The sensor array has gone bad. It will bave to be sent back to Canon for service since that is a major repair. You should consider the A480 as a replacement camera. The A480 is a little over $100 and is going to be cheaper than repairing your A95, plus the A480 will have better resolution and picture quality. It will not use you adapter lenses, if you have any.

The A95 is still a very nice feature-rich camera, even by today's standards, and worth getting fixed if possible. Agreed that this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. But 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.

Applicable cameras include: A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110, IXUS V2/300/400/430/500, IXY Digital 30/30a/200a/300a/D320/400/ 450/500

POSSIBLY T-con pcb, but check the cables between the T-con & the panel & the cables between the t-con & main pcb.
Try unplugging & reconnecting those same cable links. When disconnected look at the condition of the cables & boards. your looking for signs of arcing or corrosion.

When taking a picture tscreen is black and half pict is black


As long as there are no markings on the camera showing that you may have abused it, the warranty will cover it. Try lightly flicking the lens (not the glass, but the sides) a few times and see if that clears it up.

I gave the lense part of the camara a moderate slap, and the camara has worked fine since. looks like a lot of people have the same problem. Most of the people call it black screen problem. the shutter gets stuck. Tap it a few times on the side of the lense part of the camara moving it from bright to dark objects back and forth.
good luck.

if the resulting images are the same, you have damaged the camera settings/controllers. see how they look on your computer.
if only the display on the camera is damaged, you should consider asking for a flat rate repair. most makers offer a price for major and minor repairs, and never charge beyond that.
good luck
