Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD screen does not show anything

The camera was working great. But suddenly, although ecerything else was working fine, the LCD screen did not show anything on switching the camera on. The camera is able to click photographs and they can then be viewed offline on a computer. I've tried with fresh batteries and all display modes. :( Any idea what the problem could be, and how this can be rectified. I live outside the US. Thanks.

Hi, my brother has a camera like yours, and he had the same problem, it is most likely a problem with the CCD Chip. It is a problem that a lot of digital camera's have. Go on the Canon website in your Country, and if it is a problem with the CCD Chip then ring Canon and they will fix it free of charge.

Fuji Finepix F30 Suddenly takes only all pink screens (no image)

This sounds like one of two problems -
Either an LCD screen problem or a bad CCD sensor.
A LCD screen problem would indicate one of two of the following - it was cracked, or the cable inside is either damaged or moved out of the plug and need to be reseated.

A bad CCD sensor would show a pink screen on cameras, but would also show menus on the screen as well, do you see those? The CCD basically captures the image the lens is seeing and translates it to an image the camera can save. Generally the CCD can not be replaced separately from the lens and will require an entire lens assembly for repair.

DCR HC-42 LCD screen problem

Just look for the post by 'airshod'. He has even put up a couple of links to pdf files with photos of the whole procedure. I used them and got mine fixed. Exactly the same problem as yours.
Be careful, though: Jackstar's (aka airshod) instructions leave this out, which you will discover after putting the whole camera back together (which is a pain): the ViewFinder (VF) will go dead, plus the picture in the LCD will not reverse when you reverse the LCD panel (which means that when you flip the panel to watch yourself while you video yourself, the picture will be upside-down, although you don't need to worry about it being recorded properly, of course. It's just a pain to aim the correctly when it's not showing the right way up!). Airshod had the same happen to him.
If you need further info on the VF dying after re-assembly, look at this link:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t901516-flex_cable_replaced_but_now_vf_dead

Unfortunately I won't have time to try the suggestion for a while, so I won't be of much help. I guess a camera is more useful with a broken VF and a working LCD panel, than the other way around.
Sony really ought to have addressed this issue by now. It's not reasonable to expect the camera to loose its LCD after only a year or two!

Nikon d40x LCD screen stopped working

Have you tried the 'Menu' button? If you've turned off 'Review' in the settings menu, the screen doesn't show anything after you take a picture. If the screen doesn't come on when you push the 'Menu' button with a charged battery installed, your camera will need to be repaired.
