Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
My SD 600 powershot is 10 years old and I have used it extensively. Recently it is not functioning well. It has stopped capturing images. It starts recording despite the mode. It records in all three modes whether it is display mode or picture mode or recording mode. When I connect it to laptop then also it does not show display mode hence laptop is not able to read it. Please help.
After years of use these wear out just like anything else, if the camera is 10 years old it is going to cost you more to have it repaired than it will cost to replace it. 10 years is a long time, and the price for repairs will be sky high.

What the problem looks like The problem can take any of several forms, but all involve severe color shifts and/or severe distortions of the image. The images below show two examples (courtesy of Konica Minolta) of what the problem might look like, if your camera falls prey to it. In the early stages of the problem, the camera may still capture recognizable images, but with a washed-out appearance and a strong magenta or green tint. What products may be affected? Quite a number of products may develop this problem, including digital cameras, camcorders, and even PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) that incorporate an image sensor.

After some inspecting of the camera it seen the issue lies with the lens, not the camera itself so don't go banging the camera up or you might damage some other part and the camera will be broken for real. Inside the lens is a closer which block the internal system from capturing image. The closer look just like the one you see before turning on your camera but it's smaller and it's inside the lens way in the far back. Look carefully and you'll see it - you will see the closer if your screen is black while in capture mode otherwise you will see a nice round glass (the internal lens for capturing image/video).
Think of if like this, imagine an eyeball with its eyelid close. That's what happened when the screen is black while in capturing mode.
HOW TO FIX IT: In order to fix the black screen while in capture mode and cost as little damage to your camera as possible, simply turn on the camera in either picture or video mode and look inside your lens, there should be a closer in the far back end. Gently hit the lens a few times until you don't see the closer no more and only a round glass and your camera should begins capturing image and video again.
Good luck to you all. And remember don't use anger to force your camera to works or you will regret it.

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.
