Canon PowerShot Dropped: Blank Screen

Hi All,
 
I have a Canon PowerShot S1 IS. I happened to drop it on floor (in my defence, on a soft floor :-)).
 
Now it does not work anymore. When i switch it on, it shows the blank screen. If I take a photo, it captures the image but all blank (black). So basically I can’t take any photos anymore.
 
Has anybody faced such problem; any remedies?
 
Additional Information: All other functions like erase, etc. do work well and appear properly on the screen. I also can see the Canon logo when i turn on the camera. I guess that means that the LCD display is working properly.

For Ravi, this definitely sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/canon-digital-cameras-showing-black.html

Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110
By the way, don't tell Canon that you dropped the camera. Sounds like the CCD imager was about to go bad anyway, and the drop just accelerated this.

I have dropped my camera and it just shows a plain white screen.


Only the way is replacing the screen. Your screen is damaged after drop down. So please visit service center. Thanks.

Re Camera


If it also takes blank pictures, sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Don't know if dropping had anything to do with it. But if it's a defective CCD, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.

Blank black screen for my canon powershot S1 IS digital camera


This is a common problem with S1 IS and it is caused by faulty CCD sensor. Note that you can playback captured images without any problem but in capture mode all you get is blank screen. Will have to go to Canon but note that Canon repairs these models free of charge when it is the CCD sensor that stops working.
