Question about Canon Powershot A1000IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon power shot A1000IS displays only black screen

It started with having a black screen for the first picture, but after I took that first black picture, it was working fine. Now I can not take any pictures, while I can access and modify the menu function. Brand new battery, cleared and reformatted scandisk. Camera has been used a lot. Any ideas? Or is it a write.off?

DON'T DUMP YOUR CAMERA JUST YET! I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LOCATE SOME INFORMATION ON YOUR CAMERA AND SOME THINGS FOR YOU TO TRY. FIRST YOUR CAMERA SITE SAYS THERE IS A SWITCH ON THE BACK SIDE OF YOUR CAMERA THAT SAYS " DISP " WHICH I ASSUME MEANS DISPLAY. PLEASE TRY PUSHING THIS BUTTON AND SEEING IF THIS WORKS? NEXT YOU NEED TO TRY TO REST YOUR CAMERA. THAT IS DONE BY GOING TO SETUP>CHOOSE RESET> HOLD DOWN MENU KEY FOR 5 SECONDS AND SEE IF THAT SOLVES THE PROBLEM. THE NEXT SOLUTION MIGHT BE THAT THE CAMERA FIRMWARE MAY NEED TO BE RELOADED TO RESET THE CAMERA TO FACTORY DEFAULTS. I KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF THINGS, BUT THEY REALLY DON'T HAVE A SIMPLE ANSWER TO THIS PROBLEM. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217. GOOD LUCK!

My Canon power shot a1000is camera will not let me take a picture. When I try it just shows a white screen


Hi Dee, I believe your camera is set to a higher ISO or very slow shutter speed. Such settings are suitable for darker conditions - inside building or night shots. This can be fixed by quick buttons on the camera (wheel, pointers). I suggest you read the manual - check the section for setting the ISO, the aperture and shutter speed.
Hope these tips help.

SA1000 IS Display Black. Pictures not taking. Cannon splash screen is visible upon power on. After that, LCD is black and pictures come out the same.


Welcome to FixYa.

The battery might be worn out. Replace it with a new one. If you are using a rechargeable battery, make sure that it is fully charged and the battery can hold that much charge.

WHEN I TURN ON CANON POWER SHOT A1000IS THERE IS NO DISPLAY ON LCD SCREEN.


First check that you didn't accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. Press it once with the camera turned on just to check.
If that didn't help, 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, 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.

My Canon PowerShot SD1000 won't focus. Most


Sounds like you may not be in "Auto" mode. Press the "Func/Set" button, then press Right or Left to select the "Auto" mode.

CANON POWER SHOT SD750 DOESNT TAKE PICTURES BLACK SCREEN


Mine started working again. The only thing I can attribute to it is that I zoomed the lens in and out several times. The next time I turned it on, it worked. Go figure. I'll update if things change.

You might have switched off the display by mistake, which is used as a power saving option and can be switched on by pressing the display button.

Digital Camera Malfunction


mine just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I had downloaded pixes to the computer, went outside to take picture and it started acting up. strange lines appear on the screen, but the codes are all there, and you can view the pictures that are on the card. no, the card is not full, the batteries are fine. I think it has a virus built in to start trouble so we will go buy a new one!
