Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Digital Display We have owned a Canon Powershot A70 for about 3 years now and have taken many great photos with it. However, the display has failed several times and has been repaired by Canon who admits that their displays were made by another manufacturer. Well, the display is gone again! Can I replace the display?

X-tian--Canon will replace the CCD sensor for free if that's really the problem (see ), but in that case why would Donzoni say Canon had replaced the *display*? Unless he's confusing them, of course. Donzoni--The fact that you say Canon has repaired your display for you leads me to think you're not a fanatical do-it-yourselfer, which is probably a good idea in this case. Disassembling an A70 is a very tricky job, and putting it back together so it works is even trickier (aiyy, those tiny springs!). Not to mention that a new replacement LCD display from Canon would probably cost more than a whole used A70 in good working condition (about $50 on eBay). If Canon won't cover your A70 under the warranty, and it's already failed several times, it might be time to look for a "new" one on eBay or upgrade--I'm very happy with our new A540, though we still use our A70 as a backup.

If you can disassembly the camera and put it back again why not...but the problem is the ccd image sensor if you can buy it in the canon service center...that sensor is located at the center of the lens with a glass,square shape and have many pins..

    i agree of what you said lengoldstein....i think the ccd image sensor that been replace by the canon service to donzini camera is cover again by the batch of defective sensor....or may be the shutter of his camera is always close that why there is no image at the lcd monitor.....usually the flexwire of the shutter is the problem.....so if the cost of replacing of this part or the ccd sensor will cost much as lengoldstein said is better to buy a new camera with a higher resolution...and also difficult to disassemble cause there a alignment at the lens assembly...only a qualified technician can do this job...cause a one wrong gear alignment will broke the assembly....

The date stamp only works in "Postcard" resolution. Press the "Func Set" button, then scroll down to the bottom to select postcard resolution. Then press the menu button. Select the "Camera" menu, then scroll down to the the Date Time Stamp selection to turn it on.

When looking at the display shows wavy lines - same happens when you take a photo. But the display shows previous pictures taken on the card


Many Canon Cameras that were made a couple of years ago have a faulty CCD chip. Canon will repair the problem at no charge regardless if the warranty is expired or not. They will even pay postage to ship it back. I had to send in both my PowerShot SD110 and my Powershot S500 it took about two weeks from the day i sent them in to the day they returned. They handled everything just as a good company should. Contact Canon through their website for more information. Good Luck!

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should 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:

No image display on camera mode


There are different settings. You can view the past photos because you are using the viewer for that, but you have a setting off in the menu. You need to turn on view photo or preview photo after picture taken. I am not sure what it is in the Canon line, but look in your manual for the setting.
