Question about Canon PowerShot Cameras
Canon powershot reset default camera says busy
I just spoke with Canon because I had the same problem... and I was told that "BUSY" displays because the camera is busy restoring those items that can be restored to the original factory settings through the RESET ALL menu option! And therein can lie your problem... there are several items that cannot be restored through the RESET ALL menu option. Check your Advanced Camera User Guide it will tell you all the original menu settings. Those items that have not reverted to the factory or original setting must be changed manually. If you are having trouble with that then contact
Canon directly. Their service is great! Here's the USA link...

Give the camera some time. Don't remove the battery till the reset is done. I hope your battery was charged before you started the reset.
If the battery runs out of power, you must charge it comlpete, before putting it in again. I hope the reset went well. If not only try a reset with a fully charged battery.

Take a picture and download it to your computer. If the picture also shows up as black then your camera probably has 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:

The best thing to do is to first try restarting the camera. Do not push or pull on the lens as this will often cause other issues. Do not blow air in the lens as this generally moves any dirt or dust to the back and it sits on your imaging sensor, you'll end up with poor photos after that. The best thing to do is to have it serviced so it is fixed correctly and working the way it should be. The site that is great for the Powershot Models is: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only specialize in these Powershots and they have your exact lens error problem right on the site. Try them for help. They tend to be the best deal plus they're service is wonderful. You'll pay $89 for the repair, all of the service for that model and the return shipping back to you included with them. They'd be the place for help with this one, best of luck.
