Sounds like the LCD's ribbon cable is not securely attached to its connector. If the camera's no longer under warranty, you'll need to open the camera, remove and then reseat the LCD ribbon cable into its connector. If you decide to attempt repair, remember its ultimately your responsibility, as things can and sometimes do go wrong. Also go no further than the first three pictures in the following disassembly guide.

Follow the LCD ribbon cable to its connector on the circuit board. Look for lift pins or a lift bar on the connector that you lift with your fingernail, or the flat edge of a screwdriver, to release the cable. After you release the cable, inspect the end of the cable to make sure its clean, then reinsert it in the connector, and close the lift pin/bar to secure it. Reassemble the camera, and try it out.

And finally, there is a risk of electrical shock inside all digital cameras with a flash. Recommend reading the following before opening any camera:

No picture on back of camera 'screen'


Hi Karen_Earl I can't believe that this advice I found here todayon this site actually worked !! just passing it on. I got the evil white LCD screen today and then found this advice here: turned it off - I smacked the top of the camera afew times and when I turned it back on it worked fine!! who would have thought there was such an easy, instant and cheap solution to what I thought was an expensive or terminal problem! Thanks to Jada 1234 for posting this last year! !

Canon S2 IS - LCD screen is white after taking an outside picture


the image is all white or has lines through it.Definitely sounds like a repair issue, and has been a previous problem with the camera in the past. There is a defect in the sensor of the camera, and happens quite frequently in this model. I would try and contact Canon about it, and see if they'll repair it for free. If not, its probably going to cost more than the camera is worth to repair it.

Black screen when camera is turned on


hi.. I also had this problem with canon ixus 75. i took it to the service center and they just knocked its lens(lightly) when it was on ON mode, then suddenly the screen started working.
But he said that u should use it on regular basis for few days and if the problem occurs again. then we will have to change the sensor, I think he said sensor or something like that.

Might as well send it in and see what they say. If nothing else they might offer you a trade up option to a newer model. They can be reached at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.

White Screen


I have Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital camera with same problem. I can almost guarantee this is not a firmware problem. I went mountain biking a few months ago and take pictures. I take out camera and turn on. I get lines then white screen. I banged on camera and fixed it. Later a few weeks ago I turn it on and white screen. i beat this thing and get bad menu selection screen for a moment then white again. It takes pictures well and talk to computer no problem but no LCD picture. I thinking it is loose connection for LCD. Send it for repair or if you seek adventure try to fix it yourself!
