Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The display remains black no matter what settings are used. The last time the camera was used was one year ago, since then it's been in the case. The shutter opens when powered up, batteries ok and lens cap is removed.

Display of remaining pictures remains 9999 no matter what size stick is in the camera


If you have a large Gb card and you have set your camera to the lowest resolution, 9999 is the highest the available frame count will go up to. You may well be able to shot more images than 9999 on low resolution. Try setting the camera to the highest resolution and see if the available no. of shots changes. You should also note that the available no. of shots left is only an approximation.

Black screen on my canon S3 Si camera


This sounds like a common image sensor failure. Unfortunately Canon stopped fixing this problem over a year ago. Parts are NLA.

I have a canon digital camera. The display is not working.


The A75 was a great camera, but after about a year of use, many complained of problems such as the one you describe (search on "Canon A75 Black Screen of Death" to see :-).

I believe that for a time Canon was offering replacements, but that was several years ago, so it is likely that this program is no longer available (might be worth a try at canon.com, but don't get your hopes up). The only good news is that you can get a much, much better version of this camera, the Canon A590 IS for just over $100.

White lines appearing on display after picture is taken


I have the same problem, and upon looking into my problem, i recall reading that Sony had used crappy glue in which they attached the CCD to the inner guts of the camera, and when that deteriorates, which doesn't take very long, then your pictures will have lines through them.

I think i remember reading that Sony said they will replace all cameras within 2 years of their manufacture. Call Sony's troubleshooting and support and they may replace it for you.

Hope i helped solve your problem.

Screen is black


This suggests the back light has failed. Depends on the age of the camera -if recent purchase and under warranty send it back to the seller. A reapir I would think for an older camera would be expensive - a new camers is a better bet
