I have a canon powershot A70, and by the looks of the other answers on this forum, I have a bad ccd, but that is not the main problem. I had an empty cf card and took eight pictures of random things and all of the pictures are just black. The largest picture file takes up 196 KB and the rest are even smaller. What is wrong with this camera and how can I fix it?

Hi there: An CCD problem would explain the
black or lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used
to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used
in digital cameras. Some
symptoms of a defective CCD
include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines,
blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being
recorded on the camera's flash card. When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light
coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of
tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The
number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated
charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step
occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an
In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your
feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if
