The Camera won’t turn on
This problem can be caused by a few things with a Canon camera. The first is to make sure that the battery is fully charged and properly inserted. It’s possible that the battery wasn’t properly inserted even if it was charged. It is possible that the charger wasn’t properly plugged in to an outlet, causing the battery not to charge.
Clean the metal terminals of the battery. You can remove dirt and grime using a dry cloth. The camera will not turn on if the battery compartment door does not close securely.
The Lens will not retract fully
This could be because you accidentally opened the battery compartment cover when operating the camera. Close the battery compartment cover. Next, turn on the camera and then the lens should retract.
You might also find debris on the lens housing that can cause it to stick when it retracts. When you fully extend the lens, wipe it with a dry cloth. If the lens is damaged, your PowerShot camera might need to be repaired.
The LCD will not display the image
Canon PowerShot cameras may have a DISP button that can turn the on or off. To turn on the LCD, press the DISP button. This is common when Canon PowerShot cameras have an electronic viewfinder option to frame photos. The electronic viewfinder may activate the live screen. To switch back to the LCD, press the DISP button.
The LCD Screen Flickers
The LCD screen image can flicker if the camera is held near a fluorescent lamp. The fluorescent light should be moved away from your camera. If you are shooting in low light, the LCD may flicker. If the LCD screen appears to flicker under all shooting conditions, it may be time for a repair.
In My Photos, White Dots Appear
The flash’s light reflecting off dust and other particles in air can cause white dots. To take a photo, either turn off the flash or wait for the air to clear before you start.
There is also the possibility that the lens may have spots, which can cause problems with image quality. You should ensure that the lens has been cleaned. If the problem persists, the image sensor could be causing white dots in the photos.
The Actual Photo Looks Different from the Image I Sighted on the LCD
The LCD image on some Canon point-and-shoot cameras doesn’t match the actual image. For example, LCDs may only display 95 percent or less of an image shot. If the subject is very close to the lens, this difference can be exaggerated. Check the specifications of your Canon PowerShot camera for details about scene coverage.
I can’t get the images from my camera to display on my TV
It can be difficult to figure out how photos will appear on a TV screen. The Menu button is used to select the Settings tab and match the settings of the camera with the TV’s video system. PowerShot cameras may not display photos on TV screens because they don’t have either an HDMI output port or an HDMI output capability.
