Sounds like you accidentally hit the DISP Display button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off (you can then use the optical viewfinder to save battery power). To turn it back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

Camera turns on, lens goes out, but it is black, see nothing through it or on lcd screen (yes, cover is off). There is no error messages, still takes pictures but just black. Can view previous pictures on...


It coud be a very common IRIS/Shutter stuck problem...this has been reported on lot of S3 IS & S2 IS cameras... just search for this on web and you'll find a temporary solution also (related to taking battery out in the middle of taking picture during a long exposure (15" in Tv mode), but for more permanent fix you need take it back to Canon service center

CAMERA TURNS OFF WHEN IN PICTURE OR VIDEO MODE


Does the camera turn off or does the screen go black? if the screen goes black but the power lamp stays green then the screen is just turned off (power save mode), If it’s just the screen to turn on the LCD. There are 3 buttons just to the right of the screen, press the center button.

Black screen


This is a system failure Tell Fuji Support about it but I fear any repair offer will be nearly the price of a new camera- unless of course it is still under warranty
