Re: Display is purplish

As Philipp suggests, this 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 cameras warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

I switch my camera on, but the display window remains dark (off). What am I doing wrong?

if the camera have not a specific button to dark the display. is probably that the camera alre faulty. in this case you must prove to make pics, without display. make any pics and look on the meedia card if the camera have registred the pics. if the camera registred the pics. the problem is only into the display. if the camer dont register the pics, the problem is into the lens and ccd.
if the problem is only in to the display. you can look with your exact model to buy the display. on ebay international seller. but you must have a minimum knowledge in eletronic. to change it alone.
the cost of the display its from 20 to 35 euro for this camera. the repairing cost is higher. so you must look if you have convenience to repair the camera. why now you can fiind 12 megapixel camera with 120 euro new. so make your. count. if you want prove to make this job alone please write me and i prove to help you from italy.
ciao paolo

Canon powershot a540 black/web screen display

jvsnype and ygjeff21, have you checked to see if the pistures also come up as blank or distorted (a sure sign of a CCD failure)? If the pictures are OK, then it might be that you accidentally hit the DISP button, or the camera has a loose LCD ribbon cable connector. The reason I would suspect either is that ygjeff mentioned that the LCD would spring to life when he played with the buttons on the back of the camera.

If and only if the camera still takes good pics, and the DISP button has been checked, then would next recommend reseating the LCD ribbon cable into its connector (ALSO ONLY IF THE CAMERA IS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY). The following link may be of some help. Wouldn't recommend going any farther than the first three pictures. You just want to jiggle or reseat the ribbon cable where the LCD connects to the circuit board, nothing else:

Distorted color on image

You might have "color filter" settings. Turn the digital filters off. Here is what manual at p72 says. "You can take pictures using digital filters. The filters consist of color filters such as red, blue and green, a soft filter that produces a fuzzy effect. Color filters Eight colors, black-and-white, sepia, red, pink, violet, blue, green and yellow, are provided for the color filters. When you select a color filter in the Digital Filter mode, the display on the LCD monitor is filtered with the selected color, and the pictures are taken in that color."
