Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting options do appear on screen when in picture-taking mode. Can see pictures that were taken previously, however, while showing them on TV screen, camera shuts off. Is this an expensive repair. Thanks.

The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive

Sorry. The 550 works with MMC and SD cards. While SDHC cards fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in this camera. You need to go with MMC or SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Black screen on canon a 550


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on or off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder, just like you've been doing. To turn the screen back on, press the button once more.

Did you accidentally press the DISP button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Try pressing this button one more time to see if it turns the screen back on.

Display screen not working, picture display not working


If you press the display button it might make the pictures show up. I went on a trip to NYC last year right after i bought this camera and suddenly the pics weren't displaying and i was bummed because i thought that i had broke but after :( the trip i figured out that that was what the problem was.

Camera stopped taking pictures.


well, I followed some other advice for another's problem. The suggestion was that the display button had been accidentally pushed. This was right on! I kind of thought it was something like that. I was asking my wife and kids if anybody had pushed any buttons. Never happened before. Kind of embarrassing, but the computer makes these cameras so complicated. My old eyes can barely see all the logos on that little screen. Thanks for being there, guys!

Black out on my LED screen


This is an intermittent failure of the CCD There is nothing for us to help you with in my opinion- Your camera is dying. Depending on how old your camera is and the date of manufacture it is possible that Canon will replace it or supply a refurbished one for free. This is known problem as far as I can tell
