Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Display goes off when it is sunny

My camera's display shuts off in bright reflected sunlight and I am unable to take a picture.. If I move it to more shaded area it comes on again but this is rather inconvenient if I want to take a pucture of my kids playing on the beach. Do I have something set wrong or is my camera faulty?

Are you sure it's actually turning off? One of the complaints I read when reviewing the camera before purchase was that the display could be unviewable in bright light. It would be quite unexpected for the screen to actually go dark in bright light and miraculously come back on in the shade... The camera has a viewfinder and I bought it with one for just this type of circumstance.

Sunlight prevents me from seeing my monitor


If you mean the LCD display on the back of the camera you can adjust the brightness in the camera menu. Press the menu button, move to the yellow spanner with 2 dots top right, below this you'll see LCD brightness, highlight this and press set you'll then go to another screen showing a scale 1 to 7 use the left / right button to move the pointer closer to 7 to increase the screen brightness.

What can I do to prevent sunlight from seeing my monitor


If your problem is that sunlight makes it difficult to see what is displayed on the LCD screen, you can make the LCD display brighter by going through the menus to the option to adjust the LCD brightness. Move it to the brightest setting and see if that makes enough difference. You can also buy an LCD hood to shield it from the sun. Hope this helps!

Display screen does not show picture


Could be your camera is still working, but some settings are messed up?
You could have turned off the display. In the menu with IMAGE DISP. Is used to save battery power.
Then try making pictures in the mode automatic. Because if you switched to scene like bright sunlight or snow your pictures can be very dark.

Sometimes when i try to take a picture - the camera won't let me - a flashing hand appears on the display screen and it won't let me take the picture - i have the camera on auto adjustment - i just want to...


If it is set to auto then about all I can think of is low light pictures and you may have the flash disabled or the battery level is too low to power the flash .

Try taking a picture in bright sunlight and see if it behaves. I can't recal if that model disables and enables the flash with the menu or if it has a button on the case looks like a lightening flash. And don't forget to charge your battery

I solve the problem of extreme reflection in the lcd screen.


I assume you're talking about pictures taken outside on a sunny day. All cameras are hard to see in bright light.

Battery level don't show on display.


hi friend,

follow these steps
  1. Turn off your LCD display screen. I know this is hard—who likes shoving their face against the camera to compose a shot through the little viewfinder? But the LCD screen single-handed-ly drains a lot of power.
  2. Minimize the picture preview to the least amount of time possible—usually one second. This uses less LCD screen time, thus less power.
  3. Dim the brightness on your LCD screen. A dimmer display extends battery life by consuming less power to light the screen. This might make the display harder to see, but usually only in direct sunlight.
  4. Set the power saver to the least amount of time. Power saver lets your digital camera “sleep” when not in use, but doesn’t shut it down entirely. To “wake up” your digital camera, simply click the shutter button.
  5. Use your zoom as little as possible. The motor that moves the lens uses power. This also goes for repeatedly turning your digital camera on and off if it has an extend able lens.
  6. Turn off the continuous focus. Again, constantly using motors and electronics to ready your shot drastically minimizes battery life.
  7. Don’t push the shutter button half-way down until you’re ready to shoot. Pushing the shutter button (constantly resetting and refocusing) will drain battery life.
  8. Use the flash only when necessary. Your digital camera’s “auto flash” option should take care of this, but make sure your flash isn’t going off in broad daylight.
  9. Don’t delete pictures from your digital camera unless necessary. This consumes power. Wait until you download the pictures to your computer before deleting.
  10. This one’s basic, but charge your battery often. Lithium ion batteries, which most digital cameras use, don’t have “battery memory” like older alkaline. In fact, lithium ions work better and last longer if charged completely and regularly.

thank u for using fixya

New Kodak M1033 cannot see image on LCD in sunlight


This is a common problem with all LCD screens without anti-reflective coatings.This is normal. Increase the brightness of LCD while shooting in the sun. Internal memory normally takes only a few images. This is normal. Use a memory card to shoot more images.

Finepix 2600 problems


The 2600 is an old camera now.... I had it as a first digicam, and did not really had the same problems! Only at the beach, at very bright sunlight, pictures were not always the best... If you see the first part of my Thailand pictures, just see the link, there are pictures taken with the same camera. If you think they are better then yours, then the only thing I can say is that there is a fault at the camera! This camera had at his time not a bad reputation, don't forget it is only 2 MP. I have taken it recently to Disneyland, when they stole my G 3, and still had some decent stuff out of it. Battery-life is very poor though!
