I have a Canon Ixus 40 and the screen does not work now can it be fixed for a reasonable cost.


Depends on whether or not the camera can take a picture OK.
If no picture, you may wish to replace the camera.
If it takes a good picture, the LCD ranges from $40 - $120 and labour to change it. Contact Canon for a good service center.

Canon does not let me view some pictures on the LCD screen


My guess would be that the program you are using in your computer is not a Canon product. If this is the case, it is possible the program may have automatically adjusted the image, red eye correction or ? thus changing the image and making it impossible for the camera to read the file.

I dropped my IXUS 70. Display screen has black section.


You have a bad CCD. The CCD is like film, it is what the light hits that actually convert an image to a picture. This is a repair as a rule that is more costly than what your camera may be worth.

Canon Power Shot SD 400 Digital Elph - image not on screen


On most canon elph cameras you can either go through the menu and reset back to factory default and this might solve the black or white screen. If that does not work you should be able to hold the menu button down for several seconds until a reset prompt pops up. You will then click on yes for reset and this should completely reset the camera and the screen should be back to normal.

When camera is switch on the menu shows but no picture/image


Your camera seems to have ccd chip problem. Image chips goes bad sometimes and when you play recorded image it is ok but when you want to turn on the camera to take picutures, you'll see scrambled image or no image at all. The remedy for this symptom requires a replacement of ccd chip. The average repair for ccd problem is $100-$130 in the repair market. -James

Photo image cant


I seemed to have resolved my current issue. Previously I was reading my SD card through a card reader. I must have had a duff connection which caused the corrupt files.

I connected the camera directly through usb and the pictures transferred with no problems.

Thanks for all your help.

My Canon Powershot SD630


Dear Peter,

It sounds to me as though your camera is experiencing the early stages of a CCD sensor problem. Users will often experience color changes and/or lines in their LCD screens when viewed in picture taking modes at this stage of the problem. Later on their sensors will ultimately fail completely and they will typicallt get nothing but a black screen.

To differentiate between a sensor problem and a LCD screen problem, try viewing your LCD screen in several different shooting modes (e.g. automatic, manual, program AE, etc) and then view your screen while in your menu (by depressing the menu button in any shooting mode). If you can clearly see your menu (OR, while in playback, pictures that were taken before the issue began) then it is your CCD image sensor and not your LCD screen.

If, however, all of these modes gives you the same distortion, it is your LCD screen itself that has experienced a problem. In either case, however, the primary solution is to send the camera in for service.

If you are under your 1 Year warranty this is usually no problem. If you are out of your warranty period and (and this is a BIG and) are capable of repairing your digital camera yourself, you have the alternate option of ordering just the defective part and installing it yourself. Replacment parts, however, come with no technical support and no instructions so make absolutely sure you are capable of repairing the camera should you choose this lower cost repair option. Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
