This sounds like a thin cable break that goes to the LCD screen in door, help hope not, or you will be seeing your holiday go west this summer as that is NOT a cheap repair.

Check to make sure that you did not accidentally change image format from jpg to crw(camera raw). Your camera lcd will only display jpg files and you need special software to view raw files on the pc.

LCD won't display and getting a busy message from the flash


You may have a problem internally, and the camera may need repairs.
But, let us try to see if we can help.
On the external of the camera there should be a button for turning on the display and setting in different modes. Some cameras of this kind will not show through the LCD, but uses the viewer for picture taking, and the lcd for viewing playback views.

Go to the menus and set all to default. This camera may have a setting to set all to default. After, test the camera.
If after testing to what I have stated, and still the camera is doing the same, then I recommend to call Canon repair.
Call Canon from the website toll free number for the repair department. Canon's support is great, tell them your camera model and serial.
They may solve your problem by phone, or you may send it to them for repair. Canon has a great trade-up or trade-in program. This may be an option which may interest you if you cannot fix the camera.

Canon A75 no images on LCD when shooting


Possibly the same problem I just had with my A75 (and shared with another post here).

Below the LCD are two buttons (versus four on the A70). The button on the left is the Print/Share button, which is new to the A75, while the display button (DISP.) toggles the LCD and what's shown on it on and off.

Hope this works.

Sony CCD-TRV65. Blue screen during playback


Just bought the exact one from a yard sale for 20 bucks. Had the very same problem with the blue screen on playback. What i did is replace the battery in the small bay when you open the viewfinder. Try playing your tape again and it will work!

Sony Cybershot DSC-W100 LCD viewer


do you guys have a grainy display, that makes it look like there are less color variations?

for example, if you take a picture of something that varies in color from one side of it to the other, with an infinite variation in one color to the next; do the colors separate into grainy spotches, as if it lost some color display capabilities? mine did this, if i took a picture of something that had different hues of one color, they would all flow together into one splotch, and upload fine.

so i sent it in and they said they "reconnected the lens-flex" among other routine things. problem fixed.

but then i sent it in again and they said they did the same thing, but the problem this time around was my capture-mode dial was glitching, the display was FINE. sadly they didn't do jack to fix the dial it and it still screws up. it will switch back and forth from adjacent modes without me turning it.

i'm happy with this camera but its a pain sometimes. if you guys have warranties send your units in ASAP to get it fixed for freeeeeee.

best of luck, i can't suggest anything beyond that.
