Question about Canon PowerShot A60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black image Just bought a used Canon PowerShot A60 digital camera. Menus work fine but LCD is black. When shutter button is pushed half way down the lower light blinks. I even tried to aim it at a lamp to see if it was too dark. Acts like it wants to take pictures. Lights blink, camera focuses, flash deploys, then nothing.

    I have the same black image problem in the camera mode. All camera fuctions (shutter, flash, etc.) seem to work o.k., nut no image. I can view the stored pictures in the replay mode alright.

Not capturing pictures


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:
