    I have that same problem!!! My camera will flash like it's taking a picture, but I see nothing in the view finder, and when I download to computer ... there is nothing but black. My camera has never been dropped or ever gotten wet. It just seem to quit on me. Vacation is coming up and I have no camera! If someone knows what is needed to fix it, let me know. Thanks

My Canon PowerShot SD880 IS has a black display screen. I cannot take pics now with the black screen, but the display DOES work for pics taken before the screen went black. Please help!


I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem. I found one posting elsewhere that said that this was a "common" problem. That person's camera was under warranty. Mine isn't, but it's less than 2 years old.

I was taking a pictures and all of a sudden the screen went black and now all the pictures i take come out black


The mirror inside your camera lenses appear damaged or displaced which is responsible for properly reflecting light (otherwise comes out black or too exposed). Send it back for repair.

Black screen; lens won't shut; totally not working now


Sound like the sensor or recoding electronics are bad. The camera is most likely beyond economical repair and I would buy a new one.

Then it sounds like there may be an error with your CCD (what comverts the light going into your camera into a digital picture, like digital film). even if your warranty is expired canon may still repair this for free. Contact canon at 1-800-OK-CANON and explain to them the problem and that you think the CCD may be defective.

Lens problems


Try opening your camera, check the lens gear if its teeth are complete. If so, check if something stucks on it. Its much better to bring your camera to an authorized service center to re timing your lens track... ^_^

Unuseable Camera


The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:
