CAnnon Powershot A630 LCD screen will not light up when trying to take a pic. I can, however view old pics that I've already taken.


First press the DISP or DISPLAY button to see if that corrects the problem. If not, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Canon eos rebel xsi has black screen while taking pics.It shows the pic afterwards and shows the menu so the screen works but shows black screen while taking a pic


I think it is because the camera has a sensor. The screen turns off so as not to distract you or let light from the screen bother you while taking a shot. You can check this in the manual.

My camera just shows a black screen and the orange light flashes


nothing unfortunately...
unless you have a thourough knowledge of digital cameras and the equipment i dont recommend attempting some DIY work...
if its still in warranty send it to the manufacturers and hope they will take it and fix it!
the other option is to take it to a professional who specialises in digital cameras, do not leave it with them without making sure you trust them though.

Good Luck

Canon sd450 - spilled a little lemonade on the camera


maybe the lemonade was sticky and the shutter can't open? otherwise the circuitry could have been fried if you turned it on before it dried inside.
