Question about Canon PowerShot SD300 / IXUS 40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

SD300 LCD Display Shows Same Image

Turn Canon Powershot SD 300 on, takes pictures, flashes, download images. All behaves normally. Downloaded images to the computer and they look good. Problem is with the LCD Display. It constantly displays the same image no matter what mode it is in. Take a picture, that image is there, not the image you took the picture of. The displayed image is nothing of anything that I took. Some abstract white, purple and black image in the LCD display.

Mac (OS 10.5.8) does not recognize SD 300?


Skip the installing of drivers and software. Simply buy a card reader/writer. This is a great way to get your pictures downloaded from the camera. Remove the card put it in a card reader, download the files to where you want them, then edit or view as you please.

The camera won't register an image to take a picture of.


LCD monitor electric film contacts must be fixed. If you can not do it yourself then please contact with the nearest authorized Canon Service. I think it is too easy to fix it so it is not need much money.

Not capturing pictures


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:

No display powershot a75


Did you get a solution to your problem? I am experiencing the exact same thing with my A75. Still takes pictures and displays them for the 2 second preview, then back to black. And they download fine, too. But I get the same black screen in every mode except stitch assist and movie mode. Thanks.

Image in LCD shows mulitple horizontal whie lines


This sure looks like a CCD image sensor failure. If so, you can't fix this yourself. If the camera is less than a year old, Canon will fix this for you under warranty. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.

Cannon powershot sd 300


flash may have been dislodged and out of true. or may be the lens is out of alignment or a shutter blade is not functioning. Dropping them sure does them no good at all. Into the repair shop with it
