Ecently a small dull black dot has started appearing on my canon power shot A630's lcd screen but when I review the pics taken prior to when I noticed this problem, no dot appears.

1) this is indicative the lcd camera has been faulty.
2) you must replace it.
3) contact your company supplier, and get the parts, you can do it yourself, only need small screwdrivers and common sense.
God bless you

Want to shoot a timed pictures ie, a pic of myself and my sister together and me setting the camera on a timer and getting into the pic...what do I do? Don't have manual with me. I have a Canon EOS 40D

Did you know there are two firmware updates available for your camera? For a timer picture, here are the instructions: 1Press the <o> button. (
2Select either <j> or <l>.
Look at the LCD panel and turn the
<5> dial to select <j> or <l>.
j:10-sec. self-timer
l:2-sec. self-timerN
3Take the picture.
Focus the subject and press the
shutter button completely.
The picture will be taken after the
self-timer delay elapses.
You can check the self-timer
operation with the self-timer lamp,
beeper, and countdown display (in
seconds) on the LCD panel.
Two seconds before the picture is
taken, the self-timer lamp will stay on
and the beeper will sound faster.
Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to
start the self-timer. Doing so will throw off the focus.

The IPboard part no. BN44-0012A is bad. We had to replace 5 monitors with the same problem. If under warranty call 1-800-Samsung for repair or exchange.
