Question about Canon PowerShot A700 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon A700 black screen when i want to take a picture

The camera can take pictures, the quality is as usual, but when taking the picture the screen is black...i can't see what i am doing. After taking the picture, it appears on the screen so i can see what i have photographed. This happens on all the modes, including Auto, but the video mode works just fine (i can see what i am filming).

Thank you for you're help.

Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? This button manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. Pictures will still appear momentarily when shot.

Temporary solution is to take out the memory card from the camera and use the card reader to connect to the PC/laptop. Alternatively, use the MY Computer option and click on Canon PowerShot A700 icon.

LCD screen is blank and pictures are also blank


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.

Black screen


Piece of junk that took great pictures for 1 year and now shows a black screen. Do not buy any Canon products. We also have one of these pieces of junk at work, now displays a E 18 code. Appears Canon wants to make mucho dollars by producing ****.

Can you play back pictures and is the quality of these ok ? If you can but there is no image in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty and needs replacing.
