Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Hey, I just purchased a Canon Powershot A720 IS today and as I was messing with it the LCD screen just went black. The icons on it show up, but when I take a picture its just black, as if the shutter isn't open or something. Is there a setting I accidentally hit or what? Help please, I'm going to Germany in 4 days and need to get this all worked out.

    Thanks. I went ahead and just turned it in, but it was nice to hear all the technical talk. I pressed the DISP button but it would not work.

    Thanks bro.

First turn on the camera and press the DISP button on the back of the camera (lower left corner). The DISP button manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. But if that doesn't fix it, then take the camera back for exchange. Black pictures are usually indicative of a defective CCD imager, and hence a defective camera. You can't fix this yourself.

My less than 2 year ollld A720 does not have any image showing on the LCD display


Check whether your LCD is bad. To do this, shoot a picture and then download to PC. If the picture is ok, then LCD is bad. You need to replace it.

Ihave an A70; it went dead. it is not the battries, lithium battery and memory chip is fine. Comletely died on me. Thanks


I did not receive a fix ya solution; somebody sent me a post that included links for new cameras. I was put off by this smart *** type of response.

I ended up finding my bill for the camera and it still had warranty; I took it to Staples where I bought it and they gave me a 50% depreciated value for the camera. I will never by another Cannon camera and I will never shop at staples again, bad experiences with both.

LCD Screen remains black


Hi!
Have you tried pushing the DISP button while taking pictures? It's on the right from the LCD.

Canon A630 screen black


Turns out my husband must have pressed a button by accident. The bottom left button says "disp" for display. Pressing that fixed the screen!

Canon Powershot SD1000: LCD screen display


Hopefully you resolved this already. If not, push the "DISP." button left of the MENU button. Pushing it gives you three options: black (for discreet shooting so your LCD doesn't give garner dirty looks from fellow concert goers), liveview, and liveview with info overlayed (shooting mode, ISO, etc.). Good luck!

How do i take black and white photos with my canon powershot A720 IS


Camera must be in P, Av, Tv, M, stitch assist, or movie mode.

1. Press Func/Set
2. Scroll down to My Colors icon on left side of LCD (fourth icon down - usually says OFF)
3. Use left or right arrow to select B/W
4. Press Func/Set

Remember to set My Colors back to OFF when done shooting black and white.
