Screen stays black

When you transfer this pics at pc... they are black or purple too? Could be a problem with the LCD screen viewer or CCD Image sensor go to bad. In both cases this isn't a job that you could solve yourself; this wrong include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

I suggest check THIS LINK for additional details in this previous solutions for an Defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) and next contact your Canon service. I strongly suggest (taking into consideration the age of your camera) to evaluate the cost of repair versus the cost of a new camera with similar features, before making a final desicion.

Hope this helps

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS

I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

I tried their solutions twice and it WORKS. My S3 is working fine now.

My screen is blank on all modes except playback and setup

If you can playback captured images ok but in capture mode your screen goes blank and taken shots are black then the CCD sensor in your camera is faulty and has to be replaced. Nikon agent -if you can find one- will do this for you but it may be uneconomical repair on this entry level model.

The shutter in the lens is stuck closed. You need to take the camera to a shop where they will replace the lens assembly.
