Question about Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Blank LCD screen

I've had the Canon IXUS 400 for quite some time now and has always worked without problems. However one fine day The LCD screen went blank. It can still take photos and I can see them on the PC, it can zoom and presumably focus but there is no way I can see what I am shooting. What can I do and will it be worth repairing?

I have a PowerShot A630 and have used it since Dec 06. Three days ago the screen blacked out on me, and I can't see the pictures that I took. Everything else works and I can still take pictures, problem is I can't see what I've taken until I download them on my computer.

    My Canon A630 's screen went blank all of a sudden while taking snaps....,couldn't get back to original state after trying to reset...even to reset,we need to see the display,connected to laptop,couldn't rectify the problem....the camera's manual was of no use at all in rectifying the problem....I tried asking at G.K.Vale,Mysore(camera specialist people),they didn't know wat to do.they know only to sell cameras i feel.they referred me to Canon service center in Bangalore.....Don't know wat to do,set changes in camera etc....only option left is to take to "Canon service"

    I was using my Canon Powershot A630, which has worked well for one year, and without dropping it or getting it wet, the LCD screen went blank. It still takes photos which download fine, zooms, flash goes on and off, but LCD screen is dead. Tried turning camera off and on a few times, and installing fresh batteries to no avail.

Blank LCD screen

First, let's try the obvious. Did you accidentally hit the "DISP" button (bottom row of buttons, third from the left)?

If not, you mention you can see the photos on the PC. Do they look fine, or are they also black or distorted?

Re Camera

If it also takes blank pictures, sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. Don't know if dropping had anything to do with it. But if it's a defective CCD, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status.

Canon screen problem

It sounds like your camera has encountered either a bad CCD issue, which is the image sensor capture device under the lens. Usually when it goes bad, you get crazy colors, or problems with the image. Or you might have a broken LCD, which can be replaced for fairly cheap as well. It is kind of hard to tell from your description with the problem. There is a pretty good company that might have a replacement CCD for you, they usually sell them for cheap 15-25 dollars, or a replacement LCD for around 60-100 dollars.
