Re: LCD monitor


Sounds like your backlight may be out, unless you're still able to see a faint image when the LCD is "black"...?

If you can still see a faint image of what your camera is pointed at, I would assume your LCD is bad. In which case you could purchase a new one on for ~$60 or have them do it for you for ~$85.

Could be a problem with the CCD circuitry. You will need to get it serviced, I'm afraid.

Monitor problem.

This may be intentional. Some higher end cameras don't use viewfinders to take pictures, just to review them.  
In looking up your camera, it appears that you *can* use the LCD to take pictures.
My guess is that the camera's set up to shut off the LCD when you get the camera close to your eye, to take a picture.  Try taking a picture with the view finder from farther away from your face.
It's probably a safety feature so you don't go blind from the light on the LCD.

Black LCD monitor on Powershot S410

that is not a malfunction, if the "display" button is pressed, the LCD turns off, (black), but if the mode switch is rotated to movie or panorama, it comes back on but will go black again if switched into the other 2 modes. when in one of the 2 modes that show black, simply press "display" and the LCD will come back on.

FYI "GURU", the CCD malfunction manifests as a purple colored screen with various levels of distortion, not black

When Zooming picture it produces blurred or fuzzy picture

This is when zooming through your camera LCD I presume? For small screens usually banding and pixelation is common, if this happens also when the picture is zoomed in on a larger monitor like on your computer then the resolution you set for your camera is low. You can check for the camera setting and increase the resolution from for example 1024x768 to a much higher value and the fuzinnes (blur) will disappear altogether...

Problems with the LCD monitor

You've probably got something as simple as a ribbon cable loose in the camera. Beware though, dismantling is a serious task unless you have experience. Amazingly the CCD is often connected in such a simple, analog-esqe, way that disconnecting it doesn't cause an error, just a black screen.
