    My Canon PowerShot A75 that I have had for four years (and love dearly), will turn on, but the screen is black. I can view the menu and all of the options, and also view the pictures that I've already taken. It will take a picture, but of course, it is just black screen. Help!

    My Canon PowerShot A70 that I have just over two years, will turn on, but the screen is black. I can view the menu and all of the options, and also view the pictures that I've already taken. It will take a picture, but of course, it is just black screen. I have changed batteries, card etc still no go. Go to the camera shop and they say not worth fixing. Come on cost me over 3oo bucks.

    I do not have a picture display. I can see all other menu functions as normal. When I take pictures using the view finder and then download them to my computer they appear to have properties but the image is black.

Call Canon at 1-800-828-4040. Explain the issue you are facing with the display. They will send envelop to send them your camera to get it fixed free of cost.

You can call up Canon, because they know that this is a problem. They will send you a shipping label and fix the camera for free, regardless of your warranty status. Apparently it has to do with some faulty wiring. That's what I'm doing right now, and I'm dropping it off at UPS today.
