If you opt to perform the repair yourself, it could cost as little as $50. You have two options for finding a replacement screen, buy the new screen from the net or a second hand nonworking camera (but good screen) from eBay.

have a look here for instructions on how to replace the screen

Many screen breaks happen to ruin the LCD from visibly displaying a picture. On some cameras, the screen is attached to the back plate of the camera and are very easy to replace with a new one. Some screens are attached to a video pc board and may ruin the board from displaying anything. Your best bet is to have it repaired professionally by one of our top repair providers and get an estimate first. I have repaired many good digital cameras with a LCD replacement, but I also had to purchase a broken used one for parts because new parts became to expensive to repair the one with a broken LCD. BTW: all digital cameras contain many PC boards and if you can still take pictures means the boards that control your lens, motors, CCD, and I/O boards are still intact and functional. Hope this helps - fotobean

Our schools Canon PowerShot SD450 memory card has no images or videos on it but the camera says memory full...help.


Make sure that the card is 2GB or smaller, the camera only supports SD not SDHC so it won't recognize a card larger then 2GB. If it's 2GB or smaller format it within the camera and then you should be good to go.

The lcd screen is broken, I want to get it repaired. Where do I send it, and or what is a cost estimate?


They don't really repair it. They charge you more than $150 and send you a factory-refurbished replacement.

Broken screen


If the camera is fully functional other than the screen, then yes the LCD screen can be replaced, you can order the part yourself from a Canon dealer if you wanted to do the job, or let them handle the repair with an estimate.

You need to install the drivers for your camcorder, before you conncet your camcorder to your PC.

The drivers are in the CD which came with your camcorder. follow these steps

SD450 all the taken pictures are bright white, but video mode still works


Sounds to me like your auto white balance is on the fritz.

First thing I would do is reset the camera. This is a fairly easy procedure which involves either going into your setup menu and choosing "reset," holding down the menu key for 5 seconds, or, removing the batteries for a few minutes. It may be that the firmware loading got corrupted and the camera just needs to be "rebooted," which is something that turning it on/off won't accomplish. But after which, you should have the camera reset to factory default settings.

Another tip is to go to Canon's website and look for firmware updates. Download and install them.

If that doesn't work, see what happens on the various other settings like cloudy, daylight, tungsten, etc. Then try setting a custom white balance.

If all else fails, you may be looking at a servicing/repair and with the average repair costing $180, if your warranty is expired it may cost more to repair than it's worth. The rule of thumb is that if the estimate for repair is north of 50% what you paid for it, you're better off taking that money and buying a newer and upgraded model.

The website name is: Darntoothysam com then search by "SD450"
