Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I replaced my LCD Screen on my Canon SD450. The camera would start up, but the screen wouldn't show properly, now the camera won't power up at all. The power cable for the screen is bent from trying to get the connector seated properly.

Might have broken/shorted a trace in the ribbon cable that supplies the LCD with data, use a continuity tester on all traces to see if you have an open or short. Use the alligator clips of a multimeter to grab 2 sewing pins to use as probes as the traces are very small.

I can no longer see anything on the screen!


Did you try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera (manually turns the screen on and off)? If that doesn't correct the problem, then the problem is likely a loose connection of either the flex cable to your LCD screen, or the power cable to the LCD backlight. In that case you'll need to reseat them to make sure that they're making a good connection. Here's an example repair of an LCD that shows how to get in there. The red circled items are what need to be checked and reseated for a better connection.

I crushed the screen of my Canon Powershot SD450 camera. Pls. estimate cost of screen repair. Is it on the screen thats cracked cozi can still take photos but cant see them.


Many screen breaks happen to ruin the LCD from visibly displaying a picture. On some cameras, the screen is attached to the back plate of the camera and are very easy to replace with a new one. Some screens are attached to a video pc board and may ruin the board from displaying anything. Your best bet is to have it repaired professionally by one of our top repair providers and get an estimate first. I have repaired many good digital cameras with a LCD replacement, but I also had to purchase a broken used one for parts because new parts became to expensive to repair the one with a broken LCD. BTW: all digital cameras contain many PC boards and if you can still take pictures means the boards that control your lens, motors, CCD, and I/O boards are still intact and functional. Hope this helps - fotobean

SD450 lcd went black


Please see the following post, and look for the SD400 LCD repair link. Click on the pictures of that site for larger pics. Follow the disassembly instructions, but skip the lengthy LCD removal portion. Instead just look for the LCD connector as shown on the front of the camera. Unseat the cable from the connector as shown by lifting the connector gate, BUT DO NOT unthread the cable through the camera. Merely examine its ends, and if it looks dirty gently clean it with a drop of alcohol on a Qtip. Give it some time to dry, and then reseat it back into its connector, close the connector gate, reassemble the camera and try it out.

Make sure you also read the following Flash Capacitor Shock Warning post on the above blog site before proceeding.

Good Luck and hope it works. If it doesn't the next step would be to check out the electrical wire power connection to the back light.

Camera will not power up


I had the same experience after drying out my elph sd450. I sprayed contact cleaner into the battery cavity and reinserted the battery. The camera came back to life as if by magic. If you buy a contact cleaner, test it on something to make sure it doesn't melt the plastic. I would suggest puting some contact cleaner on a q-tip and wiping the contacts on both the camera side and the battery. I sill notice that the camera balks sometimes upon re-insertion of the battery, so I do the contact wipe again, and it seems to do the job.

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera


maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.

Scratched LCD Screen


Not really. You're pretty much screwed ;[ You'll have to bite the bullet and get a replacement screen, or scavange ebay for a dead camera with a good screen. Good luck
