Question about Canon PowerShot SD700 IS Digital ELPH / IXUS 800 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD appears to be broke but is just VERY DARK?

It looks like my screen wont turn on, and I thought it was broken. It still takes pictures, but the screen isnt working. Nothing major happened to it, it seemed to have come from nowhere. HOWEVER, I have since noticed that in direct sunlight, you can see movements!! It may be simply that the screen is set to very dark. HOW DO I FIX THIS??? I WANT MY SCREEN BACK!!!

I love this camera!

The LCD needs to be replaced, usually around $100 at most repair shops.

DELL 2208WFP LCD-Comes on normally, but almost immediately goes dark You can see something on the screen if you look closely. Turn it off and back on you see it then dark. any help?


Hello,

I believe the power led button is still on while the screen goes dark, if yes, it means the picture board of your monitor is bad that is why it appears for a second and goes dark after that

Since the power led button is on, It means the picture board on your monitor is faulty that is why it appears for a second and goes dark.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or any service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself in other to complicate issues.

Take care.

Very slow to turn on and has small light spots all over screen


The first thing to look for are swollen capacitors on the power board.replace them if so.

Dark screen when I turn on the camera and take pictures.


It looks like the LCD backlight malfunction. Check the backlight voltage, if you have the voltage there, you need to replace the LCD unit, otherwise the main board is defective.

If the LCD screen is broken, you should consider selling your set for parts. The cost of a LCD replacement is not cost effective. Examine the screen to verify.
If the LCD screen is good you can check to see if the "image" is being "sent" to the screen.
1) Take a bright flashlight and place it against the screen with the set on.
2) If you see an image around the edge of the flashlight the problem is in the inverter/CCFT or the power to it.
3) If you do not see an image the problem is probably in the LCD Controller (TCON) or its connections.

No picture on lcd screen


I have the same problem but sadly no solution.

As my camera is still under warranty I took it back to Jessops.  The camera is now with Olympus for repair.  The technician in Jessops hazarded a guess that the problem is a broken processor sitting behind the lens and as such the problem is "really bad".

Here's hoping you are still under warranty.

Black LCD Screen


Faulty main or secondary board. Could also be faulty light sensor or iris. Not a user fixable problem unless you can get another f601 with a broken lens etc with good boards (to replace boards). Or a dead camera with good lens assembly (contains iris).
Very fiddly if you have the parts!!!!!!

Best advise is to sell it as faulty on ebay.
