Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
It only happened today.
The camera was working fine and then all of a sudden, when about to take a photo, the lcd presented no image. I couldn't see a thing and when taking a photo, the result was simply a blank screen! Not using the lcd and instead taking a photo using the view-finder simply provided the same - a black screen.
Everything else seems fine. I can check previous photos (the image is fine), zoom works, all else is ok, menus etc.
Naturally this makes it impossible to take photos and I'm wondering whether any experts out there can suggest something that can bring my camera back to full functionality - my wife bought me the Canon A95 as a present a few years ago and it means a lot to me. I don't want to relegate it to the camera cemetary just yet.
Canon repairs this fault free of charge. Locate your near service centre from the Canon website and contact them. Good Luck

Hi, I am the individual (RDAVINCI) who posted this problem initially and thought that since others have experienced the same problem, it would be wise to provide an update.
I had hoped to find a resolution to the problem and sent my camera to Canon hoping that it was something that could be resolved easily. Unfortunately not and with the labour and parts, it was going to cost me in excess of £100 for a repair. It didn't seem financially prudent and I decided to leave my camera with them rather than pay for the return cost too with no benefit. So no happy ending, sorry folks.
I've now got a Sony H5 which is superb and so far so good.
Good luck to all of you who are experiencing the same problem and hope you manage to find that elusive remedy that may also be cost effective.
