LCD Screen blank

I've had this camera for about three years now, hardly used. then one day the screen went blank, with a steady flickering of the screen. tried everything but nothing works, this camers was hardly ever used and never dropped. i'm very disappointed with this canon product, which is now without warranty.

Don't fret! This sounds like a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you worldwide for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. They just fixed my three year old A310 for free last month. Please check the following two links for more info:

Why the screen flickers


I bought three L110's for my department at work a few years ago. Each camera is used to take over 200 pictures on the average work day. I never heard about that problem until today when I went to a presentation by Nikon on there new D810 camera. The expert mentioned that the screen flicker problem has occurred in some Nikon models and that the solution is to go to the Nikon website and download and install updated software for your camera. Search for your camera in the Service and Support section. You will find a link listing all of the models and download the upgrade and instructions there.

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

When it flickers, can you still see the text when the screen goes dark?
May have to use a bright flashlight set right on the display to see
the text on the screen beside where the light sits.
That will tell you if it's the backlight.

You can also look at a grazing angle into one of the edges to see if the
backlight is flickering when the display does.
When it's cold, does it start with a slight pinkish color? That can be
a sign of backlight going bad.
Anything interesting happen when you flex the cable by moving the screen?

I'm not saying it's impossible, but I've never seen software cause
consistent screen flicker. And if the vga port doesn't flicker, sw is
even less likely the problem.

If you bet the odds, you'd bet on a bad display cable.
Won't hurt to try replugging it.

If that doesn't help, then your monitor may be dying....
