Question about Canon PowerShot S70 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White screen similiar to other camera listed 10/17

I paid too much for this camera to give it a whack so I'm hoping there is another solution.
It hasn't been exposed to extreme cold or heat.  Screen is all white except there is a bug looking thing, lol.  We don't have bugs here thank goodness so I'm hoping it's something else.

Menu, display and view will not come up.

Thanks so much in advance!!

    I am having the same issue. Canons support is horrible. They want me to pay to have it shipped to them (since it is out of warranty). Plus they can not even give me a ball park as to how much it would cost to fix it. Does anyone know if there is a way to reset the camera manually? The firmware reload wont work because I can not see the screen to actually do the update. Any help would be great.

    We've had 10 of these cameras here in our college photo lab and two of them have gone bad, with this same problem. That's a pretty high failure rate. They still take pictures and they do have an optical viewfinder so they are "useable" but you can't check the settings and there's no way to see the photos without taking the card out (or hooking it up to a computer). Hey, it's just like using a film camera!

Change the cf card. Sometimes " factory " workers mess with the card.

I have a vertical red line running down my screen and this translates into a white line down all of my photos


Clean the camera lens following the lens cleaning instructions found inside the accompanying manual. If the problem stays then the problem is with the camera sensor (CCD or CMOS). Sensor can be replaced from a camera repair shop.

My nextar p3 freezes up


Sounds like the sensitivity is whacked...can you hear the type sound. Mine does this sometimes and I solve it by using 2 thumbs and constantly push the settings icon, on each side. It will bring up the x for sensitivity...using the stylus tap gently and then twice to set. Hope this is what you were looking for.

I had the same thing happen and by searching around for a solution today I came across is easy fix - give the camera a little "whack". It worked like a charm for me and several other people with the same issue. The issue was on this site but I can't find the exact one to link it. I hope it works for the rest of you - other people have paid the $100 to get it fixed, try this first!
If that doesn't work contact canon and see if they will honor your problem according to this advisory :http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=10468&keycode=2112&id=48264

Viewing screen goes all white and mode select flashes on


This seems to be a commonn problem for Sony and has been addressed several times in this forum: http://www.fixya.com/support/t119207-view_finder Please read all the solutions - basically, looks like the problem is with a loose connection and the fixes range from cleaning the contacts to giving a whack to the camera!
