How old is your camera (presumably under 18 months as they haven't been out for that long)? There does seem to be some faults appearing with this camera. Have you tried resetting it to factory settings as that's what Canon told me to do when I had problems. Not sure that's a permanent fix though and it could be software issues. Have you phoned canon?

Camera turns "on", can read menus, etc, but, there is no image on LCD screen?


On page 8 of the basic operate manual you see the backside of the camera and there you find the display button. Try pressing that one several times, while in recording mode.

Please check if the LCD backlight isn't turned off by pressing DISPLAY botton (it may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon) several times until the screen appears, if this doesn't work perform the following reset procedure on the camera:
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.

Time lag between focusing and shooting causes missed phot ops


First of all, all point and shoot cameras suffer from "shutter lag". You can Google that for more info. To minimize it, press the shutter button half-way and lock in the focus. Then, press the rest of the way when the time is right. Your camera will be about 0.5 to 0.8 seconds behind the actual press of the button.

I cannot get the LCD view screen to work ?


There should be a menu button on the camera. if there is, go into the settings and turn the LCD Screen back on. (Actually if you press the menu button on the camera, you should see the menu on the LCD screen.) There is an option to turn off the screen to save battery life.

Nothing appears on the LCD screen. What should I do?


The camera may have shut off automatically to save power. Press the POWER button to turn it back on. Also make sure the mode dial is turned completely to the desired mode. When the camera is connected to a computer, the LCD screen is disabled. When it is connected to a printer, press any button to display the print progress screen. After a moment, it disappears again.

Using the camera screen (LCD) as a viewfinder


To use the LCD as a viewfinder: Turn the Mode dial to any Still mode. Press the OK button to turn on the camera screen. Frame your subject in the LCD. Press the Shutter button to take a picture. NOTE: Using the camera screen as a viewfinder significantly reduces battery power. Use it sparingly.
