Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
Whenever I turn my camera on, all my LCD shows is a black screen. I can still take pictures but they all show up as black screens. Also, I can still view all my old pictures that I took before this phenomenon started happening. Are there any suggestions to what I can do to get rid of this problem? Thanks.
I have the same problem and i have contacted the Canon company and i am currentley waiting for a reply for them. I dont know how many peopled read this all that often, but i just thought i would ask a few questions for those who have been working on this problem of a while. From what i hear there is a recall on the CCD chip...true? Also, i was wondering if it is under a recall, replaced for free? and if not under the warrenty, would they replace is granted i did not do anything to it?

I have the same problem, and I called Canon, and they're making me ship my camera out myself, and pay for the shipping. And all they're doing for me is giving me a free estimate. I was wondering if there's an easier way for me to get it fixed, or if I have to go through all of the trouble of paying for shipping when I did nothing wrong and it's the CCD chip that's malfunctioning, which is their fault as a company.

I have a Ricoh Caplio RR 660 and the other day suddenly experiencing the black screen problem, could this also be a CCD problem, everything on the camera works but a black screen, take a picture but no image displayed

On back of camera, under viewing screen, there is a little button marked "DISP" (display). When my viewing screens (on both my A75 & A85) went black, it turned out it was because the DISP button had been inadvertantly pressed. Pressing it again re-opened the viewing screens. Magic!

Call Canon's Customer Support (1-800-828-4040) They agreed with the possible CCD issue. They are very helpful and sending me free shipping label. 7 - 10 days to fix. They will call if it is a different problem.
