    Preparing to take a picture but the screen is black, as if the lens cap is on. We are able to take the picture but when you view the picture of course there is no image. We have scrolled through the menu and reset all operations to the default with no success.

I have the same problem with my flawless-up-until-today S2-IS. I read in another link the problem is related to moisture causing the iris to stick, requiring a forced reboot. This worked for me, but after putting away the camera for a few days the prblem returned and needed the trick again.

When you turn on the camera and are able to see menus but the image displays are dark, try the following:
1. Place the program selector to "Tv" setting
2. Press the self-timer selector (twice) until you see the timer icon on the screen
3. Press the shutter button to take a photo; the self-timer begins to beep a countdown
4. Open the battery cover BEFORE the timer runs out.
5. After a second, close the battery cover and the camera will power cycle automoatically.
6. The displays should return to normal.
You may have to repeat this a few times to get it to work. Good luck.

Was dropped. Now will do everything EXCEPT take photos. Lens, display, flash, etc. etc. all work fine. Just no screen image or photo when in "shoot" mode.


Sounds like the CCD or a stuck shutter blade. Try this place: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only service Canons and they are the only place we recommend for the Canons. It's all they work on and they are about half the price of most shops, plus the work is just excellent through them.

No image on LCD of Canon A520


2 possibilities,
Either CCD Imager is defective and does not produce image signal Or IRIS / Aperture is stuck in lens assembly. In both cases qualified camera tech can fix it.

Sounds like it needs service. You can try resetting the camera to its factory default settings and see if that does anything. On the Setup Menu (wrench and hammer symbol), go to Clear settings, then Clear all camera settings, and select OK. This is covered on page 37 of the manual.

Dropped my camera


Take for repair - The cost will be about half the price of a new camera assuming that parts can be found. Get the new camera.
