Question about Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera

Black screen hi, the view screen on my IXUS 700 stays black when I am trying to take photos. The funny thing is I can still take photos and view them on the screen when I playback, do you know what could be wrong?

Same suggestion as the one above, the same happened to me for about half an hour and then I realized I had pressed 'display' (DISP on the back, bottom right) and it turns the screen on and off.

Did you try pressing the DISP button while trying to take pictures? It turns the display on and off.

It wont focus and the photo is blurred


If the camera is showing a black or distorted screen when set to photo, and photos that are taken with the black screen also show up black or distorted, then this would likely be a CCD imager failure, a common occurrence for your model camera.
If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.Please check this linkfor more info.

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 95IS camera.. For some reason, when I attempt to take a photo, the LCD screen isn't displaying what is actually in view? In movie mode it comes up on the screen but when i flick it...


Ah yes! you have pressed the display button. Turn the camera on and you see the icons in the display, look for the Disp button and press it, the display will cycle through its modes icons, black, image and icons.

LCD screen black when photo being taken


Hi!
Have you tried pushing the button first under the mode dial? It changes view mode, just above the MENU button?

I dropped my IXUS 70. Display screen has black section.


You have a bad CCD. The CCD is like film, it is what the light hits that actually convert an image to a picture. This is a repair as a rule that is more costly than what your camera may be worth.
