I can not see image on screen


If you can see the picture before you take it, then the taken picture is black - Camera needs repair at a service shop - aligment.
If you cannot see the picture before you try and take it - The lens shutter is jammed. A repair shop is required. Could be $80 -$200+ depending on parts costs and labour.
These are only probable answers.

Black screen


First ensure that this is not a setting problem, by removing batteries to reset camera. try also using the Reset command in the camera menu , after removing batteries.

if you can see old pictures, but new ones come out black, that means that for some reason, no light is coming to the array sensor (the sensor that scans and take the picture), or the signal is not arriving to main board, or the board is faulty.

Check first that the shutter is opening properly, that lens is extending, and that there is no dirt on top of the objective lens.

If that is not a problem, then there is either a defective array sensor, a losen array sensor cable/connector, or the main pcb inside the camera has a fault.
In all cases the camera must be taken apart, inspected, and fixed by a technician.

Camera will take picture, but the picture is coming out black!!!! Help Please!!!


Dear vera11:

The symptoms you're describing sound like a classic case of having a faiiled CCD image sensor.

First try pressing the display (DISP) button on the back of your camera several times to see if your image returns at any time. One of the three display modes is "off" to preserve battery life. Your problem may be as simple as inadvertently pressing this button into the off mode.

If that doesn't work, try doing a reset and then removing your batteries from the camera for a few minutes, reinstalling them and turning the camera on to test the LCD screen.

If your screen is still black, but you can clearly see pictures taken previous to the problem, and you can clearly see the menu system when you press the MENU button, then you likely have a CCD sensor problem. Contact Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 to have the camera repaired.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Outside shutter cover will not open


The only thing I can recommend is to manually push the cover open. But, it will probably stay that way, and not close.
