Customer Question

I have a Canon SX 260HS. The screen has started going dark without notice. If I push on the side of the screen sometimes the view comes back. This is an intermittent problem but renders the camera unusable.

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

The fact that the screen function comes back, with some torsion or pressure, indicates that there is a loose or nearly-broken connection or connector involved.

To cure that, skilled and informed disassembly with the right tools + perhaps replacement parts, would be needed.

To contact Canon USA about repair for this problem, call 1-800-OK-CANON, or use their online facility at

and use one of the three buttons there.
