My camera wont take the picture and screen is black

My camera was working fine one day and the following day I went to use it and it just wont take the picture. It turns on and acts like it's gonna take the picture but won't. It's been about a week now and now the screen is black and wont even attempt to try to take the picture. I dont know what to do. I am a real estate agent and have purchased this camera for my job. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks Rose

Be sure to fully charge your batteries if rechargeable - at least 14 hours. Check that your card door is closed good - it's common for the latch to break. There's a switch at the top of the door that has to close before it'll turn on.

    Sorry, but my response was not for your model camera - I posted it for another set of complaints. Is this website having problems too? It's possible you're having a CCD problem. Go here for more details about the problem and where to ship it: http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.... and http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/contro...

I am actually having the same problem... Gryfox, the issue is not a battery issue or SD card door issue. The camera actually turns on, lens comes out, but the viewfinder is black. Mine will show all the menus etc... but nothing external to the camera, its like the camers is blind. All internal functions work but camera is not seeing anything. Is it possible the lens is not working? I spent several hundred on this camera about 6 months ago and I am sorely dissapointed that so soon there seems to be a catastrophiic failure. Any help is greatly appreciated.

The camera was working fine. I imported the pictures to Picassa succesfully and turned the camera off. I then went to take new pictures and all I get is a black LCD screen and when I load into Picassa the...

The CCD is bad or the Iris is shut stuck. If it's the Iris just stuck, it might just have moisture - leave the camera in a dry place for a day. If it's the CCD - pretty much "kiss-it-good-bye". To replace the CCD is expensive - get a new camera.

Black screen; lens won't shut; totally not working now

Sound like the sensor or recoding electronics are bad. The camera is most likely beyond economical repair and I would buy a new one.

Canon Powershot sd30 Black screen

Then it sounds like there may be an error with your CCD (what comverts the light going into your camera into a digital picture, like digital film). even if your warranty is expired canon may still repair this for free. Contact canon at 1-800-OK-CANON and explain to them the problem and that you think the CCD may be defective.
