Question about Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Display screen no longer works while taking pictures

Last night some of the kids in our youth group were flipping the display screen back and forth and now it won't show the preview image -- it can't serve as a view finder. But it still shows the image after it's been taken and whenever in play back mode. When the camera is on, unless playing back through pictures, the screen is just black.

Sounds like they accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of the camera. This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time with the camera turned on.

My phone screen went blank after left charging over night


Hello,

There is nothing wrong with your screen, the problem is from the flex that connects your screen to the phone's main board. This flex must have worn out that's why your screen is not displaying any picture.

The problem is common with flip and slide phones. The flex gets worn out as a result of constant opening and close of the flip or slide phone.

I would urge you to replace the flex and I am assuring you that your screen will display picture again. You might also be lucky to find out that the flex is not well fix, that is, it may have loosed contact.

If you cannot change the flex yourself, maybe you should take the phone to a local repairer within your vicinity, so that the flex can be fixed/replaced.

Take care.
