Question about Canon PowerShot A620 Digital Camera
One of three possible problems. First check that you didn't accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button. If that's not the problem...
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 this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
Finally, it could be a loose or poor connection of the screen's flex cables, a very common problem for your model camera. The A620's vari-angle screen is a great option for a camera, but with this moveable screen, the screens data and power cables can and do wiggle loose. It is actually relatively easy to fix by just reseating these cables, but will require opening the back face of the screen of your camera.Please see this other person who had a similar problem with an A630.
