So???
Is the shutter opening? Put it on slow shutter speed and wide aperture say 1 sec at f4 or wider and look down the lens as you take photo. At some point you should see the sensor as the aperture is nearly fully open. If not then it isn't allowing light to get to the sensor, but if that's all working ok (and I assume you've looked at the photos on a computer and checked they are on the card and the exif info is sensible and they are still completely black) then you have a faulty sensor or processor. Remove battery reinsert and go into menu and reset the camera settings. Report back so???

    I tried all of the above, and still nothing. When I go into live view image on the LCD screen looks clear, but when I take a pictures it's still all black. And video recording works fine.

The camera is telling you that the internal memory is full. To get your card to work, you must clear it. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work unless you formatted it in the computer, in which case you'll have to format (completely erases it) it in the camera.

Take no more pics until you've recovered your photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones. Now after you've recovered your photos, consider formatting the card in the camera to prevent this from happening again.

Well, your first problem is that the phone is not completly waterproof. (as in taking it for a swim) Many consumers have complained about this phone not actually being waterproof. I would get myself to the wireless store and complain pronto!!!!

hi

i know its sounds odd but yes the charge on the batteries (Voltage/Amps) is falling short for the camera to start as it takes more power to run the camera than to just preview your pictures

one suggestion i can give here is
(this could be potentially hezardous so tread caution)
if you have rechargale batts then try electro jump to them take any source which is roughly 2-3times the voltage of the batteries (eg: if the batt voltage is 1.25 volts take a 3-5volts source) and connect the +ve wire to the +ve and -ve wire to the -ve of the battery and hold for 10 to 15 secs and then immediatly place it for charging and let them fill charge and use them till the batteries are completely drained
repeat this cycle for 2 -3 times and batteries will come back to life

be careful to connect the wires correctly else they might destroy the batts also not to hold for more than 10-15 secs

cheers
pls rate if this was any help

Not taking pictures, screen is black


I had the same thing happen and by searching around for a solution today I came across is easy fix - give the camera a little "whack". It worked like a charm for me and several other people with the same issue. The issue was on this site but I can't find the exact one to link it. I hope it works for the rest of you - other people have paid the $100 to get it fixed, try this first!
If that doesn't work contact canon and see if they will honor your problem according to this advisory: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=10468&keycode=2112&id=48264
