    Try first pulling battery out and putting it back in, if the reset does not work try the following.

    Ensure that you cannot take photos in any way, if you can take
    pictures, and download them in your pc, then is the lcd connector or the display, that is not an
    expensive fix.


    in some case jammed lens shutter can give this problem, when is like this you can fix the problem playing gently with the lens. Here is a thread from fixya giving solutions for this problem, hava a look.

    If it is not that can be a defective board or the sensor, if it was just the lcd you would have been able to take pictures

    Check also your guaranty.

    Regards

Cannon Powershot A-620 black screen can't review


Did you accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera? This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder to take pictures. To turn the screen back on, just press this button one more time.

Black screen while shooting, but still taking pictures not black


Nonononooooo fotomohamed, he can review just taken pictures on the LCD. The screen is working.

Actually, it sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save batteries (you would then use optical viewfinder). Just press it once and it should turn back on.

Try and clean the LCD connector _flexible connectors. If you are able to see the dark picture- The back light panel is defective or improper contact. If the picture is perfect in the PC when you download,,then the LCD may be defective For LCD pl.e mail me...may be we can give a new one.
