I had a problem with my PowerShot A300 where the LCD screen looked as if the image was "melted" with a reddish tone. I checked many different websites and finally got to a link on the http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=257&modelid=13390&keycode=2112&id=29819 website and indicated to contact the company directly to send unit in to be repaired.

Problem: Internal wiring may become disconnected, especially if the affected products are stored or used in high-temperature and high-humidity environments

Unable turn on canon 60D i was reviewing the photo


Remove the battery and memory card, switch the power switch on for a few seconds and then switch it off. Make sure the battery is fully charged, re-insert the battery and try to switch on again without the memory card in.

Plz help me- 4 white small bars on my LCD Nikon D5100


Hi there:
Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

A CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details:Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Accidently stood on it.Now the screen stays on white even after changing sd card.


You will have to get the lcd screen replaced. It is most probably cracked where the connectors hook up to it. It is white because you see the backlight - because there are no lcd pixels turned on. (When an lcd pixel is activated, it blocks light.) Shouldn't cost too much to have done, $100 or so, but I'm guessing at that. Search online for repair centers, get some online quotes.

MY CAMERA TAKES PHOTOS THAT APPEARS SHARP ON THE LCD BUT BLURRED AND DISFOCUSED AFTER DOWNLOAD.....


Your LCD is only a small preview screen. I have on many occasions tested a camera and viewed on the screen. When you view the image on a computer it is enlarged to a much larger image. If your pictures appear out of focus you may have a bad lens. Set your camera to the highest mega pixel rate and retake some test images. If these are blurred you have a bad lens.

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.

What are defect pixels?


Ocassionally images from digital cameras will have "defect" pixels. These pixels may appear in the final photograph as bright white, green or red spots that are out of place when compared to the rest of the image. Sometimes people call these spots "hot" or "dead" pixels. Usually these pixels, and other types of "digital noise" appear in the darker or underexposed parts of images; additionally, images taken at longer exposure times are much more likely to have this issue. Many Nikon cameras have a "noise reduction" or "NR" process that fixes these problem areas. When NR is activated and image exposure times drop below 1/4 of a second the NR automatically processes the images as they are saved. This Noise Reduction feature is sometimes called "Night Portrait" or "Night Landscape" Scene Modes. If these spots are seen on images photographed under normal conditions (bright light with exposure times shorter than 1/4 second) then the camera may need to be sent in to a Nikon Service Center for repair. Notice the green defect pixel near the center of this image.
