Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
I am having the same problem I have already sent it off once to be fixed by canon and they fix it once for free so I can't send it off again. There used to be this little thing I could do that I found online about switching between modes taking out the batteries and doing some other things but it's not working this time. I have pushed the display button and that is not working either. The weird thing is that I can see the screen in the panoramic mode but not in any other mode.
Have you tried taking pictures when the screen is black? Do the pictures also come out black? If so, try putting it in any mode other than auto and turning off the flash (don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the front of the lens and take a picture. You should see a little flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If you see this flicker, and you're still getting black pictures, then you likely have again encountered failure of the CCD. Canon will fix this again for you for free. See the following:
But if no flicker or movement is seen down the center of the lens when you took the picture, then you likely have a stuck shutter. Canon will not fix this for free. But no matter, there are a couple simple fixes for this that don't require opening the camera: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html
