Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Taking black pictures

When I go to take a picture it is black. I took some pictures a few weeks ago, i can still view those on my LCD screen. I tried taking a picture even though it shows it as black and reviewing it...still black. Download it on my computer still black. I banged on it a little bit to see if it was sensor thing similar to some of the other posts and that did nothing. So i can review pictures i took a few weeks ago, but cant take new ones. What do i do?

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

By the way, stop banging on it. That's a last resort fix for a lens error :-)

Kodak Z650 LCD is black


Check to see if there is a battery save mode for the viewfinder. Check the instruction manual for this.

It is also possible that the drive circuit for the LCD display has a fault. It was simply coincidential that it went bad while you were transfering pictures.

Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.

Pictures are black


My 4300 works fine until this week. No picture display on the LCD screen. Settings like date, exposure, etc.. are fine on the LCD screen. Able to get into setup mode and the colour menu selection box is fine. This shows that the LCD screen is working fine. Prior to this happening, I notice that when I took pictures in zoom mode, the picture turn out to be orange. I suspect this is caused by electronic failure. Light entering the lens cannot be transmitted to the LCD screen. Some photoelectronic stuff had reached its MTBF (mean time between failure)? Is there a way to save this camera?

Viewing is fine, taking pictures is not


This sounds like what started happening with my camera a few weeks ago. I found that turning the LCD screen off during picture-taking allows me to take pictures. I then have to go into review mode to look at the pictures I took using the LCD screen. Definitely not a great fix. I'm trying to locate a firmware upgrade that may solve it.
