Question about Digital Cameras

I can't see the picture on the LCD screen before I take the picure. Is there anything I can do to correct this? I have a SD850 IS and I've had it only 2 months.

The screen just wont turn on. i turn on the actual camera but no picure shows on the screen


Try to shoot a picture and download to pC. If it is ok then your lcd is bad. You need to replace it.

Lcd is blurred, but when you took the photo the picture is very fine.


When you are taking the picture are you following the correct procedure? Press shutter button and hold half way till camera focuses. Then without releasing it press it fully down.

Canon sd850 is cracked LCD screen


Sounds like a cracked LCD screen. You may be able to fix it if you can find a replacement screen. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement. Don't recommend that you try this yourself, unless you have some experience and are comfortable with electronics.

Otherwise, the cost of professional repair is usually beyond the value of this camera. A better option is to sell the camera on ebay for other repair hobbyists to attempt replacing the screen for themselves. You actually may get a good price for the camera IF it's still capable of taking pictures.

Not able to see the photographs on LCD/Camera Screen


Hi

Its hard to say 100% without more information...

Can you take a picture and it looks good when you transfer it to your computer? Is that what you meant? Can you see the menus, or do you see nothing at all on the screen at any time?

Its possible your camera is in a 'power save' mode and the LCD is turned off to save battery power. Try pressing the "Disp" button once and see if it turns on. If not, press it again... did it turn on? This happens to a lot of people.

If that is not the solution, then please contact me and let me know.

Good luck from: Darntoothysam com (a digital camera repair business)

LCD Display


As far as I am aware, the 400D doesn't have a live preview mode.

What you are describing is perfectly normal and is how 99% of digital SLR cameras behave.

Are you sure it used to do this?
