Question about Canon PowerShot Cameras

Display screen of Canon Sx10 IS not turning on

I suddenly stopped being able to see the display on the LCD screen while I can see through the EVF. I used to be able to take videos with the screen turned out at an angle if I was shooting over people's heads in a crowd, but for some reason the LCD does not turn on any more for still/video shots. It had happened once several years ago, & I think I had been able to reset the camera somehow, but I can't just remember what I did. Please help! Thanks!

To the right of the Menu button there is a button marked DISP. Press it twice.

    Thank you! I have done that previously, but should I not be able to see the image in BOTH the LCD & the EVF at the same time?

    No , you switch from one to the other.

    Okay, thanks for your help! Appreciate it.

SOURCE: Canon SD400 LCD screen does not work

I too had the problem (described above) -- of seeing the purplish vertical curtain whenever I looked in my Canon PowerShot S410's LCD monitor.

I contacted Canon, they sent me a prepaid shipping label I could use at my local UPS store; they repaired the problem and then shipped the camera back to me. I received the camera just now and the problem seems to have been resolved.

Thank you, FixYa experts, for identifying the problem and indicating that Canon was fixing it at no charge.

Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!

SOURCE: Canon 500d Screen won't display object to be shot

First of all, the live view mode will work only in creative zones, that is from mode P. P, Tv, Av, M modes. Put the camera into one of these modes and push the Set button that is located behind the camera, amidst the four direction buttons, and you're live! Also note that to autofocus here, you should use the zoom minus button, a button with a star beside it.

LCD Screen doesn't work when it is clicked in (screen facing up) it only shows up on the eyehole. I tried hitting the Display button so many times yet it doesn't work.


A Camera Labs review of this camera, November 2008, states, "If the screen is folded back on itself, the DISP button only switches between the two EVF modes." (EVF = Electronic View Finder.) i.e. it is not affecting the screen at all.
On my Canon 60D with a similar folding screen the same appears to be the case but, if I fold back the screen while it is functioning it works OK.
Also, I noticed that pressing several other buttons on the back of the camera effects changes to the screen. Might be worth trying these on your camera.

My Canon powershot SX10is LCD screen does not work when it is open (extended from the camera). Is there a setting or something I need to change


Press the Disp button near the bottom right of the LCD display housing.

You may need to press it twice to switch the display back to the LCD from the Viewfinder.

Lcd display will not work on canon power shot sx10 is - camera will take pictures and i can review pics on the lcd display but will not show any pictures when trying to take photos. it started this problem...


Of course! You mentioned the beach so maybe salty water or sand got inside the camera. (Salt can interfere with the electrical connections inside the camera and possibly short-circuit.) Send it back for repair to replace any damaged parts you may need. They'll send it back good as new :)

Blank screen


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP (Display) button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save battery power. You could then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn it back on, just the DISP button one more time.

White LCD screen


The LCD connection may be loose or the LCD itself broken. You may need to have a service centre replace the LCD unit.
