Question about Canon PowerShot S500 IXUS 500 Digital Camera
There is a Blackspot appearing on viewfinder and LCD screen that shows up on pictures. I have a Canon S500 Digital Elph. Can this be fixed?

Tips for a great answer:
Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.
Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.
If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
