CANON POWER SHOT SD750 DOESNT TAKE PICTURES BLACK SCREEN
I turned my camera on to take a picture and the camera powered up but my problem is my screen is black and you cant see any of the pictures I take. All the pictures i took before this happen are shown on my screen when I view them. I also can view my displays from my menue buttons (fun.set, display, flash on or off ect.) but i cant view anything i want to take photos of what can i do before spending money on someone to fix it or buy another? Could it be one of the shutters???
ps! I never dropped it
I have the same problem. I had it start up with no image once or twice in the last couple of months but now nothing I do will make it take pictures or display what the lens captures (problem with the CCD, not the display). I can display previous pictures. So far, I've reset back to defaults, taken the battery out numerous times, tried multiple memory cards, and I'm about to charge the battery to see if that helps. I have a Canon SD700 IS. This is my fifth Canon. They all have taken awesome pictures but there is only one that I haven't had issues with. I guess that makes me stupid for buying Canon. I've had my last one, I think.

Tv is "shutter priority" mode. The Canon SD cameras do not have that mode. Instead see Fix 5A of the below link. 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, sometimes with lines, 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.
Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.
Eagle 23: Press the "Disp" button and your LCD screen will turn on right away.
nazmil_mj: Can you take pictures or are they totally black as well? If you can only take black pictures then your LCD screen is fine and your CCD is bad or your aperture is stuck. Either of these means you need your lens replaced.
Don't bother asking a store for help (though you can if you like) they will tell you it's not fixable or will just send it to Canon and charge you $175 for the repair.
We are an affordable digital camera repair business, we can replace your lens for about $75!
DON'T DUMP YOUR CAMERA JUST YET! I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE SOME INFORMATION ON YOUR CAMERA AND SOME THINGS FOR YOU TO TRY. FIRST YOUR CAMERA SITE SAYS THERE IS A SWITCH ON THE BACK SIDE OF YOUR CAMERA THAT SAYS " DISP " WHICH I ASSUME MEANS DISPLAY. PLEASE TRY PUSHING THIS BUTTON AND SEEING IF THIS WORKS? NEXT YOU NEED TO TRY TO REST YOUR CAMERA. THAT IS DONE BY GOING TO SETUP>CHOOSE RESET> HOLD DOWN MENU KEY FOR 5 SECONDS AND SEE IF THAT SOLVES THE PROBLEM. THE NEXT SOLUTION MIGHT BE THAT THE CAMERA FIRMWARE MAY NEED TO BE RELOADED TO RESET THE CAMERA TO FACTORY DEFAULTS. I KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF THINGS, BUT THEY REALLY DON'T HAVE A SIMPLE ANSWER TO THIS PROBLEM. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217. GOOD LUCK!
