    When I turn my camera on to take a picture, the lens will open, but the screen is black. And even if i take a picture anyway, then go to view it, it is still black. But i can still view pictures taken from the past. how can i fix this?

    I have the same problem with my PowerShot A640, and tried cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser. Still no luck. When I press the shutter button, it sounds as though some lens hardware is trying to move. Is there anything I can do without taking it to a repair shop?

    When I turn Powershot S500 on with lens open, no image is previewed in LCD display (just recharged battery when this happened, have taken battery out and replaced several times) - I can however view images once taken. So display works obviously, just not the image preview anymore.

    I am having the exact same problem. What is the problem? What is the expense? Thx.

    I have the same problem with Panasonic Lumix LZ2. There is no connection with low batteries. Probably your camera has got hitted somehow and now the iris inside the lens doesn't open.
    My question is: is this iris changeable without changing lens? how does this thing look like?

I assume you tryed replacing batteries and all. do you tend to leave the batteries inside the camera for long periods after using it? Clean the inside of the battery compartment contacts with a pencil eraser. If you left the batteries in you likely have contacts that have corroded. Don't push too hard with the pencil eraser but clean them thoroughly. in case this isn't the issue, chances are something there has gone bad. if warrenty is still viable, use it.

I have a Canon PowerShot 850IS that is about 3 years old. It has been a great camera...up to this point. Just recently I went to take some photos and the bottom half of the images are blurry. Seems odd...

Could be that the lens cover doesn't open fully or that perhaps there is a smudge on the bottom part of the lens. Maybe a water drop. IF the front optics are dirty, use an optical-quality lens cleaning solution and cloth (if you have glasses, the lens cloth that came with your glasses). Apply a very small amount of cleaner to the cloth and gently clean the lens.

If the lens cover doesn't open, could be a grain of sand. The only thing to do is to gently move the lens cover in and out & hope the sand works its way out.

When recording I get no image - only sound. Dont see image through the lens (lens cover is open). Have flashing message up top: E:61:11

This kind of problem occurs due to two possible failures, either ccd imager chip or jammed aperture in camera lens mechanism.
Turn On camcorder while looking in lens, you will notice aperture opens like an eye opens, if that happens that means aperture is working and ccd imager chip is bad, replacement of this chip will solve problem and local camera repair shop will do this job because camcorder will take apart and soldering work is required. Jammed aperture job is even more harder and qualified tech is required to do that.
Hope these info will help you.

the problem of your camera is the ccd image sensor...better go to the sony service center for replacing the image sensor..i know it is free for replacing that sensor cause that is one of the model that sony recall produc and the cover not open error message is a poor contact of the lens cover switch...

Cover open, unable to take a picture?

The cover opens in two positions. To completely open the lens cover for shooting images, slide the lens cover over until you hear two clicks. When the camera is on the first position, you can playback images.
