Question about Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera
Just this morning I took many pictures from my Canon IXUS 70, it was fine until suddenly blank images appears when I tried to shoot objects. It was definitely not because I pressed "DISP" button, because it's different. If you press "DISP" button, you will see that the LCD is completely off. In my case, it is not off, I still can see and choose the shooting mode, but the objects I wanted to capture did not appear. If I just try to shoot it, it was successful, a flash light would be fired. But when tried to display it, actually it was only the blank images. It seems that the shutter did not open.
I don't think I have a problem on my LCD, since I still can see existing images I captured before this problem occurs.
Can anyone give me ideas of what is going on?
My Canon IS850 wouldn't auto-focus. The yellow light would blink (like if you're too close to something). I snapped the pictures anyway. They were garbage. Then after a day and swapping memory cards, the camera started auto-focussing properly. It made no sense.
Called Canon on my return, they fixed the camera under warranty by "replacing the optical unit". Sounds like CAnon is having problems

This really sounds like a potential CCD failure. To confirm, take a picture while the screen is black, then download to your computer to see if the picture is also black.
If so, it is difficult for the average person to replace a CCD, and should only be done by an authorized Canon repair rep. If still under warranty, Canon will fix this for you for free. If not, recommend calling Canon anyways and complaining (this should not happen in such a recent model camera). If you complain, and possibly ask to speak to a supervisor, you just might get lucky.
Here's the number:
