Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera
My camera turns on, lens extends and opens, camera flashes and takes pictures, but all that comes out is a black picture. Screen display shows nothing wrong, it gives all the normal options, but only black appears on the screen- it does not pick up the object it's pointing to, nor takes a picture of it. Just black.
I tried every setting, and every option, yet the lens doesn't seem to be connected to the rest of the camera somehow.
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.
