    Hi I have a powershot sx410 IS, the other day the view finder packed in all I have now is a bright light and cant see what picture I'm taking, its still working ok apart from I cant see anything but a bright light,

    I like this camera its ok for round the garden for quick shots with it being cheap and old I don't have to be too concerned about it,

    Does anyone know what the issue could be a wire come lose ? something more complicated, I'm usually ok with repairing most things if I know what's up with them but not clued up with cameras, if someone has any pointers what to check would be appreciated.

      Hi @martin-f I was looking for you about your question and this came up about the sx210 IS which said it's - non-performing pixels.

      I know they're different camera's but I thought it may just help :)

        "Canon SX410 IS has a Fixed Type 3″ LCD screen with a resolution of 230k dots"

        What, all 230 thousand of them? :yikes:

            @martin-f I really looked regarding your camera but nothing, then I saw that showing about the pixels and thought i'd mention it...I hope you get it sorted mate as they're not cheap camera's :)

              Thank you for taking time out to look Gail :dbgrtmb:, any information is good one lead can lead to another,

              This camera was quite cheap last summer I bought a more expensive one that I now use for best so to speak, the older camera was great for around the garden I wasn't scared of dropping it are getting it a little wet new camera only comes out when I'm clean and its a nice day lol.

                  @martin-f Your welcome as we all help one another :thumbsup:

                  Well if I had a new camera it would only be used for nice occasions...my hubby is the picture taker and he loves the Samsung ones, i'm sure he's glued it to him but can't swear on it mate :snorky:

                      What diddle I say??:heehee:..........just a suggestion:heehee:

                      I had a Canon Powershot years ago and it served me well, but then the same problem that Martin has with his happened with mine. They're made by the millions so with it comes a limited life.:dunno::snorky:

                            This one was glued to me Gail but I cant do the same with the new one, I think I have another somewhere ill see if I can find it.
                            Lol I'm a Yorkshire man :biggrin:, cant give up that easy,

                            I first take it to bits, having no idea what I'm looking at I will stare in to it, prod a few wires then put it back together still none the wiser and having extra bits than I started with,

                            Turn it on to find its more broken than it was to start with, swear a little throw it on the floor then,
