I have a recent problem with my Canon Powershot G9: when I turn on the camera to take the picture the LCD screen is black - I can´t see the motive I want to catch. After the picture is taken the scree lights up and I can inspect the picture. Have you any idea what might be the problem??
Bought the camera in New York in March this year.

It is not the problem with the camera. When the last picture is displayed, you can turn the control dial (the vertical ring around the four-way directional buttons) or use the right and left arrows to navigate to the previous or next image.
If it takes normal pictures even with the black display, your LCD display is likely shot. If photos come out black, chances are that your shutter is stuck in the closed position. Sorry, but there is no safe DIY fix for either problem The camera will require professional repair.
Last year my Canon PSA60 got the black screen in shooting mode. Menu display was normal and so the picture review mode.
Canon service center replaced the image sensor for free. When it
happened again, I asked the service center for unit exchange
(trade-in/upgrade program). Now I have my PowerShot S5IS. Good bye

I have a Canon powershot A85 camera, and it works fine, but I get no picture in the LCD screen. It does take pictures and I can look at the pictures after I have taken them. I don't know if you live in Australia, if you do ring Canon on 131383. A lot of Canon camera's and also a lot of other digital camera's all have a problem with the CCD Chip. My brother has a Canon A75, he has had is for many years, and they fixed it free of charge, because it is a problem the camera has, so not something we done. Look on the internet and you will find a lot of info on it, also that it will be fixed free of charge. I also found the same information on a lot of other digital camera's, so ring Canon and find out, I hope this helps you.
