Camera seems to function fine, but when I take a photo, in any form, the viewing screen powers up blank. The camera had been working fine, and no trauma occured to the device. When taking pictures, they come up as a black field, and download the same. What's up?
I have the same problem with my powershot s45 I was told to bring it to the canon service department in my area and the cost to fix it 165.00. so for me it's better to buy a new one than getting it fix.

Hi, I am the individual (RDAVINCI) who posted this problem initially and thought that since others have experienced the same problem, it would be wise to provide an update.
I had hoped to find a resolution to the problem and sent my camera to Canon hoping that it was something that could be resolved easily. Unfortunately not and with the labour and parts, it was going to cost me in excess of £100 for a repair. It didn't seem financially prudent and I decided to leave my camera with them rather than pay for the return cost too with no benefit. So no happy ending, sorry folks.
I've now got a Sony H5 which is superb and so far so good.
Good luck to all of you who are experiencing the same problem and hope you manage to find that elusive remedy that may also be cost effective.
I had the same problem ...I bought a new 2 GB SD card put it in the camera and it worked fine.
It may have had something to do with formatting ..I tried to format the other card wiyh my computer when the video camera would stay on.
I tried to reset the camera that didn't work either.
The new SD Card did work.
So you can see images that are on the card from previous taking but not new?
Just to confirm - this is an optical SLR?
With a mirror that flips up when you press the button - is that right?
If so it souns like to mirror is not going up.
Can you hear it go up?
I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.
