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.

    OK, guess that wasn't the problem. Could you provide a little more detail on your problem? Some questions that may help analyze the problem:


    Are the pictures taken by the camera also black when downloaded to your computer?


    Did you see any movement of the shutter when you looked down the lens and took the picture for the stuck shutter fix?


    Have you tried pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera to see if the screen was accidentally turned off?

When turned on screen is black but you can view menu and stored pictures


Since you can see the menus, did you try to go to the setup menu, and adjust the brightness of the screen?
It is in the setup menu, the line under Sound settings. Try to make the display brighter and don't forget to ok that one, because otherwise nothing will be changed. OK with the ok / Func button.

Try hitting the display button(the small TV resembling icon in the bottom right of the camera). You may have accidentally pressed it while using your camera and caused it to turn off your display.

Screen problem??


This sounds like a cracked screen.. a leaf you say? is the leaf a graphic, perhaps an icon.. is it centered on the screen at all?

hmm....
I would take it to a certified repair center to see if they can replace the LCD panel.
Sounds like it needs to be replaced.

Canon A620 No Picture


First try hitting the DISP button (sorry if this offends, but many people have made this mistake). If this doesn't help, next try resetting the camera. Turn on the camera, and hold the menu button for at least five seconds. Believe reset is also in the menus.

If the above doesn't help, then unfortunately this sounds like your CCD image sensor may have failed. This would then require professional repair. Contact Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON.
