Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
I was using my camera yesterday. I had it on manual and some of the settings got changed. Now when I put it on Auto I can't take a picture and there is a black screen with different kind of stuff. On the left hand side there is a square, a swaure with an eye and it looks like a ittle sail boat with a capital S Up in the right there looks like an arrow pointing down and a capital A a circle with a little circle inside and the words AUTO, down in the right hand corner is the number 126. I think when I canged the settings on manual I did something to the Auto. Thank you
The "stuff" you see on your screen is some of the icons that Canon uses and is perfectly normal--the problem is that nothing from the outside world is getting to the screen, so it's black. Could be a broken CCD (not good--see www.usa.canon.com about fixing it) but let's try some easy stuff first, like pressing the DISP. button below your viewfinder once or twice. Also, eliminate the obvious: when you turn on the camera, does the lens pop out? Does the black metal lens cover open up so you can see the lens? Try removing and replacing the batteries. Also, if you feel adventurous, reset the camera to its defaults--i.e., wipe out any changes you may have made by accident--by removing/replacing the CR1220 date battery under the rubber cover at the side of the camera (you'll have to reset the time and date after you reinstall it). Good luck!
