Problems with LCD screen

When I turn on my camera (A75 digital) the screen just has lines but nothing comes on the screen. I can view the old pictures on the camera but cannot take new pictures.

    I am having the same problem with my A75. When I turn on the LCD screen, it is squiggly waves and lines of the image that I am trying to take the picture of. It is 4 years old, and a new camera will cost less than trying to repair this one, I guess.

    when i turn on my canon A75 camera, i only cannot see the object i want to take. i see shimmering waves thru the screen. some times it works but most cases it doesn't. secondly, when i want to transfer the pictures, the computer does not detect the camera.

I called Canon support and they told me to hold the Menu button down for about 6 seconds and then it will ask you if you want to reset, check okay and then use the set button.  If that doesn't work they will repair your camera for free... it's something to do with the CCD unit.

You can take it to a camera shop or Best Buy and see if the CCD unit needs to be replaced.

If you are seeing lines and northing on the screen and it isn't taking any pictures, thats probably the culprit.

there is dirt-moisture glue around the cover of the ccd sensor preventing its opening. get it to a professional and the dirt glue removed. this can happen if u transfer ur cam from humid place to an cool area like where there is AC.

Canon A75 No startup sound & display on LCD, rest of things works fine


Think it might be your batteries. 700mah batteries are pretty weak by today's standards (most are at least 2,500 mah these days). I'm guessing your batteries are several years old? If so, they're really only meant to have a usable shelf life of a few years, whether they are used or not. Recommend trying a new set of rechargeable batteries.

Black lcd monitor with lines runing arond it like crazy Any Help


oh. good. its not fault of LCD. your CCD has fault.
according to your problem you wont get photos also recorded in your camera i think.

but if you are able to use a view finder and take photos means its not a costly fault.

else means try this.
connect it to your TV usng AV cord. if you are able to see pictures means there is some fault with the connections inside for LCD from CCD.
