Hi,

The camera was still under warranty and so we sent it back to Canon - they fixed it, said that the strobe was not working properly and so replaced the flash assembly. God Luck!

Sounds like you might have a lens error developing. Look for error messages on the screen. A clue is abnormal performance by the lens in tracking and zooming in and out.

In the camera menu, there should be a setting for "review" to allow you to set the number of seconds the picture remains on the screen. Also, you can always review the pictures you've taken by pressing the review button on the camera...it's usually a button with an arrow that points to the right.

My view screen has suddenly stopped working although the other functions show on the screen


You may have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. Try pressing it again to see if this corrects the problem. If it doesn't, take a picture and download it to your camera. Is the picture black like the screen? If so, you then likely have a stuck shutter. In that case, see this article for a quick fix that you can do.

Blank screen


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP (Display) button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save battery power. You could then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn it back on, just the DISP button one more time.
