Re: can not see subject to take picture on lcd screen it...

Ive opened the canon powershot 1s IS. id had the problem that the LCD stated black from the beginning.

i opened the lens(is that an english word for all the glasses???) and i saw what the problem was.

to take a picture, a very small (valve??) opens and closes very fast. this valve? was sticked together by something like glue. i removed the glue(smaller than one piece of sand) and the camera works fine.

i'm sorry for my bad english, but i'm dutch.

its easy and done whitin 2 hours.

Nothing or black screen shows up when pic is taken

The problem is with the software in the camera! So take your camera to the nearby service center and do a format of your camera! That will fix your problem. Also check whether there is any problem in ur LCD screen!

Series or type of kodak C643 LCD

the C643 camera can have either type LCD screen. The only way to know for sure as far as I know is to disassemble camera and look. LCD screens are available on ebay for about 20 dollars. the thing to be careful of is make sure the selector knob is in off position when opening case up. there is a front and rear and the rear is the tricky one on account of usb cable port. be careful

Kodak C643 Screen black

One way out of the glare is to use the optical viewfinder (if your camera has one) to preview your image instead of the LCD. Another possibility is to buy a camera that has a backlit LCD.

Kodak C643 black LCD

it is likely the Iris is stuck closed , maybe due to humidity.or the actuator that opens it is kaput.
it will have to be totally dissembled to get to the iris.
if you look into the lens and see the iris leafs you can verify that they stay closed.

White screen on kodak C643 easy share digital camera

This sounds like either a broken LCD screen (they don't have to display the liquid in the display to be broken) or a cable that has partially been disabled.

You can try to open the case and reseat the LCD cable and try that.
