Question about Canon PowerShot G2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannon G2 My display screen on my cannon g2 is acting squirly. It will only become visible if I open it and tilt it at an odd angle. Unfortunately if I'm taking pictures I can't see the screen with the angle it has to be at to show the display. Is there a simple fix I can do or is my camera fubar? Please help. Thanks, Erin

A Fubar - whats does that mean - but your camera looks like it is one. A new camera I suspect is the next thing to buy But check Canon customer support- they may have a remedy for 'Fubars'

Cannon SD 750 - when i try to take a picture a black screen appe

Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Cannon A530 View screen has gone blank

Usually this is beacause you press the button "visible", all camera have this button to choose the visible model of the LED, you can turn off it to save power to take more photos by view sight from the small sight window above the screen.

Cannon G2 battery will not charge and camera does not work with a new battery.

You will have to put a small spacer on top of your battery. This will give the battery contact. Finally, you VPEC-T700 AND simular camera will charge an work. e-mail me if this works.

Canon Power Shot S21s screen is black

Hey birdstrike,
According to the manufacturer there are two options. You can try pressing the display (DISP.) button, and if that doesn't work you are probably going to have to get it serviced by an authorized service center. There is a know problem with the CCD sensor on this camera and other model cameras that causes a malfunction when the camera is exposed to heat or humidity. Canon is covering this repair, and I have included a link below to the instructions on what to do.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

G2 PowerShot Power Problem

When you're charging the camera, make sure the power switch is set to OFF. We've run into the same thing- we could plug it in for days, but it won't charge at all if the power switch is on.

Hope that helps.
