Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
When i turn on my camera my screen is black. It still takes pictures but when i switch it to playback mode they dont appear there either. But i did figure out that when i hold my camera under the light, the screen show up just a little bit letting me do some stuff. Do you know whats wrong. when i review my pictures they are washed out with horizontal lines through them same as above. Exactly!
Its possible the pictures are fine if you download them to the PC.
The fact that if you can see a ghost image on the camera indicates that the inverter has gone on the camera and it need to be repaired.
This can cost a lot of money to get sorted out, so if your happy to snap away and then transfer the pics to the PC then your all good, but if you prefer to see what pic your taking then a repair is eminent, other than that its a new camera.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.
Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.
If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
