Question about Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
My camera powers up and the screen shows which mode its in, it displays the menu, and it will playback the memory card...but it wont do anything else. I cant see the image that i am tryin to take a pic of. I used the peephole to snap some pics but the the saved pic on the memory card was just of a plain black screen. Is this a lcd problem or is there something wrong with my shutter or something entirely different?
I have the same problem and very frustrating! The camera turns on by won't show anything (totally black) in the camera mode. The menu still works. If I take a picture the display is black and shows black for it in the display mode model as well. Tried everything that I can think of but nothing helped. (Taking out the batteries and reinstalling, switching the mode from display to camera and back, stepping through each mode option, stepping through each menu options). The last option worked once but won't work later on. From this forum this seems to be a common problem with this camera. Guess won't buy another camera from Canon any more. I bought a camera (non-digitals SLR) from Canon before and was very happy with it for over 20 years. Thought Canon had the right thing in camera. This problem made me think twice when I buy another camera in the future. Perhap Canon is not as good as I thought. By not fixing the known problem, they are ruining their reputation.

Have the same problem with my A610 and have been told by a local service center (in western Australia) that its not the CCD but the shutter, apparently the A610 did not have the CCD that has a problem and that the shutter problem displays the same symptoms.
not sure who to believe at the moment, might have to have a look at the camera myself first.

Users over at C|Net are suggesting that the CCD used in these cameras were the same ones Canon purchased from Sony which were prone to failure in a few models. The A610 was not listed as one but the symptoms were very much the same. The only solution is to repair the CCD or to purchase a new camera.
