Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

1 Answer

When i turned my camera on I got a large image of a crack expanding from the lower right hand corner of the screen. Most of the screen is black and the cracks are lit up white. There is a blue patch of color in the upper left hand side of the screen and some colored lines going up and down on the left side. However there is NO visible crack to the screen nor to the touch. It must be something internal, Does it sound like my camera is a gonner? or is it fixable at a reasonable cost. My camera is a Power Shot G9,

Sounds like a cracked screen. My Rebel t1i looked the same way when i dropped it a month ago. Not sure of cost to repair i never looked into it but probably not cheap.

    Your LCD screen is cracked, there is a protective window over it on the outside, that is what you're touching when you say you can't feel it. The LCD is like the screen on your laptop, but it has a window over it to protect it from damage.

    You can get a new LCD installed for about $85 total from us if you need it repaired. Hope this helps!

The lcd is cracked.need to know where to get it fixed.it is on the inside.it looks black and white and cracked


My screen is not "cracked" although it does look like its cracked in lower right corner. It's black on that side about 1/2" from edge althe way to the top an the other side is very shaded. This makes seeing the picture impossible to see with any clarity.

Canon Power Shot A710 is


The hand with parenthesis is your image stabilization. It sounds like if your images are turning out black, you may need service.

Try hitting your display button a few times and see if anything shows up on the screen.
