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.

Make sure that you read the reader's comments there for other techniques that may work if the outlined steps in the article don't. Also, please leave a comment there on how the fixes worked, or may not have worked for you.

The last time I used my PowerShot S3 IS it worked just fine. I went to get it this time, and I could only preview saved photos. When I turned it to take a picture, their was only a black screen? Other than...


The connection from ccd to camera has failed, probably due to dry joint, Canon dont own up to this, so it s shell out about £140 for a repair or chuck it in the bin!!!

Black screen; lens won't shut; totally not working now


Sound like the sensor or recoding electronics are bad. The camera is most likely beyond economical repair and I would buy a new one.

LCD Screen remains black


Hi!
Have you tried pushing the DISP button while taking pictures? It's on the right from the LCD.

Cannon Powershot A-620 black screen can't review


Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder to take pictures. To turn the screen back on, just press this button one more time.

I had my camera for a couple of years and the lcd screen went black, i can't take new pictures anymore.


If the screen goes black, you can still take pictures. There is no way to fix the black screen, it just blew out.

Black screen, put in new battery no change!???


For both of your cameras, this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
