I have read that there seem to be many issues with no display on the LCD in playback or photo mode. What can I do to get this resolved? Thanks you. Greg

"The battery regulator inside needs to be replaced around $15 from radioshack or you can take it to a camera shop for around $35 bucks. If its still under warrenty Take it in and have it repaired free."

Can you still take pictures and if so can you download them and the image shows up? If so this means the LCD itself or an internal connection is bad/defective. You will want to have the camera serviced.

Nice camera :) However it "only" takes pictures up to 180 ppi. You can't change it.
It might be easier to take your pictures as normal and then change their resolution to 300ppi in photo processing software like e.g. photoshop / photoshop elements (commercial) or gimp or irfanview (free).
NB, while it's not going to help here much, you might find this reading interesting:
Hope this helps,

Testimonial: "This was exactly the answer I needed, otherwise I'd still be trying different settings in an effort to obtain 300ppi. Thank you! "
Depending on your OS, you can download the latest driver for your system directly from Canon here. Remember to select your OS in the dropdown tab to be able to see the available downloads.
But I'd also recommend that you take this as an opportunity to consider utilizing a much safer method of downloading your pictures and videos. Please see this link, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. Note that card readers are also VERY inexpensive these days (some places less than $2 online with shipping).
