Did you accidentally press the DISP button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns the screen back on.

I have the same problem with my AD 750. Powers on, but no display. Pressing the Display does nothing. Any more advice would be appreciated.

Hi my Canon Powershot SD 750 LCD screen stays black when taking pictures, you can't view them either. The only thing that shows up on the screen is the menu functions, you can look through everything...


First try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. If that doesn't help, astuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

I have canon sd 750. its lcd gets black. Shows pictures etc but view finder remains dark. display is zz. what to do?


Look for DISP or DISPLAY button in the lower-right corner of the back of your camera. Press this once while the camera is turned on. The DISPLAY button manually turns the screen on and off. This is to save battery power for extended use. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place.

Dropped my Canon SD 750, will turn on and lens will move, but the display screen is black & won't show anything- is it unfixable?


Is the screen cracked from the impact of being dropped? It may be worth it to have the LCD screen replaced or just checked in case the LCD ribbon came loose during impact. I would probably contact the guys in the link I posted above and have them check it out. This issue is most definitely fixable though!

Camera turns on, lens goes out, but it is black, see nothing through it or on lcd screen (yes, cover is off). There is no error messages, still takes pictures but just black. Can view previous pictures on...


It coud be a very common IRIS/Shutter stuck problem...this has been reported on lot of S3 IS & S2 IS cameras... just search for this on web and you'll find a temporary solution also (related to taking battery out in the middle of taking picture during a long exposure (15" in Tv mode), but for more permanent fix you need take it back to Canon service center

I have a canon sd 750 have been using it for 4 months now, but yesterday the screen went black i can see the old picturs i took but cant take any new pictures all the new pictures i take are black the LCD...


YOUR PROBLEM MAY BE SIMPLE. IF YOU ARE USING THE ORIGINAL MEMORY CARD THAT CAN INSTALLED IN YOUR CAMERA THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT THIS CARD IS JUST FULL AND HAS NO ROOM FOR ANY OTHER PICTURES. THE STANDARD CARD FOR THE SD-750 IS A 32MB-SD MEMORY CARD THAT WILL HOLD APRX. 20 PICTURES AT A NORMAL JPEG 3072 X 1728 MPIXEL RATING. YOU MIGHT TRY EITHER DOWNLOADING THE ONBOARD PICTURES TO CLEAR THE MEMORY, OR INSTALL A NEW HIGHER CAPACITY SD CARD. I WOULD RECOMMEND A 4 GIG CARD. THIS SHOULD TAKE CARE OF YOUR PROBLEM. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, PLEASE REPLY TO ARCLIGHT 1217. GOOD LUCK! IT THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE VOTE! THANKS!
