    I can record in video mode and only getting voice playback but no images on still shot or video- display is also not showing - black screen. I can reset from menu as this shows on display whatever I have chosen- problem is I cannot take pictures or see video at all- I have tried taking out battery and reformatting memory card etc and even manipulating the lens gently with my hands.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Especially when you mentioned voice but no picture for video. If so, Canon will fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

How do i shut off the recoreding


This is an odd question. I think you mean, how do I stop recording a video, so I can take pictures. After you switched on the camera, you press the shooting mode button (camera logo). then on the left of the display you see four logos. Your camera is on the forth logo from the top (FilmCamera logo)
Tap on the display, on the top (camera) logo, to enter the picture taking mode.
It is all in the manual on page 26.
When you get more experienced, the same screen can guide you on to more complex modes, so you also can improve pictures when you meet extreme situations. In the auto mode 99 percent of the shots will be good.

Turn camera off and on again


Can you come into the menus? Just to check you did not change anything? Sometimes the monitor or display stays black in record mode, because the camera was put in power save mode. In the manual you can find hoe to switch it on again. Has to do, with what you want to see during record mode. Just the image, image with info, sometimes with a grid and then display off.

On picture taking mode, screen is black but can still take pictures


Please provide more detail about your problem.

Does the screen play back the pictures ok but not during record mode? Or is it off all the time and you used a computer to review the shots that were taken?

Check the basics listed below:

1. The screen may be switched off.
Press the display button on the back while the camera is on. This toggles the display setting between various settings such as Off/ On / Info. Keep pressing the button to try the aternate modes, it just goes round and round to 2 -3 different modes.


2, Check that the monitor brightness setting is set to medium at least in the menu's.

3. If the problem is only affecting recording then check that the main record settings are correct for the type of scene you are taking. For example don't use Beach, Snow, Candle or manual with a high shutter speed while taking regular daylight shots with minimal lighting.

. 4. If the LCD display has a hardware issue you could connect the camera to a TV using the video output jack and look at it that way. Then you'll know if the built-in LCD is ok or not.

5. Having a damaged or stuck video output jack COULD cause this problem also since that circuitry is designed to automatically shut off the built-in LCD display when you connect a video cord to it. Note that having a video cable plugged in to the video output jack would shut off the display also. Such as when you have it connected to a TV.

Camera turns on fine. I could view picture and all. Just that when I switch to camera mode a video screen is blacked out. Why is that?


Your have a "Display" button that toggles thru different display modes .. one of the modes turns off the LCD backlight .. that useful if you are in bright light and dont need the backlight .. you have a very nice "transflective" display that works great in bright light without the backlight ... you can get more shots with the backlight turned off on each battery charge .(about 25% more) .

so each time you operate the display mode button you will get a different display .. one shows a hystogram .. one turns off the backlight and one puts the camera in a normal mode ..

if everything is working right then even with the backlight turned off you should be able to go outside or any brightly lighted area and see the picture on the screen ..
