Black screen while shooting, but still taking pictures not black

I have a Canon Powershot A610 and I can review pictures on my screen but when I try to take pictures the screen is black. But it doesn't take black pictures, I just can't see them while I'm taking them. Help please?!

Nonononooooo fotomohamed, he can review just taken pictures on the LCD. The screen is working.

Actually, it sounds like you just accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save batteries (you would then use optical viewfinder). Just press it once and it should turn back on.

Black screen on canon powershot a1200 can see the symbols and takes black pictures

Did you try to press the display button several times? You then switch between different modes, while shooting and while playback. One of the modes is screen out.

Camera has a black LED screen when in the shooting mode. If a picture is taken it also is black. Previous pictures can still be viewed from the memory stix.

probably ur sensor is dead or there is dirt and moisture accumulation over ur sensor.... it is a mechanical cover and the dirt-moisture ghlue is preventing it from opening and stimulating the sensor. take it to prf repairer and get the dirt removed.

i had the same problem with my POWERSHOT A610

My camera takes picture but there all black? The

Last year my Canon PSA60 got the black screen in shooting mode. Menu display was normal and so the picture review mode.
Canon service center replaced the image sensor for free. When it happened again, I asked the service center for unit exchange (trade-in/upgrade program). Now I have my PowerShot S5IS. Good bye PSA60.

Canon has issued this in their notice page: http://support-asia.canon-asia.com/index.jsp?fuseaction=support&prod_type=notices-digitalcameras-lcd

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS

I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

I tried their solutions twice and it WORKS. My S3 is working fine now.

LCD black in shooting mode only

Defective CCD. Just happened with our A610 as well. Oddly enough just had our Canon ZR85 camcorder repaired about 1 month ago (for free) due to this same problem. Sounds like Canon isn't as forthcoming with the A610 tho. We called today and they said $100+ to repair or replace, but the following link seem to indicate that if you're persistent you can get them to fix for free. Now the battle begins ...
