Re: broken LCD screen

your answer to this problem is easy. First take the batteries out of the camera, then open the camera ( screws should be in the back) the screen should just pop out of the cover and there is a ribbon cable that connects the screen to the circut board. Gently un-hook that ribbon where it plugs in to the board there might be a slid lock to hold the ribbon in place, it should unlock when you pull the cable out (memorize what position the ribbon is before unplugging). Now the fun part, do the same thing to the other camera, (carefully). To install the new screen, plug the ribbon back into the slot and it should be snug, if not there is a lock on it, gently push it back away from the ribbon ( a little finger pressure). Now, simply put it back together the same exact way you took it apart and don't forget the batteries. Have fun taking pictures...

There is a fuse for the LCD backlight only - if it's blown, you should see something on the display if you look closely as there will be no backlight. If you need help locating the fuse, e-mail me at

Turn on camera but the lcd sceen is black

I tried all the solutions offered on the net and none worked except one. It simply said "hit the camera with the palm of your hand" (when it is on) and the screen will return. I thought, well I have nothing to lose and so I hit it on the side and sure enough the LCD is again working !!! Contacted Canon prior to this and they had no idea but suggested I send it in to be repaired at a cose of $163.50 Australian. Pleasant staff they have, but no help in solving what looks like a common problem of Canon cameras. I will have second thoughts purchasing Canon from here on in.

Turn on camera but the lcd sceen is black

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....

Black LCD screen on camera

Just had the same problem (black display). I moved my hand in front of it and took pictures of things but nothing happened. Then my girlfriend tried to point it to a lamp, and all-of-a-sudden it kinda woke up from a screensaver or something. So weird, but it worked. Perhaps it needs enough light in order to start using the display and lens. I couldn't take any pictures when the LCD was black. So, try pointing it towards a strong light source before you break your camera.
