Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
Hello! I recently dropped my Canon Powershot SX10IS. Now the display screen only works on about half of the view. Twisting the screen to rest against the camera body makes it worse, causing the entire screen to only display vertical black/white bars. The view through the eyepiece is the same as on the liveview screen. The camera still takes photos which load into the photo program and are complete images. I hope you can help us - I love my camera and miss, miss, miss using it! Thanks, Susan

SOURCE: Canon showing black screen
needs to go in to a camera shop for repair, either the shutter is broken in the lens or the CCD is bad...could be more than that but, It would have to get disassembled to determine that. I work on Olympus cameras and have found that sometines it's easier to let someone with a box of spare parts fix it...

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 the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Probably bad CCD. !!! Check if there is possibility of free of charge repair !!! Many models are repaired free with CCD broken, even warranty time is passed.

Place the camera in P, Tv, Av, M, Movie, or Stitch-assist mode. Press the Func/Set button, and scroll down to the "My Colors" icon on the left side (second or third icon down, should show "My Colors Off" at the bottom of the LCD). Now use the left/right buttons to select "B/W", and press the Func/Set button again.
