Sounds like you might have accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. It turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Turn on your camera, and press this button once again to turn the screen back on.

But if your camera is also taking black pictures,
a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

LCD SCREEN WILL NOT DISPLAY POWER SHOT A620


From my experience, there is a setting on your camera (to preserve battery) that makes the screen black. There is probably nothing wrong with your camera, you just need to find the DISPLAY button and push it until you see the image on your screen.

If you do not have a manual for your camera, you can download one here:

Hope this helps!

Canon A620 is taking black images/ Can't see images on screen


First try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. If that didn't fix it... A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter.

Hello the lcd screen on the back of my canon a620 is completely black and will not show what i am taking a picture of. any suggestions?


If the camera shows the menu, it can be two faults - dead CCD or stuck shutter. You should contact local Canon service center.

Lcd screen is black can't take new pictures


Hi Guys, My A620 is almost out of warranty :-{ and the lcd went blank. Could still take pictures and view them, just couldn't see them on the lcd screen. After looking through all of these trouble shooting pages, someone on another page suggested to reset settings, manual pg 28. Or on the camera switch on, Menu, go into tools scroll down till you reach rest all and ok. Doesn't clear pics already on there, and mine now works fine :-) phew. Good luck xx
