Usually, when an lcd screen cracks you're done. But, on a camera like that powershot, which is a very nice camera, I suppose it would be worth it to replace the screen.

I'm actually surprised that you could buy the screen.

I don't recall seeing any screws to hold it on on the outside, Maybe you have to open up the camera and get access on the inside.

I'm not sure, because I never did one of these either.

When I searched Canon's site they came up with a link for email support, but also service:

Is there a program to download movies and pictures from my Cannon PowerShot S5IS digital camera?


Yes but you could use a card reader to download your pics and movies to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can use programs already on your computer to open them.

Cracked screen


Usually you can still take pictures in this situation. I fix alot of lcd's for alot of different Digital cameras. The LCD is attached with a delicate ribbon cable to the mainboard. Some LCD's have a seperate backlight with an additional ribbon cable. You have to get a new or Used LCD and get it put in or put it in yourself. I have a repair service on e-bay and guarantee my work. e-bay store camera shy anna. It costs 64.99 to 104.99 depending on the cost of the LCD with labor and return shipping included. I can fix most stuck lenses also.

Sorry, missed your previous posts. The following blog outlines some simple repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty. Hope they help:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Wish you the best of luck. But keep in mind though that you have a 50/50 chance of repair with the above techniques. If they don't work, the camera likely needs replacement of the lens assembly. Unfortunately, due to the complexity of the repair (a LOT of things in the way), the cost of such a repair usually outweighs the value of the camera.

The following two links are repair guides for fixing a cracked LCD on similar SD500/600 models. They include some photos that may help illustrate how deeply buried the lens assembly is in the sd elph cameras.

Cracked lcd


Well, there is a Powershot A520 on eBay right now that has a good LCD screen but does not work. It would be a good deal since a new part may be fairly expensive. Item number: 160196261124. You will need a good cross point screwdriver and tweezers to make this repair

If you can get a replacement screen (ebay from a broken camera with working LCD screen?), it's not too hard:
