Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a Canon Powershot 5S IS. The image on the LCD screen is not rotating when I rotate the screen, and when I snap the screen into place with the LCD side out it goes from displaying on the LCD to displaying on the viewfinder. It was working properly before, but I can't figure out how to get it back to those settings.

I have a Canon PowerShot SX 20 IS 12.1 and I am having problems with it. (I have had it for 11 months) My screen shows the image sometimes, and sometimes I have to look through the eye hole to see it. Help...


Your cable going from the mainboard of the camera, through the hinge and to the LCD is either damaged or slightly disconnected on one end. This happens with rotating LCD cameras and camcorders fairly often.

We can do the repair, but will have to check with the parts distributor to find pricing for the hinge. Typically hinges are about $25-35, and that puts the complete repair package price at about $75 which includes the hinge, installation and return shipping of the camera.

Hope this helps!

How do I turn off the flash for the canon powershot a630?


First of all, the flash can not be turned off in "Auto" mode. You can turn it off in any mode other than Auto. Would recommend Program "P" mode, which is very similar to Auto, but allows you to modify certain minor items such as flash and white balance.

Rotate your mode dial to "P", then press the button on the back with the "lightning bolt" icon. Press until the lightning bolt with a slash shows up on your LCD screen. The flash is now turned off in Program mode. Try taking a picture.

Remember, if in low light conditions you'll need to keep the camera extra steady without flash to get a clear picture. Recommend placing the camera on a table or chair (or even better, use a tripod), then using its autotimer to snap the picture.

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.

Screen reads "image too large"


Once you manipulate the pictures on your computer, they usually won't show properly on your camera when you transfer them back.

Rotated image


The auto-rotate sensor is probably faulty. Believe it's located near the base of the A95's swivel LCD, and goes bad with time from the repeated opening and closing of the LCD. But it's really not worth the effort to try to fix, as most good free photo editing software includes a photo rotate function if desired. The freeware Irfanview is an example (www.irfanview.com).

If you can live without Auto Rotate (I never use it), turn on your camera and press the menu button. Then select the second "Tools" tab. Then look down through the Tools list for the "Auto Rotate On/Off" selection. Select OFF.
