Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
My canon PowerShot S3 IS will power up, display shooting information but will not show a picture on the external display or through the viewfinder. Also when I take a picture it displays a black image on the memory card.
I have this problem too, normally when the camera has had no batteries in it for a long time. Listen for a very faint clicking noise, I suspect it's a capacitor charging. When the clicking stops, the camera works fine. Just leave the batteries in for a couple of minutes and try again. It might still be broken, but this works for me.

Call Canon for free tech support and I'd advise sending it in for free estimate. If your camera is more than a year old, you will qualify for the upgrade program which is often cheaper than repairing it.
Hope this helps!
