I have the same problem as this person: I have a Canon Digital IXUS 500 with the same problem: when turned on previous pictures can be viewed menu and fuctions available , unable to take and view pictures...


Hi!
There could be two causes - a dead CCD or a broken shutter cable inside the lens (so the camera is not able to open the shutter) - they both are common problems with the camera and are expensive to repair. I don't think it's worth it.

Sorry for the bad news!

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder,...


I had a A70 that would still take pictures, but the screen did not show a picture. I did some research and found that this is somewhat a common problems with some of the Canon Powershots to include the A70 where the LCD screens expire. I believe that if the camera gets too hot, such as being left in a vehicle the LCD seperates. I sent my camera to Canon and they fixed it for free. It took about 4-6 weeks to receive my camera back, and now it works perfectly. They did a great job on communicating with me, and fixing the issue. I think that alone is worth buying a Canon. The link below should help you.
