Hi.My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with almost 30 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

The problem is most likely caused by a loose connector between the LCD components and the circuit board it connects to.

This is going to require disassemblingthe camera to troubleshoot and repair byan experienced camera repairman. You may want to check locally for a camera repair shop in your area, or, if you need assistance finding a shop, please let me know and I'll locate one for you.

Hi Janine.

Here's a link to a list of camera repair shops in Australia. I hope one of them is close to you. Otherwise, I would recommend sending it to an authorized Canon service center.
