The LCD on my PowerShot SX10 has stopped working - is there a reset or some other way to fix it?

It won't display at all - any suggestions?

You said the display so I take it the camera works just fine otherwise, ie being able to downnload pictures etc.

 

I would imagine the ribbon cable, the back light or the display itself is at fault.

 

Since it has a 'twistable' display I would imagine the cable harness to the display has been damaged with all the movement  and stresses  the cable suffers. If you imagine a very thin wire and you keep waggling it about it will soon fracture and break.

 

This is what *may* have happened - it did happen to my A650. I managed to repair myself by getting a complete new cable assembley, it is no easy task since you have to strip the camera and handle very tiny screws afterall, I am an electronics engineer ....  a job certainly not for a novice so to speak.

 

By all means try a full reset in the menu, but I doubt that will cure the problem for the reasons given.

 

Best advice would be to seek a Canon repair agent near your locality.
