Re: no picture in eye piece viewer
How long have you owned the unit? How long has it been doing this? Do all other playback functions work just not record? Once I have more information I will be happy to assist you further so please don't reject my solution until we have solved your issue. Thanks, Lee

Did you try pressing the display button several times? in both viewing mode and record mode? Cycle through all display modes, s you get used to the button, so it does not trow you off when it happens again.
When the display is to dark or to light, the manual says:
Adjust the brightness of the backlight (page 18).
On page 18 it says:
This sets the brightness of the LCD screen. When viewing images in bright outside light if [Brightness] is set to [Normal], reset to [Bright]. However, the battery power may decrease faster under such condition.
You also can press the button with the > logo, to change between view pictures and record.
If half screen is affected it will be either a board (LCD and Plasma have different names) but in those one board drives each side of the screen unit--worst case is the display panel itself which is fatal from a cost point of view.
hi, i am del and the problem i face is the screen appears dark with circular dots resembling stars in the sky on a dark night. images cannot be viewed and when i click there appear some horizontal lines. what could be the problem? Can you help please? Rgds del
Dark as in gone or dark as in the image is still viewable? How does the onscreen menu look when the image is dark/gone? If the onscreen menu looks right and the image is still dark, you might want to check the cables or another input. If another device using different cables and another input looks fine, you may only have a problem with the input/cable you are using to view the movie. If the onscreen menu is also dark, then I would think there is an internal problem that needs looking into.
The most common cause of this is a failed image sensor. Usually the playback mode will let you view pictures taken before the issue happened just fine and you will also be able to view the menu system just fine. When viewing the screen in an image taking mode, however, there is typically discolorations, horizontal or vertical lines, image bluring or distortions, or simply a black screen.
This situation, if caused by the image sensor, has to serviced and cannot be fixed by the user. If you are within your one year warranty and no user damage has been done to the camera, the camera will be fixed at no charge. If beyond the 12 month period however the customer may opt to have the unit repaired at a cost or take advantage of the Canon Loyalty Program and upgrade to refurbished S3 IS at an alternate discounted price.
