Re: Can't see through screen! Everything is orange!

This is a Screen/connection problem Contact the makers web site for repair or replacement. Be aware that some cheaper cameras are considered to be 'disposable' - that is don't get repaired.

When I take my pictures some of fine but alot of them come out with half the picture clear and the other half a weird color like orange, yellow or green. I don't know what is happening and why do some...

i feel your camera needs a proper servicing.
Try reseting your camera to your defaults. If you still get this problem then your ccd/cmos is defective. which will need a proper check by a expert in person.

What does PICTURE ERROR mean? not in manual nor on line

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card as the card has become corrupted. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the picture error message and the card can be used again.

Hi There, If your screen still lights up, sounds like the LCD Panel is cracked.

Striped pictures

The sensor chip on which focused light falls has a failed connection. The image is 'read' via a matrix that is scanned to retrieve the image and one of the paths of this matrix is broken.

As long as the pictures look fine it is something going on with the lcd display.

If it was taking pictures the same, it could be a special effect that is turned on or the CCD is bad. It sounds like the LCD display is bad. Some cameras can be repaired at a reasonable price with a new LCD display.

Have you replaced the batteries in the camera? That might take care of the problem.

Camera will take picture, but the picture is coming out black!!!! Help Please!!!

Dear vera11:

The symptoms you're describing sound like a classic case of having a faiiled CCD image sensor.

First try pressing the display (DISP) button on the back of your camera several times to see if your image returns at any time. One of the three display modes is "off" to preserve battery life. Your problem may be as simple as inadvertently pressing this button into the off mode.

If that doesn't work, try doing a reset and then removing your batteries from the camera for a few minutes, reinstalling them and turning the camera on to test the LCD screen.

If your screen is still black, but you can clearly see pictures taken previous to the problem, and you can clearly see the menu system when you press the MENU button, then you likely have a CCD sensor problem. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to have the camera repaired.

Hope this helps.

Pictures are black

My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?

Canon A520 Everything works, except the button you take pictures with. It wont work.

I need more information about what symptoms you are experiencing. I am going to guess that your shutter is stuck closed. This would cause a blank image to show on the view screen and your captured pictures. The regular icons and text would still display normally. Is this what you are seeing? If not please explain further what is happening and I will respond again with more information. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
