Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD "connection cable" defective?

Hello, I would like to purchase a Canon S3 IS second hand , but cannot estimate if I will be able to solve the problem myself, I mean :
When moving the LCD, the screen turns into white or black (more often white) or some lines appear in the screen (horizontally ) very fast and on different places .

Anyhow, something is wrong with (i guess) that small cable which is leading inside into the camera from the LCD .
I first have to buy it before I can start "fixing" it ,....;-) if I ever will get it back into its original state ...;-))
Any suggestions , Thank you all.
kind regards,
Pat

I just recieved a new dell e6410 and it flickers.


Hello,

When the screen flickers, the possible causes are that

  1. The LCD is defective
  2. The cables are faulty
You can in this case check if the cables are well connected to the board. If the connections are OK, then the LCD needs to be replaced.

But as you have mentioned that the computer is new, the best thing to do is to bring it back where you have purchased it so that it can be repaired or exchanged.

I crushed the screen of my Canon Powershot SD450 camera. Pls. estimate cost of screen repair. Is it on the screen thats cracked cozi can still take photos but cant see them.


Many screen breaks happen to ruin the LCD from visibly displaying a picture. On some cameras, the screen is attached to the back plate of the camera and are very easy to replace with a new one. Some screens are attached to a video pc board and may ruin the board from displaying anything. Your best bet is to have it repaired professionally by one of our top repair providers and get an estimate first. I have repaired many good digital cameras with a LCD replacement, but I also had to purchase a broken used one for parts because new parts became to expensive to repair the one with a broken LCD. BTW: all digital cameras contain many PC boards and if you can still take pictures means the boards that control your lens, motors, CCD, and I/O boards are still intact and functional. Hope this helps - fotobean

Shooting mode shows nothing.


Hello,

I just had this issue with my camera (my 15 year old son solved it for me ;-) ).

The viewfinder was active in "record" mode and the LCD was "active" because you could see a little back light but no image. The "playback" mode would let me review pictures in the LCD though so I know it is capable of showing information.

If you push the display key/button a couple of times you can see the picture move from the viewfinder to the LCD and have just a picture and or a picture and information.

So try setting the camera to "record" mode (lens comes out) and then push the "display button" which is on the back of the camera just to the right of the LCD on the lower right side several times and see if the LCD starts to work.

It could be that somehow the display button was pushed by mistake.

Everything works on my camera, but the screen is black all the time...Like the lcd has gone out or something...


Most likely you have a problem with the LCD display. The displays are very susceptible to breaking if the camera has been dropped. The backlight could be defective too. I have replaced many of these displays in cameras. try to get an estimate to have the display replaced. You'll probably find that the estimate will be fairly high. The displays are not too hard to replace. You might try contacting the parts department at Canon and see if you can purchase the LCD display and repair the unit yourself. I wrote and posted an article on this site on how to replace the displays in Kodak cameras. The prodedure will be fairly similar on most any type of digital camera.

Good luck!

Canon S3 no display on LCD screen


I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

I tried their solutions twice and it WORKS. My S3 is working fine now.
