Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
I am sorry to hear this Problem.Play the Saved images / Videos. If you still see the Black Image, then LCD panel is Bad. If you could see the Saved images / Videos, then this is Faulty CCD Sensor.
In both the Cases, it is advisable to Purchase a new Camera than Repairing this as Repair would cost more than $100.
You could Google the Information for CCD sensor and you would be Surprised to know that there is a Recall regarding Most of the Models for a Certain Duration if they have CCD Sensor Malfunction. Contact Canon, if they could get this Repaired as Most of the Models are always Under Recall.
In Case of Bad LCD Panel, there is nothing you could Do.Repair would not be a Wise Option.
Let me know, if needed assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.
