Your screen connector has become loose most likely. It seems that you posted two different problems submitted by different users. If you can't see the pictures on your camera screen but can transfer them to your computer and see them, then your connector for the screen is at fault. If you can't take pictures at all, then you have a problem with the lens or other component. Please let me know of the exact problem so I can better diagnose the component at fault

I did some research on your A70-If the lcd is bad but the camera sensor is ok your pics will come out fine when viewing or printing-if pics are no good then the image sensor in camera lens is bad-this camera is about 5 yrs old and would make complete sense to replace with newer model-possibly A570 or sd750 would be great choices-also memory card won't fit new models so you have to buy a new 1 or 2 gb sd card if you stick with cannon. Good Luck!

Outdoor pics completely washed out Cannon S5 IS Power shot


Try going into the review menu, choose setup and then choose 'reset all' This should re-set all shooting settings to automatic and solve the problem. If that doesn't do the trick, your sensor is probably damaged - not good news - sorry

The screan is black i can take picturs fine and record but i when i go take a pic the screen is black until i review the pic. Its not the shutters because the screen isnt black when i have it on video...


Hi,

The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to cannon service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.


Thank you

I have a Canan thats giving my problems too


Hi there.
Its possible the pictures are fine if you download them to the PC.
The fact that if you can see a ghost image on the camera indicates that the inverter has gone on the camera and it need to be repaired.
This can cost a lot of money to get sorted out, so if your happy to snap away and then transfer the pics to the PC then your all good, but if you prefer to see what pic your taking then a repair is eminent, other than that its a new camera.


Thanks for using FixYa!!

There is a button on the back that can be pressed called Disp. (stands for Display). There are two or three settings it flips through each time you press the button. Press this button a few times to cycle through the choices in each of the playback and camera mode to see if this resolves your issue. Happy snapping...

Cannon A70 black screen, can snap picture but come out with black pic too


Hi ..?.., a fairly common problem. If you can insert a good CF card with known good images and see them, it's probably a recognised manufacturer's "CCD" fault and Canon will repair it free of charge!! You can check their website (Australian e.g. - copy and paste all between the following single quotes ... 'http://www.canon.com.au/support/customer/default.asp?DXI=KnowledgeBase/Customer/KBArticleForm&File=KB01634&productID=powershota70' ... in your browser address bar) but I suggest telephoning your nearest Canon office and taking it/mailing it to them. (If you cannot check it, they will do this). Hope this helps. Regards, Gerry.
