The camera powers on fine, although it has a black screen with no image. What type problem is this and is it fixable or not. When I go to look at the pictures I took while the display screen was blacked out the screen remains with no image. blacked out screen apart from icons and text, blacked out photos, but camera powers up and knows if the lens cap is left on.

    Yes, images recorded previously can be viewed as normal, but no new images can be taken or viewed. Dead CCD?

    Everything is the same. I would only add that this problem occurs in CSM, AUTO and SCENE modes.

Lens stuck

Yes it is fixable. if there is a friction in the movement of the lense cover blades this happens. If it is due to fine sand or dust try using a soft brush with a rubber pump fitted at the back so that it cen blow the sand off the camera. The problem is not that big for going for a new camera.
