CAnnon Powershot A630 LCD screen will not light up when trying to take a pic. I can, however view old pics that I've already taken.


First press the DISP or DISPLAY button to see if that corrects the problem. If not, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Hi, I have a Canon Powershot A700 digital camera and I am facing a problem with it. The 'Mode Switch' button, which changes the mode from Shoot/Record mode to Play/View mode is not working....


If you have the manual for this camera turn to page 15.
This tells you how to switch between Shooting Mode and Playback Mode.
This is achieved simply by pressing the DISP button.
This button is located below and to the left of the FUNC/SET button.
Pressing DISP repeatedly toggles between Shooting Mode and Playback Mode.
I would suggest you try these steps with your Mode Switch in both positions alternately.

Mode switch has broken off and the camera screen says no image


it probably remained locked on the viewer and there are no images capture stored into the camera ..that's why it says that ....and it must be a way to restore the function of that button cause no matter if you lock it permanently into the the shooting mode its still a issue of getting pics out of it ....most cameras have to be on viewing mode when are plugged on the data cable ...but ..if you can open it and switch it on the mode that allow you to take pictures...you can always get the pictures from the SD card directly via an card reader ...adapter ( USB) that cost only a few dollars...

Unable to actually see the photo in progress in the lcd!


I suppose you are referring to EOS XSi.
Hit the menu button
Go to the fifth menu, and choose the "Live View function settings"
On "Live Viwe shoot." select "Enable" option"
Go back to shooting modes.
The option works only with non automatic modes.
Hit the "SET" button each time you want to see the current picture in the screen, instead through the viewfinder.
Set to MF on the lens switch "AF-MF"

Please let me now if it works.

Canon 500d Screen won't display object to be shot


First of all, the live view mode will work only in creative zones, that is from mode P. P, Tv, Av, M modes. Put the camera into one of these modes and push the Set button that is located behind the camera, amidst the four direction buttons, and you're live! Also note that to autofocus here, you should use the zoom minus button, a button with a star beside it.

Did not get a disc with my dpix 5200 camera im unable to send pic


Prakticam, unhelpfully don't have anything for their cameras more than a couple of years old and don't seem to care if you mislay the disc you paid for.So be warned, don't buy Praktica. I have the 5200, you have firstly to put your usb in computer, switch on camera, switch camera to view pictures taken mode, and because it auto switches to take picture mode you then carefully attach camera end into camera whilst camera is still switched on! Then go to my computer and click on F: the pictures download. Then to save them click on first pic, hold shift key down and then click on last pic they should all highlight, right click and then hover 'send to' and send by left clicking to my documents. I remember that it took me 4 hours to work it out. Found this looking for manual to download, cannot change date now......

LCD screen not on when camera on?


You hit the EVF/LCD button near the "eye hole". When this is pressed it will cycle viewing through either the optical viewfinder or the LCD screen. This display is controlled independantly on each of the modes: shooting, or viewing. This is so you can set the camera to view pics before taking them from the optical viewfinder and view pics once taken from the LCD or vice-versa.

Please see similar problem titled "black screen". Welsbar posted a possible solution as a clarification request. It involves switching your picture mode to TV and changing the shutter speed to 15 seconds, depressing the shutter button for 7 seconds, then opening battery enclosure. Repeat as necessary - I did this twice before I started to see anything on the screen. Twice more before photos start to look okay. Don't know yet if this is a lasting solution, but at least now I can start using the camera again and find out!

According to Welsbar, the problem is an internal part (iris?) that gets stuck when camera hasn't been used frequently.
