Hi did you take proper shooting mode not a manual setting that causes too much under like dark? If not,
would you try to set ccd clean manual mode, then you should see the ccd unit surface through mirror box. (in front of bayonet lens mount) then ccd unit or main pcb is the cause. but if you can not see the ccd unit (image sensor unit), you have shutter unit defective. if ccd or main pcb probelm then you have to bring to canon repairable place. but shutter unit defective then you can bring any local repair shop who is skillful enough. Thanks and good luck with you!

Hello, On the C743 this will require that the LCD unit be replaced. This will get very costly real quick unless you can do it yourself. Not much more I can tell you.

Picture tube

what kind of display have, totally black or only a raster?. if you are watching a local channel then only a raster with sound, it could be a tuner problem. now if totally black screen you need to check if the flyback transformer has high voltage coming out at the anode cap. and then the tube has heater light. this case can be hand held with a trained technician if you don'y have an idea on how to deal with it just leave it to the tv technician for safety reason. however at least you have an idea what to expect if you decide to hire for somebody to fix.

Samsung TXN3275HF 32" TV wont

after 4 or 5 yrs EHT ( transformer that supplies voltage to CRT TUBE - TV TUBE ) becomes weak - then 1 of the indication is ...'' grrrrrr '' like noise comes ---no picture , no sound - (in case if picture & audio comes also it won't stay for much time) that noise is from EHT solution is EHT ( also called as flyback transformer ) should be replaced....... {{ few details about EHT---- its size will be around 3inch X 2inch X 2inch ---it will have 2 or 3 knobs to adjust focus , brightness ------ at bottom around 10 pins will be there ------- from EHT 1 thick red colour cable goes to CRT TUBE --------- on EHT its part number will be there }} -------- so if user is a technical person having idea about components ( resistors, transistors, diodes, etc ) , having tools like multimeter ( to check components) , soldering iron, soldering lead, flux, desoldering wig ( for removing components), etc also little experience in servicing field( compulsory) ----------------- then user can remove EHT from main board ---- take to electronic shop ----- buy same type EHT --------- fix to mainboard ( knobs on EHT should be adjusted according to picture --- after switching TV --- this adjustment is very important ) ----------iam from bangalore (09986222774, ----- here EHT's price will be around Rs 250 ( US $ 6 ) & for my customers (in bangalore) i will take another Rs 500 (US $ 11) as sevice charge......i don't have any idea about EHT ' s price & service charge in your place.........since it is very risky job i suggest to contact TV service engineer ------- because they are highly experienced & can fix this component very easily. ------------ [[ sometimes along with EHT another component called transistor ( big in size - situated close to EHT - it will have 3pins - its size will be 1inch X 1/2 inch X 1/2 cm --approximately ---- black in colour ----- fixed to aluminium metal ) --- will also gets deffective --- so this component also should be checked ]]

Nikon D40 taking blank/black pictures after I wiped my lens.

Try removing the lens and re-fix it.. Some times the lens is not sensed properly if it is not fixed right.
