When I turn on my Canon SX 240 HS (two years old), the screen

Resolved Question:

When I turn on my Canon SX 240 HS (two years old), the screen doesn't always light up. If I keep switching it off and on it will eventually light up, but it'd driving me crazy. Is this repairable or do I just have to buy a new camera?

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

The LCD controller is faulting, this is why it keeps switching off as it is shorting out.

The problem is for this model, unless it is covered under warranty, the cost of repairing exceeds the value of the camera, and it is more economically feasible to replace the camera, if you really want to have he screen working.

If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, ***** ***** this might be the case. It looks like it's worth taking out an extended warranty on a new one.

It always is Liz, also insurance if you can.

Best to try to get 3 years from these devices.
