    I was using my Canon A75 Powershot last night and everything was fine. Tonight I go to use it and the display won't come on. Doesn't matter if I'm trying to take a picture or view them either way I have no display. I've pressed the display button and that did nothing. Everything else appears to be working fine.

Only screen is the garmin logo with the battery charge icon. When power button is pressed another icon appears for 20s: a picture of the garmin unit linked to a charger then back to the first screen.

Don't know if this will help but it might be worth trying, especially if you just did a software update. I have a 520 and it gets frequent software updates. After an update it ends up just showing the Garmin screen and seems to be bricked because nothing else works - even the off button doesn't work. The solution is to just let it sit showing the Garmin screen for five or ten minutes so it can process and load the new software which seems to take a long time. It eventually opens onto the main screen.

In shoot mode screen is 3/4s black no view

If you can see the normal icons on the LCD but not an image, you probably have a bad image sensor (CCD). See this link for your options.

Hi My cordless phone does not receive or make calls anymore. I have checked and everything seems to be working OK. There is a small icon that appeared on the screen ,like a battery,, and is all black

The battery indicator on the handset tends to be misleading. You may need to replace the battery, or if the phone is under a year old, try charging over night. Simply unplug from the phone jack, leaving base plugged into power.

Dead LCD - is there a fix?

Understand how you feel, I love my A75 too. But forgive me if this seems obvious, but did you try pressing the DISP button on the back of the camera with the camera turned on? If so, next have you tried downloading your pictures to view them on your computer? Are they also black like your screen? If so, the problem may be a defective CCD imager. Canon should then fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 200a/300a/400/450/500

No display at all. But able to take pictures with Canon A75

Sounds like you might have accidentally turned the display off. Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once on the back of your camera.

No pictures recorded/black screen

it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.
