Question about Canon PowerShot A1100 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a powershot A1100IS. The problem is that when taking pictures, the images do not show on the screen, I need to look through the viewfinder. After the picture is taken, the image will show on the screen. I assume it is turned off in a menu item but I do not find it in the menu. can you help? Tx. Kim

I had the same problem. I just went into the menu under the tools tab, and clicked 'reset all' (scroll all the way to the bottom). I'm not sure what setting was changed, but my screen images all came back! (I had also switched out memory cards but that didn't seem to make a difference). I'm so glad, I love this camera and have taken many great pictures with it! Hope this works for others.........

I own a canon PowerShot S51S. When I open the camera to take a picture , it is blurred. But when I download to my pc or look them after in the camera it's O.K. Any help would be appreciate.. Lise


I'm not totally sure of your question or concern but let me attempt to show some light on what it is I think you are asking. The Canon PowerShot S51S is a huge step up from a pocket point and shooter, this is a very powerful camera with features that would make some Pro camera whimper. So to the problem I think you are having. The camera is fitted with an optical viewfinder but the image you are seeing isn't "Through the lens" in fact it's a digital image of what the camera sees and therefore will not appear clear to your eye. The image will look a little grainy and slightly out of focus. If the in focus indicator is showing your image is focused then take the picture as long as the focus indicator light is on then the picture will be in focus. The problem you are experiencing is compounded if you wear glasses. This is one place where you need technology to rule. I know what you are feeling believe me because I still have problems with a digital viewfinders. Right now I use seven different cameras one of them has the digital viewfinder and it just make me stop and think then rely on the in focus indicator. Hope this was a help but as long as the camera is functioning properly you have no concerns. By the way you have chosen a great camera for creative photography. Happy Holidays from Robert in Canada

The camera won't register an image to take a picture of.


LCD monitor electric film contacts must be fixed. If you can not do it yourself then please contact with the nearest authorized Canon Service. I think it is too easy to fix it so it is not need much money.

Camera's screen is black, but still takes pictures.


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, try pressing the DISP button once with the camera turned on.

Blank screen


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP (Display) button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save battery power. You could then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn it back on, just the DISP button one more time.

Blured viewfinder


Look at the viewfinder on the camera.

Now look on the LEFT side of the viewfinder; just above the swivel-screen.

You will see a little thumb wheel there.

That is the focus for the viewfinder. Move it up and down to bring the viewfinder into focus. (Don't forget to do this while you are looking through the viewfinder so you can see what you are adjusting.)

Easy fix. :)
