    When I open the lense cover of my Powershot A310 the camera comes on, but the picture display show up black with white lines and blurred patches on the display. I don't have any idea of why it might be doing this. Has anyone had similiar problems. This just started happening about a week now.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. 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 the following two links for more info:

I deleted all pics from A540 but ended up with "no image" message on black screen. The shutter won't open either. It appears to be stuck in viewing mode.


hi,

first: be sure the battery is full charge.

second: by a compressor try to blow around the shatter and lens .

third : 3 or 4 times try to inflict a blow on the lens by your palm .

at the end see the result


good luck

It looks like i took a picture of shattered glass


Sounds like the LCD is faulty. But in order to avoid a repair.
Please try to upload new firmware:
If this doesn't work I'm afraid it'll be a repair.

Connect the camera with the computer.
Turn the camera on.
Click onto the link and follow the instructions.

Cannon SD 750 - when i try to take a picture a black screen appe


Think that you accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

LCD screen is black-cannot take photos


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2009/05/simple-fix-for-stuck-shutter.html

My camera d580


First, make sure the batteries are fresh and installed correctly. Turn on the camera, if you get an opening screen, your camera should be OK. Press the menu button and navigate to screen options where you should be able to turn on the screen to take pictures.

If there is no opening screen when you turn on the camera (and you are sure the batteries are good and in properly), then try to take some pictures without the screen. If the camera takes good pictures, then the screen is dead. You can continu to take pictures with it in this condition. I do not think they are worth fixing, though.

If the camera does not take good pictures or no pictures then the camera has failed or dead. Your best solution is to replace the camera with a newer, better one, More pixels, greater optical zoom, quicker start time and so on.
