Question about Canon Powershot SD450 / IXUS 55 Digital Camera
After about 2 years of use my SD450's screen went black. The camera is working fine otherwise. Pressinf "Display" button didn't help. Please advise.
Please see the following post, and look for the SD400 LCD repair link. Click on the pictures of that site for larger pics. Follow the disassembly instructions, but skip the lengthy LCD removal portion. Instead just look for the LCD connector as shown on the front of the camera. Unseat the cable from the connector as shown by lifting the connector gate, BUT DO NOT unthread the cable through the camera. Merely examine its ends, and if it looks dirty gently clean it with a drop of alcohol on a Qtip. Give it some time to dry, and then reseat it back into its connector, close the connector gate, reassemble the camera and try it out.
Make sure you also read the following Flash Capacitor Shock Warning post on the above blog site before proceeding.
Good Luck and hope it works. If it doesn't the next step would be to check out the electrical wire power connection to the back light.
