Question about Canon PowerShot Cameras
When switching on the camera, the LCD becomes a little bit light (does not remain completely dark) but no image or anything else like an error message can be seen neither in playback, nor in shoot mode. It is also not possible to shoot any images. If I press the Menu button or switch to shoot mode, the LCD becomes a little bit more lighter, so something seems to happen but the LCD still remains blank! For some time, I've had some problems using the mode switch: it would remain in playback mode even if switched to shoot mode. So I struggled to put it in shoot mode but finally I always manaded to do that. Whether this has anything to do with my new problem of blank LCD though?

there are two reasons for this problem.
1) if the flex ribbion cable carrying signal to shutter and appartuer motor gets damaged it does not opens the shutter. In result you get only black screen and no picture.
2) another reason is defective CCD.
both the problems can't be fixed by the user itself. You have to show it to a repair man
