Question about Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

No visual when I turn the camera on

I've just deleted all images on the camera. Now I can't see a visual in shooting or playback modes. Just a blank screen. I tried taking a picture - still no visual. I tried to download this picture to PC and its just a black image... I've tried switching off and on again several times with no joy. Anyone know why?

    I am experiencing the same problem.  When taking photos, a blank black screen displays and when turning camera to view mode, its just a black screen.  Can view old photos from another memory card, but no new photos can be taken/seen.  Does anyone have a solution?

This may seem crazy, but any chance you pushed the display button by accident? This toggles the screen on/off.

Nikon D90 Image playback Mode


Hi - My D80 allows the length of time the the image displays to be set using the menu system. You shouldn't have any trouble setting this. Mine can be set from 5 sec to 10 minutes. Lookup Monitor-Off in your manual.

I have a Canon IXUS 960 IS. The screen shows no image when taking a photo yet shows menu information and works fine for playback. Is this a fault or have I accidently made a wrong setting somewhere. Any...


Try pressing "DISP." which is the small button on the bottom left under the thumb-wheel. That turns on or off the LCD in shooting mode. In Playback mode, it shows shooting information etc.

LCD has gone blank


Hi this is tech crazy

Based on the information you have provided, it appears that you may have
encountered this issue. To determine if the CCD (image sensor) is
working properly, please follow these steps:

1. Insert a memory card with known good images on it into the camera.

2. Power the camera on to the Playback mode.

3. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel, and observe
the LCD.

a. If the images are displayed properly, please proceed to step
four.

b. If the images are not displayed, or a "NO IMAGES" message
appears, please ensure that the memory card contains known good images.

c. If the card contains known good images, and the issue persists
with a second memory card, the camera will require service.

4. Switch the camera to the Camera mode. You may use any shooting mode
(i.e. Auto, Manual).

5. Press the DISPLAY (DISP) button to enable the LCD panel.

6. Point the camera at a well-lit scene and observe the LCD and/or
viewfinder. If the scene the camera is pointed at appears on the LCD
and/or viewfinder, the CCD is operating properly. If the LCD and/or
viewfinder remain black, the camera requires service


Hope this solution helps you a lot

Please rate me on the above said solution

My screen is blank on all modes except playback and setup


If you can playback captured images ok but in capture mode your screen goes blank and taken shots are black then the CCD sensor in your camera is faulty and has to be replaced. Nikon agent -if you can find one- will do this for you but it may be uneconomical repair on this entry level model.

Shooting mode will not operate


Your camera has a defective CCD imager. Please return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and they will replace the CCD at no charge to you. This is a known issue and should be covered under extended warranty. Good luck my friend. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
