Question about Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Digital Camera
Try pressing the DISP 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 in its place to save batteries.
That normally fixes the problem of a black screen, but if it didn't, 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.

Mine sat for a year, I'd talk to it and kept it hoping one day it would return to me, which it did! But not until my new camera stopped working.This is a great camera, but the photos that are taken in a fairly lit room comes out dark in all pictures.
My cousin and father in law went and got the same camera cause they thought it was of great quality, but like I have mentioned, pictures taken from a distance does not light up as much...even with the flash. Flash not so great if taking picture that are just a distance away (10-15 feet only).
