Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blue line down the middle of the display screen

When I turned my camera on this morning I noticed that there is a thin blue line that goes down the right side of the display screen. The line is there all the time, whether I'm on camera, video or playback mode.

I bought the camera less than 6 months ago, and I'm sure I could take it back to Staples. I'd rather not though if there is something I can do to fix it. Any ideas?

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:

Power problem with Canon Powershot SD500


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.

My screen is completely white with blue lines.


You might have bumped the LCD screen, they break really easily. You can replace it yourself by ordering one on Ebay for about $25.00. A repair shop quoted me $125, but I would buy a new one in that case. It's not hard to change one, but you have to be careful, and make sure you discharge the flash capacitor. If you google the problem mentioning the make, model no., and add "changing LCD screen" you will find a lot of articles on it. Good luck, and maybe get a hard case for your next camera.

The lens cap may be loose. Slightly loosen the cap, maybe even remove it SLOWLY.. over a table with a towel on top. Clean the lenses with a camera cleaning kit and reinstall the cap. Use the booklet that came with the camera. I have 3 cameras, as far back as the 1st Digital JVC 1.5 mp from '96 and I have ALL manuals and warranty papers for it. Hope you do, too. Be careful, take your time and do not Over tighten the lens cap. The circular Hold-Down cover over the outer lens.
