I am having problems with my canon A460. When I put the camera in shooting mode and try and take a photo the screen is black. If I take the picture it then shows me the picture that I have just taken but then goes completely black again. There is no problem with viewing previously taken photos but it wont show me what I am taking photos of.

the image in the LCD monitor will darken in strong sunlight or bright light. This is normal occurrrence in device CCDs and does not contitute a malfunction. This image will not be recoded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded wihen shooting movies.Read you owner manual and adjust the MENU, according with your o. manual.Otherwise you must go the repair shop God bless you
There are different settings. You can view the past photos because you are using the viewer for that, but you have a setting off in the menu. You need to turn on view photo or preview photo after picture taken.
I am not sure what it is in the Canon line, but look in your manual for the setting.
Which mode are you shooting in? You may have adjusted the exposure compensation so everything is washed out.
Whatever the cause, your images are overexposed. Try shooting in auto and the camera should take over the settings, but if you are in other modes, check your shutter speed, aperture, & ISO also. These are all things that can cause too much light and wash the picture out/OVEREXPOSE.
If you have any other questions or can give me more details, just ask!
Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
