    I have the same Canon IS S2 powershot- and the same problem. Had it after almost 2 years. I heard some solution to take a picture with long exposure (such as night shot) and then pull off the batteries (to reset the CCD). Does anyone else heard about it? my e-mail is klilhahoresh@bezeqint.net

Piece of junk that took great pictures for 1 year and now shows a black screen. Do not buy any Canon products. We also have one of these pieces of junk at work, now displays a E 18 code. Appears Canon wants to make mucho dollars by producing ****.

On back of camera, under viewing screen, there is a little button marked "DISP" (display). When my viewing screens (on both my A75 & A85) went black, it turned out it was because the DISP button had been inadvertantly pressed. Pressing it again re-opened the viewing screens. Magic!

Sounds like you might be in luck. These symptoms sound very much 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:

SOURCE: screen is black when turned on. view side works

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, sometimes with lines, 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.

How to correct black screen?


There is a setting on digital SLR cameras that allows you to just use the eye piece to photograph (as in the old pre-digital days) or to use the screen as the view finder. Cameras are all different but you will find how to do this in the manual. If you don't have a manual, do a google search.

Canon A620 No Picture


First try hitting the DISP button (sorry if this offends, but many people have made this mistake). If this doesn't help, next try resetting the camera. Turn on the camera, and hold the menu button for at least five seconds. Believe reset is also in the menus.

If the above doesn't help, then unfortunately this sounds like your CCD image sensor may have failed. This would then require professional repair. Contact Canon at 1-800-OK-CANON.
