    Same problem as others. Worked great until last Friday and suddenly got a black screen with a replace battery pack message. I could view the photos on my card and they looked ok, but cannot get it to take any photos. Several seconds after the replace battery pack message the camera turns off.

Blank screen


Try this...if you can still get into the setup menu, scroll to "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions. If not, remove the memory card and battery...press all the buttons...leave the camera alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. Did that help?

How to re-set date in the camera?


turn on your camera and go to menu. top of the screen you will see 3 camera tabs. choose the 3rd screen with the wrench on the camera. this will take you to what you need to change the date. scroll down the screen till you see 'Date & Time', then open it up by pressing the 'ok' button. You should be seeing a screen that asks you to set format. continue to the month, date and year, then time after you have entered your settings, press ok. after your done, press menu button to return to the viewing screen for picure taking. your camera may go to a blank (black) screen while no action is taken. If this happens, just press your menu key and return to the 3rd tab and proceed with the instructions.

Black screen on canon sd1100 is


Actually, the problem was that the DISP button was pressed causing the screen to turn black to save battery life. Easy fix. Just pressed the DISP button again until the display showed what i was looking at through the view finder.

Blank screen on camera when turned on...cannot take picture


Though there may be an alternate reason, It sounds as though you may be experiencing a failed CCD image sensor with your camera.

Try pressing the display (DISP) button on the back of your camera several times to see if your image returns at any time. One of the three display modes is "off" to preserve battery life. Your problem may be as simple as inadvertently pressing this button into the off mode.

If that doesn't work, try doing a reset and then removing your batteries from the camera for a few minutes, reinstalling them and turning the camera on to test the LCD screen.

If your screen is still black, but you can clearly see pictures taken previous to the problem, and you can clearly see the menu system when you press the MENU button, then you likely have the CCD sensor problem. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to have the camera repaired.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Blank LCD screen on shooting mode, but does show settings. Will not take pictures. Replaying mode works, shows pictures taken before screen went blank. New batteries. What is going on??? Is it...


The Display button manually turns the LCD display on or off to save batteries. If you accidentally had turned the LCD off, It should only take one press of the button to turn it back on and leave it that way. As such, it's not you but the camera. The A570 IS is relatively new. Your camera is likely still under warranty. If so, contact Canon for warranty repair (see the following link):
