put batteries in it powershot is displaying NO IMAGE. the lens won't even pop out! what the hell?

LOL, sounds like you're in "picture review" mode. Except that you haven't taken any pictures yet, so there's "NO IMAGE" on your card just yet. To take a picture, you need to put your camera in "camera" mode. Slide that tiny slide switch in the upper right all the way up until it's next to that little red camera. Now take a picture.

Can't turn off/disable optimize image screen- nikon d80

Ok, all you need to do is:

1.Hold the camera normally like you would take a picture.

2.Turn it on and review a picture.

3. While looking at a picture, take your index (pointer) finger and rotate the front "wheel" right under the shutter release button. This switches the viewing mode, and should solve your problem.

Two things to try...
A) If you have a card with some photo's on it then put it in the camera... Will the camera display the photos from the card in view/play mode? If so then the screen is working but the sensor in the camera may have died (the but that captures the image).
B) Try taking a picture with the camera (go through the steps to take one even though you can't see anything on the screen). Then put the memory card in a reader or a friends camera and see if the picture did get taken. If so then the sensor is still okay and the fault may be with the display.

If the display will show images from the memory card but doesn't show anything when in picture-taking mode but the camera does take pictures then the camera has a fault that isn't either the sensor or the LCD. It could then be an electronic failure or a problem with the mode selection switch.

Hope this helps to figure it out.
