If cleaning your lens doesn't solve the problem, then the problem is inside the camera and there's not much you can do on your own. It may need service and it probably won't be cheap.

I replaced the lcd screen. Now when the my camera is turned on i have a black screen with nothing on the lcd. Not even a menu display. I have pushed the lcd ribbon as suggested but no luck. Need advise....


The backlight is not turning on, it's the smaller of the two ribbon cables on the LCD assembly.

Make sure you have a backlight on your new LCD (not everybody sells it with the backlight!) or reuse your old backlight with the new LCD.

Check the backlight cable, is it ripped? Even slightly? If so, you need a new backlight.

"cannon powershot sd870 wont turn on when memory


Please check the memory card with your PC and check if there are any corrupt files within. If so remvoe and format the card , Also so a virus scan and confirm that the Sd card is clean.
Now insert and check. If however the card is found in good condition in the first place then there are errors in the interface to the processor in the camera which might need a technical help from the Canon-service center.

I've got two good sized black spots on my LCD screen. They don't show up in the photos, but are a nusance.


It sounds like this is a common problem with this model. The lcd screen on my SD870 IS developed a large area of dead pixels a few months after I bought it new. A family member with the same camera had the exact same problem.

LCD screen not working


Your LCD is broken.
The SD card would not be able to affect the LCD screen in any way.
Normally I would say to get the LCD fixed but that would be a waste of money due to the fact that this model was released in 2004 and you would be better off getting a new camera.

For good quality and "user-friendliness" i would suggest the:

Canon SD1000, SD870, SD750 (Thin, sleek designs that come with a rechargable battery)

For more a more convenient price without loss of quality you might want to check out the Canon PowerShot A560.
(A somewhat large and bulky camera that runs on regular AA batteries)

Goodluck!
