Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
Screen black unable to view pictures taken and unable to take pictures I had my camera since 2003 and was working fine, until recently just a black blurred screen.Looking at other websites,it seemed to a fault with this camera a70 and Canon was repairing them free of charge ? Not sure whether it would apply in the uk.
The camera has a recall issue, it's called a CCD sensor. Your problem is better known as the black screen of death. To date Canon is the only company that will repair this issue for free, Call Canon and they will send you a shipping label that you can print out on your computer and send them the camera and they will fix it and send it back free of charge. Canon has excellent customer support, I would never purchase any other brand of camera other than Canon because of the lack of other companies not standing behind product repair issues that are a result of poor design flaws on parts.
