Question about Canon PowerShot SX20 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Every time I put the screen facing to me, the screen goes black and everything is on the viewfinder. This does not happen when I take it out to either twist the screen, and sometimes the screen flashes between the LCD and the viewfinder when it is faced me, not being twisted around or faced the other way. How do I solve this?

GO ON FACETIME GET BLACK SCREEN


Make sure that the camera is not being blocked by a screen protector or the case. Also, make sure you are connected to a fast internet connection. Usually, everything goes black when it is trying to establish a connection and start the video stream. If that does't work, try a hard reset by pressing the power button and home button together. Hold these buttons both down until the device shuts off.

Digital viewfinder not working


Sounds like a loose or poor connection of the screen's flex cables, a very common problem for your model camera. The A630's vari-angle screen is a great option for a camera, but with this moveable screen, the screens data and power cables can and do wiggle loose. It is actually relatively easy to fix by just reseating these cables, but will require opening the back face of the screen of your camera. Please see this other person who had a similar problem.

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.
