Question about Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera
My camera only turns on to view photos but not to take new ones and the solution to a similar question does not solve my problem, I have the added problem that the screen is almost black. I can hear the camera switch on, and see the light flicker but can only see some text when the camera is tilted and viewed at an angle. Replacing the batteries did not solve the problem either. It used to work fine till the batteries died a few days ago, but after recharging and reinstalling them, I started having this problem.
Ps.The batteries have a rating of 3800mAh, 1.2V, and are fully charged and are brand new.
Ensure that settings are OK, and check if the curtain is opening.
If everything else is OK, then all black picture means that lens assembly, wiring to CCD sensor, or main digital board is faulty. More likely one of the first two.
The fault must be fixed at a repair shop.
