Question about Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help solve my A95 problem please? I have had it for about 4 years with no issues at all. Last week the screen appeared black when I turned it on. I can depress the shutter button and it clicks and flashes as if it has taken a photo, however nothing but a 'black photo' appears on the memory card!
Odd thing is that I can still view old pictures from the memory card on the LCD display.
Is there anyone out there that may have an idea what the problem might be please and is it likely to be expensive to fix?
I had the same problem: Canon (via a external repair workshop in Denmark) exchanged the defective CCD chip in the A95 camera without charge although the guarantee has expired years ago.

I had this happen to me this morning and when I hit the DISP. button, the screen worked again. Apparently, you can toggle through 3 different screen modes with this button.

There are quite a few of us with symilar problem, but the screen is not completely black: it has some purple or pinkish color when facing light. Old pics and menu can still be viewed. I noticed 4 symilar threads on Canon A95 within the last 5 mins without any search, just looking at the top questions.
