Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Canon SD500 Powershot Elph camera that is about 2 years old. Recently on vacation the LCD screen stopped working properly. The screen is white with an asymmetrical black configuration on it. It's sort of like a piece of an umbrella--pointed edges and lines running through it. The camera will still turn on and off but nothing is available on the screen. Even though I paid $350 for it, I'm ready to just ditch it as Canon wants over $100 just to look at it.

    Thank you. My thoughts, too. They actually will "diagnose" it for free but there is a minimum charge of $119 to repair it. Or...you can purchase a re-furbished discontinued model for $140. Thanks, but no thanks! I can buy new for that amount.



    Anyway, keep up the good work. We need you!

Ditch it- They will want $100 just to tell you to get a new one.

Power problem with Canon Powershot SD500


Somehow you have damaged the internal LCD display, or, less likely, a portion of the optics have cracked. In the case of the PowerShot SD500 it will not be worth replacing either unless the camera is still under warranty. Standard warranty is one year.

Hi Dear,

This issue is due to some electrical circuit failure in your camera which is responsible for the flash to work.

Please show it to the nearest service center. And please do not try to fix it on your own as problem might become complex.

There should be a tiny slide switch on the side of the card. Merely slide this switch to the other "unlocked" position.

Nothing displays in LCD screen, canon powershot S400 digital ELPH


Sounds like your LCD might have gone bad. The LCD might cost more than the camera costs, but there are a few places on eBay that you can buy a repair and replacement service from for pretty cheap.
