Hello. First thing...is there *any* display at all such as a number code in the upper right hand corner of the lcd? It will appear as "C:00:00" or "E:00:00", minus the quotation marks. If there is a "C" in front of the numbers, the problem is fixable by you--an "E" means that the problem has to be addressed by a tech. Next, to reset ALL functions back to factory defaults, open the LCD display on the side and locate the small reset button just to the left of the MENU button. Use a pen or pencil (the end of a paper clip works beautifully) and press the button momentarily. Don't use a lot of force to do it--not needed. If this doesn't bring up any display, then there is an internal circuit problem.
Can you see an image if you play back a tape? If so, then the problem concerns the CCD chip or associated circuitry. The ccd chip provides all the video information to the eyepiece and lcd screen in *record* mode. In *playback* mode, the camera acts just like a small VCR. Any video is being pulled from magnetic tape.
Is the camera still under any type of warranty? A CCD chip problem is a major repair and will be relatively costly. Do not repair the camera through a store! Find a reputable repair facility and ship it directly--the cost will be FAR less.(Retail stores take the actual repair quote, half it, and add the half to the quote *you* see.)---Hope I helped you!---Rick

I cannot see anything on my view when on camera mode


If you can view previously recorded tapes and see icons on the LCD, you may have an image sensor (CCD) problem. See this link regarding a Canon service notice about this issue. If you think this is your problem, contact your regional Canon service facility.

I have a Canon Digital XTI. It works great but I can not view anything with the view finder. I can only see my settings. Please help. Thank you, Kendall Hodges


The view finder is the optical device at the top of the camera. Is this what you are referring to? If you are referring to the LCD panel on the back of the camera, Canon's Digital SLR cameras (nor other makers, as far as I know) did not have the option to preview your shot on the LCD before the 2007 models came out. A digital SLR camera is unlike a "point and shoot" camera in this regard.

Canon's current digital SLRs which have the "Live View" option, are the Rebel XSi, the EOS 40D, the EOS-1D MkIII, and the EOS-1Ds MkIII.

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor


Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
