Camera will not take a picture but previously taken pictures can be viewed


If the camera is showing a black or distorted screen when set to photo, and photos that are taken with the black screen also show up black or distorted, then this would likely be a CCD imager failure, a common occurrence for your model camera.
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 this link for more info.

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!

The camera turns on but the screen is black. Thought the screen might be faulty, so took a picture and the picture is black. The screen will show previous picture taken.

When shooting my screen is black and pics. are black


try to take video on Movie mode, if you won't get picture on LCD the CCD is dead. That means you need to replace the whole zoom lens. it costs a lot, not worth to repair.
