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.

My view finder is screen is black..... when I take a picture, it shows the pic taken then goes back to a blank screen... it happened at a concert... it was fine then it went black


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Black screen; lens won't shut; totally not working now


Sound like the sensor or recoding electronics are bad. The camera is most likely beyond economical repair and I would buy a new one.

LCD Screen remains black


Hi!
Have you tried pushing the DISP button while taking pictures? It's on the right from the LCD.

I have no image in the viewfinder on a canon S2 IS but the lcd display works and it seems to work fine otherwise. What are the likely causes?


There is sometimes a button on digital cameras that turns off the LCD while taking pictures to save battery. Does your camera have a viewfinder? If it does then there might be a button that looks like a little screen or says "disp" or something like that.

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):

The LCD is black when I am taking fotos....otherwise it is working fine


Usually you would press the Display button to turn the LCD on, on with options, or off. I leave it off when taking pictures to save on battery life, though it does display each picture for several seconds after it is taken.

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera


maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.

Turns on, takes pictures, blank screen


I know in most digital cameras there is an option buried in one menus to turn display OFF. Perhaps, you can have a look around in the various menus to turn screen back on. Also, there should be another button or feature that allows you to view the shots you've taken.

My camera's LCD screen goes black every so often. What is wrong?


No. All Lumix® Digital Cameras have a built-in feature to conserve battery power. After a certain amount of inactivity, the LCD will power down to preserve the battery. Simply hit the SHTR button, and the LCD will turn ON.
