SOURCE: Blank LCD works but wont display

I have a Canon powershot A85 camera, and it works fine, but I get no picture in the LCD screen. It does take pictures and I can look at the pictures after I have taken them. I don't know if you live in Australia, if you do ring Canon on 131383. A lot of Canon camera's and also a lot of other digital camera's all have a problem with the CCD Chip. My brother has a Canon A75, he has had is for many years, and they fixed it free of charge, because it is a problem the camera has, so not something we done. Look on the internet and you will find a lot of info on it, also that it will be fixed free of charge. I also found the same information on a lot of other digital camera's, so ring Canon and find out, I hope this helps you. Kind Regards Marion

SOURCE: LCD monitor does not show image you are focusing on....

The camera is a Single Lens Reflex. It is not possible to use the LCD as a viewfinder. Canon answers that question here: CanonUSA

Try connecting it to a computer and then turning on the camera. For some reason that fixed it for mine.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot has black LCD screen

Best Solution worked for me?!?!?. Not sure if following the instructions got the screen to come back, but it did come back. I just flipped it over to movie messed with the settings and then open up the battery door which turned off the camera. Closed the door, Flipped to photo and turned it back on and it workd. This is the second PowerShot that I have had, current SD750 and an old S230, to do this.

How do I fix akai TV model #lct2785ta? TV screen remains blank and black, after I power it on.


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.

Solution for "my laptoop seems to want to boot but when is is done booting the screen turns black and remains that"


If the laptop appears to boot up and you can't see an image on the screen, you need to determine if the screen is faulty or the video card.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, power up the monitor first and then boot up the laprop. If you get a normal video image on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is with the LCD screen.
If you don't get an image or POST information, then the LCD screen could be faulty or the laptop didn't boot up.
Please get back to me with the results of your tests and any error messages etc. so I can advise further.

Sony a100 distortion dots - Im getting several


If these are single pixels on the LCD screen, they are normal. From pg. 8 of the user's guide:

"The LCD monitor is manufactured using extremely high-precision technology so over 99.99% of the pixels are operational for effective use. However, there may be some tiny black points and/or bright points (white, red, blue or green in color) that constantly appear on the LCD monitor. These points are normal in the manufacturing process and do not affect the images in any way. "

This may also be helpful.

"images may trail across the LCD monitor in a cold location. This is not a malfunction. When turning on the camera in a cold location, the LCD monitor may become temporarily dark. "

This can be the result of a broken LCD.
This kind of problem can be an internal disconnection of some cable.
Does any of the lites come on on the camera?
can you make the lens work when it starts?
If the camera appears to start in any way, you may be able to connect the video cable to a monitor or TV, and see what it happening.
It could also be that the monitor button was accidentally hit, and thus you have no LCD readout. That button will make the screen black if it is in the wrong position.

LCD Monitor on ,and the Electronic Viewfinder turned off


If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.
