Why is the view finder function of my LCD not working
I purchased a PowerShot SX 160 IS about a year ago - here are the symptoms: The LCD display works - however it does not act as a view finder. I cannot see the image I'm trying to shoot. When I turn on camera the LCD defaults to "Date/Time" screen. I repeatedly set the date / time, etc. When I turn off camera, the info is lost - date / time is all reset to "0". Leaving date / time screen and pushing "menu" LCD screen is grainy. When pushing "dis" button the typical selections appear, I believe. Scrolling to the "tools" tab, I see "mute" with on/off selections. I am able to make selections and changes I make remain when I turn camer off and then back on. When I take a shot the image is completely black. I have removed and replaced the "AA" batteries and memory card. No change
Is this a good question?
