    The LCD screen works & I can view previously taken pictures. The screen went black - not completely black - it's like really dark "snow" - while I was taking pictures. New pictures come out completely black. It's like the CCD isn't working all of a sudden. I saw this exact same problem listed for a 3100 with info saying there was a known problem. I think this is the SAME problem. Will Nikon fix it for free as they will with the 3100???

    I have same problem. Cnet forums has a ton of users with this problem and their suggestion is to call Canon and don't give up until you get 100% free repair. Many Canon cameras have had CCD sensor problems but the A610 is not listed as part of it. I called for first time today and got a supervisor who kept repeating it's not the same problem as other cameras. Calling back tomorrow. I will not let go until get free repair for a problem that many others are having. Go ahead and Google A610 CCD sesnor problem to find the cnet forum. There is also a great post on Amazon.

Pictures are black

If you can display pictures in playback mode but screen is black in capture mode then the CCD sensor has stopped working and needs replacing.

Black pictures with blue lines running horrizontally through them

If you are able to see the picture in the LCD in black color and if there are no damages to the LCD -the LCD is fine. There is a back light panel attached behind the LCD which may be defective.Check for the loose connections. If you need spare parts contact me.
