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:

Canon Powershot A70. I get a 'Memory Card Error' when I turn it on. Did this three different cards. They don no appear to be defective. I just transferred all of the pictures form them to another hard...


When you transferred the pics from the cards to your computer, did you use the "safely remove hardware" function before removing the cards or cord or whatever method you used? If not, this is why you're getting the error message. If the pics are safely downloaded, format the cards in the camera to get them working again.

I can look at old pics, but pic taking screen is blank. The display still comes up though.

Internal memory


Sorry, most Canon cameras do not have internal flash memory (maybe the newer models? But the A70 definitely does not). Those other model cameras that do have internal memory only have a few megabytes. And this memory is primarily intended only to take a couple pics to verify that the camera is working properly.

Canon Powershot A70 Digital


When I got my A70 I got a CD with the software. If I connect the camera with USB cable to the computer, set the little lever on the back for the camera to display whatever pictures are in it, and turn the camera on, the computer recognizes the camera, opens the software and leads me through the process.
If you have some other photo software than the Canon software, it should still work.

if you can disassembly the camera and put it back again why not...but the problem is the ccd image sensor if you can buy it in the canon service center...that sensor is located at the center of the lens with a glass,square shape and have many pins..
