Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

4 Answers

Everything is black.

When I turn on the camera the screen is black and so are any pictures that I take. The lcd screen is on, I checked to make sure. The brihtness control isn't too low either. I've checked everything I can think of and can't figure it out.

    I dropped my camera and right after dropping it turned it on to make sure it was OK. When I turned it on, the entire screen was black, but if i moved the camera around, i could see dark shadows, showing that the camera was on, but just that something was wrong with the screen. This has happened before, but not from dropping it. I recharged the battery, and it still won't turn on. It's been about a day or two, but I'm still worried. Help me fix my baby!!!

    Had the exact same problem as all of you and tapped on it and it worked. This makes me question the reliability of this camera.

    Well, I have the same problem with this stuff. After I've viewed my pics on my wonderful AXUS 750, I switched to the shooting mode and Everything is black! I've done and checked everything but still everything is black. I decided to turn off my cam and turned it ON on the next day. Then again it is still like that. The next day I decided to check the net for some resolution of my prob and I am very happy to see this site cause your resolution is incredibly good! I'm very shocked that that would be the resolution of my problem. What a digicam!..I am very disatisfied with it..

OMG this worked on mine too!!!!

... sad thing is that this seems to be a common problem in the first place. My IXUS is just 3 months old - surely Canon should fix this FOC as a design issue.

My Kodak V530 is able to turn on,but all black in LCD

Mine was doing about the same thing. Take the battery out. Take the 4 screws off where you can get to the screen from the inside. Get the back off where you can get to the screen connection. Press on the connection to make sure they are seated well and put it back together. It worked for me.

You may still be able to take pictures with your black screened Kodak camera. This problem occurs in the line of Kodak EasyShare digital camera models.

When you turn on your Kodak EasyShare digital camera, turn off the LiveView function. Take a picture using the small-windowed viewfinder (this is not the LCD screen). Also, try zooming in and out.

After taking a picture, review the picture to see if the picture has been taken. Then turn on LiveView and occasionally the LCD screen should no longer be showing a black screen.

If you can display pictures in playback mode but screen is black in capture mode then the CCD sensor has stopped working and needs replacing.

Black pictures with blue lines running horrizontally through them

If you are able to see the picture in the LCD in black color and if there are no damages to the LCD -the LCD is fine. There is a back light panel attached behind the LCD which may be defective.Check for the loose connections. If you need spare parts contact me.

Pentax Optio 555 LCD screen blank problem

No I don't believe it is your shutter, more than likely it is a LCD Screen problem. I would suggest you take your camera back to the shop where you purchased the camera and have it serviced under warranty. I had a customer with an Optio 550 come in and it looked like every shot was taken through 'venetian blinds' and the problem was with the LCD Screen and the camera was sent back to Pentax and repaired under warranty.
