Hi,
I was wondering is there is a legit place that I can but a new reasonably priced replacement screen for the camera? I saw Ebay (sellers are China and Hong Kong and one here in Chicago but her had a bad Google feedback and it looks like a crap shoot, also tried calling Canon and I was told that the camera was too old and no parts are available.

So now what?

TIA,
JJ

Same thing to tell: That camera is too old. A new screen might be more expensive than getting an even newer used camera.
One good thing about that camera is the fact it takes AA batteries I guess. If that's important to you, you could take a look for a used Powershot SX10 IS or SX 20 IS. Their used price is similar but they are a bit newer, have a better zoom range (more wide angle and more reach) and a better screen. (OK, they are a bit bigger, too.)

OR use the camera without the screen - it has an optical viewfinder. :mrgreen: Maybe not as much fun but if the screen is the only thing that's broken it's the cheap solution.

I have seen a few screens in the $20 range so I might try that. But as far as using the camera w/o the LCD screen hmm I do not remember what settings I had it set on ;-)

Thanks
