Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera
With the switch mode in either setting, the screen shows no image. It shows the icons.The camera will take a picture, flash will work, then when switched into play back mode, the propere icons show up but no image. I have pulled the battery, card out and changed them both, but to no advantage. Thanks for your help. Duane firstname.lastname@example.org

Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.
Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.
If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
