Hi,

It sound like your CCD Sensor got died due to moisture enter into your camera or by dropping your device.

I would suggest that take your camera to canon authorized service centre.


Good Luck & have a nice day.

Hi,
This usually means that its a problem with the CCD itself. How long have you owned the camera? If it isn't under warranty then you will want to replace it with a new camera. Technology in digital camera's advances very quickly and prices come down all the time. You can get a comparable camera now for around 70$ new. If you have any questions please let me know and I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

    Ok,
    and what do the pictures look like when you download them? If they are black then it is the ccd imaging sensor. You can contact canon about repair but I would recommend just replacing the camera. Please take a moment to accept/rate my solution accordingly.
    Thank you,
    Lee

Hi,Have got got a canon(powershot a710 is) whenever i turn on the camera i get a few beep noises and the screen remain black with the message'lens error,restart the camera'....and it then turns off.....I...


The lens is jammed. Usually dust or grit gets in the mechanism and causes it to stick. Could try blowing down the side of the lens but it will probably need taking apart and cleaning. It is not an easy job to do but it might be worth trying as it would probably cost too much taking to a repair shop.

Hi, my canon powershot A710 IS says CARD LOCKED. how do I unlock it?


SD memory cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

Automatic shooting (for group pictures)


Hi - You can download the manual from the link underlined in blue below:

PowerShot A710

The feature you need is the "self timer" on page 14:

When you press the shutter you will have up to 30 seconds to get yourself in the picture before the camera automatically takes the picture. For best results put the camera on a tripod.

Please take a moment to rate this solution & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Canon Power Shot A710 is


The hand with parenthesis is your image stabilization. It sounds like if your images are turning out black, you may need service.

Try hitting your display button a few times and see if anything shows up on the screen.
