Power problem with Canon Powershot SD500

When I turn on my camera my screen is white with a thin blue line through it and an ink blot like stain. Then after a minute the screen goes black. I have put in a new battery. No difference.

I don't know about the "not worth replacing". We've got people who are still sending us this stuff for repair. If you use good,salvage parts, you can keep cost down and extend the life of this camera for a small fee. We do it all the time. www.nabilselectronics.com

Somehow you have damaged the internal LCD display, or, less likely, a portion of the optics have cracked. In the case of the PowerShot SD500 it will not be worth replacing either unless the camera is still under warranty. Standard warranty is one year.

There is a red & white icon at the top of camera blinking. It is not the battaries. This icon is no where in the book that came with camera. This camera is powershot a560


Does the icon look roughly like an oval with a diagonal line through it? On some other models, this is a warning that the date battery needs to be replaced. I couldn't find the icon in the book either, but there are directions on pages 106 and 107 for replacing this battery. The battery is a button type, CR1220.

Blue line down the middle of the display screen


No there's no simple way to fix that problem. To correct it would require opening the camera, thus voiding your warranty. Take it back for exchange. If it's longer than Staples will honor, then contact Canon directly at 1-800-828-4040 or 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666). Here's your warranty:

Camera can't upload pictures


You can reinstall the software. But a really good solution is a card reader. They are cheap and reliable and don't need any software. When you plug it in, it will install itself, and then when you put your car in the reader its like an extra little hard drive in your computer. Just drage the files or folders where you want them on your computer. Less wear and tear on the camera is always good and then you don't need to plug in power or waste batteries if you don't have a dock.
