Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

LCD Screen Color is Washed Out and Blue

I dropped by Canon Powershot SD400. Since then the screen turns on with blue background instead of black, and the images are washed out and sort of blue-ish. Can I do anything myself?

My hitachi 53udx10b was supposedly just serviced but the picture is extremely blue. Have tried adjusting picture to no avail. Help.

I am going to tell you a simple thing to do to know what your problem may be.

With the set on turn the color all the way to zero. Go to a channel if you can that is in black and white. What color is the screen?

If the answer is that it is blue in the background whoever serviced the set did not and could have removed front speaker grill and inspection plate behind it; there is a black plastic block with three screen controls (red,green,blue) and 3 focus controls (do not touch the focus ones.)

I suspect if the blue screen is there a slight adjustment of the blue screen down will correct this.

The picture with the color at zero should be black and white or gray. If blue is background color it will also be with color.

This is called gray scale; picture with color off has to be gray or black and white.

Before you rate this solution if you have questions make a comment right here and I will advise you.

the light filter on the blue lcd is fried due to excessive dust and heat. clean it out with canned air and replace the filter. unfortunately, you might have to replace the entire optical engine because benq doesn't sell individual parts for it.

This may sound a bit dumb, but believe me as a tech support specialist, I have seen it happen. If you are trying to print a document, what color do you have set for text? I had a lady who wanted the text to be white on blue on the screen in Word and instead of setting it with a blue background and "auto" text, she set the text as white. White print on a white background (paper) doesn't show up...:-)

"Oily" spots burnt into LCD

Sounds like a cracked LCD. That happened to my S400, and it was pretty evident the glass screen had broken. I bought a new one and installed it myself at a cost of under $40. Having a shop do the repair will cost quite a bit more. If you think this is the problem, do a Google search on "canon s400 lcd screen repair" and you'll find some resources to walk you through the ordering and replacement process.
