Question about Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Digital Camera

2 Answers

Just bought a Canon Powershot sx10is. Bought used. worked fine at first. Now when I try to power on the camera the LCD screen quickly flashes white. The camera never turns on. I have tried various types of batteries including alkaline and rechargable. I have also tried replacing the small watch type battery that is in the camera (CR1220) and nothing works. Any Ideas?

Not sure what would cause that. Try going to this site and emailing them: www.camerasandparts.com They are excellent if you need help with a powershot, that's all they work on. If you can return it to the store you bought it, that might be best. If not, use that site as they are fantastic if you need service for a powershot camera.

    DON'T SEND your camera to camerasandparts.com, it's a total scam. Google: camerasandparts review first.

    If you search camerasandparts in this website itself, you can see almost all cameras' problems here have a comment telling you to send it to camerasandparts.com. They are done by the companies' employees. DON’T BE FOOL by their different profile pictures. They even take a step further to write positive reviews about the company in other websites.

    Think about it, will anyone who has nothing to do with C

Canon sx10is does not power on after changing the battery door. new batteries worked fine prior


The battery terminals may be corroded or oily. Try cleaning them as best you can with a pencil eraser, or better yet with an ink eraser.

Wait - this is after replacing the battery DOOR? Did the door come with the proper terminals, exactly identical to the old door?

Canon powershot SX170IS purole screen


I would take it back to where you bought it, it should still be under warranty. Sounds like a bad rear image sensor. If your really handy with tools, you can find how to repair it on youtube. But I would take it back to the seller. Now if you bought it used, I would try United Camera. I have used United Camera before and found them to be really good.

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.

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.

I bought a canon powershot sx10is about 3 weeks ago when I bought it I told the salesman I needed it for sports action all I get is blurry pitures


This is a common problem with digital cameras. Canon makes a great camera you just need to know the trick. The shutter release has two stages the first lets the camera do metering the second takes the pic. to get action shots you need to frame the photo before the action ( set up the pic in the veiw finder or lcd display) the press the release to the first stop and wait for the green box or bracket (depending on model) the shot is now ready as soon as you press down the rest of the way it will immediatly take the pic.

this is the only way I'm aware of to get an action pic with a digital point and shoot. You bought a great camera but it's not quite an SLR.

hope this helps
