Are you sure nothing is blocking the lens on the front? there is a slide that slides open and you can see the lens right? Is the camera in manual mode or auto? if its on manual flip it to auto to test. Point the lens at the light, does the display change? If you bang on the camera does it work? there are some connection problems with some sensors and they can flake out after a while and stop working. Sometimes banging the camera or twisting the case it will flicker or start working again. If it does the sensor is the problem. The screen could be cracked also. Do you have the tv cables with it? try to hook it to the tv and see if you get a picture.

Why is my camera taking picture in reverse through the viewfinder?

This sounds like a mechanical problem inside the camera. If it has a flip-up mirror behind the lens, for example, the mirror may be stuck in the up position. Have it serviced by a qualified technician.

Hello i have a problem with my canon powershot A1000Is digital camera. When i open the cam it only shows black screen and when i`m trying to take a picture is also black even if i check it on the computer...

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.

The srceen stays black when you take a picture

If the menus work, that tells you the LCD is OK, so the next possible thing is the shutter is jammed shut - marginal repair now.

Camera won't show anything but black in the screen ... Or looking through the eye piece (canon S3 power shot) think the cold weather caused it

Olympus technical support you need to speak to. Don't tell them about taking a picture of the dog. Cats are OK. Dogs wreck cameras -;)
