Re: screen

Sounds like a CCD failure. If this camera is still under 1 year warranty, contact Canon and have them repair it.

Canon A630 screen black

Turns out my husband must have pressed a button by accident. The bottom left button says "disp" for display. Pressing that fixed the screen!

Not taking pictures, screen is black

I had the same thing happen and by searching around for a solution today I came across is easy fix - give the camera a little "whack". It worked like a charm for me and several other people with the same issue. The issue was on this site but I can't find the exact one to link it. I hope it works for the rest of you - other people have paid the $100 to get it fixed, try this first!
If that doesn't work contact canon and see if they will honor your problem according to this advisory:

Screen appears faulty

With switched on try pressing the camera casing around the edges of the screen. This may be a loose connector and squeezing the camera casing may rectify it - then may perhaps it will not. Try the menu button If it comes up look for the Reset function. Carefully look in the manual in case there is an error correction method. Failing all that Get onto the Samsung web site Technical Help.
