Question about Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Photo screen problems

When I turn on my camera, instead of being able to view what is in the viewfinder, the back screen is mainly dark with a few white/pink horizontal streaks...they move about, and sometimes are not there at all - just black. Do you know what's going on? It worked fine recently.

The lcd screen is black with white and pink flickering lines- will pick up light/dark changes, but no image.

    I have had the same problem;recently, the LCD screen is black with some pink horizontal lines. I can still see pictures to delete; but not to take any. How do I get this fixed?

    The LCD screen is black with light pink horizontal lines. I can't take a picture but can view them to erase.

This definitely sounds like a defective CCD imager. 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 the following two links for more info:

What is a small dark area appears on viewfinder and photos?


is it only the view finder or does it appear on the photo as well because if it the view finder then it is the screen and if it is on the photo as well then its most likely the lense and once you have deterined this then you can know if it is just dirty or if the screen needs replacing

CANON SD1000 VIEWFINDER SCREEN WON'T COME ON


Do you have the user's manual? There should be a menu option to turn 'live-view' on and off. This option is to save battery power when not needed (if using the viewfinder only).

No image is available to view on the lcd screen canon ixus85is


Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.

I think there is a small button on the back of the camera near the bottom that turns the viewfinder off and on I think. It should be in the manual.
It might have gotten bumped while in the bag.

The Digital Rebel XT operates as SLRs have operated for half a century. You view through the viewfinder to take a picture. Only the more recent dSLRs have a Live View capability which lets you use the screen on the back instead of the viewfinder.

The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.

I realize this probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

When the camera is turned on view window is not lit up viewing is dark and grey hard to focus but still takes a good picture?


Do you mean the viewfinder or the lcd-screen?
The Nikon D80 does not have a 'live-view' mode to watch the picture you're about to take on the LCD-screen. It's a semi-professional camera not to be used like a standard 'point-and-shoot' digital camera.
If it is the viewfinder that's out of focus, try adjusting the dial to the right of the viewfinder. It might also be that your internal mirror doesn't get powered (in this case you're unable to see the focus areas). In the last case you will have to get the camera serviced by Nikon.

Olympus E520 digital slr. Only auto setting is working? On other settings, live-view goes dark(?).


SLR cameras are meant to be used with the viewfinder, not live view. Live View on SLR's is a luxury that point and shoot users have come to expect, sadly. I suggest you start using the viewfinder and disregard the live view altogether, since it doesn't always give you an accurate representation of what the photo will turn out like, and it consumes battery power at a ridiculous rate.
