Question about Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH / IXUS 800 Digital Camera

Open Question

Screen is black when I want to take a picture, though the rest of the camera seems fine. No image appears on the disk. Before the screen went black images began to degrade so they looked wildly overexposed.

SOURCE: camera showing/taking distorted images

According to many respected sources with far more expertise than myself, the symptoms you are describing also fall within the realm of Canon CCD failure. In Canon's Service Notice: CCD Image Sensor Advisory, they outline the most common symptoms (distorted images, LCD showing only a black screen, etc.). They have conveniently limited the description to the bare minimum. More symptoms of the failing CCD include: pictures appearing on LCD show up with severe color variations (pink-purplish or green tint), colored "streaks" or "lines" throughout pictures, and wavy distortions in image. Most of these symptoms include the color variations, but not always. The lines or waves can appear in any direction and with varying degrees of severity. Some LCDs do not go black, but turn totally purple. Here is a link to a very informative article that should clear up any questions you might have.
Digital Camera Repair Blog

If nothing else, call the Canon Customer Support Center at 1-800-828-4040. They will ask questions to identify whether or not you are having the same symptoms as described in the Product Advisory. I have been through this twice, and both times they were very nice and very helpful. Even if you don't qualify for the free repair, it didn't cost a thing to find out.
I hope this has been helpful.

SOURCE: Camera overexposes on daylight and recorded images have hoizontal striping

Afraid I tried that already, I have tried everything. It's certainly a mechanical fault.

Luckily I found I have a two year guarantee and it was bought 25/06/06 so I'm just in time to send it off! Found the documents two days ago. Phew...

SOURCE: Image blacked out on LCD and can not see image in view finder

Try this, it may or may not work. Insert the Video cable plug in and out of its slot a few times. The cable when inserted turns the screen off. But sometimes corrosion can build up on the internal plug switch, also causing the screen to turn off. Inserting and removing the cable a few times can sometimes knowck off this corrosion.

Camera screen is completely black when I turn camera on - can't even view pictures on memory - flash, etc. seems to be working.


Seems as though your LCD screen is broken, if the rest of the camera is working. Try PhotoTech Repair Service. They are in NYC, and they are authorized on most camera models. They have a turnaround time of approximately one week.

Why can I not see anything on my screen??


Two possibilities. 1. try this - look along the screen from the side. Can you see shadowy images? If yes, the back light has gone. If Nothing is seem then a connector possibly has come adrift. Try gently squeezing and tapping the camera near the base in the region on the screen- you may get it back in. There will be no repair option though if all else fails - new camera time.

Digital Camera Malfunction


mine just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I had downloaded pixes to the computer, went outside to take picture and it started acting up. strange lines appear on the screen, but the codes are all there, and you can view the pictures that are on the card. no, the card is not full, the batteries are fine. I think it has a virus built in to start trouble so we will go buy a new one!
