    if you fold out the screen it is totally off. if you flip it over and fold it back onto itself it comes on. unfortunatly me and another camera technician at work have looked at it taken it apart and we still cannot fix the problem so i dont know if we will be able to achieve anything more.

    Thank you. Is the screen totally off? Meaning does the backlight turn on?

LCD Screen doesn't work when it is clicked in (screen facing up) it only shows up on the eyehole. I tried hitting the Display button so many times yet it doesn't work.


A Camera Labs review of this camera, November 2008, states, "If the screen is folded back on itself, the DISP button only switches between the two EVF modes." (EVF = Electronic View Finder.) i.e. it is not affecting the screen at all.
On my Canon 60D with a similar folding screen the same appears to be the case but, if I fold back the screen while it is functioning it works OK.
Also, I noticed that pressing several other buttons on the back of the camera effects changes to the screen. Might be worth trying these on your camera.

You can reset the camera to factory settings. If after that, you still have the same problem, make valid the Canon warranty since it's 4 months old.

LCD Screen does not work properly


Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.
