This is an indication of a lens problem. It is quit possible that the camera received a knock or drop at some time. This would throw the lens out of alignment. A qualified technician can sometimes repair the lens. If not you are in for a quite expensive repair bill because the lens will have to be replaced and the camera reprogrammed.

Camera switches on but no display on screen it is black. when switch on camera screen shows canon logo and beeps then goes black on image shown on screen

Hi,

The black screen problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to cannon service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replace the lens sensor for free of cost.


Thank you

Camera Will not turn on

Pull the battery(s) out, pull the memory card out. With a compressed air can (for cleaning computers) blow out the battery compartment and very carefully clean out the memory card slot... don't bend any tabs or pins..
Also blow out any other openings around the batt compartment door/latch area.
reinstall batts and card.... any luck? Any error code on the screen?

LCD won't work in shoot mode, but work in playback mode

It's unusual that you can review pictures, but not see the menu. Take a picture with the camera. If this picture shows up black, then it's probably be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon will fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Can't take pictures

Defective mechanism,  a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
