Re: Will not download pix

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My canon powershot sx110 is is only taking black pictures. any suggestions on how to fix this?

Have you downloaded pictures to your computer to see if the pictures are ok, and it's just the display? If not, worth testing. If pix are ok, then it's just the display that's bad. If the pix are bad, get new camera.
