Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
Im trying to shoot pictures on my canon powershot S3 IS, but when im in picture mode the lens goes in and then goes out, and the screen does not show the room, but its just a black screen. The memory card is unlocked, I have charged batteries, and the screen shows my previous pictures I took a couple of days ago when I go into the other mode.
I just had this issue with my camera (my 15 year old son solved it for me ;-) ).
The viewfinder was active in "record" mode and the LCD was "active" because you could see a little back light but no image. The "playback" mode would let me review pictures in the LCD though so I know it is capable of showing information.
If you push the display key/button a couple of times you can see the picture move from the viewfinder to the LCD and have just a picture and or a picture and information.
So try setting the camera to "record" mode (lens comes out) and then push the "display button" which is on the back of the camera just to the right of the LCD on the lower right side several times and see if the LCD starts to work.
It could be that somehow the display button was pushed by mistake.
