Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon A520 - LCD screen works but very very dark!

This is my friends camera so I dont know if it was ever mishandled but the camera works fine however the screen is very dark and you need to use a flashlight to see the screen. If you press the DISP button it is very clear that the LCD screen turns off as it should. All features work on the camera but is there a way to increase the light intensity on the screen? I searched online but havent found any clue as of yet. thanks!

Yes I beleive in the tools menu there is an LCD brightness option. Hit menu and to the right twice for this menu I think. (maybe in the shooting menu though.)

LCD works only in the stitch mode, it is dark in all other modes. Any suggestions? Thank you


Double check your display button. Cycle it thru the options to see if you are on lcd display. You may simply be in the mode where the lcd is shut off.

Use a memory card and memory card reader. If the images come out black you have a bad CCD in your camera.

I bet you can't solve this.


We have a Canon A520 and it was having all the symptoms noted. Searched for a resolution on numerous sites including the Canon Support site. While on the Canon Support site, I found an FAQ on "How to RESET the A520". Turn camera on, find and hold MENU button for 5+ seconds until "Reset settings to default?" screen appears. Arrow over to OK and press the SET button. When we did this the battery low indicator showed, replaced batteries with standard alkaline batteries. Everything functions properly, with no additional problems for the past 5 days. I guess the camera just lost its mind and had to be defaulted and rebooted, hope this helps.

LED display on powershot a630 is very dark. It was working fine, and then when I moved the display it suddenly went dark


pershaps that the cable inside to power the lcd is defect. or it could also be that the backlight is defect . those things can be repaired (don't do it your self) but costs could well be higher than buying a new camera

1) Try pressing the DISP button

Cracked lcd


Well, there is a Powershot A520 on eBay right now that has a good LCD screen but does not work. It would be a good deal since a new part may be fairly expensive. Item number: 160196261124. You will need a good cross point screwdriver and tweezers to make this repair

Two different Canon A520 problems.


hey guys. there is no solution that you can do it for yourself. the best solution i can give for you is take it to service centre. here in india we get charged nearly 1800rupees for servicing the lens portions.

Replacement parts for canon powershot a520????


I have a "broken" A520 that needs a new LCD. I really don't want to spend another $90 to get it fixed so may be willing to sell it for parts. Let me know. I don't know about any guide for disassembly however.
