Hi there,

Unfortunately it sounds like a hardware problem.
Just to make sure, let's reset the camera.

Take the battery out, leave it out for 24 hours.

Put it back in, turn on the camera, and see if it works.

If not, it is indeed a hardware problem, and you have no choice but to send it in to be repaired.

Hope I helped!
Tom

After assembly camera lcd displey is still off


Perhaps in disassembly pressure on the LCD cracked the crystal display with will cause a rich black screen. If the camera has both internal and LCD displays, perhaps the switch is set to the eyepiece? My lumix will shut off the LCD and turn on the eyepiece to save battery. Check wires to that switch.

Canon powershot only boots in playback mode


You could try to help the lens coming out if you hear the motor trying to. Or hold the camera with the lens downwards to let gravity help as well. Hope that will help. Or the lens mechanism will be faulty and the whole lens needs to be replaced. But such a repair might not be worth it because of the costs and the value of the camera.

Out of focus


Sounds like the camera is trying to focus if you hear sound when pressing the shutter halfway down or zooming. If the noise is a scraping or grinding sound, you might have debris stuck between the cracks of the lens and the camera body. This happened to me after i dropped my canon sd550 on the beach just once and it never recovered. Next to water sand has got to be one of a camera's worse enemy. Also, the lens might be cocked a bit which would prevent the camera from focusing and zooming smoothly. Try gently adjusting the the lens. Sometimes the slightest imperfection in the lens will throw everything off. Good luck!
