Well this could be one of a few issues. First, did you press the display button (disp.)? This will sometimes turn the LCD on and off in some models and not just remove icons on the screen. If that doesn't work, I would think you have a bad CCD. This is what captures an image and turns it into a digital signal. If this is bad, it will either show purple tint on the screen, lines or once in a worse state, all black like you're experiencing now.

Lastly I would think it could be a stuck aperture on your lens. I would email the guys at this place, hopefully they can help you out!! I wish you luck.

When i take a picture, my picture comes out black the camera turns on fine, batteries are charged and everything. but the screen is black. it acts as if it was going to take a picture but the screen does...


Your camera may be manifesting shutter not opening problem. It needs to get to a camera service/repair shop.

However, it's good you physically check whether the lens isn't blocked or covered with anything

Screen is black


Eagle 23: Press the "Disp" button and your LCD screen will turn on right away.

nazmil_mj: Can you take pictures or are they totally black as well? If you can only take black pictures then your LCD screen is fine and your CCD is bad or your aperture is stuck. Either of these means you need your lens replaced.

Don't bother asking a store for help (though you can if you like) they will tell you it's not fixable or will just send it to Canon and charge you $175 for the repair.

We are an affordable digital camera repair business, we can replace your lens for about $75!

Problem with lens


It is possible you have the display turned off... Some cameras allow you to do this to save battery.
