Question about Canon PowerShot A640 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD screen is very dark, Pictures taken are underexposed

I have had this camera for about 2 years, no problems until about a month ago. When I noticed the images on the LCD screen where very dark and underexposed. Also when viewing the pictures the same issue. Now at times the screen will be completely dark and no image will show after taking picture. I have changed the batteries, CF card no change. When looking at the histogram on the camera it shows the photos are under exposed. I took it to Pictureline and was told that this was just typical of this type of camera, but I think if it was typical it would have been happening all along. Just need to know how to fix or if I should send it into Cannon to be fixed. I am having the same issue. Did you ever find the solution?

Not an unusual problem for this camera (I have one). You can find the LCD screens on Ebay for around $20. If you Google how to replace the LCD screen on YouTube, you can find a video of how to do it. It's not hard. :)

Dust stuck under glass on the lcd screen of my d60


If you purchased your D60 new, you could sent it in to Nikon for cleaning but personally, I'd wait a while if it's not affecting the camera's functions. If you need warranty work within the first year, you can send the camera in for that work, and they'll clean under the LCD while servicing the camera.

No preview image. Black screen LCD


The problem is not with the LCD or the camera - You have got it set to ecomony / power save mode. Fixable through camera settings.

If the pictures show up normal on the computer then the back light for the LCD is going bad.
