Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My canon powershot A75 stopped displaying pictures (or taking them, it seems).  The flash goes off, the shutter is open, and the display shows.  Just no picture and no display.  Do I just buy a new one?

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:

No display powershot a75


Did you get a solution to your problem? I am experiencing the exact same thing with my A75. Still takes pictures and displays them for the 2 second preview, then back to black. And they download fine, too. But I get the same black screen in every mode except stitch assist and movie mode. Thanks.

I suspect your camera has a defective CCD which is quite common for the A75.   Canon is aware of the problem and has issued a recall for affected cameras.  I have had mine repaired under this recall.  Here is a link with some pictures which show what the problem looks like.

Camera does not display the pictures


Have you checked to see if there are picture files when you click the shutter. If so, do the resulting picture files show black images? If so, this would be a defective CCD imager. Canon would also fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
