Black spots on the lcd display

I noticed 2 slightly black spots on the display of my camera, about 1/4 inch in diameter. I think if's just beneath the protective glass screen. It's still there on view image mode, on shooting mode ,on videoing mode and on menu display. The spot does not enlarge when I zoom in on viewing and shooting mode. What causes this and whats the solution?

    I got this as a gift (sd750) and I have exactly the same problem. They look like two dark areas almost in the middle of the screen but slightly towards the bottom. They look like two small bruises with no defined egde but I have not knocked the screen at all.



    Theydont show up on the actual photos so its not something on the lens and they dont change size. When you turn the camera off as the backlight turns off they are still there.

    i have a SD870 that now has it and ive been searching for answers all over and havent found out anything either. bah.


    i thought it may have been moisture so i took a hair dryer to it and it actually helped it as well as moved it out of the center and into the top corner.  


    its about half the size now and a few horizontal rows of pixels below the larger spot.  they are grayish in color and semi translucent with small patches of pink and green ones around its edges.  as i was shooting it with the hair dryer (for quite a while) some vanished and others changed colors. 


    its now been two weeks since its happened and they havent changed.

In my experience dark spots on 3.0in displays are common faults on Canon SD models. The problem occurs with age in the LCD layer and no amount of cleaning can solve this quality control problem.

Tiny black spot lcd


Erika, Do you mean you have a black spot on the LCD of your camera?
We call that a dead pixel. Can be black and can be white. Most LCD's sooner or later have a one or more dead pixel(s). As long as they are not in the centre of the screen you won't notice them. Even dead pixels on the camera sensor can happen. These you won't see at all, because the software does calculate what that pixel would look like in that specific shot. And the software will place a correct colour on that spot.
Try to live with the dead pixel(s). you won't see them on the actual pictures. Not on the computer to tablet and not on a print.

I have a huge black spot on the LCD lens, I would


The display being spotted can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the display is seen to be spotted, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.

However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the camera aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

My Sanyo camera has 2 black dots (like polka dots) on the screen and a black line at the bottom. They don't affect the picture but is a problem when trying to focus the camera.


Hello Kitomari4

OK, the fact that you only notice the the lines and spots on the lcd itself, means that the lcd itself is damaged. This is most likely due to an internal crack on the lcd. I would suggest you get the screen replaced at your nearest camera repair centre.

Please feel free to let me know if you need ant further assistance.

Kind regards

A 1/2 inch roun black spot on the lower left screen. when print out photos it,s not on the photos


It's a screen problem (fungus, dead lcd crystals, etc.). If it's not affecting the pics, don't worry about it since a screen replacement is very expensive.

The part of my camera that display image is broken


if its the screen (LCD) and if its cracked (may show black spots and colorful lines) then you can do 2 things, 1. get a new camera 2. get a new screen for it and install it (you probaly can get a screen on ebay, but it requires opening up the camera and working on the components on the inside, its not that hard to do, but if you dont have experince with working on electronics, i would have someone replace the screen or simply buy a new camera from the store or even ebay

Blinking black in play mode!!!! PLEASEEEEE HELLLPP


Hello,

If this is the same as my Nikon this is the overexposed highlight display option.
This shows areas of the photograph that are overexposed slightly.

On my Nikon I use the up and down arrows on the back to cycle the LCD display options.
Stop when you get a display that does not flash.

Spots on pics


I suggest you send it back to repair shop to clean ccd area. there are fine dusts in ccd screen area that camera need to be disassemble and removed and cleaned. I do not think the LCD is the problem. Some point and shoot models dust flowing through more than some others and if I am not mistaken, it seems this model has dust problem.
