Question about Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera
I had not used my camera for about two weeks and when I turned it on again and switched to camera mode to take photos, the LCD screen is black and nothing came on and therefore could not take any photos but when I switched to view photos that had been taken, the LCD came on and could see the photos properly, and could download all those photos to my laptop fine.
This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should 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:
