Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Canon Powershot sd750 screen completely not working


If you're up to doing the replacement yourself, you can order a new LCD assembly here. If not, you can take the camera to a reputable camera shop and have a trained professional do the replacement. A third alternative is to buy a new camera to replace the five-year-old SD750.

The screen is black but it will take a picture. What is the problem?


This sounds like you may have the screen deactivated. Try removing the battery and re-inserting then put camera back on and press the playback button. After switch to record mode and press the up arrows to see if the screen comes back on. If the screen still does not work but the camera still takes pictures and the pictures are actually exposing then the problem is with the lcd. You may need to replace the LCD. If the pictures are also coming out black then the problem is with the shutter inside of the lens unit. Both problems are repairable, but usually are done at Canon Service center. Photo Tech at www.phototech.com is the authorized service center for Canon. I have used them in the past and they are Canon trained.

Good Luck

My screen went black and I can't take photos. all other funtions work.


try to take a picture even when you do not see anything on its screen. If the picture taken shows up afterwards, you will just need to adjust the brightness for the LCD.

Screen is black


Eagle 23: Press the "Disp" button and your LCD screen will turn on right away.

nazmil_mj: Can you take pictures or are they totally black as well? If you can only take black pictures then your LCD screen is fine and your CCD is bad or your aperture is stuck. Either of these means you need your lens replaced.

Don't bother asking a store for help (though you can if you like) they will tell you it's not fixable or will just send it to Canon and charge you $175 for the repair.

We are an affordable digital camera repair business, we can replace your lens for about $75!

My camera's screen wont turn on all the way...what is wrong??


Hi

Can you see menus and play back old pictures? If so, press the "Disp" button and your LCD will turn on.

If you can't take pictures because they turn out solid black, then your LCD is fine and you need a new lens.

Hope this helps.

LCD is acting weird


hi,
If the soda has gone inside the camera then you need to get it serviced or else the camera itself would die soon.If its not then u can go ahead and salvage the screen.

Turn on camera but the lcd sceen is black


I tried all the solutions offered on the net and none worked except one. It simply said "hit the camera with the palm of your hand" (when it is on) and the screen will return. I thought, well I have nothing to lose and so I hit it on the side and sure enough the LCD is again working !!! Contacted Canon prior to this and they had no idea but suggested I send it in to be repaired at a cose of $163.50 Australian. Pleasant staff they have, but no help in solving what looks like a common problem of Canon cameras. I will have second thoughts purchasing Canon from here on in.
