My Canon powershot SD1000 screen isn't working. Iv'e charged the battery but when I turn the camera on, the screent is black. It won't take any pictures


It's very likely the CCD sensor that needs to be replaced. If you need to have it serviced, this place is excellent for the Powershots and not much at all if you need to have one fixed: www.camerasandparts.com
Before having it fixed, press the DISP button first and make sure you just didn't turn the display off. If you end up needing service for the Canon, that place above is really great for these cameras.

Camera turns on but an image does not appear - just a blank scree


you can cycle the display to off, on and an info screen. look for the display control on the back of the camera..it may be in the menu on the a85, but it's designed to turn off the display for certain situations. If you cycle thru and the display still doesn't work, you may have a larger issue and and A85 doesn't hold alot of value for repair... check your display setting first...

PowerShot A85 Problem CCD sensors???


The CCD is faulty ... it is a faulty designed CCD ... Canon had recalled the product for a certain period just check if it is still on and get it replaced ..... or if you need a quick fix ...get the CCD replaced by your local repair man

Blank LCD works but wont display


I have a Canon powershot A85 camera, and it works fine, but I get no picture in the LCD screen. It does take pictures and I can look at the pictures after I have taken them. I don't know if you live in Australia, if you do ring Canon on 131383. A lot of Canon camera's and also a lot of other digital camera's all have a problem with the CCD Chip. My brother has a Canon A75, he has had is for many years, and they fixed it free of charge, because it is a problem the camera has, so not something we done. Look on the internet and you will find a lot of info on it, also that it will be fixed free of charge. I also found the same information on a lot of other digital camera's, so ring Canon and find out, I hope this helps you. Kind Regards Marion
