The hand with parenthesis is your image stabilization. It sounds like if your images are turning out black, you may need service.

Try hitting your display button a few times and see if anything shows up on the screen.

Hi,Have got got a canon(powershot a710 is) whenever i turn on the camera i get a few beep noises and the screen remain black with the message'lens error,restart the camera'....and it then turns off.....I...


The lens is jammed. Usually dust or grit gets in the mechanism and causes it to stick. Could try blowing down the side of the lens but it will probably need taking apart and cleaning. It is not an easy job to do but it might be worth trying as it would probably cost too much taking to a repair shop.

Camera Canon A710 IS started to ask set time date when turned on


When the camera is left without power for an extended period of time, the time and date settings are gone. You need to reset them and when you're finished, click the set/ok button twice.

My canon A710 says it needs batteries no matter


My A710 did exactly the same thing. Spoke to Canon support. According to them you have to use Canon 2500 mah batteries (quite expensive - need a different charger as well). I've just bought new rechargable batteries from Sanyo (Eneloop pre-charged). And it solved my problem. I've also changed the batteries quite a few times and it never worked. But this did solve the problem for me.

The "stuff" you see on your screen is some of the icons that Canon uses and is perfectly normal--the problem is that nothing from the outside world is getting to the screen, so it's black. Could be a broken CCD (not good--see www.usa.canon.com about fixing it) but let's try some easy stuff first, like pressing the DISP. button below your viewfinder once or twice. Also, eliminate the obvious: when you turn on the camera, does the lens pop out? Does the black metal lens cover open up so you can see the lens? Try removing and replacing the batteries. Also, if you feel adventurous, reset the camera to its defaults--i.e., wipe out any changes you may have made by accident--by removing/replacing the CR1220 date battery under the rubber cover at the side of the camera (you'll have to reset the time and date after you reinstall it). Good luck!
