Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

6 month old Canon Power shot S5IS flip out LCD screen will not keep connection, the screen goes blank and can not be used. I primarily use this feature to take my shots. When I opened the screen to take my shot I notice I had to move it around and the screen came on. Now it will not come on no matter how I move the screen, up, down, right left, twisted into the body. It does not work. Looking at the body of my camera the screen is not loose, nothing looks abnormal from the outward appearance. My camera works like normal with the screen closed and I can use the view finder. I need to find the warranty information on this camera as well. Thanks for your help. . Ivy

I would not try myself. It is likely to require very delicate connections. If you don't care about using the camera, then go ahead. If you care, see what a repair job will cost.

Canon S5 IS -LCD screen turns off just before clicking into place


That is typical and expected when the wires inside cable inside the hinge start to wear out. It's called planned obsolescence.

Unfortunately even though it's a very common failure, very repairable, and the rest of the camera is probably going to work for another 20 years, Canon will not sell you that part or install a new one. It has very fine wires inside it, and two proprietary connectors on each end.

They will offer to take your old camera in trade for a discount that is close to worthless, because the prices they quite on replacement cameras is about what you can buy them for new on the internet.

The good news is that you can still do everything though the eyepiece, except use the articulating screen.

Canon Power Shot SX10 IS - I've had camera for about 4 months. As of a week ago, I can only use small view finder for taking photos; the 2.5 screen for viewing does not work now. Able to view photos...


You can reset the camera to factory settings. If after that, you still have the same problem, make valid the Canon warranty since it's 4 months old.
