My canon A75 won't take photos anymore,I just get a blnk screen and when I take a photo and downoad it to my computer it comes up black. Before it went black,it would occasionally have a pink blur across the screen and then come good again.Even the pictures would come up blurry and pink.

We have a Canon SD1100 IS. We wanted to take a photo, but the screen is black. We took a photo anyway and tried to view it and it does not come on the screen, and the screen is still black.
