Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
First try pressing the DISP or DISPLAY button. If that didn't work, have you tried downloading the photos, and are they also black? If so, 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. Finally if the photos are fine, and it's just that the screen is black, then it's likely just a loose ribbon cable connector to the screen. In that case, you would need to opne up the camera to reseat the cable.
