Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

3 Answers

Dark LCD I have an A70, about a year old. The problem is the LCD screen is very dark. It is almost completely black unless I point the camera dirrectly at light. If I take a picture with the viewfinder the picture is exactly what the LCD screen looks like. This happened as we were using the camera. I also cannot view any of the pictures in the camera. I no the display is not completly out because it works to access the menu screen. It wasn't droped or anything. I can't find any setting to change or fix the problem. Any ideas????

I had the same problem. I called tech support had the guy helped me fix it. First turn the camera off and switch to movie mode. Then take the batteries and the memory card out. Hold the power button down for 3 seconds. Put the batteries back in and turn the camera on. (the camera should be working at this point) . Then switch the camera to auto mode and hold the "menu" button down for about 15 seconds. A screen should ask you if you want to reset the defalt settings. Hit yes and you are done. Hope this helps.

Is it possible that you've gone into M (manual) mode and the shutter speed is fast and a small aperture (large number) been selected? Or has the Exposure compensation been adjusted to be -2? Does it do the same thing in fully automatic mode? It certainly sounds like some setting has been adjusted incorrectly.

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder,...


I had a A70 that would still take pictures, but the screen did not show a picture. I did some research and found that this is somewhat a common problems with some of the Canon Powershots to include the A70 where the LCD screens expire. I believe that if the camera gets too hot, such as being left in a vehicle the LCD seperates. I sent my camera to Canon and they fixed it for free. It took about 4-6 weeks to receive my camera back, and now it works perfectly. They did a great job on communicating with me, and fixing the issue. I think that alone is worth buying a Canon. The link below should help you.

Dark LCD Screens and no flash


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)
