    There's a diopter adjustment dial to the left of the viewfinder. Try turning that while looking through the viewfinder. Does it make any difference?

My Canon powershot SX10is LCD screen does not work when it is open (extended from the camera). Is there a setting or something I need to change


Press the Disp button near the bottom right of the LCD display housing.

You may need to press it twice to switch the display back to the LCD from the Viewfinder.

My sx10is will not turn on the LCD screen when taking pictures, it will when reviewing them. I think I did something to screw this up, help appreciated>


Close the LCD. Turn the camera off and then on. Look thorough the view finder and press the disp button to cycle through menus until it comes back to picture view. Open the LCD. If it doesn't show picture view, Press the disp button next to the menu button.

LCD screen not working


Hello

Ok, you should know that there is a cable which connects the lcd monoitor to the circuitboard of the camera itself. it could be that the cable is just slightly pulled out.

I know that there is a setting as well which enables you to use either the viewfinder or the lcd. Look for a button which looks like a screen with a star in it, this will either activate the lcd or the viewfinder.

At the link below you will be able to download the manual for this camera for further troubleshooting.

Kind regards

View screen won't work


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Black screen while shooting, but still taking pictures not black


Nonononooooo fotomohamed, he can review just taken pictures on the LCD. The screen is working.

Actually, it sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save batteries (you would then use optical viewfinder). Just press it once and it should turn back on.

Canon SX10 IS Viewfinder is Blurry


Adjust the diopter knob. This is located on the left side of the viewfinder. Its a small black knob / wheel. Turn wheel until viewfinder is clear!

Black screen on my Canon PowerShot A640


I had this problem too. Try the "DISP" button (bottom left on the display side of the camera. It allows you several viewing options, and is easy to accidentally hit and turn the LCD screen "off."
