When the camera is on, no images are shown. why is that?

Dunno if this is old info to someone, but anyway id like to add the possible solution here too. To make it available to many who is searching it.

Put the camera in the Tv mode from the dial. (in Record Mode ofcourse) Select 15" from the omnibutton (pressing it left) Take a picture, count to 6 and release the batteries in the middle of everything. With mine this worked with the first time. It is reported that this might require several tries.

The iris is in some weird oil, and it gets stuck.

When you have image again take several pictures (maybe hundreds) to make the "iris" more free. I got this camera very cheap nowadays, alomost free. and it works fine now.

The camera takes pictures with flash, but then as you hit display the screen stays black and the picture was never taken. How can this get fixed?

Do you mean that no picture file was actually recorded, or do you really mean that the resulting picture file recorded a black picture?
If you mean that you're camera is taking black pictures, this sounds like a stuck shutter. A stuck shutter is a common failure mode for digital cameras, and it seems to be especially so for any of the Canon A6XX series (although these cameras are awesome otherwise). 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.
